Jacques Selosse

Initial Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Initial is the most produced in quantity and can be referred to as the “entry level” bottling for Selosse but really, it is anything but, and should not be overlooked. Particularly so with some bottle age. 2018 disgorgment is in a great spot and wafts from the glass with distinctive Selossien aromas of caramelized stone fruit, roasted nuts, honeycomb, gun smoke and floral undertones. The palate is rich, powerful and deep with racy acids and a chalky mineral core. It has both freshness and oxidative complexity yielding a complete, balanced and utterly seamless Champagne. Selosse perfection for me is 5-6 years post disgorgement and this is entering that window in great fashion. Always a treat. — 9 hours ago

Domaine Jean-Jacques Girard

Les Rouvrettes 1er Cru Savigny-lès-Beaune Pinot Noir

Nose is cherry lipstick. Elegant earth.

Palate is perfect cherry. Some mere hint of bitterness. So fresh. As it opens cherry licorice. Snap this is good.

Man this is fucking well made. 9.7 on that scale. Balance. Finesse. So great. You can serve this to a billionaire. If they get burgundy they will love it.

Jacques Lassaigne

La Colline Inspirée Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

This is the case when I am not sure if the wine is too complex or just flabby. Buttered croissant with vanilla, chalk, apples, oxidative notes, and pickles. The acidity is as sharp as a well-cared knife (e.g. not mine). Which is nice, but it lacks volume. The flavour is full of pickled lemons. Good, but there are definitely better things in this price range. — 19 days ago

Champagne Marie Brut Nature Blanc De Blancs

What a treat! Pale straw color, loads of Granny Smith apple, brioche and bread. No disgorge on this wine- so light bubbles dissipate. Light and flavorful. — 12 days ago

Bass Phillip

Since 1979 Pinot Noir 2020

Delectable: This is the new entry level Cuvée from Bass Phillip called “Since 1979 Pinot” not offered in your choices. This is the first vintage with Burgundian winemaker, Jacques Fourrier in charge. The first thing I noticed was how fresh and bursting with red fruits this was. Like raspberry, strawberry and cranberry leaping from the glass. No detectable oak influence - all about the fruit. Very approachable immediately - soft silky and delicious. While the other 3 Pinot Cuvées have increased in price this entry level has reduced to under $50 allowing more wine lovers to be introduced to the best producer of Pinot Noir in Australia IMO. Probably clever marketing. — 12 days ago
