Ultreia Saint Jacques Mencía 2018

Dark yet fresh, vivid and bursting out of the glass with ripe sour cherry, violets and crushed rocks. A touch of reduction.
On the palate this is so fresh. Mid weight, juicy, crunchy tannins, juicy acidity. Chunky yet not rustic.
This has personality, loads of interesting edges, quite some depth and brilliant drinkability, esp. slightly chilled.
Brilliant value, too!

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

9.6

Deep nose of ripe plum, cassis, blackberry, cedar, dark roasted coffee beans, herbal spices, hint of cigar box and violet. Warm and soft lightly extracted dark fruits lead the initial attack. Dense yet smooth with impeccable balance. Full of energy. Firm polished tannins. The pairing of 14 days dry age Rohan duck was magnificent.

Immensely powerful with old world charm and grace, this 10’ Saint Julian earns a perfect score from WE, and I think it’s deservedly so.

Domaine des Billards (Héritiers Loron)

Clos des Billards Saint-Amour Gamay 2019

American geography ignoramus that I am, little did I know that the Northernmost tip of the Rhone- Cote Rotie- is the kissing cousin of Beaujolais. St. Amour is more midpoint, but has that great granite terroir which makes this long standing Cru Bojo (& under 20$) a perennial fave. It’s that mineral tautness I love. — 3 days ago

Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet (Hervé Souhaut)

Saint Joseph Marsanne Roussanne 2015

White pepper, citrus rind, pineapple, wildflower honey on the nose. Palate concentration is very good with good acid and minerality. Almost great. Still, to my palate this succumbs to the ripeness of the vintage on the finish… a little cloying. — 9 days ago

Guilhem et Jean Hugues Goisot

Exogyra Virgula Saint-Bris Sauvignon Blanc 2019

An old friend, whom I am ecstatic to find again. Basically a Burgundy estate that was exiled from Chablis & is part of Côte d’Auxerre. Concentrated green fruits, lithe, delicate & powerful all at once. The balance is remarkable-I can’t imagine a better QPR. Polaner importer. — 14 days ago

Château Pigoudet

Classic Aix en Provence Rosé Blend

Vintage 2020 | I know I like this wine, but it was placed in a blind tasting next to Burgundy and Rioja. Explosion of apricot, juicy. Next to two serious glasses this seemed a crowdpleaser to me. — 6 days ago

Château Meyney

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

9.0

Black cherry, gravel, and just a hint of green pepper on the nose. Shows the concentration of the vintage with black cherry, cocoa, and earth in the palate. Quite tannic on the finish, which goes on for quite a while. Perhaps a bit simple, but overall a nice wine.

4/22/7/3/4 +50 = 90 pts.
