Face Nord Grand Cru Extra Brut Champagne Blend

Popped and poured; enjoyed over the course of an hour. The wine pours a deep straw, bordering yellow color with medium+ viscosity and a persistent mousse. On the nose, the wine is developing with notes of raspberries, lemon, brioche, and minerals. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose though the fruit seem rounder on the palate than on the nose. The finish is medium+. A fairly agreeable Champagne. Disgorged in October 2022. — a month ago

Face Nord Grand Cru Rosé Champagne

When I can almost see the weekend.

NV Pehu Simonet Face Nord Rosé Grand Cru is a 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay blend. Striking pale salmon color. This is Verezenay and Verzy Grand Cru fruit. This is delicious. Stunning acidity, laser focused finished. Beautiful dry champagne. Paired perfectly with Indian.

Because champagne is always a good idea.

Domaine des Ouled Thaleb

Tandem Syrah du Maroc 2020

Always one of the sure values among Moroccan wines. Evocation of the Rhône-Nord, an ode to Syrah reminiscent of a Crozes or St Jo, under the vertical sun. Great consistency from the nose to the final. Requires at least two hours of ventilation. Floral, fruity, peppery etc. Even better the next day.

Bel Canto Cara Mia Vineyard Red Blend 2016

Have you baked fruit I’ve only slightly accompanied, bacon, spices, more like a little bit of juicy and fatty tannins that complement more than blend. Gives a good structure, so the whole thing doesn’t end up too jammy. Woods beyond oak like cedar, cigarbox, Cedar, Pinion-wood, things like that. A little bit of forest floor mushroom.  — 6 months ago

Special Pošip 2021

Barley, brine, lemon. Medium bodied- fleshy. Maybe the lobster on the label is suggestive, but this wine would be fantastic with seafood. — a year ago
