Jacques Selosse

Substance Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Substance 09 Disg. was superb with a nose to die for. Like old rum barrels. Layer upon layer of complex flavors. Fades a bit over time, but to drink amongst four was perfect. No decant necessary. — a month ago

I really like the flavour of this rum. It can be perfect in any form you want to have with tonic water or with coke or with ginger ale — a month ago

Bosché Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 1987

Aged, giving a bit of rum raisin. Still pleasant acid. Sadly I think it’s past prime in 2021. — 2 months ago

Clos Labarde

St. Émilion Grand Cru 2015

Satisfying #stemiliongrandcru - stewed currant, spiced rum cake, forest floor, leather, nose - forward acidity and soft tannins. Beautiful wine for juicy mushroom burgers. — 22 days ago

Léa Sélection Chorey-Les-Beaune Pinot Noir 2002

2021/5/8 with youshoku chicken cutlets. Initially there’s something like a high-hogo aged Jamaican rum here - toasted vegetal and tropical funk. But I don’t mean that as a criticism or a flaw - it’s an aspect that sometimes appears in aged Burgundy, and the nose here initially feels mostly tertiary. But with air and time, wild berries and raspberries appear - the old Benjamin Button trick. There’s wild mushroom, toasted cinnamon and clove, sandalwood, lapsang souchong and something like tiramisu too. A surprising amount of fruity flesh balanced by lip smacking acidity. Considering the asking price and the sheer age on offer, a ridiculous bargain. — 2 months ago
