"Cuvée Corcelette" Morgon Gamay 2017

After a 2 weeks pause for (very mild) health reasons I thought it would be good to pop a bottle I had kept on the side for such occasion.
Cola, cherry, hay and an irony thing one the nose, very inviting. The palate is superlative. Massive acid backbone, superb juicy cherry fruit all along, great width, soft mouthfeel, a little bit of cherry liqueur on the sides too, ample mid palate with a slight drying effect like a subtle brush and a finish with those same cherry juice and cherry liqueur notes. This is so beautiful...

Les Clos Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2005

Five single-vineyard CA Pinots vs 5 Burgs: Gevrey-Chambertin, Vosne-Romanee + three 1er Crus Beaunes. All 2005s. Rob Jensen, owner, and Sue Ryan, lead wine educator at Testarossa joined our group for the tasting. This was Siduri’s Gary’s vineyard Pinot, which I thought rivaled the Testarossa — 11 days ago

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2011

This bottle was a lovely gift from our friend Tim who visited Omaha this past Spring. Our only instructions were to enjoy it together with food; challenge accepted! While I have experienced many wines produced by Foillard, this was my first with his “Cote du Py”. The wine pours a deep ruby color; slightly hazy in the glass. On the nose, at least initially, there are signs of some Brett giving a barnyard characteristic but that sort of blows off (or at least becomes less obvious) with cherries, earth, blackened poblano, underripe plum, and purple Sweet Tarts taking a more central role. On the palate, it’s mostly dark cherry and blackberries showing very little in the way of evolution. Medium+ acid, medium- tannin. The finish was super long. I was really impressed how young this wine was coming across; hardly an indication of anything that would indicate ten years of age. Yet more proof that Beaujolais can cellar quite gracefully. We loved how this paired with grilled rack of lamb and a light salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, garbanzo beans, mozzarella and prosciutto. Grazie Tim! — 12 days ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Hermitage Syrah 1998

Stunning vintage for Chave showing great purity, complexity that is polished & silky with dark cherry, raspberry, smoked meats, licorice, graphite, finishing with a nose of menthol, pepper, tobacco leaf & violet. Great length & balance with the structure that will drink well for many years. — 8 days ago

Clos Saint Jean

Deus Ex Machina Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2008

One of the first vintages. Less concentrated, more acidity (reflects the vintage). Starting to show its secondary aromatics. Beautiful. — 7 days ago

Very good. Licorice, star anise, violet, dark purple fruit. Ripe gamay character - a bit riper with less acid than I prefer - still very transparent. — 6 days ago

Fleurie Gamay 2011

Nose is green a bit.

Palate is still fresh. A bit vegetal / herbal. But fun.

Lou Taissou Saint Joseph Syrah 2018

Brought to Tasting Group. Popped and poured; presented in typical double-blind fashion. In the glass, the wine is deep purple with an opaque core. Medium+ viscosity. The nose is simply sensational. Intense aromas of pepper salami, purple flowers, kalamata olives, tobacco, and Spanish paprika. On the palate, the wine is fairly primary at this stage with gorgeous black and blue fruits and a healthy amount of black pepper. There is a lovely freshness about this wine. High tannin, medium+ acid with a long, satisfying finish. What a winner. Domaine de L’Iserand “Lou Taissou” is 100% organic and biodynamically farmed Syrah from Ozon. 60% whole cluster with half the production aged in 600L demi-muids and the other half aged in Flextank. Only 208 cases of were made. — 13 days ago
