Estate Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2014

1 hr. decant & was ready to rock with my Duck 🦆 Dinner 🥘!!! Happy that Gary Pisoni put La Tache cuttings in his dirty underwear in 1983 prior TSA Bullshit & grafted onto vines in his Santa Lucia Highlands vineyard. This “Poor Man’s” La Tache is always Smokin’ great! AG says 95 Points & his review is point on in relationship to the wine. Cheers 🍇🍷👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 — 4 months ago

La Tâche Pinot Noir 1999


1999 DRC La Tache. Date night at Margot. Decanted and served, which was the right play. Lots of dark fruit, meat, and savory notes. “In the jowls” - great mouthfeel. — 7 months ago

Romanée-Conti Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2016

The commune we have all been waiting for - Vosne Romanee. The first of 6 Grand Crus tasted blind. In 2 of the 3 previous tastings the first wine in this group has been the DRC RC and when I sampled the breathtaking quality of this wine I was thinking they have done it again. A couple of experts in the group felt the 2 DRC wines were at #1 and #4 This proved to be correct. My notes - Perfume of violets, pepper and Asian Spices. A perfect palate of both feminine charm and latent power ... unbelievable. The La Tache usually shows as more voluptuous in these tastings but not in 2016. I normally don’t have this much left in my glass after the wine has been identified so this was quite a luxury. Just wonderful. As Clive Coates MW said - the yardstick with which to judge all other Burgundies. It is easy to think with the 1000 year history, and the stone cross that there is something spiritual and other worldly about this wine. The consensus from all 12 tasters was that this was the best of the Vosne Romanee tasting and therefore of the whole 34 Grand Crus tasted. Only 440 dozen produced for the world. — 8 months ago

@Mike R Yes Mike, these group tastings are the way to go rather than forking out at best $8000AUD for a bottle and hoping you can live another 20 years to enjoy at its peak 😀🍷

Cidre de Normandie Ferme de Romilly Brut

I have enjoyed cider on a limited basis but I have never been blown away until now. Funky, earthy, and tart. What I found very enjoyable was the lack of “heaviness “ in the mouth , something I have not experienced with cider. A good example of an iron fist in a velvet glove. I know you might find this crazy but I felt this combined the best attributes of Burgundy and orange wines. Enjoyed with Dijon and rosemary crusted lamb chops. — 6 months ago

Try everything at your local shops, if they deliver, at least. French, Canadian, American but insist on dry hard ciders where possible. And try different producers

And do check my tasting notes on ciders from France, New York, BC, Oregon and Washington state

Domaine Francois Lamarche

La Grande Rue Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2016

The 6th and final of the Vosne Romanee Grand Crus. Tasted blind. Red fruited without the intensity on nose and palate of the others in this final group. In past tastings La Grande Rue has been a standout and good value in relative terms but this year it lacked the depth class and intensity of the others in the group. To summarise the Vosne Romanee GC group the consensus of the group was #1 to the DRC RC, Equal 2nd to La Tache and the Thibault Richebourg, 4th to the Hudelot RSV, 5th to La Romanee ( a tough school when a wine as good as this is placed 5th!) and 6th to La Grande Rue. Congratulations to Prince Wine Store for putting this wonderful tasting on every year and being able to source these increasingly rare bottles. Already looking forward to the next one. — 8 months ago
