FRNC McLaren Vale Cabernet Franc

2020 vintage. Palate is quite fascinating. Red fruits wild strawberry and dried raspberry have a definite black plum skin and violet pastis candy action going on. Dark in the herbal spectrum, like tarragon or Thai basil, but much more in the background than those assertive flavors usually reside. A little bubblegum, lilac, incense, graphite, mace, and tea round it all out. Medium-bodied, seems like maybe some partial carbonic going on. Whatever it is, a very fun and interesting manifestation of Cabernet Franc. — 2 months ago

Le Trouble Fait Muscat Petit Grain 2019

100% Muscat, 3 weeks skin contact Orange Wine, Natural Wine, Biodynamic. 12% ABV.

Almost Neutral nose some floral and apple cider type notes.

Dry apple cider, earthy notes, dried apricot, hint of bitter candied orange, fine tannin texture. Food wine.

Slightest of cloudiness with some sediment noticeable in bottle. Med+ acidity.,

Not as exciting as L'Original which is an orange wine by same producer, featuring one of my favorite varietals, Macabeu. Wine quality and style are still fantastic, in ‘Le Trouble Fait’. Happy with my purchase decision, and will continue to keep an eye out for and recommend wines by Marc Barriot.

Was expecting more floral and fruit, as experienced with ‘ZBO’ by Brash Higgins, and ‘Small Batch Series Viognier’ by King Family.

J. Lassalle

Special Club Brut 1er Cru Champagne Blend 2008

a brief romance a year or so ago with 96 Cuvée Angeline and I was hooked on Lassalle. 2012 Special Club recently was way too young and it was recommended I try 2008. It tastes younger than 2012.

A faceful of citrus, it’s a very brash wine that hasn’t even reached adolescence. The fruit is clean and bright, the wine complex and long, but put it away for a decade.

Savory flavors. Almost cured olives at times. — 8 months ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

1.5 hour decant (moderate chunky/fine sediment). A brash deep dark purplish garnet color with a little bricking. On the nose: red plum, vanilla mocha, forest floor, currants, and earth. Taste: a soft medium plus body wine with red raspberry, coffee, tobacco, pepper, and a red plumy vanilla medium plus dry finish. Very approachable with most tannins resolved....will more age smooth and sweeten them, not sure? — 4 months ago
