Louis Roederer

Collection 242 Champagne Blend

Pale gold with a constant stream of tiny, active bubbles. The nose is customarily stately and quite pretty with an abundance of apples at first whiff. A bit of lemon and biscuits come to play along with pears. The nose definitely matures in the glass over time revealing more chalk and stone as times goes on.

The new cuvée from Louis Roederer that focuses on individuality from one year to the next. A brand new blend based on the 2017 vintage alongside a perpetual reserve and reserve wines. 42/36/22 PN/CH/PM with a moderate dosage of 8 g/l. This is certainly a more baronial champagne but there is a bit of unexpected zest here as well. A wine that takes a bit of time, and probably years, to fully come alive and strut her stuff but it’s drinking quite well right now.

The palate features a burst of clean citrus fruit initially. Followed by a nice backbone of thankfully understated oak. Baked bread and Granny Smith apples with a touch of cinnamon. Something new from an old house and done in style. These are truly fun.

Saldo Red Blend

Finally! Expansion of the great, Saldo brand! Shit, I’d give this a 9.2 just for the new, pretty, blue label! This is everything you’d expect - masses of big, ripe, fruits-forward tastes w/ a lengthy finish. The petit Syrah seems to be most prominent in the blend w/ notes of eucalyptus & blueberry in the finish. Damn fine. Happy Xmas eve! — 7 months ago

HL Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Finally opening this wine from Jennifer’s farewell luncheon and it is exquisite! Mike Trujillo’s winemaking prowess is on display and there is the perfect blend of strength and finesse with this wine. I love these wines and sad we don’t get to look forward to more vintages of her brand but glad that TRB has taken the reigns of what the vineyard has to offer. — 2 years ago

Monprivato di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2017

Decanted for several hours in advance. Light and expressive then perfect match for some heavy food.

On reflection a nice enjoyable wine but relative to price and brand - not up to par.
