Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2006

Celebrating my b-day today with this beautiful Golden hay Chardonnay and sushi! Yummy!!! Nose is subtle but complex. Initially, Apple-pear and coconut dominate the senses followed by lemon zest, baked apple and sandalwood. Taste - white peach, apricot fruits and floral are soft on the palate, but the texture of a chalky oil feel coat the entire mouth and secondary notes of orange rind, lemon, green melon and minerals give this wine its long finish. A great evening of celebration and gratitude! — 11 days ago

Comtes de Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2008

Absolutely stunning. Hallucinatory fruit. Poached pear, baked green apple, stewed quince, nutty flavors, toasted poppy seeds, grains, and just a beautiful savory finish that is so persistent. Very long, and then a high tone perfume sneaks in. Peony and exotic flowers peek through on the finish. — a month ago

it is indeed beautiful and so hard to keep one’s hands off. Shame that it shot up to $300+ . . . great stuff.

Its one of the best and finest champagnes we tasted in the last decade or so.

Brut Champagne Blend 1996

POV: you’ve been asking your dad for 15 years when we can drink this wine and he finally opens it to celebrate your wedding weekend. Golden hue. Lemon, bruised apple, brioche. Soft moussey bubbles, dry and velvety on the tongue. Absolutely AMAZING to drink. — a day ago

Grand Brut Champagne Blend

Really nice. Toast and Brie on the nose, big tart apple fruit, nutty, minerality and great acid. Wish I had come cheese or seafood, but great on its own :) — 19 days ago

Carneros Chardonnay 2020

Silky, smooth, crisp green apple tart flavor, medium acidity, pairs well with seafood, salad, and bold enough to stand on its own. — 11 days ago

Jacques Selosse

Initial Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

The three of us from Omaha were presented this wine upon arrival, double-blind fashion in large burgundy-style glasses. The appearance was a burnished gold color with slight visual signs of gas only when agitated. On the nose, there are signs of oxidization with a slightly cheesy and nutty thing on the nose along with some bruised apple and pear. The palate was like fireworks. Layers of fruits, nuts, spices and the creamiest of textures. At first, based on the smell and the appearance, I thought this might be a vintage Champagne, 1996 or even possibly 1990. However, after tasting it, I was compelled to shift direction as it reminded me of some of the more remarkable NV wines made in a solera-style like Bereche “Reflan d’Antan” or Selosse “Initial”. Welp…basically nailed it. How I wish this wine could be in my life more often. — 16 days ago
