My favorite Beaujolais estate. Tariffs have fucked me on this one but they will be back. Zero carbonic. Stunningly aromatic nose. Deep cherries, berries, spice and smoke. Floral, ethereal and deep. So layered. Amazingly complex. Smells like elite Burgundy. How is this estate not well known is beyond me. Likely the aspirational pricing. Palate is a dream. So juicy, nimble and complex. In a perfect place. So elegant and pure. Haunting. Volnay like. So fine and refined. Awesome red fruits that explode in the mouth. High class silky tannins and great structure. Very very long. — a day ago

I think they will be gone by fall ship 2021. I don’t think, if Biden wins he will deal with that quickly as there are more pressing issues like the pandemic. Also we have other issues like the DST that need to be addressed in a grand deal. My call is april/May that gets done. Lol tho, I’m trying to predict! @Josh Morgenthau

Yeah, I hope the next administration will address Daylight Savings Time. I’m fed up for God’s sake.

Comtesse Madeleine Blanc Côtes du Rhône Lirac White Rhone Blend 2018

Nice blend for the price.

Barrel-fermented and aged in mostly older oak, the 2018 Lirac Blanc Comtesse Madeleine is a blend of 40% Marsanne, 35% Clairette, 20% Grenache Blanc, and 5% Picpoul.

An 88-acre estate, Château de Montfaucon sits just across the Rhône River from the esteemed vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It is owned and operated by Rodolphe de Pins, a UC Davis graduate and former member of the winemaking staff at Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe.

Réserve de la Comtesse Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

When you’re learning the systematic approach to tasting (SAT) wine and really enjoying your practice. 🙋🏻‍♀️

👁 This wine has a deep ruby hue. It has clarity, noticeable tearing, and extraction on the glass.
.
.
👃 On the nose, this wine has medium(+), developing aromas of dark fruit, such as black cherry preserves, candied cassis, blackberry bramble, as well as baking spices, such as cardamom, nutmeg, and cinnamon alongside vanilla, molasses, and cedar. It also has delicate potpourri, earth, and leather aromas.
.
.
👄 On the palate, this wine is dry, with medium acidity, a full body, medium alcohol, grippy tannins, and medium(+) flavor notes consistent with the nose, including dark fruit (black cherry, cassis, blackberry), baking spices (cardamom, nutmeg), also anise, molasses, tobacco, and earth.
.
.
This wine is very good albeit youthful. It has impeccable balance of tannins, acid, and flavor notes. It could be improved with more age in the bottle, which will soften the tannins and reveal an increased complexity in tertiary aromas. This wine may be consumed with joy now, but will be improved with more aging in the bottle.
