Furstentum Alsace Grand Cru Pinots 2020

Vintage 2020 | @delectable this is white | combination of Pinot Gris and Auxerrois that gets 2 to 3 years of barrel ripening. The vintner told us it is interesting to ripen Pinots on wood if you want to make a dry gastronomic wine. This wine tastes very round, indeed some vanilla and very pleasant to taste. — 8 days ago

Jean-Paul Schmitt

Rittersberg Zen Alsace White Blend

Vintage 2018 | Jean Paul Schmitt is a winegrower that makes wines of character in Scherwiller. Biodynamic. All of one plot, the Rittersberg with granite terroir. This cuvée ZEN appeals to me. It is a ‘gemischter satz’ (blend) of five winegrapes. Friendly, flint, good body, citrus and good acidity. Fine effort. — a day ago

Purple Hands

Lone Oak Ranch Pinot Noir 2020

Pinot Noir blend of fruit from eight different Willamette vineyards. Beautiful organic-based nose of mushroom, tobacco, lavender and freshly turned wet soil. Just a bit of dark cherry. The pallet is light with black cherry, cranberry and black raspberry fruit with some notes of cola and spice. Light color and body. Elegant. Excellent QPR for a Willamette Pinot. Thank you for sharing, Kase! — 8 days ago

Tzum 'Moon Hill Farm I' Chardonnay Blend

nat-funk mineral railroad with floral perfume, then capiscum echo, then oddly fleeting cinnamon, then apricot sugar, a kind of fabulously flabby tight-weight high waisted below-the-belt boxer bottle of mixed chardonnays with a little pinot gris-skin blush, perhaps. — 8 days ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Over the weekend we opened the 2018 David Paige Wines Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. From Carlton, Oregon and a blend of grapes from Chehalem Mountains, Ribbon Ridge and Eola-Amity Hills.

On the nose there was strawberry, cranberry, cherry, clove, mushroom, hibiscus, vanilla and earth.

On the palate there is tart cherry, raspberry, cranberry, clove, mushroom, vanilla and earth.

This is a medium bodied wine with medium + acidity and medium fine tannins that moves easily into a long red fruit earthy finish. A very nice expression of Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley. Have a wonderful week ahead and my it be positive and productive. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Cuvée Rubis 1er Cru Brut Champagne Blend

Another rendition of one of my favorite wines, a most sensual and erotic wine. An alluring deep salmon rose color in the glass with nice effervescence of small bubbles. The nose immediately shows as sweet, sweeter than I would expect but that soon dissipates. Strawberries up front with red cherries and a touch of apple. Crushed herbs and mild spice after some time. There’s a floral aspect here that’s outstanding, as well.

So many rosé champagnes are so similar in ambition and execution that it’s nice to find something that’s a marked step above. 90/10 Pinot Noir/Chardonnay and disgorged in October of 2019 with a dosage of 9 g/l. Nervy and thrilling, it’s an exciting champagne that doesn’t skimp on power. Good balance and structure with a vinous nature. Playful and teasing, without a trace of austerity.

Pure sex in the mouth with candied raspberries and more wild strawberries. Blood orange, grapefruit, and passion for days. Peaches, melons, and romance. A little chalk, a little lust. One of my favorites, year in year out.

Coteaux Bourguignons Pinot Noir 2021

Blend of Gamay and Pinot Noir, and it shows. Gamay bringing bright fruit and a wild character, with the Pinot bringing violets, cherry and mushroom. Acid brings it all together. Pretty. — 15 days ago
