Domaine des Comtes Lafon

Clos de la Barre Meursault Chardonnay 2013

sealed with a Diam30, it’s fortunately not reductive. Solid Meursault with superb length. Orchard fruits and lemon wrapped around a core of acidity. Needs some time to develop but no crime drinking tonight. — 8 days ago

Clos des Ruelles Monopole Mercurey 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018


Weak for a #premiercru #burgundy not bad but not great. Fruity and light complexity #pinotnoir aromas of creaminess and malolactic conversion on the nose. Some good red fruits like red cherry and red berries on the palate but it is really two dimensional and lacking a lot of complexity and depth. Alcohol at 14% also seems out of whack. — a month ago

Château La Fleur des Graves

Graves de Vayres Rouge 2016

2016 vintage. A wine from the confidential Graves de Vayres appellation in Bordeaux, made by Yves Glotin (Château Goudichaud) who is also president of the Syndicat des Graves de Vayres. A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon (50/50). Fresh red fruit (cherries, strawberries) and spicy oak in the nose. Medium-bodied, juicy, round and fresh, well-structured without hard edges. Good length with retronasal red fruit and some spiciness. Well worth seeking out and good value at 14 euro. Abv. 13,5%. — 4 days ago

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Lyle Fass

Gorgeous nose of violets, cassis, black fruits, really floral, fresh potting soil, so pretty. Just wafting. Palate is ripe, juicy, tangy and fresh. Sappy and so pure. Youthful and taut but very measured. Really great showing for this wine. Black fruits just burst on the palate with such clarity and purity. Awesome stoniness on the finish. Very refined tannins. Long finish. Much room to improve. — 15 days ago

Clos Des Chenes Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Lyle Fass

What a wine. Stunning, ethereal nose of bright mid to late season sappy cherries, cocoa, minerals, huge and airy. Very expansive and pure. Stunning array of layered aromas. All on a bed of rocks and limestone. So so impressive. Incredible density and elegance with classic tell tale Clos des Chenes stoney minerality. Long, chewy and dense with superb purity and structure. Better in 10 years but fun to peek into today. — 2 days ago

Château Tour des Gendres

Pet' Nat' Bergerac Sauvignon Blanc

70% SB, 30% Chenin

Gold and green apples, lemons, white flowers, and saline minerality on the finish. Bright but with a little texture as well. Paired with lobster risotto with a hint of cayenne pepper.

Réserve Vacqueyras Red Rhône Blend 2009

Facilement reconnaissable dans son style Reynaud. Le vin m’est apparu moins gourmand que le 2010 et même que le Cote du Rhone bu dernièrement... il manquait un petit oumf en bouche. — 2 days ago

Clos du Haute-Combe Juliénas Gamay 2018

Very direct and pure expression of gamay « nature ». Round, with the usual notes of the grape variety, floral, fruit. Quite discreet aging notes. Very pleasant as an aperitif, as much as light vegetarian dishes, pizza, fish ...

Expression très directe et pure du gamay nature. Rond, avec les notes habituelles du cépage, floral, fruits. Notes d’élevage assez discrète. Vin léger et gourmand., très agréable dès l’apéro, autant que des plats légers type végétarien, pizza, poissons...

Clos De La Roilette

Fleurie Gamay 2018

Airy with lots of aromatic floral nuances and generous red/black fruits. 2018 is very opulent! The carbonic maceration which gives this English-sweet side characteristic of Beaujolais is here associated with an aging giving it a subtle Burgundy character which suggests a good aging potential over 3, 4 years. A sure value on Beaujolais.

Un Fleurie qui fait honneur à l’appellation. Aérien avec beaucoup de nuances aromatiques florales justement et du fruits rouges et noirs généreux. 2018 est très opulent! La macération carbonique qui donne ce côté bonbon-anglais caractéristique des beaujolais est ici associé à un élevage lui apportant un caractère bourguignon subtil qui laisse présager un beau potentiel de garde sur 3, 4 ans. Une valeur sur du Beaujolais.

Clos du Papillon Savennières Chenin Blanc 2006

I sacrilegiously had this chambré. Sorry. HOWEVER, it was fantastic, the acidity was still on show (I'd have been open to more) and pears had become almonds honey and roses. Long finish, complex, dry, satisfying. Definitely stick it in the garage for an hour or two first. — 2 days ago
