Nuits-Blanches au Bouge Santa Maria Valley Estate Bottled Chardonnay 2001

Incredible, my first aged CA #chardonnay #santamariavalley from a famous producer. A magnum aged 21 years onsite at the winery proved spectacular. Golden yellow in glass. Nose explodes with honeysuckle, marizpan, quince paste, preserved lemon. Opulent texture on palate, honeyed apple & citrus, vibrant acidity and wet stone finish. — 21 days ago

Domaine William Fèvre

Les Preuses Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2014

Plus ample que le Clos, moins de longueur mais quand même très bon, s’est bien ouvert et a bien ëvolué au cours de la soirée. 91-92

Not as great as the Clos drank side by side but still a great Chablis, built larger then straight, needed more time to show itself.

"Isabelle" California Pinot Noir 2017

My kind of pinot. Savoury, dark, and menacing. Powerful sandalwood balanced by ripe dark fruit. Just enough tannin to provide the structure the concentrated flavour profile needs. Sweet fruit just pulled back in time. Smoky. Yes please. — 17 days ago

La Forest Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

Typé Chablis, minéral et salin au nez comme en bouche, belle tension avec une certaine finesse et fraîcheur, très bon. 91-92

Very typical Chablis, minerality and saline at the same time, nice tension, freshness, energy, very good.

Henri Germain et Fils

Les Perrières Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Floral et fruits blancs au nez, une bouche équilibrée toute en finesse, classe et élégance, sans être riche, possède une très belle texture, super bon en ce moment.92-93

Some floral and white fruit hints in the nose, very balanced wine with classe and elegance, finesse rather then weight but still has enough richness, very good right now.

Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Really great Pinot noir. The flavour - peppery on the front of your tongue - was delicious. As ever, too light for me but surprisingly enjoyed. We had corovin of two glasses at the grove! — 17 days ago

Hildegard Estate Bottled Santa Maria Valley White Blend 2018

Delicious and refreshing with arctic thyme, lavender and mineral on the nose. Salmiac, pear and vanilla on the palate. Quite original, never tried anything similar. Well balanced though. — 20 days ago

Casanova di Neri

Tenuta Nuova Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2010

Un vin encore tout jeune, tout d’un bloc au depart mais il s’est ouvert en carafe tout au long de la soirée. Fruits noirs et rouges, tres complexe, bien qu’intense, le vin s’avère bien balancé entre les différentes saveurs, fruits, herbes, les épices. Charmant maintenant et fort bon! — a month ago
