Wow ! Fucktastic out of the gate.

Nose is so evocative of the mosel. Blue slate. Green apple skin.

Palate is crystalline sugar. Bright mineral. Perfect green apple. Wow.

Luscious. Some apricot. Rich but balanced. Fantastic density.

Iconic mosel spatlese.

Bought from fass selections.

Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Firing on all cylinders! 🔥 Red and black fruited with a velvety texture. Cola and kirsch. Honestly still could’ve aged for another 3-5 years. Iconic Willamette Valley vineyard from one of the great producers in Oregon. — 2 years ago

Brauneberger Juffer Auslese Riesling 1994

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Pops Orchestra. Our Pops conductor Keith Lockhart is leading a live-to-picture performance of Star Wars: A New Hope, a showing of the classic 1977 film, with the Orchestra performing Mr. Williams’ iconic score.
For live-to-picture productions, the orchestra performs the entire movie score in real time as the film unspools. (Vocals, dialogue and effects are isolated from the original music track.)
Generally we get to hear Star Wars scores a couple times per season here at Tanglewood, but tonight we get a chance to hear them with the backdrop of the movie (Episode IV) that launched a franchise, to say the least!

I celebrated another full trip around the sun, since my coming into this world, earlier this week. Tonight my wife, some dear friends and me will be enjoying some enticing wines along with our movie night. So notes...maybe, but I'll try!

Jean-Claude Ramonet

Les Ruchottes Chassagne-Montrachet Chardonnay 2016

Continuing to dip into 2016 white burg at the top level and continuing to be pleased. Surely one of the most coveted and iconic Ramonet plots, albeit young, 2016 Ruchottes is very impressive tonight, proving the frost laden growing season is becoming a year of terroir over vintage. At first perhaps eerily opulent, it continues to focus with air and flaunts an explosive bouquet of stone fruit, citrus oils, wet stones, white flowers and toasty oak with Ramonet spearmint that comes in after some aeration. The palate is expansive, dense and concentrated with an elegant texture and just enough citrusy acids to support its imposing richness. If I were to nitpick I’d like more length but this is a great bottle. — 9 days ago

Marie-Thérèse Chappaz

Dôle la Liaudisaz Valais Gamay Pinot Noir 2018

Beautiful dôle. Natural, earthy, elegant and complex. Pinot aromatics and Gamay sweet spices, good acidiy, well it's pure pleasure. Marie-Thérèse grows her fabulous vines up on the hills of Fully in Valais, she is one of the most iconic swiss "vigneronnes". In spite of the difficulty of working such a land, she follows the biodynamic philosophy and does an impressive work to produce world-class wines in a respectul way. This Dôle is very young and could be considered an "entry-level" red and yet it shows already all of its personality ! Paired well with a roast-beef from "race d'Hérens" beef, roast potatoes and coleslaw. — 3 years ago

Leeuwin Estate

Art Series Margaret River Chardonnay 2018

Ming L

Richly textured with predominately ripe fruits and oak notes at this young age, but in a way that somehow conveys a sense of understated elegance. Enough acidity to carry the medium to full body.
My first of this iconic Chard from down under. And it did not disappoint.

Les Chênes de Macquin

St. Émilion 2012

This is #MerlotThursday and it is time for some Merlot.

Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.

Fruity nose with black currants, blackberries, cherries, vanilla, earth, wood, spices, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, tobacco leaf, light vegetables and peppercorn.

Medium plus in finish with grippy tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a young Right Bank Bordeaux. Fruit forward and big, with a grippy mouthfeel.

This second wine from this iconic winery, needs a couple of hours to open up properly.

This 7 year old is very young and unbalanced, but already drinking very nicely, and will be better in 5 to 10 years.

I had it at a blind tasting, called it, but missed the vintage by 2 years. Good enough for me. 😊

I paired it with light appetizers.

A blend of 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels (100% 1 year old barrels).

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.
