Weingut Hermann Ludes

Thörnicher Ritsch Auslese Riesling

NV; Blend of 2010 & 2011. Decanted 2H, all prior bottles 6H+.

Nose has dry crushed slate, propane gas (not distracting), piles & piles of green apple peel, lime rind, freshly juiced lime and a bag of rubber bands (thanks Josh).

Palate has cane sugar sweetened lime juice, bruised mint (mojito style), green mango (under-ripe) and over-ripe peach.

Delicious, balanced sweet/acidity on the long finish. Special, no other words need.
(Except more air appreciated, in comparison to prior bottles.)

Yeah, for sure; I'll be reliving this deal for a long time...

Domaine Parent

Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1979

Nose has syrup-y cherry, wet steel, moist-dried leaves, very over-ripe strawberry, dehydrated strawberry and wet mahogany shavings.

Palate has dried sweet cherry, cane sugar, brown bread, ripe sweet cherry, dried blackberry with faint tannins and acidity.

Tawny ruby color.

Cork pulled for slow oxidation at 5H, in a nice spot at this time.

Clearly the better of our bottles, frankly I'm quite pleased by the palate, brighter than expected, somewhat generous fruit persisting.

Second of two bottles acquired in 2021, this bottle had the higher shoulder fill. Cork was a mess, but one piece extraction with the Durand.

Paired to duck confit with green lentils. 👌

Solid improvement with more air time at 6-7H.

We are doing an Anne Parent tasting dinner Friday night.

Domaine Charles Audoin

Cuvée Marie Ragonneau Marsannay Pinot Noir 2018

Medium dark rubi robe, nose of flowers and spices with a hint of wild cherries. Medium bodied with supple tannins but strong spine buried under this great acidity and balance. Feels like modern winemaking but has no excess and is impeccable wine that drinks great now but should benefit of 3 to 5 years in the cellar. Will gain complexity. We loved it. — a month ago

Bouchard Père et Fils

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2008

Found 5 btls today that were buried in a lower corner bin in the cellar. This btl did not seem as fresh as the btl I had several years ago that was richly styled, full bodied with a honeyed, orchid fruits, some mineral, menthol & wild herbs but had a touch of oxidation. — 3 months ago

Kosta Browne

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2009

Found this buried deep in the closet. I normally wouldn’t keep a PN for 13 years but this one worked out well. Delicious with rack of lamb. And this isn’t their good stuff. — 3 months ago

Celler del Roure

Vermell Monastrell Blend 2019

A juicy Valencia blend but restrained at 13%. A bit like a new world cab franc, more on the fruit & less funk spectrum. Aged in buried mud amphora. — a month ago

Domaine Napa

Atlas Peak Pinot Noir 2013

An ‘aged’ Napa Pinot I scored for $10. Dark color still. Not rusty yet. Smells like books, fruit of the cane, and smoked meats. Flavors are spritely, bright and herbaceous. This is a feisty and fun Pinot. Plenty dry with a nice mix of old and new world going on. — 2 months ago

Gran Tifeo Bianco Falanghina 2017

ESF
9.2

Falanghina from the island of Ischia… you bet! Outstanding, almost golden color, gorgeous nose of yellow orchard fruit, saline, real marine quality, mineral, stones, some musky grassy notes. Got to keep your nose buried in the glass. Fattened up on palate, w/rigid acidic backbone, bit angular still w/tart orchard fruit and plenty of minerality & sea influence. Just bad ass — 3 months ago
