Estate Bottled Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay 2016

I re-learned how good this producer is. It’s complex, layered and textured, with just the right amounts of almond, brioche and honied notes on the nose and mid palate. While the acidity is fairly restrained, this presents like it has many more years ahead of it.
There’s an informality and freshness to this wine which belies its quality and sheer elegance. If you don’t want to spend on Aubert, Kistler et al., you should pay a visit to this producer.

@vinokeeno, great point. I’ll walk back my comments on Mt Eden cos it sucks and blows 🥹 (big tongue in cheek here).

Les Combettes Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Shay A
9.2

A producer I’m not familiar with. Les Combettes combines the intensity of Puligny with the generosity of the Meursault Charmes, which it borders.

I slow ox’ed this for an hour or so before enjoying half the bottle, then re-corked the second half for the next day. Definitely no pre-mox here, thankfully. Day one sported a mellow profile…medium bodied with honeysuckle, lemon oil dripped over limestone, and a high acid quick finish. Day two showed really nice improvement…channeled a bit of a Mersault flair with its richer/more rounded texture showing lemon-honey and sea salt popcorn. I’d hold this 3-5 more years.

La Pousse d'Or

Clos d'Audignac Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

This bottle takes me straight back to some of the highest quality red Burgundies I’ve ever tasted. Where the focused and seductive ripe red cherry note is the protagonist. The insaciable and provocative tartness is the antagonist. And the alluring earthiness provides the most perfect backdrop with layer over layer of drama unfolding. Stellar wine on the pallet.

PS & note to self: this is a pop n’ pour kinda wine that only needs five or ten minutes of aeration at the moment. After opening, re-cork and enjoy until the very last drop; it will oxidize rapidly {turn from the purest ripe red cherry notes to predominately acidic ones}.

@Andrew Holod this is the first bottle I’ve tried from this producer. I have another just like this in my cellar and two other 2016 re Burgundies that are village specific. I’ll mention you in a comment when open them. Hope this helps.

I will certainly try to remember to do so. I have some 1999, 2005 and 2011.

L'Ecole No. 41

Ferguson Vineyard Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

Flagship L’Ecole. Bought this at the winery but only one. Saw it on the shelf at the local grocer so popped it to taste. Such grip, tight fruit, tannin, built for the long haul, showing hints with a few hours of air. Re-buy. Excellent. — 2 months ago

Winzenberg Grand Cru Riesling 2018

$20 at WTSO. Pleasant, nice acidity. Typical Alsatian Riesling. Not spectacular but at this price probably a re-buy for me … great summer wine. — 7 days ago

2022 winter. I remember this bottle being one of my favorites from this range - “à point”, open, with lots of flavor and good depth. Let’s see how the re-stock bottles I bought are. — 19 days ago

Les Brureaux Chenas Gamay 2017

A fine and precise expression of gamay that nevertheless remains crunchy and juicy, with material, freshness and an interesting finish. Cuvée of old vines bringing concentration and interesting potential for evolution. To be tested in a few years.
