Nestarec Hakuna Matata White Blend

just so fuckin tasty. tastes like apples and honey with a little bit of a kick — 9 days ago

Le Peintre Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2015

Nose is musty. May be corked. God hates us all. Some yummy violet peeking out? As this opens more licorice peeks out.

As this opens the aromatics strengthen and the must recedes. Maybe I was wrong. “DAmnit Jim I’m a wine professional not a biochemist!”

Palate has great juicy delicious cherry fruit. Some licorice. Very grippy on the palate. Staining. Rich. More delicious than complex. A big bopper. Interested to taste less giant vintages. Like a more elegant st Joseph this year.

Almost chewy (the adjective not the star wars character).

Whatevs. Having it with steak and duck fat Cooked potatoes. So all good.

Perfectly fine to drink now.

Leesy, crisp, & absolutely enticing— especially for a Jura geek. Slight viscosity, golden yellow hue. Had at friends party. Jenny & Francois states this is a Gruner But what do I know? Post script: this a white wine, not a red blend @Delectable Wine — 2 years ago

I love a good, zippy, Sauvignon Blanc. Lovely lemony and pear flavors. — a month ago

Le Village Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Wow. This is about as spectacularly delicious a burgundy as I’ve had.

Nose is the best pure cherry. Cherry lipstick a bit. Flawless. ... an hou in lovely florals.

Palate is perfect. Ripe cherry but bursting with firm cherry brightness. Wow. Hint of cherry licorice. Spice.

So good I could drink a case. I’d die. But it would almost be worth it.

At 40 minutes getting some depth. You will be tempted to guzzle this in the first 20 minutes. It’s that good. But that is the temptation of SATAN and you should resist it. Wait for an hour at least.

Finish has some cranberry.

This is crazy in that it’s so good young but the decanting improvement suggests this could be better than delicious and very very good as it ages.

(Purple Flower) Beaujolais Villages Gamay 2018

This is the wine I have been waiting for from Jenny and François. A beautiful natural wine that doesn’t smell like a pig pen. I mean it still smells “natural“ but I also get a wiff of cherry.  it’s a beautiful opaque ruby color. Then it’s tart and light on the palate. Practically sparkles on the tongue. It’s a fresh garden of mild herbs.. Tarragon and thyme. Drinking it by itself right now but I think it would go great with food. But what? something lemony? Or lamb maybe? Greek food. Yeah lamb kabobs. . Update: went great with simple salad of field greens, hard boiled egg, olive oil and lemon dressing. 😃 — 5 months ago
