La Pousse d'Or

Clos Tavannes Santenay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2002


Just wonderful. 6/7 first wine home from Parks trip. 20 years in and it’s in my perfect drinking window where fruits faded enough for tertiary notes to come fourth but still very present. Better get through these vintages in the stash. Pleasure, and depth. — 18 days ago

Clos d'Audignac Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1999

Better and better. I’m probably overscoring given the unusual flavor profile for a super ripe Santenay but damn… — 21 days ago

Foreau - Domaine du Clos Naudin

Goutte D'Or Moelleux Vouvray Chenin Blanc 1990

Couleur presque brune, un nez incroyable, du fruit confit, une texture sirupeuse un peu, il y a encore de l’acidité pour aider à balancer un peu cette richesse extravagante, la longueur est interminable. Belle expérience d’en boire un verre ou deux. 93-94

Almost brown in colour, the nose is amazingly complex, the texture is almost like syrup, there is still some acidity to balance that richness that is almost too much, and the sugar is wow, but it is still delicious and the length never stops, great experience to drink this wine that was made in only 4 vintages.

Château Moulin de Launay

Entre-Deux-Mers Les Ailes d'Or 2019

This white Bordeaux wine has a subdued nose, but traces of stone fruit and citrus do come through the mineral curtain. The palate is also laced with minerals and citrus, with a nice touch of salinity to add to the waterside connotation of the region’s name. The acidity is fresh and zippy enough for a salad, some vegetables or a seafood dish. — a month ago

Bourgogne Côte d'Or Pinot Noir 2020

Lyle Fass

Another brilliant Bourgogne Cote d’Or from this rising young Burgundy young gun. Bright lifted nose of mid season cherries with some dark red cherries thrown in the mix and a lipstick like intensity. Floral. Like fresh dark roses. Lovely stoniness In the background. So pure and clean. Really just a remarkable nose. Luscious, deep and layered fruit. Palate is remarkable. Juicy, luscious, succulent and deep with huge red cherries, some darker red cherries and superb balance and incredible purity. This is better than the 19. Awesome awesome wine. Just so good. What one wants. That mouthfeel is a knockout. Huge mid palate and lovey treacly texture. So much mid palate amplitude. Stunning. As this airs the nose gets soil tones and you get even more flowers. This is a remarkable bottle of wine. Potting soil. But fresh and wet. So complex. — 12 days ago

Nez et bouche avec du fruit blanc et jaune un peu, superbe vin, belle acidité, un peu salin, équilibré, en finesse, belle finale persistante et délicieuse. 92-93

Blind tasting lunch 2009 theme. Gorgeous nose and palate, white fruit mostly and some yellow fruit, acidity is still there, saline even, nice finesse and a persistant and delicious finish.
