Torus Madiran Tannat Blend 2014

A classic pairing with cassoulet and one of those awesome situations where the wine seemed better by the meal than on its own. Dark fruited and some licorice-like qualities. Fantastic acidity cuts through the heft of the meal. Loved this pairing! — 12 days ago

Bas de Combe Nuits St. Georges Pinot Noir 2014

Nose has wet red/black currants, ripe-tart cherry, dry autumn leaves and dry soil.

Palate has ripe cherry, ripe plum, blackberry and red currant. Not much complexity at this time, but showing bold acidity and medium tannins.

I think still quite youthful, future bottles could be 2024+, hoping for improvement. I've generally been happy on the progress of many '14 Burg's, this seems more youthfully austere in its development.

Needs air, but once it opens up. Whoa! Meaty, gamy (in a good way). Savory. Very long finish. Excellent with lamb. — 15 days ago

Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir

This has a wonderfully succulent nose. Soft red fruit, that wonderful classy burg depth. On the palate great balance and super fresh for its age. Nice balance at the middle and a good finish. The front is the thing here and the rest is a bit more prosaic s as often is the way with Clos Vougeot, but this is a lovely wine in great shape. — 2 days ago

Les Chenes Vert Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2018

This complex white Rhône was a hit with our tasting group. Great mix of texture and floral aromatics. Medium full body with assertive acidity. A profound start to our Cote Rotie tasting. — 3 days ago
