Grains de Celles Rosé

Just take a look at this color. So striking. So sexy. Nice perlage and cream. The nose is so crisp and fresh. Pears and lively red cherries alongside mangoes. Freshly baked bread aromas are very nice here, as well are the grapefruit and strawberry.

Yet another young hotshot champagne maker, Aurelien Gerbais from the Aube. A friend and neighbor of Cédric Bouchard and that’s all you need to know. 50/25/25 PN/CH/Pinot Blanc with an extra brut dosage of 3 g/l. The low dosage avoids the trap of being austere, but rather it’s an inviting and gracious Rosé. The addition of 10% Coteaux Champenois Pinot Noir gives it that beautifully sexy color and viscosity.

Dry with breathtaking acidity, the terroir really speaks here. The palate follows the nose with more summer berries and light yeast. So lovely, so sleek. Good sex in a bottle. If you see these, get them.

Mambourg Alsace Grand Cru Gewürztraminer 2015

Pale yellow with nose of stone fruit and honey. Smooth on the way down with lychee honey on the palate. Not as intense as the zind humbrecht from the night before. Paired well with scallops and Dover sole. Another good Alsace product. — 12 days ago

Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Long day. Needed greatness and I got it. Hugely expansive and mineral nose with unreal complexity. Beautiful dash of oak complexity. Sweetest most delicate wood. Airy, ethereal minerals. Palate is super elegant, complex and so delicate with wonderful purity and lift. What a finish. So elegant. Beautiful green apple and sweet lime. Loads of rocks on the finish. Crunchy. What a finish. Just so long. This is stunning and sadly my last bottle. Terrific grip and structure but that super finessed finish is epic. — 15 days ago
