Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

2000 vintage. Decanted and tasted over the course of 1.5 hours. Expected amount of sed. Chunky, unresolved nose. Medium body. Still too youthful. Would try to give it another 7-10 years if possible. Initial tree branches/greenery dipping into morning fresh water morphed into classic graphite/lead pencil after 45 mins in the decanter. There was a slight metallic streak on the finish that appeared about 20 minutes in and still hadn't dissipated after 1.5 hours. More nimble than the og bad boys from this estate ('86, '88, '89, '90) and a bit less weighty. Mostly positives along with a few (mostly) minor quibblings. A ways to go, tho, before hitting the summit this estate established four decades ago. 9.24.23. — 6 days ago

Cuvée Sainte-Anne Brut Champagne Blend

Mostly 19. Yogurt covered cherry, baked pear, mandarin orange, orange pith, caramel, vanilla, yeasty but not overly so. So concentrated and rich at less than 5g/L dosage. Beautiful stuff. — 12 days ago

Pierre et Anne- Marie Lavaysse

Le Petit Rosé De Gimios Rosé Blend 2020

Some of the initial blast of fruit has expectedly faded, but still nicely balanced between fruit and acid. This was a crowd pleaser. Bottle disappeared very quickly. — 5 days ago

Domaine Anne Gros

Richebourg Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2009

Initially quite appealing but as it opened I enjoyed it less. Nice structure but too closed. Perfumed, ripe fruit and lots of earth. — a month ago

Clau de Nell Anjou Cabernet Franc 2018

Tight & closed with dark black currant, graphite, cracked pepper, green bell pepper and an animalistic whiff. With time more fruit comes to the front but also some bay leaf, the graphite turns into stony minerality.
On the palate this is tightly wound around a core of pure black fruit and graphite & iron minerality. Amazing energy & power yet in a closed, quiet way. Gloved. Terrific depth. Love the cloves & bay leaf & rocky minerality in the super long finish.
This is quite profound - and is so very young.
A great wine from an unusual place. Love it!
