Montée Rouge Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

I’ll preface this with the fact that I don’t drink a lot of Pinot as I’m not a huge fan.

This was an awesome rec from the guys at Amathus! 30+ minute decant. Lovely red color with ever so slight brown edges. Nose contained oak, vanilla, and strawberries. Cherries, cream, maple syrup, and cinnamon on the palate. Definitely on the sweeter side. This was like drinking cheesecake with cherries and cinnamon on top. Reminded me of the Dimchurch Shiraz, except in Pinot form. Could have been a little deeper, but had a great finish! Paired lovely with a sausage stuffed chicken breast, small Cornish potatoes, and cinnamon covered pears. One of the best dinners I’ve cooked in a while too, so I’m sure that impacted the experience and rating :)

Best Pinot I’ve ever had!! Buying more!

et Philippe Starck Brut Nature Champagne Rose Blend 2012

Absolutely delicious. No doubt Brut Nature the acidity is not subtle but it is beautifully balanced lemon and strawberry, very pleasurable and pure. Pinot driven no off notes as is the roederer style. — 15 days ago

Grand cru vintage Champagne Blend

Grand cru - vintage - yum.

Smells of fresh corn biscuits with a lot of yeast.
Granny Smith - classic, tangerine acidity. Tight and lengthy bubbles.
Citrusy finish and lengthy.. happily lost in thought..

Les Gruyaches Meursault Chardonnay 2017

Still loving this wine every vintage as usual but that 2017 is such a treat. Slight lemon zest with such minerality and lovely acidity that is elegant and so fine, classy and balanced, nice length, superb bottle.

Notes constantes avec ce nez un peu citronné, frais et élégant. Bouche magnifique, minéral et presque tranchante mais toute en finesse, équilibre et élégance au rendez-vous, vraiment superbe. 91-92
