This N/V Blanc is truly one of our favorites. On its own a 94 but, with an intermittent splash of white burgundy and caramel, Granny Smith apple, near perfect!
I’ve always wanted to this paring and last night it became reality. 🤩 😳 🍏 — 3 days ago
A bit funky on the nose. With air this opens up. Looks and tastes of its age. Kind of an iron note. Served blind. Guests guessed Pommard. I can’t say I disagreed with their guess even though it was incorrect. Seemed more like Pommard than Volnay to me. — 16 days ago
Vintage 2002 in 2020. This aged pinot noir is full of life and has a typical Burgundy nose: cherries, roses and earth notes. It is elegant and has enough acidity, (soft) tannins and fruit to age another 5 years or more. For me an another example that Burgundy wines, from a good vintage, can age beautifull 🍷 — 10 days ago
Dark fruit, a touch oaky still but still a medium bodied wine, fruit forward with tannins that have a nice texture and some richness to the palate. Very nice QPR.
Fruits noirs, mures, boisé pas tout à fait digéré mais une bouche de corps moyen assez avenante avec un beau fruité assez riche, bouche savoureuse avec des tannins qui ont une belle texture. Très bien pour le prix. 89-90

Comparing 2 cool climate Syrahs - this is the 2nd one from Tasmania. Black pepper with a touch of asparagus (SO2) which blew off. After a few hours delightful florals of gardenia and pansy. Intriguing to say the least. On the medium plus palate fruit and spice driven - more rich than expected from a Tasmanian Syrah. Really delicious with ripe fleshy plum melded with the spicy pepper. Finishing with medium minus tannins. A classy cool climate Syrah a few points above the Salo from NZ. This Mon Pere won the 50th Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy at Royal Melbourne and hard to get from this boutique producer. I could only get 2 bottles and this was the last one. Sold out in a day after winning the Trophy. Total production of 250 cases. Wish I had a few more left. Made by Nick Glaetzer whose family built their reputation in the Barossa like Amon Ra. — a month ago
