Good. Interesting body, fuller than some whites. The Verdejo and Sauv Blanc combo work well. Would buy again — 14 days ago

Camus Pere & Fils

Mazy-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2005

Thanksgiving 2020; a quiet day with just my wife and the kitties, hopefully 2021 brings family and dear friends back for group enjoyment of this Holiday.

Nose has mashed cherries, moist garden soil, red raspberry smeared on old leather, blackcurrant, currant leaves, ripe plum and old tobacco.

Palate has black cherry, plum, cedar box, under-ripe blackberry, under-ripe blackcurrant, dry soil with iron, dried cherry but still with solid tannins. Medium acidity with a long finish.

Likely the best bottle of Domaine Camus Père & Fils we've had, in stellar shape with at least a solid decade in front of it, wow!

Thanks @Mario Vaillancourt we're purposely quiet this year; my work schedule still has me traveling quite a bit, so best to be cautious with the extended family. At least there's a good cellar here to keep us hydrated.

Our cats were hoping for 🦃, it was eyed intently prior to an excursion into the oven, then it was all paws on table after cook/rest 3.5h later. Turkey was enjoyed by all of us.

Matthiasson

Village Napa Valley Chardonnay 2019

First time trying this “villages” Chardonnay from Matthiasson. For the price quite nice. I think it satisfies the concept of a more accessible less expensive introduction to their Chardonnay - ie, a villages wine - quite well. Very good pairing with a goat cheese and broccolini tart. — 2 days ago

Just popped this the other night too. It’s no Matthiasson Napa valley white, but agree qpr is solid

Domaine Berlancourt

Cuvée Les Champans Bourgogne Pinot Noir Rosé 2016

Thanksgiving 2020; a quiet day with just my wife and the kitties, hopefully 2021 brings family and dear friends back for group enjoyment of this Holiday.

Prior notes tweaked, still going strong, I'm still liking the '16 over the '17 vintage.

Nose has strawberry, roses, cut tangerine, juiced Clementine and dry earth.

Palate is strawberry-tangerine (light), wet minerals, so much finesse, yet light in the mouth, just stunning.

Artadi

Viñas de Gain Selección de Añada Rioja Tempranillo 2002

Just needed a couple decades to come to life👍🏼
K&L notes

The Artadi Estate was created in 1985 by the dynamic, visionary winemaker, Juan Carlos Lopez de la Calle. His objective was to seek and nurture the concept that Tempranillo , when cultivated at high altitude, low-cropped and from old vines, produces extraordinarily rich, deep colored, and profound wines. This, coupled with specific barrel treatment (with minor oak American oak influences) produces one of Rioja's most exciting new wines. Artadi is about purity of extracted fruit with almost Burgundian textures: sheer power, complexity and startling finesse. The results have been astounding! These are some of the most exciting of Rioja's new-wave wines.

Caillez-Lemaire

Cuvée Jadis Extra Brut Premier Cru Champagne Blend 2008

Nose has effervescent limestone water, crusty sourdough bread, excessively zested lemon and lemon creme pie.

Maison Alex Gambal

Saint-Aubin Chardonnay 2018

Thanksgiving 2020; a quiet day with just my wife and the kitties, hopefully 2021 brings family and dear friends back for group enjoyment of this Holiday.

Nose has under-ripe pineapple, ripe pineapple, warm lemon slice, wet flint, light oak/vanilla and lemongrass.

Palate has cooked lemon slice, crushed flint, wet sandstone and pineapple core with a medium finish.

An infant for sure (current release), but made for a solid pairing to a Thanksgiving meal, it worked great with all the flavor diversity on our plates. Oh man, 2018 Burgundy is going to be wonderful.
