Domaine Bernard Gripa

Parady Saint-Joseph Syrah 2016

Lyle Fass

Young but will so great from this new rare Gripa St. Joseph Cuvee. More finesse driven than the Berceau and sits between that and the regular St. Joseph. Gorgeous nose of smoked meat, mint, hint of oak, big red berry fruit, floral and superb granite. What one wants. I love it. As it aerates a perfume develops. Palate is deep, structured, fresh and ripe. So clean. Juicy and substantial tannins but elegant as well. Long finish with superb clarity and sap. Really well made and also young. But just a terrific debut. — 13 days ago

Domaine Bernard Defaix

Vieille Vigne Côte de Léchet Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

What a lovely Chablis. Surprise of the night; not because we didn’t know it would be good, but because we didn’t know it would be this good. What a value. Loads of minerality. Needs more time, but decanted well and you could sense the goodness there. Classic Chablis nose and palate. Some oak there but really balanced everything out. Seek this out and put some back several more years. I love the 2014’s. — 6 days ago

Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2016

No. 3 in the White Burgundy Grand Cru lineup tasted blind. Nutty caramel note, muted fruit at this stage. Piercing intensity on the palate. Powerful. Wonderful. So much potential. I expect fireworks in 5 to 10 years for those lucky enough to be holding a bottle. The class of Chevalier shining through. — 3 days ago

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2005


A “simple” Bourgogne yet with the soul of Gevery shining brightly with earth and red fruits and heft and silky but firm textures and long finish. It’s fourteen years on and still got time left. Impressive. Can only imagine what his 1 crus are like. — a day ago

Domaine Bernard Baudry

Le Clos Guillot Chinon Cabernet Franc 2009

Nose of dried violet, fire roasted green bell pepper, earth, cherry, iron.

Raspberry, cherry, cranberry, and earth. Still great acidity with dusty, slightly astringent tannin. Love that lingering cranberry bitterness on the finish.

Wonderful stuff with all the classic Loire cab franc notes you know and love. Still a lot of structure there 10 years out. Could go longer to soften out and evolve.

Les Journaries Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2016

This changed personality about 6 times over 6 hours... all interesting people. And ended with the best. Started well balanced, turned slightly sour, then a bit bretty, finally came together into a dark berry olive earthy suave character. Recommend with patience. — a month ago

Château Pape Clément

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Had this about year and half ago. The first harvest at this estate was in 1252. The property is now owned by Bernard Magrez. A blend, 58% Merlot, 38% Cab Sauv & 4% Petit Verdot, aged in 60% new French oak. Deep Ruby with youthful pronounced red/black fruit aromas with spice notes. Blackberry, plum & cherry flavors with tobacco and spice integrated with sweet tannins, ling ending with earthy oak with a mineral tang. Excellent! Needs more time! Tasting Sample! — 5 days ago
