Freakshow The Strongest Man on Earth Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon

Color of deep purple with lighter shades on the rim. Nice tears. Nose of ample fragrance of currants. minty, vanilla, oaky, sweet note, and some more dark fruits. Taste is mouthful and chewy, quite sweet mixed with some spice, acidity, tart, strawberry, and some more vanilla. Aftertaste shows more strawberry, tangy, and a bit marginal tannin. On par. Like all the Freakshow wine, a bit too sweet for me. — 10 days ago

L'Amateur Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru Chardonnay

A medium lemon color with energetic effervescence. Tiny, fast paced bubbles. Honey and yeast aromas immediately upon opening but it gets so much better from there. Big citrus notes of lemon zest and melon. Chalk, flowers, and moist earth.

What a weird, singular, and gorgeous champagne. Straight out of Trépail with a wine a blanc de blancs that displays purity, focus, and the terroir. Zero dosage and remarkable acidity. An intense champagne on day one but becomes more approachable the next day.

The palate is emotional and deep with a plethora of fruits. Hazelnuts, brioche, and caramel. Green apples and peaches for days. A dazzlingly array of notes here over two days. Ethereal and wonderful.
