Le Petit Brosselin

Domaine Sebastien Dampt

Terroir de Milly Petit Chablis Chardonnay 2019

Nose has white florals, moist ocean sand, green apple peel and lemon zest.

Palate has tart apple, warm lemon, light saline solution, green hay and moist sand/clay pottery.

Medium body, mineral drive is excellent and runs through the complete finish. I would suggest this vineyard site has a good mix of clay soils which appear to soften the palate slightly, quite enjoyable. Decanted 60m.

Paired with grilled steelhead trout, delicious.

Fay Golden Rectangle Napa Valley Red Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot

Prior notes still apply, but this bottle was much more on point than the last 14mo ago. I'd suggest this still has at least 8-10y to go from proper storage!

Nose has old cedar closet, dusty cherry, ripe plum, blackberry, burnt blackberry pie, over-ripe black cherry, volcanic rocks and over-ripe blueberry.

Palate has ripe blackberry, warmed plum, dark chocolate bar, prune, dried blackberry, semi-dried cranberry, cigar box and tanned leather. Tannins are light, but still proof of youthfulness!

Paired alongside medium rare Delmonico cut steaks from our favorite local farm, Kinderhook Farm (Valatie NY). Perfection.

6h decant, more time appreciated. Last bottle. 😢

Added to cellar inventory around April 2006; We obtained this as members of the Wine Club.

CREATED EXCLUSIVELY FOR CLUB 23 members, the Golden Rectangle is a harmonious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot from the FAY vineyard. The name "Golden Rectangle" refers to our winemaking philosophy inspired by the Golden Mean, the principle that contrary elements, balanced in the right proportion, create tense harmony.

In this select bottling, the opposing elements include two different varietals from two different vintages. The wine is a blend of 61.8% FAY Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, and 38.2% FAY Petit Verdot fruit in the proportion of the Golden Mean. Petit Verdot is a Bordeaux blending varietal typically used in very small amounts because of its power and structure. This blend of Petit Verdot might seem unusually high; however, because of the ideal proportion of these different elements, the Petit Verdot adds structure, aromatics, and texture, rather than overpowering the Cabernet Sauvignon. In addition, the blend combines the old and the new-with fruit in roughly equal proportion from the 2002 and 2003 vintages. In this combination, the mellow tones of the older vintage soften the robust character of the younger vintage. The result is an opulent blend, rich with fruit, spices, and exotic perfume.

Domaine Sebastien Dampt

Terroir de Fye Petit Chablis Chardonnay 2019

Nose has dried seashells, lemon peel, white pepper and sliced lemon.

Palate has salted lemon wedge, dehydrated green apple and wet, crushed seashells.

Medium body, mineral drive is excellent and runs through the complete finish. I would suggest this vineyard site has a majority of calcareous soils. Decanted 60m.

Paired with grilled steelhead trout, delicious.

Koenig Vineyards

Reserve K Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

Snake River AVA is hot AF. The wines remind me of Paso. That said, as wth Paso, there are some good wines to be had, especially if you can put them down for a bit to soften. Koenig is the shining example of the AVA and when you want a burley tannic wine to pair with a fatty charred rib eye, this works. Better with age. — 6 months ago

Forsaken Petit Verdot 2013

This is a delicious Petit Verdot from Napa Valley.

Full bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, spices, earth, green vegetables, black tea and peppercorn.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with a tangy finish.

Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime.

Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel and Awesome nose.

This 8 year old is drinking very nicely now with nice complexity.

Tangy and interesting.

14.8% alcohol by volume.

This is well-made for what it tries to be, which is a light skin contact wine which is all the rage of the moment. But I confess I prefer his other more traditional wines. — 4 days ago
