Desires 1.5-2H decant to smooth out rough, young cherry notes, then delicious. Mild tannins diminish.

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. — 4 years ago

'La Rue des Noyers' Champagne 'La Rue des Noyers' Champagne 2015

Absolutely brilliant! Over and over Dehu’s Meunière proves that it desires to be my house pour. The nose of almost tropical fruit nearly took my head…sweet, pure, complex. Then the acidity sweeps the palate with a brush of brioche, sweet straw, and a hint of ripe green stem. Long, lingering finish. As the wine opens and warms, it eases it way. I’m a huge fan! — a year 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. — 4 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.

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.

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 — 5 years ago
