Muir Wood

Unoaked Arroyo Seco Chardonnay 2020

Star bright straw gold. Quince, orange zest, and white pepper on the inviting nose and medium palate which adds a bit of birch(!) on the finish. Extra time on the lees shows itself in texture and body that many California unoaked Chardonnays lack. Not Burgundian by any stretch, but it can go anywhere a lower-end Maconnais can with aplomb. Pork medallions is my current choice. Drink now. — 13 days ago

Les Narvaux Meursault Chardonnay 2017

Выпито в Обнинске 01.07.21. Вино для меня уже слишком минеральное. Как- то не похоже на классическое мерсо. Сегодня моей сестре 58 лет. Она чистая и добрая девочка. Я ее люблю. — 24 days ago

The Storm Cellar

Rose Of St. Vincent 2020

They did it again. This wine just inches out the Alpenglow rose with perfectly balanced acidity, but this time with even more fruit flavors. The St. Vincent has finesse and elegence that leaves no doubt about its quality. — 14 days ago

Ten Grand and 1er Cru Chablis from the 2007 and 2008 vintages, both considered classic years. This tasted like classic Chablis minerality. BH93 — 10 hours ago

More tart cherry showing than anything else. A little bit of cinnamon. I swear you can almost smell the fresh oak barrel. — 5 days ago

This is a red Burgundy despite many efforts to have it changed 😡. Really good. Has more earth and fruit than anything else. Silky smooth. — 11 days ago

Vincent Dancer

Les Perrières Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2013

Dancer’s Perrieres vines are sandwiched in between the great Roulot and Lafon, and his 2013 Perrieres is a stunner. There is so much depth to this wine and it’s about so much more than just reduction. It’s detailed, complex and layered with yellow fruit and stony minerals with superb density and inner mouth tension. It’s powerful and intense but its weight is so lifted and the freshness of the vintage keeps it impeccably well balanced. There is a line of pulsating acidity and exhilarating energy on the palate that leads to an explosively long finale. — 25 days ago
