Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay

Made about as naturally as possible, this is a beautiful experience in a glass. A medium of tiny bubbles in light straw. Delicate and ethereal. Chalk and lemon zest initially on the bouquet. A little pear mingles with white flowers and the customary apple aromas.

100% Chardonnay from Chavot and Epernay. 2015 base disgorged 3/18, with half of the grapes from older vintages. Racy acidity and wonderful tension. Zero dosage and exquisitely dry. Great balance and structure with more power than you’re expecting. Seriously sensual.

On the palate you’ll find grapefruit and chamomile initially with lemon rind and apricots coming in later. Pears, almonds, and just the hint of spice compliment. A long bone dry finish featuring that yeast we all know and love. Easily one of my favorite non vintage Blanc de Blancs.

La Tradition Extra Brut Champagne Blend

Breakfast of champions (throwback to Saturday morning). All Granny Smith apple and mineral. Vibrant. pristine. Can’t recall whether the champagne was that good (though I am partial to Laherte Freres) or whether it was just the taste of sweet victory and relief. — 22 days ago

Le Clos Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2009

This crozes is really hitting its stride. Translucent garnet in the glass. Hay, red fruits and iron on the nose. Not explosive but nicely concentrated. Tastes great with elegant tannins and a long finish. Good things come to those who wait! — 18 days ago

@Shay A Love his Brut Nature BDB, cool label too! Also enjoyed his 2009 Millesime Pinot Meunier offering though the name escapes me. Was super unique!

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

[Tasted on November 13, 2020 at Home]

Raspberry and roses on the nose. Dark cherry, black raspberry and pomegranate fruit, with spice, tobacco and graphite. Rich and well balanced, with an effervescent note and well integrated tannins. Beautiful wine.
