Colgin

Tychson Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

It’s been a long day…couple of days actually. I’ve been lucky to get some buffalo loin and this beautiful wine from Colgin to pair. Deep dark fruits, dark chocolate and espresso. The winemaker describes the 2017 vintage as having a sense of clarity and purity, something we could all use a little more of these days. — 6 days ago

Transcendent nose. Wow. Light, super clean botrytis, honeycomb, intense minerals, butterscotch, bee pollen, so mineral, just so deep and so fine. Stunning nose. The palate is almost perfect. Stunning elegance. So fine and so nimble. Ridiculous purity. I am almost speechless. This is a breathtaking wine. So fresh and so juicy. Wow. Just wow. — 13 days ago

Stunning nose. Ripe but nimble and elegant. Wow. Tangy red cherries and darker black cherrie. Minerals up the wazoo. Incredibly fragrant. Stunningly purity to the fruit and so vivid. Wow what a palate. This is so elegant, so juicy and so nimble. Amazing purity. Sven has taken the leap. This is so damn impressive. Red Riesling to the max! Such fine tannins that are sweet and ripe. Dazzling purity and freshness. Cuts like a knife. Such perfect balance. Easy 9.5. Reminds me of 2010 or 1999 red burgs. Unreal freshness and just perfect clarity of fruit. Wow. This will be a 9.6 with air. — 13 days ago

Wild stuff but excellent. Nose smells a bit naturally. Lemon oil, but that natural skin contact thing. But very clean. Palate is grippy and concentrated. Sappy and pure. Great balance and purity. It’s an excellent example of what a natural wine should be but rarely is. Super clean and long. Legit structure. Complex and staggering levels of minerality. This can and will age. Long echoing finish. Really stellar. Wish more natty wine tasted like this. Then again Leclapart is a genius. — 3 days ago

Clos Bertrand Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2020

9.4

The four single vineyards are my favorite Beaujolais done in the classic style. If doesn’t get better than these 4. Clos Bertrand is perhaps the most accessible and is such a joy. Stunning nose of spicecake, granite, red and black berry fruit, earth and flowers. So pure and vivid. These wines are so clean. Palate is ripe and tangy with excellent precision and detail. Lean-ish with lovely sweet fruit and purity. Linear. So juicy with such fine grained tannins and such impressive length. This oozes class. Amazing fruit saturation on the finish. So long. Brilliant. — 7 days ago

La Serra Barolo Nebbiolo 1999

Beautiful drinking Barolo, I liked the purity & elegance this showed with dark berry fruit, licorice & savory spice, rose petal & tar. Still youthful that should hold for many years showing good balance & length. — 9 days ago

Gorgeous wine. Nose barely starting to show some secondary notes with a hint of petrol. Lime zest as well. Very sauvage. Body odor but in the best possible way. Feral. Post coitus. Slatey and mineral. But so much more to come as this needs air. So juicy and round but with amazing delineation and purity. Sapid and nimble with apple and apricot on the palate and stunning purity. Really elegant and just so beautiful. Just entering its window but no rush. Awesome acids and so so electric. Brilliant wine. — 16 days ago

Love this wine. So clean. Apple, pear, skoche of wood. It’s a bit cold so the nose is not as expressive. Palate is ripe and juicy with amazingly clearly defined fruit. Very refined Lügle. Elegant and salty with lovely lime zest and framing sweet wood. Long. Needs to open and warm up. 9.3 for now. So round and so fresh. Lovely purity. Such a great wine. — 3 days ago

Kastanienbusch Riesling 2020

Huge and expansive nose with peach flesh, lime zest and lime pith, gorgeous clear minerals and ocean breeze. Saline as well. Melon and cantaloupe as well. Gorgeous clarity of aroma as well. Palate is unreal. So compact and clean. Superb presence, purity and balance. Really accessible for a young Kastanienbusch. Juicy and fresh with such a wonderful acid and mineral balance. Amazingly pure with gorgeous citrus and peach fruit. Serene and complete with a hidden structure that suggests medium term aging. Finishes mineral and very juicy. Lingers. — 8 days ago
