Father’s Day at Jane for mom bd. Jordon knows and likes this wine. More like a Burg in its complexity and balance and light footed profile. Yum. — a month ago

La Colombiere Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2016

Explosive nose full of CLB spice and piercing red fruit and violets. Hardly any reduction here on the pnp. It continued to gain weight and complexity over time. Complexity as well as intensity both on the nose and the palate that is just simply not associated with village wine. It’s so pure, balanced and transparent, and continued to blossom and expand over the course of dinner. Tannins are smooth and fine grained and the finish is very persistent. — 2 months ago

Monopole Clos du Château Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2017

Young CLB never ceases to amaze. Pop and pour magic once again as high toned red fruit, violets and distinctive CLB spice soar from the glass with almost no reduction getting in the way. Finely detailed and ethereal palate with a simultaneous intensity of vivid fruit and a mineral infusion that leads to its seamless transition to finish. Always a special experience to drink CLB. — a day ago

Château Belair (Dubois-Challon)

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Oh my. This is a stunning classical right bank wine done with soil in mind. Great dark fruit meets minerality and flowers, long, elegant, and really young. This is the very best St Emilion has to offer and its a baby, will require still some 5 to 7 years to be at its best. There is no big wood here nor malolactic in barrel, its done the old fashion way and its amazingly good. Top notch stuff, buy if you can find. — 2 months ago

It was bound to happen eventually...my final btl, and perhaps best yet. A lovely, exuberant Moulin-a-vent Sad this is my final btl, sigh. — 2 months ago

Aux Cras Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Absolutely stunning. Quite the contrast to the Colombiere, as this is much more serious and structured and the Aux Cras terroir shines through. New oak is more prevalent, of course, but it’s so integrated already and doesn’t get in the way. The nose is incredibly intense and aromas of dark fruit, sweet spice and a wet rock minerality waft from the glass. While this wine is let’s say, more masculine and less sexy than the Colombiere, there is still a seductive Vosne-like perfume that’s so undeniably CLB and lures you in. The palate is powerful and is full of energy, while at the same time remaining focused and seamlessly delineated. To no surprise length is superior to the Colombiere. Totally irresistible now, but boy this will be a knockout down the road. — 2 months ago
