Pierre Brisset

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2018

At $30, maybe the best value red burgundy I’ve had. What is it with Brisset? When travel is possible again I’d love to go visit him in Burgundy. However much I bought of this is likely not enough, as it’s delicious now but would be quite curious to see it over the next few years. Tons of crunchy cherries. Great precision and minerality and lifting acid with a bit of earth to drive the complexity. Excellent pairing with some zataar roast chicken thighs. Simply delicious. — a month ago

It’s so good. You get the fruit quality at this level that is in the higher end wines. He makes wine in this crazy castle in Bligny-Les-Beaune. Shares it with 5 other winemakers.

9.4

Been a while since I’ve had the 17. Nose of flint, green apples and pears. Beautiful purity and perfect ripeness. Ethereal minerals. Concentrated, dense and salty. Wow. What salinity this has picked up. Awesome purity. Just so structured and pure. AmazIng focus and linearity. Just an epic epic finish. So lean yet so luscious. A contradiction in the best possible ways. Best bottle of this yet. Texture is like icing on a cake. Amazingly saline and mineral and cot damn that finish doesn’t give up! So long. Just an unreal bottle. Reference point. A benchmark. A wine even Mr. Bean will drink. — 2 months ago

Château Smith Haut Lafitte

Smith Havt Lafitte 2001

Positively glorious...enveloping aromatics, filled with intrigue, interest and guile. I’ve regularly found the ‘01s more elegant and expressive compared to the more concentrated and monolithic 00’s. Obviously this is a gross generalization, but it has played out consistently in my tastings. This bottle is a head-Turner in the best possible way. For what it’s worth, stated ABV is 13%. — 2 months ago

Linne Calodo

Rising Tides Paso Robles Syrah Blend 2015

From Matt at Linne Calodo - who makes some of the most interesting and unusual blends coming out of Paso - the 2015 version of one of his earliest cuvees is 54% grenache, 30% mourvedre, 14% syrah, and 2% tannat. Terrific wine with loads of fruit, great aromatics on the nose, and super soft, well-integrated tannins. This is another one that performs better at temps as close to cellar as possible, as it gets a bit flabby if it warms up too much. Really enjoyable wine. — a month ago

Scharzhofberger Kabinett Riesling 2017

You can tell this is a really well made wine that already tastes good. I was left with the feeling this will be amazing in ten years and I possible served it too cold. Drank with lobster, pea panna cotta and parmesan puree. — a month ago

Weingut Bründlmayer

Steinmassel Erste Lage Riesling 2017

Tightly wound 1er Cru from an outstanding vintage. The main star here is the interplay of lime zest and a unique, Santorini-like volcanic smoke / petrol. On day two, it was possible to peer under those expressive qualities to perhaps an even more impressive layer of tangerines, nectarines, and cantaloupe. Pair with fried lake perch. 12.5% $27 — 2 months ago
