Comtes von Neipperg Côtes de Castillon Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

2015 vintage. Been meaning to try this wine for a few years and finally did. Great value. Herbal, dark choco, plummy notes in the nose. That plus plenty of medium-bodied structure adds up to pretty decent juice. Tastes like 10 years more max for aging would be about right. — 2 days ago

Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes

Comtes de Neipperg St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Rich right bank Bordeaux. Full bodied. Hit on all cylinders from the beginning until the end. Dark fruit that transitioned from the front of your mouth to your cheeks as the tannins kicked in. Smooth finish. — 20 days ago

Domaine des Comtes Lafon

Meursault-Charmes 1er Cru Chardonnay 1990

Darker gold with an old white wine nose. Notes of warm citrus, creme brulee, some butterscotch. Later these notes mellow as the wine got more air and opened up a bit. Silky in the mouth. A bit past its prime for sure, but still has some sneaky acidity and enjoyment to offer. — a month ago

Maison Lafon

Le Fruit Défendu Rosé Blend

Really love this. Just the right balance between fruit and mineral flavors. Tart, but not overwhelmingly so, slight rose on the finish, maybe? — a month ago

Monthélie Chardonnay 2011

Nose has caramel dipped yellow apple, lemon peel, lemon zest, peach slice, warming butter and classroom chalk dust.

Palate has sugar dusted lemon slice, slightly oxidized yellow apple peel, fresh-fresh lemon zest, light salinity, sauteed peach and old white flowers.

Great acidity, likely opened this much too soon, expect this bottle to be a ⭐ in another 6-9Y (2027-30), albeit delicious tonight.

Decanted 4H+, more time appreciated.

Always look for the less notable Village and vineyard sites from your favorite high level producers, chances are good they're making a great, under-the-radar wines with pricing to match.

How sautéed peach. Your descriptions blow me away.

Taittinger

Comtes de Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2008

One of the best vintages for Comte! The 08 was singing, rich with so much energy showing notes of citrus, marzipan, brioche, mineral & white flower although very young you can approach now. — 13 days ago

Chateau des Quarts (Dominique Lafon & Olivier Merlin)

Clos des Quarts Monopole Pouilly-Fuissé Chardonnay 2012

Pop and pour, notes from 45 min open. Lovely, and my best bottle..also my last '12. On the nose: lemon, soft ginger, a touch of honey, some sour apple. On the palate: excellent acidity and density, mirroring the nose. Paired with baked whole branzino, stuffed with onions and herbs...yum. — 18 days ago
