Luci & Deare Kröver Paradies Trocken Spätlese*** Mosel Riesling 2020

Lyle Fass

Stunning nose. Huge apricot and peach. Love the fruit driven aspect of the aromas here. But beyond that is the most unreal and clean minerals. Pear juice as well. So inviting. Some honey and cantelope as well. A very well rounded nose. Palate is gorgeous. So elegant, round and ripe. Amazingly clean. Love these 12.5% trockens! Juicy as juicy can be and nice, serene and caressing acidity. Great depth and concentration but oh so nimble, sappy and pure. Lovely finish that has all the apricot and sweet peaches one desires. Stunning wine. So balanced and perfect. Amazing complexity and so accessible. As Paradies always is. Mineral drive of a finish with lovely piquant citrus and amazing, engaging fruit. So good.

As this airs the minerality and structure come out more. As does the finesse. What a finish. The density yet how nimble. So pure.

Light and bright.. superb with pizza.. Baroness very happy as I am... outside of football the Italians aren’t known for light.. this lad offers a maldini from with-a spark of flavours which can only be rivalled by the great ac Milan team of the 90s.. a mix which delivers happiness — 5 years ago

Château Clerc Milon

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

On the nose; dark cassis, blackberries, blueberries, dark cherries, black plum, black raspberries, caramel, dark, rich soil, dry stones, caramel, dry stems, fresh violets & dark, fresh & dry florals. The body is full, round, lush, thick with nicely resolved, soft, velvety tannins. It glides in the over the palate. Creamy, lush, thick; blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, black plum and poached strawberries bring up the rear of the fruits. Mocha chocolate, caramel, dark soil, stones, steeped tea, crushed rocks, bramble, suede leather, liquid violets, fresh dark florals & acidity is soft and perfect. The finish is flat out pure elegance. Creamy fruits and beautiful complimentary soft, semi-sweet earthiness. This is my first of bottle of 10. I'll have another each year for the next nine years. Enjoy noting the changes in the bottle. It's drinking beautifully and has at least another 10 plus years of good drinking ahead. Photos of; Clerc Milon, their barrel room, private tasting room and our friend Jean who is their Winemaker since 09. Prior to that he was the Assistant Winemaker at Opus One for 10 years. He is perhaps the nicest person we've met. We are not the only ones to say that. He was nice enough to allow us to work the 12 Clerc harvest and scheduled a dinner for us at Chateau Mouton Rothschild. An amazing dinner accompanied by 76 Mouton out of 6L. Andy Warhol did the label. He also managed for us to have lunch with the Baroness the next day where 82 Mouton was served. May she RIP. Sadly, she passed away just short of two years later. The Clerc vineyards are adjacent to Chateau Mouton Rothschild. Love the two Baffoons on their label. Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there! Cheers. 🍷 — 5 years ago

Domaine Jean-Jacques Girard

Les Fichots Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Lyle Fass

Love this cuvee. Darker nose than the Les Vergelesses. Tree bark, moss, mid season cherries. Huge minerals. Almost a limestone feeling. Wild apples. Wet earth. Savory. Sweet. Feral and wild. Just stunning. Even some black cherry after some air. Just awesome. Big huge red and black cherry fruit. Lovely electric almost Rieslingesque limestone minerality. Explosive and deep with awesome purity and earthy sweetness. Terrific delineation of flavor and so much material yet so light and delicate even. Only in Burgundy. Super complex and ripe and big tannins suggest even more aging if one desires. — 3 years ago

Château Bois Clair

Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

The Baroness sister presented this and we loved it.. colour, aroma lit up the room. The flavours offered a superb experience, woody without being oaky, fruits but not fruity... as we say in these parts.... RELOAD — 4 years ago

Cakebread Cellars

Napa Valley Chardonnay 2017

For some reason I had been craving this for weeks so today I had to satisfy my desires. Chalky, lots of minerality, and a slight synthetic nuance 🤔 Good nonetheless. — 3 years ago

@David T My experience with Cakebread is limited, but what I’ve had I’ve always enjoyed; namely their old school Vine Hill Ranch Cab. I’ve got a 2010 Dancing Bear just waiting to be polished off 🤔 Soon, I think.

@Ryan Vento Wait in the DB... I'm sitting on some '06, which I still do not believe is ready yet.

@Severn Goodwin That’s what the little voice in the back of my head was saying, thanks for vocalizing it. I certainly like the idea of sitting on it because it’s a special bottle, so I’ll hold off on it 👌🏻 Looking forward to whenever the time comes, though.

Composizione Veneto Rosso Sangiovese

This is a cracker. I'm having it with fish and it's only adding to the meal..Bacchus the flavours are leaping across my palate testing every sensory tip... Juve beat Barca the other night and this is another victory for Italia... let's hope the baroness is feeling like a Roman battle later... — 5 years ago
