Isère Etraire de la Dhui 2019

Rare grape from Isère (near Savoie) and another @Lyle Fass curio. First sip after 3-hr decant brought to mind young Loire cab franc—bright fruit, tannin, high-toned acidity. Calmed down over a few hours and blossomed in the zalto. Pretty nose, bright cherry; palate has a softness that recalls mountain nebbiolo, earthy, young tannin, great structure, high acid. Terrific match with the barberries & cardamom in an Ottolenghi dish; cut through the chicken fat and really helped make a memorable meal. — 13 days ago

9.1

Gorgeous dark nose. Mullberry, black cherries, black berries, deep spice and earth tones. Super lifted and aromatic. I’m not sure if this is Ardeche or Moselle. I’ll circle back. Seems Ardeche. Very pretty. Even hints of floral. Sawdust. Smoke. Surprisingly complex. Palate is luscious and ample with tangy red fruits and lovely freshness. Good energy and almost a red Riesling quality. This is Ardeche as the granite is coming through now. Lovely sweetness as it opens. Very good for everyday Pinot. — 9 days ago

Les Deux Terroirs White Blend 2019

This lightly tinted greenish wine brings a nose that is heavy on the minerals, with citrus and a slight floral aspect. The aroma is dominated by a beautiful savory sense. On the palate, very mineral-laden, great flinty salinity and a savory finish. The nice acidity makes it a great Wine to pair with seafood. I had mine with a lovely quiche Lorraine at Monsiour Marcel’s in L.A.’s Farmers Market. My wife loved it and immediately wanted to make a cocktail with it, using Creme de Cassis. We may just do that. — 5 days ago
