A biodynamic wine with indigenous yeast from a crazy-old wine family in Cotes De Bordeaux. Deep red garnet color. The nose is dry herbs, maybe sage. Bright with medium tannins, and flavors of cranberry, cherry, and leather. — 11 days ago
The 2018 Saint-Bris Exogyra Virgula is one of the most distinctive wines in the range. Intense floral and savory notes give the Exogyra Virgula its deep, pungent signatures. Sage, mint, dried herbs and citrus peel are finely woven together in this crisp, bone-dry Sauvignon Blanc. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, October 2020) — 19 days ago
4 weary workers drank well tonight.
This was a striking experience. Every disparate element of the wine seems to charge along on parallel planes so that each mouthful is a choose-your-own-adventure. It flies through a range of crunchy red, to floral purple, to sultry black fruit on lithe, peppery tannins. Somehow the texture is creamy -- like an au poivre. All sorts of garrigue and charcuterie, fresh and saline, mingle with newly ripe berries, and as the thing takes a preposterously long time to finish you realize how perfectly acid has been holding everything together.
I may not yet have had the privilege of trying other legend status wines with which one could draw comparisons but this was by far the most complex bottle of (still young!) juice I’ve ever tasted. — 25 days ago
