Laughing Pig Pinot Noir Rosé 2019

The 2019 Big Table Farm ‘Laughing Pig’ Rose is another thrilling Rose bottling from this famed Oregon estate. On the nose this has seriously good range from wild mushroom tones and peat moss that are woven together with guava and pomegranate seed aromatics that all sing in unison in the glass. The palate is silky smooth, showing a pillowy texture and wonderful, gratifying length. Shades of cantaloupe and green apple combine with ripe Yakima cherry, and cran-pomegranate flavors. The earthy undertones round out this extraordinary Rose wine that will have a long life ahead of it, picking up tertiary tones as it ages. Having recently tried their 2017 Rose, I can state firsthand that their Rose ages well. Drink 2020-2027- 93 — a month ago

This is the wine I have been waiting for from Jenny and François. A beautiful natural wine that doesn’t smell like a pig pen. I mean it still smells “natural“ but I also get a wiff of cherry.  it’s a beautiful opaque ruby color. Then it’s tart and light on the palate. Practically sparkles on the tongue. It’s a fresh garden of mild herbs.. Tarragon and thyme. Drinking it by itself right now but I think it would go great with food. But what? something lemony? Or lamb maybe? Greek food. Yeah lamb kabobs. . Update: went great with simple salad of field greens, hard boiled egg, olive oil and lemon dressing. 😃 — 4 months ago

Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2005

Nose has dried grape vines, (old) neutral oak barrel, dried black cherry, dried garden soil, (cooled) grilled tomato, graphite mechanical pencil refills, old coffee grounds and very dry compost/soil.

Palate has dried cherries resurrected in bacon fat, several day old sliced fresh cherries, blend of moist/dry soil with medium tannins. Cork pulled for a slow ox. for ~6h, then decanted ~1h. Picking up some since decanting, but still not moving the needle much. Likely great 5+ years ago, acceptable this evening.

Paired to a local pig, grilled pork chops from our favorite just over the border farmer (Highland Farm, Old Chatham, NY). Courtney only raises about six pigs every year, I'm overjoyed when we land some for our freezer, delicious factor 2x over just about anything else in the region.
(Pork was 93 points, if I had been more observant on internal temps would have been 95 points, still grilled to a wonderful medium.)

@Daniel Maquin I'm just generally perplexed by these bottles, seems like every third one is a definite winner. I keep buying them in hopes I strike a good run at some point.

@Daniel Maquin @Severn Goodwin I would think based on vintage the ‘05 is the one you would wait on and ‘ 09 the one you would feel less hesitant to open given the flamboyance of the vintage..
