Jean-Max Roger

Cuvée Marnes et Caillottes Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

The wine of choice tonight I have opened is the 2019 Jean-Max Roger Cuvée Marnes et Caillottes Sancerre. From the Loire Valley Bué, France.

On the nose there is lime, grapefruit, melon, hawthorn, flint and minerality.

On the palate is lime, gooseberry, grapefruit, lemon, smokey flint and minerality.

This wine is light to medium bodied with a fresh clean mouthfeel, medium + to high acidity with a long citrus mineral finish. I hooe everyone has had a wonderful weekend? With the week ahead lets all stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

Domaine Jean Dauvissat Pere & Fils

Fourchaume Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

Pretty, classic Chablis minerality on the nose which is light and has some so2. Palate is tart and takes on weight with air, becoming fantastic and more concentrated. Perfect bit of sweetness on the finish. Early in its development… Needs years. — 4 days ago

Domaine Jean-Jacques Girard

Les Fichots Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2012

Lyle Fass
9.4

My last bottle and age your Fichots! Please! This is glorious. 19 is close to 12 in spirit I think. What a nose. Ebullient, expressive and pure. Black raspberry and black cherry with a spicey earthy note. Floral and underbrush but clear. Just gorgeous and will only get better with air. Air and Fichots work well together. Ahh, the classic Fichots structure. Stoney, straight and long. Always needs an hour to open at any age but the length, balance and wow that length are there. Incredible fruit amplitude and volume. Sappy and pure. Wonderful finesse has arrived after some air. Just a beautiful wine and one of the best values of red burgundy I’ve ever encountered. It’s great every year but some years like 12/19 are better than other. Also 14. — 22 days ago

La Ferme des Sept Lunes Syrah 2020

Early greedy syrah. Superbe mesmerising nose made of floral fragrances, violette flower forward, touch of pepper. A primeur wine full of charm.

Syrah primeur, gourmande. Superbe nez enivrant sur des fragrances florales violette en avant, touche poivrée. Vin primeur plein de charme.

'Hommage a Yves & Jean-Noel Pelletan' Cognac

Subtle and scotch-like in some respects, but nevertheless giving with strong scents of grape skin, wood spice, and white raisin. A bonkers proposition, not only was this Cognac aged in a handmade single cask by the Pelletans, the brandies that went into it are a blend of vintages ranging from 1925-1965 exclusively making this undoubtedly one of the rarest bottlings you could hope to get your hands on. Bottled at natural cask strength and with zero additives or artificial ingredients. Surprisingly pointed in its attack for something this old, but with the complexity and character you'd expect. — 6 days ago

Jean et Sébastien Dauvissat

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2010

I’ve had this bottle sitting in my cellar pretty much since I got back from Riyadh, nearly 7 years ago. I’m not really sure why I held onto it as long as I did but whatever. It’s open now. In the glass, the wine pours a brilliant, deep golden color. A fully mature wine at this point with a whole host of secondary and tertiary characteristics on the nose: toasted bread, apricot marmalade, feta cheese, nuts, Vanilla Tootsie Roll (the blue wrapper), sour dough, desiccated tropical fruit, warm asphalt, and alfalfa. A truly strange combination but it’s all there, whether you want it to be or not. On the palate, dried apricot, flan, and cashews. Medium acid. The finish is long. At this later stage of its life, the 2010 Jean & Sebastien Dauvissat “Vaillons” is not a wine for everyone as there will no doubt be folks who’s palate will not agree with the oxidative character of the wine. That being said, I found it rather charming. Drink now. — 22 days ago
