Brut Réserve Champagne Blend

Popped and poured; no formal notes. A very pretty straw color with a persistent mousse. Lemon meringue, raspberries, almond croissant, and pink flowers. Powerful. The finish is rich and long. Particularly lovely with a little air and some food. These wines from Bérêche…wow. Disgorged 7/2019. — 9 days ago

Clos du Roy Marsannay Pinot Noir 2019

Yes, drinking too young. Reports are that 19 is a great Burg vintage. If this bottle is any indication, buy up. Absolutely delicious and I can’t wait to revisit in 3-5 years. Tart red fruit, great acidity, forest floor, acid and hint of tannins. — 12 days ago

Le Petit Roy Red Rhône Blend 2001

Back for the 20ème année (20th year) release here. Ruby red, very good clarity. Funk and figs in nose. Flavors: cola, funk; raspberry strawberry and cherry on finish. Seed tannins unresolved after 30, 60 minutes but fun and easy to drink while you are waiting. Definitely figs in the aftertaste. I’d stock a few of these away and replenish every year. If you must drink French reds, why not start here? Yummy — 7 days ago

Montée Rouge Beaune Pinot Noir 2016

Intense aromas and flavors of mushroom, tobacco leaf, black tea with just a hint of black cherry fruit. Hints of meat, Forrest Floor and leather. All of the tertiary/savory notes come to the forefront and the fruit stays in the background. Lighter in body. Dark garnet color. — 9 days ago

Campania Remensis Champagne Blend 2017

Med pink, strawberry, cherry, rhubarb aroma notes. Really nice weight on the tongue, and brilliant fruit/acid balance. Long, juicy finish that gains authority as the wine warms. So marvelous with king crab, Amalfi lemon pasta and a three inch brick of impeccably crusted Halibut. What an evening to sit on Chicago’s Riverwalk and watch the peops. Happy Memorial Day to all, esp those serving or having served! — 25 days ago
