Château Du Clos Sainte Anne

Domaine Anne Gros

Richebourg Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1996

Tasted blind. Dark purple with tawny rims. Powerful sharp nose. Notes of black fruit, pepper, rhubarb, dark spice and dark earth. Has that tinny mouth feel that I’ve associated with 96s before. I find this young and harsh, with a massive core of fruit hidden underneath. The profile implies to me it’s Vogue and I throw out a 99 Musigny guess. Others liked this wine more than me. I question if the fruit can ever balance with the in-your-face acidity and structure. Some 96s have stated to soften and move into a drinking window. For me, not this one yet. — 9 days ago

limited experience w her wines but not a big fan. Wasn’t too oaky?

There was definitely some oak there... it’s the shrill acidity that dominated the experience tho. Maybe with a lot of air it might have resolved and softened up a bit

Richebourg Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1993

This is deep and intense. A gorgeous, velvety deep nose. Intense dark fruit. This is wonderfully lush and plush. Still youthful with almost citrus on the edges. True richebourg. Great. — 2 days ago

Anne de Chypre Roussette de Savoie Altesse 2018

This deserves higher ratings! I love Alpine whites. Never had Altesse before, but it reminds me of good Swiss Chasselas. Very dry of course, but distinctly mineral and mountainous with a fruity, elegant aroma. — 6 days ago

Whoa Nelly! Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017

Bottlehouse, $18

Very light in body and color, translucent. Smooth red fruit on the nose no alcohol burn. Nice strawberry/cherry and very light, good summer time wine. Good tartness but maybe a touch too much but has a lingering sweetness that helps balance it. Reminds me more of something like a gamay than a pinot noir. Fair value for the price and was a fitting way to honor the anniversary of Nel's passing :(

Cuvée Anne Willamette Valley Chardonnay 2015

Much better than the same wine two years ago. Really focused and long. The oak is glossy but integrated. — 23 days ago

Domaine Georges Vernay

Sainte-Agathe Côtes du Rhône Syrah 2014

Dark garnet in color, nose of some earth & leather. After just a little air it was wonderful- on the lighter side for a Syrah. On the dry side, mildly acidic with medium tannins. Very smooth- a really nice wine. — 10 days ago
