Not the best Vosne-Romanée in my wine history, but still very good. Rather light, high acidity. Some red fruit, a wet forest floor, nice licorice finish. — 6 days ago

More Special Club goodness and these bottlings just never disappoint. Pale straw with mildly effusive perlage. A sharp, striking nose shows pears and honeydew off the top. Mandarin oranges, honeycomb, and some really nice mint. With time in the glass, delicate white flowers and dough began to show off. Really, a rather interesting and pleasant nose.
A one off bottling from the single Grand Cru vineyard La Blanche Voie in Verzy. Equal parts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with no dosage. Intense, intense champagne but softened slightly with time and air. Wonderful tension and alacrity. Very balanced.
On the palate, green apples burst from the glass. Those citrus notes reappear and then recede gracefully. A little red cherry, a dash of spice. All balance with everything in its right place. Truly, a beautifully harmonious champagne. — a month ago
This Merlot is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. It is a pop and pour crowd pleaser that is silky, velvety and plush without the sweet clingy-ness. Just exudes luxury and at half a Benjamin a pop it is a steal, trust me. Paired with New York strip steak and mushroom and the match was fit for any king. Cheers! — a month ago
Open cork, then fruity scent came out. With citrus. Small bubbles is ascending. Even in small, but energetic and stimulated. Liquor flavor. A bit dry. Makes my mind rich. Toast, green. Meet with Japanese food. @2150, domaine -, 210624-210708 — a month ago
Great value Bourgogne punching well above it’s weight. Dark ruby, with black cherry and interesting forest floor/cedar notes. Nice sweet ripe fruit, but with good acidity. More complex and attention grabbing than many a village Burg I’ve tasted. Glad I bought 12! — 2 months ago
