'Hommage a Yves & Jean-Noel Pelletan' Cognac

Subtle and scotch-like in some respects, but nevertheless giving with strong scents of grape skin, wood spice, and white raisin. A bonkers proposition, not only was this Cognac aged in a handmade single cask by the Pelletans, the brandies that went into it are a blend of vintages ranging from 1925-1965 exclusively making this undoubtedly one of the rarest bottlings you could hope to get your hands on. Bottled at natural cask strength and with zero additives or artificial ingredients. Surprisingly pointed in its attack for something this old, but with the complexity and character you'd expect. — 6 days ago

Little confused and seems higher than the listed 46% abv. I didn’t like it or hate it - but something did not seem right. — 3 months ago

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

Pencil lead and forest floor nose, I made the rookie mistake of decanting outside in Covid-friendly but 60f setting. Never completely warmed and opened up, but nonetheless gave up phenomenal purity of black fruit, smooth tannins and rich dark berry melted into the moderate wood frame. We cognac-held our glasses to warm things up, releasing superb layers of vanilla, brambly red fruit, waves of light cassis. Perfectly cellared bottle could easily cruise 5+ more years. This would likely score far better indoors post-Covid! — 25 days ago

27 Years Early Landed Late Bottled Brandy 1993

Cognac but made against all traditional rules. Matured on whisky barrel, single cask, cask strength 51,9 %,28 years old. Yes, it tastes like a very good delicious XO cognac, but it has a bonus from the cask. Major extra points for that. Had beter cognac, but at triple the price. Allas only very limited edition. — 3 months ago

Cépages d'Or Alder Springs Vineyard Marsanne Roussanne 2018

This is a wonderful white blend from California. A great collaboration between a French and a Californian wine makers.

Showing citrus, lemons, apples, pears, minerals, herbs, spices, light earth and white pepper.

Medium bodied with medium acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with some light RS.

Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Shows nice complexity already. Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 years.

I paired it with a duck Pâté with cognac. Delicious.

A blend of Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier and Picpoul Blanc.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$40.
