This burgundy started off tart and transformed with air. It was darker and fuller bodied than I expected. It almost had some syrah notes — furry purple flavors. $99, 93 pts RP. — 2 months ago
27.10.2023 Sancerre Les Baronnes, the second wine tasted with my colleagues and the director (who is drinking). Emphasized by Sauvignon Blanc's history and the description of Sancerre as a place, it was surprisingly appreciated. The 2022 vintage is quite light in terms of texture, but perfectly represents the variety. — a month ago
Very dense in colour - an impenetrable dark Ruby red. Aromatics of dried red fruits, earth, a little charcuterie and a touch of tar. Love the CdP perfume. A trace of sootiness. This is the 2nd Cuvée of the enigmatic Henri Bonneau, who has now passed on. His top wine, Celestins, is a WOW Wine. A medium plus weight palate - both sweet and savoury and also rich. The flavours of good CdP suit my palate perfectly - particularly wines like this from Bonneau, Rayas or Beaucastel Jacques Perrin. — 2 months ago
Beautiful cuvée with age. Bottle bought 10 years ago and likely disgorged around 2010 or so.
Black cherries, liqueur tangerines, dried stone fruits, blackberries, mix of black raspberries/raspberries, rainier cherries, delicate but razor sharp chalkiness, limestone, sea spray, sea fossils, bread dough, baguette crust, soft wine spice, rainbow, floral bouquet, shape acidity, good tension, excellent structure & balance. The finish is elegant with power that lasts minutes. Excellent with Duck Confit, goat cheese with herbs.
Happy Global Champagne Day. — a month ago
