Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé

Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Musigny Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1991

bought on release, given away compared to current pricing, opened tonight. Gorgeous wine from the get go with room to run, super nose of iron, a bit of meat, licorice, dark fruit, all echoed on the palate, dark fruit and plum, hints of smoke, just gorgeous. Silky palate. Wife rarely has more than a glass or so, but tonight kept pace with me the entire bottle, emptied too quickly. 91 reds are a forgotten vintage, far better than considered when released in the shadow of 90. — 5 days ago

This is a great bottle!
Agreed on '90 dominance, can't say I've had any '91's yet, but I'll find some with careful storage. 🤞

@Alan Weinberg I have enjoyed ‘91 burgundies

Taittinger

Comtes de Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 1999

Taken to Selby's in Redwood City. Young and fresh with great energy. Notes of citrus, wet stone and some red fruit. Great silky mousse texture. In a perfect spot although still in a youthful stage. — 9 days ago

Vincent Girardin

Quintessence De Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2004

Light gold color, youthful appearance in the glass. Great CC nose with notes of citrus, ginger, reddish clay, wet stones and tan spice. Fruit still very present, matched against some fine-grained acidity. Awesome mouth feel. I know some of these can go south sooner rather than later, but this was right in the zone - youthful with plenty of energy. Great showing tonight. — 3 days ago

Kirkland Signature

Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2021

Nose has peaches, white florals, orange zest, raspberries and chalk dust.

Palate has dehydrated strawberry, faint red grapefruit, green melon, chalky minerals (dry) with some salinity on the finish.

A sub-$15 (might have been less, didn't write the price on the label as I generally do...) winner from Costco; I'm not the least disappointed.

En Remilly Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

DAY 1
👃Perfumed orange florals, peppery lemon & minerals
👅More pretty & less intense than many PYCMs. Palate is medium bodied. Not totally dry

Remaing wine Slow Decanted in my refrigerator

DAY 14
Change in character vs Day 1. The subtle fruit has been shrouded by intense minerality
👅Flinty, smoky minerality with just enough lemon fruit. Nicely salty. Long bold and distinctly dry finish

Quite different on the 2 occasions. It was more delicate and very nice on Day 1 but I preferred the intensity & minerality that had developed by Day 14💕🥂

9.4

Ravishing nose. Vivid Black cherry fruit. Lovely granite. Bursting blackberry. Leather. So focused and exuberant. Stunning aromas. 9.5 aromas. Palate is gamey, meaty and loaded with black cherry and blackberry but also has oodles of freshness and granitic cut. So sappy and pure. Perfect balance and incredible acidity. So cleansing and fresh. Lovely velvety tannins and super long. Best since the 14. A brilliant wine. Almost a 9.5. The energy here is incomparable. Benchmark bojo. — 6 days ago

Domaine Gavoty

Grand Classique Côtes de Provence Rosé Grenache Cinsault 2021

Fun & fruity.

A bit more ripe fruit and body than expected in a classic Provence rosé, but I like it. Madame Gavoty blends in a few hours saignee rosé with direct press. Raspberry, strawberry, cherry, garrigue, wet limestone on the nose. Red fruits, orange zest, sour peach candy on the palate. Mineral sneaks back in on the finish.

Lanson

Extra Age Brut Rosé Champagne

Aged for at least five years in the Lanson cellars before disgorgement, a blend of Grand Cru wines from the Côte des Blancs, classic Blanc de Blancs, 100% Chardonnay, pale lemon, fine bubble flow and light mousse, aromas of fresh stone fruits, warm biscuits and hints of floral notes. On the palate fresh fruit flavors of white peaches and crisp apple with hints of citrus zest. Long finish ending with rich refreshing yeasty mineral character. Nice! — 9 days ago

Amazing to try this. Not the best DRC by any means, but likely one of the better 1994 reds. — 10 hours ago
