Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart Brut Champagne Blend 2002

2002 vintage. Flighty and ethereal 15 minutes after opening. Leaning towards the leaner side. Delicious and a perfect food wine for Champagne-based matchups. Light-medium body. 8.19.23. — a month ago

Les Vieux Clos Savennières Chenin Blanc 2018

Ron R

Interesting and complicated. A varietal that we rarely approach. Tropical notes on the nose and palate. It displays effervescence on the mid palate, which I find distracting. But the pineapple notes draw you in. A very sweet finale left us thinking this was somewhat of a hybrid between Sauvignon Blanc and champagne. — a month ago

Joly’s wines are spectacular! Make sure you try Clos de la Bergerie and the top wine, Clos de la Coulée de Serrant, as well. The latter uses botrytized grapes and can take significant aging. I think it beats Burgundy for the “best white” title.

Hey Byron, thanks for the insights. 24hrs on, it's calmed down (effervescence) a bit so I'll lift the score an extra point :0)

Hurluberlu Cabernet Franc

Love this! Cherries in a forest. Redwoods and some game, earth but such a great lightness. Funky cab franc goodness in the best way. — a month ago

Réserve Exclusive Brut Champagne Blend

Traditional Champagne blend of Chardonnay (40%), Meunier (40%) and Pinot Noir (20%). Medium gold color. Aromas of pear and apricot. Palate is more dried fruit (green apple and quince) focused with hints of toasted nuts, honey and baking spices. Nice citrusy finish and creamy texture. Rich and elegant. Excellent starter. — a month ago

Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 1999

Bought at retail; label indicates it was bought from a private collection before importing. Was an excellent bottle but showed older than I think a 99 should have so I wonder about how it was stored - maybe a passive cellar that had some temperature variation? Glad we popped this one when we did. — a month ago

Clos de la Coulée de Serrant Savennières Chenin Blanc 2019

Delightful! Had the 2019 in July 2023 the funk noted earlier is fading quickly. Golden, pears and apricots, lanolin and lots of minerality. Great complexity. — 2 months ago
