Love it. Just so nice to enjoy a bottle when you can just open it, pour it and drink it. Last Friday of Lent so another meatless meal. — 2 days ago

Richebourg Pinot Noir 1999

Where do you begin? An entrancing nose- dark seductive fruit with spice and a supple freshness. Absolutely glorious on the palate with a velvety texture and a really complex yet delicious finish. This goes on and on and is utterly absorbing. What a treat and decades ahead. — 12 days ago

Nuits St. Georges Pinot Noir 2013

D9. Enjoyed at Monsieur Paul at the French showcase of Epcot. Food was fantastic and this wine hit it out of the park. Called the night before and paid for the bottle using a little Disney magic. It was open for a few hours last night, recorked, and opened upon arrival. Whoa Daddy. Love Nuits St Georges when it's firing on all cylinders. The nose is dirty raspberry, black cherry, black tea, mint, peppery, and you could almost envision the soil that gave life to these grapes. The entry has all of these things, with the middle gaining some dates and tobacco. Hint of herb. Finishes with a lot of youthful tannin despite being extremely expressive for what this one is. I don't think this bottle was incredibly expensive, but it really killed tonight. Drink or hold for a decade. — 8 days ago

"Les Grasses Têtes" Marsannay Pinot Noir 2013

Pulled this out of the cellar to pour on our pairing menu this weekend. It’s in a great spot for quail, gnocchi and truffles. Pure morello cherry 🍒 with a bit of tannic structure. A family that goes back to 1898 in Marsannay. — 2 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1996

Smokey black fruit, game, dusty, hefty mid-palate, balanced acidity, kept evolving, drinking great but still has enough stuffing for the long haul. — 2 days ago

Lovely dark cherry and spice, earthy and so mineral. Very precise. Palate is silky and ripe, with lovely purity and crunchy fruit. So suave and stylish. Deep and penetrating fruit and lovely elegant structure. Terrific wine. — 10 days ago

Chambolle-Musigny Pinot Noir 2015

Bright ruby color. Red fruit, roses and light spice in the fairly open nose. Soft and inviting palate, with a slight tannic edge. Ends gracefully. Delicious but has the bones to age. Excellent entry level wine from a great producer. — 3 days ago

Clos Saint-Jacques Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1993

Almost gave up on this bottle until the 4th hour when it finally opened up. Last glass showed spicy red fruit, minor sous bois, leather, dusty earth with grippy tannins. Very old school structure. Really needs air to shine. — 5 days ago

Green pepper, plum and spice on a lean nose. Good clarity and precision. Slightly sour notes with undergrowth and a slightly wild, animal quality. Cool and pure. — 6 days ago
