Terres Macônnaises Mâcon-Villages Pinot Noir 2017

Magnificent junction between Burgundy and Beaujolais, with this light red, floral, red fruits, gamay (?) that pinote splendidly. Bright acidity, finely persistent tannins; perfectly the type of wine that my palate loves.

'Special Club' Les Fortes de Terres Brut 2015

Well they’ve done it again. Who is they? Why Cédric Moussé and the Club Trésors de Champagne of course. Another superstar bottle from them.

A muted pale lemon color with an effusive stream of tiny bubbles. Aromas of honeyed almonds, peaches, and crushed herbs. Fresh cherries and apricots sparkle here. Toasty brioche bread and chalky minerality show after some time with green apples being quite dominant after receiving some air.

The Master of Meunier and here it shows. 100% Pinot Meunier from the village of Cuisles located in the Vallee de la Marne. This Special Club offering is from one plot of land, giving it its name, Les Fortes Terres. Disgorged on 10/21/19 with a dosage of 1 g/l, this is refreshingly stark with beautifully racy acidity.

Full bodied and bold on palate, the complexity and purity of the Meunier shines through. Butterscotch and apples start the party off with more cherries and citrus playing along. A nice long, dry finish. Vibrant and captivating. Moussé and Special Club champagnes never disappoint.

Cuvée l'Anciene Beaujolais Gamay 2018

Beautiful Beaujolais that transcends the appellation. With 3 years it’s starting to behave like a Pinot Noir. Blind of all, we’d certainly be wrong. A wine that needs at least one hour of aeration to give time to the beautiful material to deploy. Fine, tight and persistent tannins. Serve at 12-13 degrees.

Superbe Beaujolais qui transcende l’appellation. Avec 3 ans ça commence à se comporter comme un pinot noir, d’ailleurs à l’aveugle on s’y tromperait certainement. Un vin qui a besoin d’une heure d’aération au moins pour laisser le temps à la belle matière de se déployer. Tanins fin, serrés et persistants. Servir à 12-13 degrés.

Domaine Arnaud Lambert

Saint Cyren Bourg Terres Rouges Saumur-Champigny 2019

Vinifié en cuves de béton, ce vin fait chanter le terroir ligérien. C’est bon, franc et gourmand. Le vigneron conseille de l’accompagner d’une souris d’agneau aux lentilles et poivrons confits ou d’une tartine de jambon cru à la moutarde de moût de raisin ou encore d’un plateau de fromages. La preuve que ce genre de vin est si polyvalent. Et si facile à boire. BIO — 17 days ago

Les Quatre Terres Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2019

2019 vintage. A rather curious artificial grapey nose reminiscent of those fruit roll-ups from days of yore (70’s-early 80’s). Medium bodied. The merest hint of leather. Mostly ripe and fleshy plum and cherry tho — a month ago
