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%.

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> — 8 months ago

Château Peyrabon

Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Prototypical #hautmedoc - Demure fruit, violets, pencil shavings on nose; laid back fruit continues on palate with minerals, accessible tannins and less acidity - this 8 year old wine is peaking now and offered an excellent value on a French bistro wine list. — a year ago

Wonderful. I expected more fruit, more explosiveness. Silky and demure with soft tannins. — 4 months ago

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. — 5 months 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. — 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. — 4 months 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 — 7 months ago

Domaine Laurent & Karen Boussey

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.

Domaine Gramenon

La Meme Ceps Centenaires Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2017

Opened directly into decanter....but stole a first sip - bright cherry and pretty intense menthol out of the gate - felt illegal so waited and hour for second sip, which still had the cherry but menthol turns to soap, just overly intensely perfumed. Waited four hours. Super soft earth and delicate fruit, gorgeous with a pork shoulder. Demure, even coy - you have to keep finding it. — a year ago
