Paradiso Sangue di Giuda Barbera Bonarda 2019

Not my usual thing but fun and definitely tasty. Frizzante, 8.5% alcohol, off-dry and young but with nice acids and savory layers. Cherry, juicy plums, almond, a little farmy, some mineral undertones. Next time as an aperitivo or with dessert. From Flatiron Wines. — a month ago

La Garenne Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2013

Elegant if a little thin. Beautiful lemon pith and hints of almond cream with flinty mineral undertones. Broad acidity on the palate which gives great tension to the wine, but does feel just a bit muted on the palate. By no means unenjoyable though. Still has some life left in the bottle for cellaring. — 18 days ago

Villero di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 1996

This bottle was outstanding. Opened with a rusty hue but 4 hours in the decanter and the color came back ruby red and the classic Nebbiolo notes were abounding. Dare I say it was even fresh at times. This ethereal wine has more years ahead. But it was outstanding tonight. An absolute stunner. — 6 days ago

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2017

Powerful, & dark fruited. This took a bit to fully open up. It started with heavy oaky spice & black tea tannins. The rich black cherry character moved to the front as well as a more silky elegant texture. Chassagne & Santenay vineyards here. Needs some air or a little more time in the bottle, but a very nice wine. — 19 days ago

"En la Rue de Vergy" Morey-Saint-Denis Pinot Noir 2011

Superb Morey Villages that needed a bit of time in the cellar to open up some. All the power of a Morey with freshness and elegance, nice pure fruit, lovely and silky tannins, long delicious finish, really good especially given this cold 2011 vintage. 90-91 easy.

Superbe Morey Villages qui méritait du temps en cave pour s’adoucir un peu et s’ouvrir. Toute la structure d’un Morey avec du beau fruit très pur et des tannins veloutés sur une finale persistante, fraîcheur et élégance aussi, vraiment très bon, compte tenu du millassez froid aussi. 90-91

Les Pins Monbazillac 2012

A luscious solid gold color in the glass with a highly expressive nose of apricots leaping at you. Lemon cream, maple syrup, and sweet pears run rampant. A touch of almonds to go with constant honey tips this off.

Similar to the Sauternes we all know and love, Monbazillac has a higher percentage of Muscadelle and are a bit more of a secret. Sweet but never cloyingly, there’s nice balance and focus instead of an overwrought syrupy mess. The palate follows the nose closely with all the apricots and pears you could ever want. Spice abounds, along with more almonds and molasses. A very pretty dessert but one with heft and character.
