Brut Réserve Champagne

My first experience with this producer. 90% Pinot Noir and the balance Chardonnay. Popped and poured; consumed under an hour. On the nose, mostly fresh lemons and brioche. High intensity. On the palate, golden raspberries and lemon with chalky minerals and lightly toasted brioche. The acid is high…but there’s decent balance here. It’s not a particularly complex Champagne but it delivers very well as an aperitif. No disgorgement information on the label. — 7 days ago

wish I had found this producer years ago. Stellar white burgundy. Just killer. Layers of flavor drinking above its station. — a day ago

Les Granges Chinon Cabernet Franc 2019

Mushrooms, red hots, and cherry chapstick might not sound like a great combination… but I liked it! (Just like a Katy Perry song). — a month ago

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2007

Ten Grand and 1er Cru Chablis from the 2007 and 2008 vintages, both considered classic years. Very reductive/matchstick. Those who like that style rated it much higher than I did. So did Allen Meadows - BH92 — 6 hours ago

Les Domaine Chinon Chenin Blanc 2018

Quite different that I remembered for this wine - less intense acidity, slightly more tropical almost. Still a nice wine. — 7 days ago

@Pooneet K agree on the tropical notes. Northern Europe roasted in 2018 and had a massive drought…I remember london - usually lush and green - being brown. Cool climate Loire it was not…
