Whoa! Why did no one tell me about this one? The side project of Mathieu Deiss of the family behind Domaine Marcel Deiss. Beautiful pure copper color with pretty green flecks. One of the prettiest noses I’ve had in quite some time. Delicious honey and orange peel up front. The floral notes are ridiculously fun and exciting. Plenty of herbs and mango, as well.
All Pinot, all day here. 50% Pinot Blanc and 25% each of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. This is so unfamiliar to me but so welcoming and engrossing at the same time. Biodynamic Orange wine that really blows you away from the first sip. Distinctively Alsatian, there’s more than enough to love here. Fresh, lively acid with a kick of spice. The palate is expansive and round with a really nice amalgamation of pretty, rustic fruits. Medium long finish that honestly makes you want just one more glass. Don’t like Orange wine? Don’t like Biodynamic wine? Try this and correct yourself. — 3 days ago
Yowza this is in a great place. Nose is tree bark, bruised lemons, wild mint and herbs. Awesome. It smells a little fat as this is 15 but the Chablis quality is there. Palate is rich, integrated and super pure. Excellent mineral freshness and purity. Acid is adequate but texture is to die for. Luscious and rich. But this is fresh, but not fresh in a typical Chablis way. Delicious. Awesome concentration and explosiveness. — a month ago

Nice round chard nose. Not enough chablis steeliness, or mineral. Very quaffable, almost sancerre more than chablis. I want more mineral!!!!! — 9 days ago

Clean, precise Vin Jaune (100% Savagnin wine, aged under a veil of flor for 6 years and 3 months), from a plot in the village of Menétru-Le-Vignoble, on clay soils. Farmed biodynamically, like all other plots. Pale yellow. Complex nose, reminiscent of a Fino, with aromas of yeast and some subtle spicy notes. Elegant, saline, easy to drink — a month ago
