Cast Iron Chicken

Domaine Courbis

La Sabarotte Cornas Syrah 2012

This is settling in nicely, the terroir is beginning to show through the winemaking and becoming more truthful to Cornas. Oak and extraction are integrating nicely. Granular tannin, firm mineral feel on the back end. Blackberry, olive, beef blood, fur, cast iron, leather, ash, forest floral, autumnal. — 3 months ago

Jérôme Chezeaux

Les Pruliers Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2006

The last of my Chezeaux 2006s, the first vintage I bought from him on release. This took a little time to open up (an hour or more after opening, without decanting), but once it did, it was really nice. Good earth and fruit (darker cherry) on the palate. The nose was a little dull even after opening, but with a good swirl of the glass, it got going. Enjoyed at a Covid dinner at home with a friend: farmed duck breast (D’Artagnan) cooked by sous vide (garlic, shallots, rosemary and some sherry) and seared on a cast iron skillet, sautéed mushrooms, and haricot vert with toasted almond slivers. — 2 years ago

St. Joseph Blanc White Rhone Blend 2013

This was a real surprise. Pale gold in the glass, quince paste, tangerine, floral, a touch nutty, but with real acidic verve—not even remotely tired or flabby. Not quite on the level of Gonon Oliviers but really fantastic. Maybe I should rethink my biases re: rhone whites. Excellent with cast iron chicken with olives and artichokes — a year ago
