Bow And Arrow

Domaine Gerard Courbis

Vieilles Vignes St. Joseph Syrah 2019

9.5

As authentic as it gets. Older than old school. Nose is iodine, granite, blackberries, and it’s all wrapped in a bow. It is so refined. Wow. This is a stunning young bottle of this. Always a 9.5 as you can see by previous notes but this is just beyond. Meaty. I mean like sick insane vivid meats. Smoked and cured. 9.8 nose. Holy shit. That palate is elegant as all can be but has serious structure and tannins but all wrapped in granite and blackberry fruit. What a finish. This is as good a St. Joseph as I’ve had in months. Wow the concentration. So granitic and mineral. Young. But incredible. 9.5 for now. — 13 days ago

Domaine Richou

Les 3 Demoiselles Coteaux de l'Aubance Chenin Blanc 1997

Vintage 1997 / Gem from my own cellar 🙂 J’adore J’adore J’adore #cheninblanc #coteauxdelaubance Pure nectar. Amazing mahony colour almost brown (ai ai I thought) but awesome fresh! Chenin is really amazing. Turkish delight and honey. Perfect balance. If God exists He has something to do with these wines, I am sure. Deep bow for MR. Richou in Mozé sur Louet. Terrific wine. /Partnered it with Blue d’Auvergne and Shropshire Blue. — 4 years ago

Domaine Bernard Gripa

Cuvée Le Berceau St. Joseph Syrah 2012

Lyle Fass
9.5

Day 2 notes as day 1 it was an end of the night open and it needed 24 hours to really show. Nose is all black fruits, tiny bit of horse, granite, meat, earth, herbs, licorice. Feral. Dense gamey olives as well. Complex aromas. Palate has insane freshness and purity. So clean and straight as an arrow with great acids blackberry fruit and complex stoniness on the finish. Compact, long and balanced. Way more upside here. — 4 years ago

Domaine Chavy-Chouet

Les Charmes Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

Lyle Fass
9.6

Silly great nose. Subtle spices, elegant apples, brown sugar, glorious mineralic spices, pear flesh and green apple skins, even jellied apples, so complex and haunting. Smells so harmonious and complete. The nose is also harmonious and orb like which is what 18 is so good at. Amazing spice and complexity on the palate and big acidity. Highest acidity of any Chavy 18 so far. Incredible inner mouth salinity, like the most gorgeous salt placement on one’s palate ever then straight into just absolutely crazy complexity and freshness. What energy and straight as an arrow. The purity is top notch. The finish just dissipates and the harmony is so gorgeous. What a finish. Minutes at least. Amazing amount of material on the palate and subtle concentration. So saline and juicy. Incredible. — 2 years ago

Liquid Farm

Golden Slope Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2015

A favorite bottle to commemorate some new ink. Always love LF, as this is a chard that definitely grows and progresses as it opens up and warms up in the glass. Beautiful notes of iris, candied pineapple, melon, toasted walnuts, and saline minerality on the nose. Gorgeous texture and purity of fruit.. bruised apple, Meyer lemon, papaya, and chalky minerals. Bright zingy acidity on the backend, but not as lean as something like Ceritas or Failla - a bit more baby fat and textural complexity on this bottle that keeps you coming back for more. A perfect hybrid of styles by Jeff Nelson and co. Paired with a creamy bow tie pasta with dried tomatoes and a spring salad. — 4 years ago

I’ve only had their entry level chard, this sounds nice. Think you told me about it when we were discussing Ceritas. Impressive ink!
