Cuvée E.J. Thevenet Quintaine Viré-Clessé Chardonnay 2016

No formal notes, but such a joy...
Had it with wifey in plastic glasses, on the lawn, on a sunny day, on the right side of the street.
It was a magnum and we could not stop drinking it. I possess 2 more bottles that i should have no hurry to open, was such a success!!!😍😍🙏🙏
Super long after taste

Millésime Brut Champagne Blend 2011

Great bottle,

This all estate grown gem from Baron Fuente is composed of 45% Chardonnay, 40% Meunier, and 15% Pinot Noir from around Charly-sur-Marne. This drinks great right now because of the long ageing that the team at Baron Fuente have lavished on it, but will also keep great in good storage over the medium term.

Domaine de la Bongran Cuvée Botrytis Chardonnay 2006

Thanks for opening this, GL! What a compelling drop. Botrytised Chardonnay from Macon. Not as rich as a Sauternes, nor as precise as a TBA - I felt like it lay somewhere in between. All your typical botrytis aromas of honey, dried apricot, caramel, hay, chrysanthemum, mushroom, and a whiff of vinegar on the nose. For me, the palate's where it really shone - rich and sugary, as one might expect, but with juicy fruit notes and good acidity to keep it at the brink of being cloying. The acidity suprisingly held a pretty straight line across the palate, rounding off a little in the rear. My first Bongran and I can see now why the name often appears in conversations on the world's great sweet wines. — 3 months ago

Back in 2002 I grabbed like 50 cases of half bottles of 94 cuvee botrytis for the store I worked for. Oh man. What a wine!

@Lyle Fass 50 cases! Oh man what a sleeper of a producer... still is now, though I can't say it's very easily available. Pretty geeky wine if you ask me. Haha.

@Aaron Tan they also have one with less botrytis and in a VT/Feinherb style as well. It’s as wonderful. So geeky and impossible to find. I got lucky on that 1994. We sold 1/2’s for $19.99 back then.
