Demure

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Clos du Marquis Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

Quite soft but great length and a sort of slowly creeping charm. Not a fireworks style but rather demure and complementary. Plenty life ahead, might develop much more complexity— this was definitely still first plateau. — 3 months ago

Testamatta Toscana Sangiovese 2016

Wonderful. I expected more fruit, more explosiveness. Silky and demure with soft tannins. — a year ago

Jayson Napa Valley Red Blend 2009

Ok, damn...this shiyit be muthafuckin demure. Extracted blackberry syrup dusted with white pepper and a hint of mole negro and bitters that rolls into a soft velvety finish that’s like the perfect bite of a berry arugula salad — 2 years ago

Nose took a while to get there and then wow. Crunchy berries, floral, high toned, but reserved and demure and holding so much back. Insane inner mouth aromas, sweet fruit and earthy. Gorgeous energy and minerality. Pure and ephemeral. Balance is perfect. So pure. But all in all too young. Wonderful wine. — 2 years ago

Glener Pinot Nero 2018

Fresh off the boat, showing a bit closed and demure right now but will certainly improve with time. I often recommend this wine for Burgundy fans on a weeknight budget and will continue to do so. — a year ago

Pine & Brown

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Densely concentrated in savory flavors of soy, leather and tobacco, the demure fruit leans into red currant, raspberry while structured in grippy, silky tannin. A cellar-worthy wine, it will do well over time, expanding its reach into dark-chocolate and nutmeg underpinnings. — a year ago

Ghost Block

Single Vineyard Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Daaaaammmnnn this is 🔥!!! Gots all the signatures of a big ass Cali cabs, but like I dunno, sophisticated and demure. All those ripe lush fruity juiciness was just so perfectly interwoven with cocoa coffee graphite and lightly crushed herbs all with jusssst the right amount of oakiness <chef’s kiss> — 2 years ago

Château Corton

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2013

👁 This wine was pale gold.

👃On the nose this wine had a medium intensity of youthful aromas. Aromas included primary notes of pear and apple tart, ripe apricot, lemon curd, and wet stone; also secondary notes of cream, butter, and vanilla.

👄 On the palate this wine was dry. It had medium acidity, a medium(+) body, high alcohol, and medium intensity in flavor notes that included primary notes of pear and apple tart, ripe apricot, lemon curd, and wet stone; also secondary notes of cream, butter, and vanilla. The finish was medium(+).

This wine was balanced, delicate, and demure. An elegant Chardonnay grown on the hillsides of the Montagne de Corton in the Grand Cru appellation of Corton-Charlemagne within the Côte de Beaune region of Burgundy. I would love to pair this with lobster tail or scallops and risotto...

Louis Latour, Corton-Charlemagne, Grand Cru, White Burgundy. Vintage 2013. ABV 14%.

Domaine Faiveley (Joseph Faiveley)

Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2006

Domaine Faiveley, Mazis-Chambertin, Grand Cru. 2006 Vintage. Medium Garnet. Umami notes on the nose and palate - wet earth, mushroom, dried herbs - also ripe black cherry, wild strawberry, violet, vanilla, nutmeg. Tannins are very present but also soft. Elegant wine. Demure at first but with time and acquaintance opened up nicely. — a year ago

Les Prévolles Beaune Pinot Noir 2016

Needs an hour decant. All over the place before that. Almost a study In wine evolution.

Nose is a bit slutty. Then it becomes almost demure. Ah fuck corked.

God hates us all.

Palate is nice.
