Toasty indeed. First sips a bit unsure but it opened up nicely after 10mins. — 10 months ago


Foudre Ferment Great Western Riesling 2021

Awesome! Is this the best Foudre Ferment Rizza from Best’s to date? I think so. Impeccable balance and tremendous flavour intensity. — 2 years ago

Le Cigare Volant en foudre Red Rhone Blend

After 30 minutes of decanting all of the sharp acidity rounded out & it is like a baby CdP. Great value wine. — a year ago

Coup de Foudre

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2021

2021 vintage. Holy bleep…heavy body and smoky nose. Great concentration and depth throughout. Not just an over-extracted fruit bomb. 4.20.23. — 8 months ago

Les Bouquinistes Napa Valley Chapter Four Red Blend 2018

My last bottle of this deliciously weird Napa blend. Nose has an olivey herbal note to accompany ripe cassis, and in that regard reminds me of some Napa Cabs from the 1970s when that was a (nice) thing. Also some warm gravel notes and a touch of subtle wood. Soft and mouthfilling, it’s got equal part dark fruit and savory notes. Great balance. Long finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Grenache, I believe. — 10 months ago

Le Vin des Amis Syrah 2016

This was a fun one. A friend of mine, a wine guy that predominately drinks new world Cabernet Sauvignon, was visiting my place and wanted to try something from the old world. I figured it might be fun to try two different expressions of Syrah from the Rhône; one from the North (Auguste Clape’s “Le Vin des Amis” with vines located in and around Cornas) and one from the South (Chateau Fortia “Reserve” from Chateauneuf du Pape). Both bottles were from the same vintage and aged (at least partially) in foudre. Popped and poured. “Le Vin des Amis” appears as a deep, glass staining purple color with medium+ viscosity. On the nose, high intensity with purple flowers and a powerful bacon fat/deli case smell. Funky, but not in a barnyard sort of way; more like a reductive sort of way. The funk eventually blew off after 15-20 minutes. There are blue fruits with a generous amount of black pepper. On the palate, blue and red fruits with black pepper, lavender and iron-like minerals. Medium tannin, Medium+ acid. Medium alcohol. Long, lip smacking finish. A very giving wine that punches way high above its weight class considering this is Clape’s “entry level” wine. Clape’s “entry-level” offering — 2 years ago
