Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2009

From magnum. Fruit a little tired, but still pretty. Dried flowers, mushroom, licorice, subtle raspberry, orange rind, hint of tobacco, sour cherry, soft tannins and nice acid. Opened up a bit more by day two. — 11 days ago

Hermitage Blanc Marsanne Roussanne 1998

Oh it was lights out. Perfect condition. 98 Blanc is a special bottle. Showed exactly how you want a mature white Rhône to be. Layered complexity and terrific depth and richness showing marzipan, dried flowers, acacia honey and fall spices. Longggg finish. — 4 days ago

Domaine Louis Cheze

Cuvée Pagus Luminis Condrieu Viognier 2009

I’m not very experienced with Condrieu, but knowing what younger stuff offers, this feels past its prime. There’s a sherbet nose and a very full butterscotch nose. That’s about it. — 8 days ago

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The 2015 of this wine was a favorite as I could find in locally! Picked up this 2016 after work today to see how it compares. This wine has loads of black fruit, licorice, clove, vanilla medium bodied; and at this point soft tannins. A very nice Cabernet; just missing the "wow" factor of previous vintage.
Happy Labor Day weekend to all! 🌝
Improving with a little chill and reaching that one hour decant marker!

Cristal Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blend 2008

Superb! Smashing bottle of Cristal. Rich with incredible tension and purity, embodies class and elegance. Leads with a gorgeous mixture of fruit and autolytic notes; fresh baked brioche, tangerine marmalade, lemon and orange curd, nougat, spun sugar, toasted hazelnuts, red currants, spring honey, fine layer of fragrant exotic fruit pineapple or quince. Beneath the complexity really gains with the chalky tones really driving the nose and plate. Crushed and damp chalk, struck stones, the slightest edge of sweet herbs and smoke. The subtle spice and floral elements add dimension. Structurally I fine it hard to describe because the acidity has so much momentum but there is sufficient impact and depth to suggest that it is a rich wine. Overall it is supremely elegant and still holding onto its coiled and youthful state. Great potential but the pedigree is there to admire now. — 16 days ago

J.L. Chave Sélection Farconnet Hermitage Syrah 2013

The thing about Monsieur Chave’s wines is the paradox of density, concentration, and same time finesse and elegance. This is a great example. Dark berries, flowers and a fresh tone that makes you want more each sip. Soo good now, but will get better over time. Please decant if you drink before 2025. Enthusiastically recommended. — 8 days ago

Domaine Latour Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2012

Classic Pinot nose. A bit short on the finish and not quite perfectly balanced. Opened and breathing well for 90 minutes ...left me wanting the classic long burg finish — 8 days ago

Les Impenitents Javernières Morgon Gamay 2018

The colour is deep for a Bojo. Nice Aromas of red fruits, some cherries in particular, floral hints. Nice acidity, on the medium plus bodied palate that shows some power with very generous fruit and a lengthy delicious finish. Not a typical light Gamay, much better. 89-90

Couleur foncée pour un Bojo. Nez de fruits rouges, griottes entre autres, floral et très agréable. Belle tension et une certaine puissance en bouche, fruit mur et généreux avec une finale savoureuse. Ne fait pas Gamay du tout, très bien. 89-90
