Les Grézeaux Chinon Cabernet Franc 2018

Brilliant magenta. Maybe the most delicious young Chinon (or cab franc for that matter) I’ve ever tasted. Pure varietal character with no compromises— all the freshness, lightness and peppery bite one wants— yet with perfect ripeness. And by that I mean this hovers on that magical edge where the grapes must have been picked at the ideal moment, down to the minute, to produce something not just giving but with all sorts of push and pull. Flirtatious, seductive.
The fruit and flowers are achingly fresh: black raspberries, red and black currants, elderberry, violets, roses, fresh herbs, and an ever so slight cocoa sweetness. Spot on acid and the tannins are handled so deftly that you hardly notice.
I can’t get enough of this. Masterful wine, drinking beautifully but should only get better.

@Josh Morgenthau Baudry is the producer that dominates the bottle count in my cellar. Grézeaux ages beatifully. Recently, I oppened an 2005, and it was stunning. A few times, I participated in blind tastings with top Loire CF , including Rougeard, Guiberteau, Joguet and Alliet, and Baudry always finished in the top 3. Amazing QPR!

@Francis le cave I’m with you there! The Baudrys probably outnumber all of red burgundy in my cellar. Actually, the producer holds a special significance for me; one of my fondest memories is visiting the domaine and tasting the 2005s with Mathieu on the trip that I credit with sparking my love of wine about 13 years ago. I returned to the states with an extra suitcase of Chinon!

Les Chenevottes Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

This was a stunner but I was the least impressed. Fleshy and forward with a bunch of oak but some great mineral structure that gave it a backbone. Definitely became more expressive with air. — 6 days ago

Still very pale and not evolved. The rich material and high acidities have not converged yet. The fruit here is not as pristine as those from the likes of Fichet and Montille. — 6 days ago

La Croix Boissée Chinon Cabernet Franc 2015

Loving the complexity and lots of flavors. Brick red in color, pretty vibrant still. Strong aromas. Like leather and black fruit. Medium high tannin. Medium acidity. Medium body. Tastes like a bit of leather or smoke but good fruit to balance that out. Medium long finish. I’m not a huge fan of the leather smoke notes but appreciate it for what it is and enjoying the complexity of flavors! I personally have to be in mood for this one but it’s a good one! — 9 days ago

Château de la Gravelière Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Good but not great 50/50 Cab Merlot blend.

Needed a good hour of decanting and threw a bit of sediment near the end of the pour into the decanter.

A bit on the light side for a Bordeaux but otherwise enjoyable.
