Delicious, Gamay/PN based Rosé from Lorraine. Organically grown. — 15 days ago
Seriously delicious and earthy Loire red. — 2 years ago
Apple, shortbread, almond, and lime. Round mouthfeel with a clean finish. — 2 months ago
Wine 11/12 (Pinot Noir / Gamay)
Nose has dried strawberry, cold watermelon, wet raspberries and minor green herbs, quite delicate yet powerful.
Palate has dried strawberry, juicy peach, sandstone with medium-light acidity and medium finish. Really a great wine, so light yet quite finessed.
My first Côtes de Toul, will not be my last!
Once again it is notable that I have made one full trip around the Sun earlier this week. We had our small, social bubble team to the house for celebrating my getting older and somewhat less flexible in advancing age...Whatever will be done when I creast 50? Well, at least it's several years until needing manage that concern.
We enjoyed well-salted Ribeyes (Kinderhook Farm - Valatie, NY, prepared 48h in advance), turning to a beautiful medium-rare after a mere 12m of grill time and smashed, small red potatoes with capers (yeah try it, don't judge me yet). None of the bottles were particularly planned as 'steak wines'; we didn't care as it really was a wine nerd-fest of grapes/regions, from Burgenland, Austria to Brittany, France. Wine and food were on individual plateaux today. This was the vom Boden Spring Experience case, expertly curated by Stephen Bitterolf, and well received by our tasting crew. — 10 months ago
