Morgon Gamay 2018

It’s always surprisingly multifaceted. This time there’s a menthol quality broadening the usually joyous bojo raspberry/cranberry/tomato. And so persistent. — 2 days ago

@Jae Cho 🙌🏻 Got my ‘18 Lapierre in “my cellar” though with endorsements like these I’m not sure how much longer I can hold off...

@Adriana Fabbro @Josh Morgenthau it’s one of those wines you hope to track evolution with age, but never get there. I have a case of ‘17 (Theo’s birth year) I’m hoping will be his first intro to wine. But I’m certain he’s gonna be taking a sip irresponsibly young on my part.

Domaine Lorenzon

Carline Clos des Champs Martin Mercurey Pinot Noir

Côte Challonnaise, the appendix of Burgundys esteemed golden slope, a necessary and much needed resort if you wish to drink decent and representative Burgundy’s without spending a fortune these days. The 2014 Bruno Lorenzo Cuvée is very true to its provenance, where the primary red fruit has just slowly started to retreat to give room for an earthy canvas of damp soil, dried leaves and truffle that we so much love with the true Burgundies. Six years after harvest it still has a long and happy life ahead, eventhough it drinks beutifully in its pre-mature stage as is today. more harmonazied than last encounter in December 2019 I would say.
Successfully paired with pan seared Salmon with red wine jus, and thinly sliced glazed beetroots.

Kröver Letterlay Riesling Spätlese** Trocken 2017

Nose is pink grapefruit and minerals. As this opens it is ethereal. Wow. Unique elegant perfume.

Liquid grapefruit soda with rocky minerals

Some Campari on the finish. Powdered Rocks made of petrified grapefruit.

Truly perfect. I need to just buy a case of every muellen wine. I always drink them all down.

Bought from fass selections

Perfect elegant tapas wine. Balanced acidity and tannins, with fresh cherries even in the 2009 vintage. Plenty of olive and fresh green leafy herbs. Christmas spice herb-infused pomegranate. — 16 days ago

Haut-Coustias Cairanne White Rhone Blend 2012

Creamy and viscous, ripe stone fruit, and a long floral finish... Pairs well with immersive reading in a garden bursting with mums and fall blooms. — 10 days ago

Gorgeous nose. Creamy, citrus, green tea, green tropical fruit, unripe mango, lime zest. So complex. Stunning. Ethereal. Texture. Juicy, elegance and refinement. Not really formal notes. — 12 days ago

Les Longues Terres Mâcon-Loche Chardonnay

A favorite producer from Macon. This tasted like it saw a little oak. Weight, acid and tart apple. Excellent value. — 11 days ago
