Roses de Jeanne Les Ursules Blanc de Noirs Champagne 2017

Very hedonistic. Just so intense and concentrated… perhaps at the expense of finesse and drinkability at this stage. Don’t get me wrong, it was still a great Champagne. I just liked it a bit more when first popped, where it had a fresher apple and pear profile and more pronounced chalkiness. With air, the fruit profile really “sweetened”, showing an almost dried apricot-kind of character. It also gained a creamy, pastry richness which I thought overpowered the chalky elements. Expectedly full-bodied and vinous, with razor-sharp cut and very lengthy finish. As mentioned, this was very impressive and everyone on the table thought so too, but I found it a touch fatiguing to drink, and the fruit sweetness definitely irked me. One for the cellar, I reckon. — 14 days ago

Brunate - Le Coste Barolo Nebbiolo 2001

Nice color. No real sediment, just a touch cloudy on the last pour. Let this aerate in my glass for 4 hours before drinking

👃Red fruit but especially pretty with roses, dried fruit, tea, tar, and menthol. Just beautiful

👅Red cherry and blue fruit, tar, earth, mushroom, tea and herbs. Some tannic grip remains but this is silky. The finish is quite long with a touch of acidic bitterness. A bit of volatile acidity in the form of acetone, but not really distracting. Medium body. Composed and elegant.

Such a treat to share this legend with great friends. Sorry Vinloq, there was nothing to save as this was happily emptied🍷🍷

Roses de Jeanne La Haute Lemblé Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2018

For the price, I expected a lot more. So did the rest on the table. Probably too young as it did improve with air, but I’ve had youthful (and cheaper) Champagne’s that performed far better than this. Started off with heaps of pears, bruised apples, and almonds on the nose. The palate was concentrated, juicy and almost too fruity for me (apples and apricot for days!). Air brought about more cut and chalkiness, as well as some floral notes. In short, I expected more depth. I suspect I’m just not a fan of the vintage. Time will tell. — 5 hours ago

Les Terres Roses Bouzy Grand Cru Extra Brut Champagne Blend Rosé

9.2

100% Grand Cru from Bouzy. 64% Chardonnay & 36% Pinot Noir. No dosage.

Definitely the most complex in the tasting so far. Fruits are nicely subtle. Strawberries, cherries, some blackberries, white citrus mix, pink grapefruit & white citrus with a touch of peach. Very soft, chalky powder, same for the limestone & volcanics, touch of white spice, undertones of saline & sea fossils, yeasty, brioche, pink roses and spring flowers, a very nicely woven structure w/ a softly & smartly polished finish.

Roses de Jeanne Côte de Val Vilaine Brut Blanc de Noirs Champagne Pinot Noir 2020

Now this is what I’m talking about! Best of this Bouchard haul. I wonder how much vintage played a role. Dense and intense, yet so chiselled. Aromas of pears, peaches, brioche, white flowers, spices, and even a touch of jackfruit were just bursting out of the glass. Super dense, precise, and long on the palate. Has a really interesting plummy mid-palate note, and lovely salinity. Loved it! — 5 hours ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2005

Awesome. More soon. ….Drinking this wine is like sitting on the sofa with a big bar of dark chocolate. Very port like. Roses, leather, classic. Very dry dried figs. Plenty of tannins left. Could run for 10 more years with ease. 400$ now. Just drank a second and last bottle. One of the best Barolo’s money can buy. — 5 months ago
