The Upper Terrace Pinot Noir 2016

Delectable Wine
9.6

Translucent ruby-red. Powerful red fruit liqueur, potpourri, incense and smoky mineral scents, along with hints of cola and exotic spices. Alluring sweet and animated on the palate, offering densely packed raspberry, boysenberry, spicecake, floral pastille flavors and a strong undercurrent of zesty minerality. Fine-grained tannins frame and shape a powerful, mineral-driven finish that lingers with superb persistence and mounting sweetness. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2019) — 5 days ago

Rosacker Alsace Grand Cru AOC Riesling 2015

Grapes hand-picked, fermented on lees in large old wooden barrels. Pale lemon color with medium+ intensity aromas of floral, green and citrus fruits with biscuit notes. On the palate this dry wine shows flavors of honeysuckle, green apple, lemon, almonds with touch of mineral. Medium+ acidity with notes high alcohol on medium+ finish. Very good will benefit from some short term aging. Tasting Sample. — 13 days ago

The Upper Terraces Grenache 2006

The label was a heck of a lot more worn than the wine! This was tasted alongside a 2013 BF Pinot and to me was hands-down the winner between the two. I almost think there was a slight bit of VA with the pinot. This one was delicious and had some wildflower on the nose and palate. Grape stem notes and a purple fruit type of thing here with a little bit of chocolate in the middle. Finished with rounded edges. I think the best years of this wine are behind it, but it was definitely not gone. — 24 days ago

Love these wines, but I'm not an Upper Terrace collector, those are more than I'm generally willing to part with, so we just buy the regular BF estate bottles.

Didn’t know they made a Grenache

@Hugh O'Riordan it was a learning experience for me too. Based on the label I thought it was a shipwreck bottle!!

Domaine Ghislaine Barthod

Aux Beaux Bruns Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1996

Fresh and vibrant. Quite generous for the vintage, but with a firm backbone still. Red fruit dominated nose, with some violet and undergrowth tones. Palate's all about that plump fruit, with soy sauce, cloves, earth. It's dense with fine tannins and bright acidity. There's a clear Chambolle elegance here, but I would have loved to have tasted more mineral notes. — 14 days ago
