A By Acacia California Pinot Noir 2018

This is such a light & smooth Pinot noir. I was blown away by its notes at the first sip upon pouring. No need to let it breathe… just exquisite 😍. Going back to buy 6 more bottles tomorrow!! — 12 days ago

Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2016

Elegant nose of beeswax, acacia flowers, pear, almond, mineral notes, lemon rind. Lacks concentration in the mid palate. Persistent thru the finish with the lifted style. — 11 days ago

Palladius Swartland White Blend 2017

9.2

Very pure in expression. Fragrant nose of acacia, white peach, baked apple, candle wax, hint of autumn grass. Not a ton of complexity but the purity of expression here is off the charts. Good stuff. — 2 months ago

Eisacktaler Kellerei

Valle Isarco / Eisacktaler Kerner 2018

River stones & stone fruit. Apricot, peach blossom, acacia, green apple and pear with hints of petrol (as you’d hope for in a crossing of Riesling with Schiava/Trollinger?!?!). Ripe and fuller bodied/viscous, but holds its high acidity well. — 6 days ago

Rivesaltes Ambré Hors d'Âge 6 Ans Vin Doux Naturel Grenache Blend

At risk of sounding weird, which obvi I’m gonna take because I am weird, this wine feels like an after school snack. So much golden raisins, dried orange peel and graham cracker. In elementary school I always hated golden raisins and got embarrassed in I ended up with raisins of any sort in my lunch because it seemed to scream NERD (and my friend Eliza told me they reminded her of cockroaches). Well F*#k peer pressure to be cool, which includes both snacking on dried fruits and adoring sweet wine. It’s not unctuous but is rich but not cloying. It does have those dried fruit and graham cracker after school notes plus some citrus and mayhaps there’s even a hazelnut and acacia blossom nearby? Pairs with mincemeat pie. — 24 days ago

Ürziger Würzgarten Spätlese Mosel Riesling 2019

This wine is delicious - pale lemon with a green tinge, 8%abv, medium sweet without being cloying thanks to abundant acidity. Lovely aroma of crushed stone, Mirabelle plums, lemon, lime, white peach, even a hint of pineapple along with honeysuckle and acacia. All the aroma are reflected on the palate with only the barest hint of petrol. Very long on the finish. It’s yours and closed now but in three or four years I’ll line up to get a glass of this. — 2 months ago

Domaine Ramonet

Les Ruchottes Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2004

Light gold color, youthful in the glass. Notes of lemon, white peach, honeysuckle, some spearmint, some white acacia flowers and a nice tropical sea breeze. Tight and solid in the mouth, despite 2 hours of air in a decanter. Has a great minerality in its delivery. Good structure and acidity. Still early in its journey, at least this bottle was. — 8 days ago

Ruinart

Dom Ruinart Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2007

This wine at 14 years in the bottle is still vibrantly youthful on the palate. Crisp lemon, apple, brioche, acacia, lime, hazelnut, candied lemon peel and a light note of beeswax emerge on the nose with a zesty foundation of crushed stone. Bone dry, the wine pulses with flavor and last seemingly forever on the finish. Beautiful, powerful, majestically structured with great finesse. Very impressive. — 2 months ago
