Clos Saint Jean

Deus Ex Machina Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2007

Even better than last year’s bottle, which I called “the devil’s work” and rated 95. So much more emerging and the finest, grainy tannins just melted on my plate. Burnt cocoa, velvety cassis. Never got warmed up due to Covid doors open. This has decades to go. — 2 days ago

Les Hauts Doix Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

I rated this wine twice quite average and this bottle is strangely very good. Red fruits, medium weight, masculin chambolle, Smokey, raspberry goodness. Old style. — 9 days ago

Suá Extra Brut Sparkling Blend

Agree with the one other person that rated this sparkling wine. Go-to affordable sparkling for a good brunch beverage. Slightly nicer than than the average. Drinkable. Nothing special, but not bad for the price. — 3 days ago

Ulysses Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

Prob opened early but wanted to try. Blueberry and blackberry fruit, green pepper. Nice earthiness and structure. A bit too highly rated in my mind — 10 days ago
