En Famille Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2019

This is one overpowering Pinot Noir, even for California. Chewy mouthful of red fruit, with complexity supplemented by minor bitter chocolate. Runs on all eight cylinders. — 2 months ago

Ma Douce Chardonnay 2012

9.5

Outstanding w/ 10 years in bottle. Honeysuckle, lemon, lime, stone fruit, crème, powdery minerals, beautiful acidity, white & yellow flowers, amazing structure, balance and finish for days.

Best Chardonnay since I had the 96 Gaja Chardonnay at the property out of magnum in 2015.

Pierre Morlet

Grande Réserve Brut 1er Cru Rosé Champagne

This is packed with strawberry, cherry, raspberry, and oh so cool minerals. A green minty spring aroma. Crushed granite on the palate. Elegant, textured, great acid, beautiful mousse. — a year ago

Billet Doux Late Harvest Sémillon 2013

9.4

My second set of wines to provide as part of a co-host event.

I picked these up during a visit to Morlet in the fall of ‘21. Sadly, these are the last of my initial stash. 58 semillon/36 SB/6 Muscat.

Poured blind for a group of 20 people at the end of a wine event, I was shocked that not one single person called this Cali. Many Sauternes, Barsac, and a few South African dessert wine guesses. It’s undeniably sporting botrytis flavors, but the richness has a wonderful spine of acidity. Honeyed mango, white peach and chock-full of orange blossom on the nose, there’s added candied spice and honeycomb on the palate. Didn’t pick up any nutty flavors (which I enjoy in Sauternes), but this was also fairly young. Extremely “fresh” for a dessert wine, if that makes sense. Best Cali dessert wine I’ve had, I think.

I think most people do not know that such a wine is made in California. I would have guessed the same.

Ages fantastically,
I’ve had 10-15 year old bottles that were great.

Believe you! They definitely make wines for the purpose of aging. Interesting- maybe it’s bottle variation. This wine was overly nutty. In 3yr I’d say uncomfortably oxidized.

Coup De Coeur Sonoma County Chardonnay 2019

Best California Chardonnay I’ve ever had and should be at this price. Amazing mixed fruit evolving to the back of the pallet.  Subtle balanced oak. — 9 months ago
