Genevrières Dessous Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Fat and rich like the '15s are, but enough energy to carry it. Like The Fridge scoring a TD for the Bears. — 22 days ago

Mazoyères-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Monster of a wine in a glorious year from a highly talented producer. Decant for 45 minutes, cherries, blackberries, raspberries, layers of complexities, damp. Just super potential will be fantastic in 5 years. Right now a meal in itself but approachable. — 11 days ago

Silex Pouilly-Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Mid Lemon in colour. Initial touch of oxidation on nose which largely disappeared. Barb said aromas of Dandelion which is a lawn weed in Australia. Very minerally (from soil riddled with flint). Touch of pineapple. This is barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc from Pouilly Fume and as different as possible from Marlborough NZ Sauvignon Blanc. Great Intensity on the palate with the Oak in perfect balance. One of the 1001 wines. In the book “probably the greatest white made in the Upper Loire Valley”. I would like to try a younger vintage in the future. Made by the eccentric Didier Dagueneau. — 8 days ago

@Bob McDonald We happened across this exact wine in the early 2000's and were smitten ever since. I sought out large format bottles for safe keeping, every one has been epic and holding just fine. This bottle and the Pur Sang are our favorites. I almost got a pre-2008 Asteroide once, but it slipped through my fingers as I didn't react fast enough to secure. One day though...

Les Annereaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Highly enjoyable for $13. Happy Monday! Initially its overly fruity and too much blueberry but after 30 or minutes, this became much more open and balanced. Dark fruit, eucalyptus, violet, and leather flavors. Great everyday drinker. — 14 days ago
