Vincent Dauvissat

La Forest Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay

Always a huge bummer when this wine is showing badly. Super shy. No fantastic acidity and long finish. A lil fat and watery. Sad night at Mott 32. — 7 months ago

Decant and pour. On the nose: red plum, sandlewood, bacon fat, floral, touch of leather, dried herbs. Taste: smooth, juicy wine with tart cherry, woodsy, minerals, cocoa, black pepper. Enjoying a New years dinner out tonight. Cheers and happy new year! — a year ago

Château Cheval Blanc

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

Graphite and raisin, fig and marinated porcini, smoky dried cherries, black pepper on grilled beef fat, toasted sesame, dried black and red currants, all within an aura of damson and violet and honeyed rose petal. Palate leaps with damson and dried and fresh bing cherry, dried spiced plum, cedar and dried lavender, black olive, moist tobacco, and perfectly toned tannins which come off as a separate, undefinable taste of fruit skin extraction with stunning depth; tea leaves meet dried blackberry in a redwood stand. Soft date and creamy fig follow to a tart raspberry end.

Château Prieuré-Lichine

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Last tasted in May 2022. At that time, the wine had shed much of the baby fat and gone leaner bodied. Ummm…this bottle added the weight/body back on along with the overt fruit missing for the last year back into the hopper. The most Jekyll/Hyde BDX I’ve ever had the pleasure to taste multiple x’s. Have zero idea what to expect on the next visit but thinking it won’t be boring. 2.20.23 — 9 months ago

Domaine Jamet

Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2012

A wine that I have had more than 2 cases & have enjoyed every btl. This is classic Jamet showing black cherry, red berry, bacon fat, olive, graphite, licorice, mineral & violet. Still a baby that will only get better over the next 20 yrs. — 5 months ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2019

I met up with a buddy who is a huge Napa guy. It’s what he knows and to his credit, he has great knowledge of producers and has good taste. We decided to grab a bite at Buvette and he asked if I would pick out the bottle. He said he trusted my judgment, so I walked over to the Rhone wall and noticed the 2019 Jean-Louis Chave Saint-Joseph. Knowing the style, I figured it would touch some of the things he would be familiar with, particularly right now in its youth.

Popped and poured; no formal notes. The 2019 Saint-Joseph pours a deep purple color that stains the glass. On the nose, the wine is fresh and redolent of ripe black fruits and some blue fruits: blackberries and other dark brambly fruits along with some blueberries. The non-fruits were also there: beautiful purple flowers, black pepper, rocky minerals and some lovely vanilla and baking spices. On the palate, the wine was big, full-bodied and had great structure, nearing that medium+ range across the board. The acid is fantastic and the finish was long and savory. It’s easy to draw comparisons between Chave and Gonon as anymore, they share a similar price point and both are known leaders in the appellation. From my perspective, the Chave S-J comes across a bit more focused on the fruit, floral and spice characteristics while the Gonon S-J highlights the bacon fat and rotundone. Otherwise, both are excellent examples. FWIW, my buddy loved the wine (chalk one up for the Old World!) and it was an excellent pairing with our braised short ribs. Drink now to enjoy its youth or enjoy through 2034+.
