Domaine Turner Pageot

Assemblage Millésime Brut Champagne 1996

First data point. Strikes me as fairly old school, a heavy style of bubbly. It’s got lemon curd, apricot and stone fruit, nice layers of fruit, decent acidity, finishes clean with a bit of a sour twang that pleases. Bubbles are perceived on palate more than in glass, fairly dark in color, a nice champagne but not a head turner, not rushing out to buy more. — a year ago

Alexandre Le Brun

Dilection Brut Millésimé Rosé Champagne Blend 2009

Very nice: dense nose with wild strawberry, a touch of watermelon. On the palate, ok acidity..a bit softer than I would like, then strawberry, soft mousse, lemon oil, melon, a touch quick on the finish. Not nearly as good as the 08 imo, which was a head-turner. — 2 years ago

Fourteen Appellations

Meritage Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

One of the best I’ve had. Better than the 1988 Tina Turner concert! 2006 vintage drinks like a cab but way better — a month ago

Descendant Barossa Valley Shiraz Viognier 2016

This was a head turner midway through a 6er of blinds. Immediately clear it was serious stuff but I’ve never had Shiraz like this, so took a stab at Cornas. Deep dark opaque purple. Complex, lively range of blue and black fruit, eucalyptus,sweet salty cured meat, black olive, cigar box, sun scorched red earth. — 2 years ago

Capoverso

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2015

A head turner. Had to ask the Somm to give us the lowdown. 75% Sangiovese, blended with indigenous varietals. Dirty, gritty, yet robust aromatics. Purple flowers, nice mid-palette, licorice, red and black fruit. — 3 years ago

Domaine de Chevalier

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Delectable Wine
9.7

The 2018 Domaine de Chevalier is easily one of the wines of the vintage. A wine of mind-blowing precision and regal elegance, Domaine de Chevalier dazzles from the very first taste. Dried herbs, rose petal, mint, blood orange, pomegranate and bright mineral notes all build in the glass. Richly layered but also translucent, the 2018 is a real head-turner. Don't miss it!
