Aromas of golden delicious apple, nuts, white flowers and a touch of oak. Lemon lime flavors are offset by mineral, white flowers and a hint of vanilla. Straw gold color. Nice balance. Liked it chilled! Excellent QPR. — a day ago
No notes, a quiet celebration for my wife and me as I have successfully ticked another box in the years-on-planet category today. Feeling older...I think.
Barraud 2006 La Verchère VV Pouilly-Fuissé, I promise I'll get to notes on this 2006 vintage at some point, we have plenty more to go still. Lightly honeyed on nose & palate, in a decent spot. Decanted 90m.
On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our Conductor Anna Rakitina (BSO’s Assistant Conductor) is leading Elena LANGER (Figaro Gets a Divorce, Orchestral Suite), RAVEL (Piano Concerto in G) and ELGAR (Opus 36, Enigma Theme). The soloist for the piano concerto tonight is none other than Jean-Yves Thibaudet, our absolute favorite pianist (or piano-player as Emanuel Ax has been noted to say because he thinks the traditional term sounds funny when spoken), a never-to-be-missed event for us whenever he plays these hallowed grounds. (In 2004 Jean-Yves served as president of the Hospices de Beaune, factoid for any wine nerds who are also classical music nerds.) — a month ago
2021/8-9. A nice, straight-ahead Macon, emphasizing the bright fruit and flowers. — 4 hours ago
Drinking well but going to be better in 5 years. Still a bit acidic — 14 days ago
Spring 2021. 10 years is a great age for the denser Maconnais wines - enough time to develop richness and complexity but not so much as to fade all the fruit. — a month ago
This kept getting better and better. Day 2 was special. Want to buy again and pay more attention — 8 days ago
Yummers! Great way to start the meal. Crowd pleaser for those that are not wild about Chardonnay — a month ago
Woody, thin, floral
Great 👍 — a month ago
Spring / summer 2021. More balanced than the warm 2018, but needs a little time for the elements to come together a bit. — a month ago
