Jacques Selosse

Substance Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Disg. ‘19- Smoky and complex with typical solera style aromas and oxidation, but there is also an alluring freshness to this disgorgment. Very much needed a decant, but shows so much character, singularity and an expansive palate with a persistent finish. Love love love. — 14 days ago

Abacela

Grenache Rosé 2019

It’s a great grape for rose. Grenache gets too little attention on its own as it’s typically in a blend. But here this Abacela Rose shines. Cherry. Strawberry. Tart and crisp. Lip smacking. Dry. It’s wonderful chilled on a hot day and equally delicious as it warms to room temperature. The QPR is amazing for the substance of this wine. Ranges $15-20 bottle. And keep some for Fall and Winter too. Rose isn’t just for sunny summers. Goes with a myriad of foods all year long (think turkey at Thanksgiving or ham at Christmas). It goes Especially well with all grilled things. Barbecue season here we come! — a month ago

Domaine des Rutissons

9.4

One of the best I sell that has somewhat of a cult following. It’s one of those wines that seems so familiar but is made from an odd grape in an odd place. But man does it work. Nose is floral and lifted. Gorgeous tiny berry mountain alpine fruit. It’s intense. Deep and grapey initially but it’s got substance. Incredibly clear and vivid minerals. Just arresting and original aromas. Superb concentration and what an awesome velvety texture. Superb depth and freshness. Stunning clarity and purity. Velvety tannins. What a showing. Best bottle of Rutissons I’ve ever had. — 2 months ago

Thierry Allemand

Reynard Cornas Syrah 2015

Deep and dense showing dark fruit, black olive and fresh violets with massive concentration, saturating texture and a searing intensity. Tannins are pretty prevalent right now but this has all the substance and structure in this vintage to be a perfect bottle with sufficient age. After a 3 hour decant is when it really shines. What I love about Allemand is similar to Comte Liger Belair in Burgundy, you can drink them on release in addition to holding to age. Special wines. — 3 hours ago

Penfolds

Grange Bin 95 Shiraz 2004

Nice balance and grip. It seemed a bit more muted but had undeniable weight and substance. Excellent pairing with pepper crusted filet mignon. Cork completely fell apart on me but the wine survived! — 2 months ago

9.0

First impression: the bottle is heavy! Probably the heaviest bottle from a US producer I have gotten a hand on. Good thing that what’s inside the bottle has the substance to back up the bottle weight.

The nose is relatively restrained with perfectly ripen plum, cassis, cedar, olive, cigar box, and touch of forest floor. The palate is more opulent than the nose suggested, with rich ripe black fruit core. Very good texture. Silky tannins.
