Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2017

Graillot is one of my all time favorites. I bought one ‘17 to test and see how much more of the ‘17 I want to buy. And not much. It’s delicious... but the last few years seem to be evolving away from the unique Alain Graillot style I remember from years past. Still can’t get the ‘95 out of my head... it ruined me. — 4 days ago

Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2009

This was lovely and seamless, suave texture and mouth filling black fruit. Such a delight and contrast next to the structured Dujac Clos St. Denis. The nose was a bit one dimensional with the fruit in that comparison but for what it was it was delicious! — a day ago

Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2014

Great concentration and but the tannins are pretty integrated which makes for smooth drinking. Darker red fruit notes on the nose with a floral but solid finish. — a month ago

St. Joseph Syrah 2017

Like an elegant Alain Crozes... or even Max Cornas. Gorgeous stuff right out of the bottle. Wonderful nose. Tightens a bit and then opened again the 3rd night. Obviously young to drink on release but now I know to buy a few more. — a month ago

Les Beaumonts Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2009

Mid Ruby in colour. Earthy aromas - the perfume of Vosne Romanee. Sappy Red fruits - just medium weight. Expected more complexity from this 1er Cru and good vintage, although good persistence and length. Medium minus Tannins. I don’t normally comment on a wine label, but being a printer, this had the classic Burgundian graphic art and type face - beautiful! — 21 days ago

@Severn Goodwin Agreed although I had a 2010 of exactly the same Cuvée and my notes indicate I liked it better. Hopefully my last 2009 will show better in the future.

Élevée en Fûts de Chêne Vieilles Vignes Chablis Chardonnay

A great value Chablis, not flinty but still enough structure with mid weight palate. — 6 days ago

Brut Champagne Blend

Yummy. We are going to visit this estate next year. Heck, it could be in parsipanny and we would still go. So clean and dry but the fruit still stands out. Matches perfectly with prosciutto and melon. — a month ago
