A rather lovely old gold color with tiny bubbles. The nose features pronounced dried cherries and a plethora of apples. Toasted almonds and smoke with crusty bread. There’s an element of orange peel here that’s really attractive.
100% Pinot Noir from Ambonnay from one of the undisputed masters. It’s a generous champagne with depth and structure for days. Nicely elegant and perfect for food pairings. Moderate acidity and everything is just so well integrated here. The palate follows the nose with more ripe red fruits and oak. Great length on the finish. Outstanding stuff. — 3 months ago
Really excellent pear cider with 10+ pear varietals. Very effervescent and refreshing. @ABaC in Barcelona with a raspberry dessert. — 4 months ago

What an unexpected gem. At first whiff, there’s oyster shells and ripe citrus. Pears and melon with ocean spray. Apricots and streaks of honey. Occasionally these Muscadet wines can be a tad boring or uninteresting so I really appreciate that this one announces itself right out of the gate.
This appears to be light and breezy at first but then displays a richer body. Very saline and a load of minerality, especially for a Melon de Bourgogne. Gravely, in a good way. Lemon and brine in the mouth, along with thyme and more oyster shells. Easily one of my favorites of the varietal. — 3 months ago
