Huge nose of clay, creosote, granite and blueberries. A pastille like blueberry effect. Very compelling. Palate it rich and fresh at the same time. Juicy and sleek with blackberry fruit and pastille but ultra fresh and energetic. Long finish that clings on the palate. Excellent. — 3 months ago
I’m such a big fan of these wines. They definitely make my excitement level rise each and every time. Enjoyed as a birthday wine and it didn’t disappoint.
Deep maroon with violet specks. The nose is full of fruit at first with so much raspberry and cherry. Nighttime forest aromas begin to peak with shrubbery and mushrooms taking over. Medium bodied and very lively, it’s a youthful Burg meant to drink now, while still possessing nice depth. More than just an “everyday Burgundy”, this is good stuff. — 3 months ago
Probably my favourite ever wine. So smooth already, great length, supple and enjoyable with cherry, Smokey and earthy notes making it very complex but so drinkable ! Not a 10 as it will clearly get better with further ageing. — 5 months ago

A winemaker whom I first discovered at the one and only Au Bon Manger in Reims during a trip to Champagne, one to watch, Aurelien Lurquin. Unsurprisingly, his wines have all but disappeared in states. While my favorite cuvée will likely always be his 100% Meunier, Crayeres du Levant, 100% Pinot Noir Les Forcières is a gorgeous BdN. It’s powerful, rich and mineral with super floral aromatics and a stunningly luxurious texture. A beautiful young Champagne that there will simply never be enough of! — 2 months ago
Pretty happening..cab franc but black pepper not bell pepper- plenty of nice natural vibes. — 5 months ago
Just great. The fruit is just perfect, cranberry and cherry, with a tannic finish. The nose is perfect, as if berries met flowers. — 21 days ago
