Sur Le Sentier du Clou Saint-Aubin Chardonnay 2015

Huh, not nearly as good as previous btls...should I start to worry about '15 burg whites? Glad I've been steadily drinking them. On the nose: still has lovely noble reduction, but covering a bruised apple in honey note, lemon oil. On the palate: excellent acidity, white pepper and lemon. This all sounds good, but this wine lacked a certain intensity I expect from this producer. White pepper finish. — a month ago

Morta Maio Patrimonio Nielluccio 2015

Excellent. Spiced cherry notes on nose & palate. Darker fruit through the mid palate as it opens. Effortless weight with bright acid & chalky tannins. Corsican wine is simply fantastic. — a month ago

First time experience with this producer.

The nose reveals, bruised; red & golden apple, Bosc pear, overripe stone fruit & pineapple, lemon meringue, touch cider, nougat, almonds, cream to cream soda, hints of melted white butter, melted golden brown sugar, vanillin, sea fossil, crumbled, grey volcanics, chalky power, bread dough to yeast, limestone, understated limestone minerals, spring flowers, jasmine & withering white lilies.

The mouthfeel is rich, lively with excellent mousse. Quite beautiful. Bruised; red & golden apple, Bosc pear, overripe stone fruit & pineapple, lemon meringue, touch cider, nougat, almonds, cream to cream soda & ginger ale, hints of melted white butter, melted golden brown sugar, vanillin, sea fossil, crumbled, grey volcanics, chalky power, bread dough to yeast, hints of coconut with shell, white spice with just the right amount of heat, limestone, understated limestone minerals, spring flowers, jasmine & withering white lilies. The acidity is excellent. The finish is; well balanced & polished, elegant & simply near perfect finish. She is excellent wire to wire.

This is for you if you enjoy a Champagne that leans more oxidative.

Les Poruzots Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2010

2/3 good bottles. Not bad. Lemon, oil, citrus with 30second finish. — a month ago

Château Lestage

Cru Bourgeois Listrac-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend

2018 vintage. This historical estate has been in the hands of the Chanfreau family for over 50 years. They also own Château Fonréaud in Listrac and 2 Moulis estates (Châteaux Caroline and Chemin Royal). Lestage is the only Listrac granted Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel in the 2020 classification. The 2018 vintage is a blend of 62% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot. The nose is a bit oaky at first, but the wine starts to truly shine after an hour in the glass, so take your time or decant. Cherries, cassis and cedar wood in the nose. The fruit is concentrated and layered, embedded in a powerful tannic structure with very good balancing acidity. While the warmth of the vintage is unmistakable, there is no sign of jamminess. Impressively long finish too. Incredible value at 11,90 euros. If you open this in 7 or 8 years you will curse yourself that you didn't buy more. Kudos to the owners and consulting enologist Antoine Medeville. Abv. 14,5 %. — a month ago

Les Tillets Meursault Chardonnay 2017

Pale color; good sulfides with a hazelnut rather than burnt matchstick aromas; pear/white peach flinty notes. Great tension and concentration . More linear than fat but a totally compelling Meursault. — a month ago
