Chaillot Cornas Syrah 2010

Sooo seems 2010 Northern Rhône is ready! After a stunning 2010 Jamet in recent weeks I was inspired to try ‘10 Allemand. A multi-hour decant has it simply rocking, wafting distinctive, captivating Allemand aromatics of deep dark fruit, olive tapenade, charcuterie, violets and a liquid rock minerality. It’s at the point where fresh primary fruit meets the cusp of secondary, tertiary character. The palate is silky, vibrant and mineral with its structured tannins beginning to soften. I wonder how 2010 Reynard would compare. But Chaillot, with air, is most certainly ready, but of course only entering its prime drinking window. Love these wines! — 11 days ago

La Pièce sous la Bois Blagny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2019

Popped and poured; enjoyed over a 90 minute period. The 2019 “La Pièce sous le Bois” pours a glossy ruby color with a transparent core; medium viscosity with no staining of the tears. On the nose, well…the nose is gorgeous, if not downright sexy. Freshly picked, perfectly ripened strawberries, porchini, forest floor and gentle warm spices. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium tannins and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is long and voluptuous. This is very well-made. The fruit is such a star it’s almost as if this could have been from Santa Cruz Mountains. Drinking well now and has the ability to be enjoyed through 2029. — 2 months ago

Like Chassagne, the reds from Meursault are a rare treat stateside.

Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2021

2021 vintage. Hoppin and boppin for the price. Medium-bodied. Some earth and candy in the nose. Both in the flavor profile with chunky, mostly-ripe dark plum tagging along to bully and taunt your palate. 1.24.24. — a month ago

L'Insolite Saumur Chenin Blanc 2020

Um… Some might say this is subtle, but I’d say it’s precise. Clean, honey blossom, white tea, peach, Granny Smith apple and amazing acid. Wow. — 2 months ago
