My wife’s birth-year. Smooth as a baby’s butt...Caramel, butterscotch, and a hint of chewy english toffee. Just the slightest bite on the long, boisterous finish. It’s all about the age and the barrels, but just the top-off for a chilly Covid election eve. — 19 days ago
About as elegant a style of Syrah as you can get. Complex nose has crumbly granite, Szechuan peppercorn, fire-charred beef, boysenberry fruit. Soft and mouthfilling flavors, with a beautiful balance between mineral, savory, and dark but not sweet fruit. Very soft texture and perfectly pitched acids. Terrific. — 17 days ago
En utrolig god vin. 18 år og lagret. Spiss forsmak men mange spennende smaker etterhvert som den utvikler seg. Et kupp. Kun 220,- ish . Her får du mye vin for pengene. Nytes til en nydelig ytrefilet av okse med sopp og tyyyebær, kanskje en fløtebasert saus . Spiser du dette med denne vinen så vil du få en fantastisk opplevelse — 16 days ago

"The 1990 Vintage is a blend of 17 different Crus, all classified as Grands and Premiers Crus.
Black grapes make up two thirds of the blend: 56% Pinot Noir, from the Montagne de Reims and the Grande Vallée de la Marne, and 11% Meunier, from the Premiers Crus in the west of the Montagne de Reims.
The blend is completed with 33% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs and, to a lesser extent, from the Montagne de Reims." — 25 days ago
Color of rose gold- beautiful! Dry, fine bubbles, pops- 2nd glass with tacos tasted just a hint of sweetness. I like it! — 21 days ago
Has a harder edge than some of the other petite arvines I have been trying. More minerality, and more oak. But no prominent vanilla and less rounded mouthfeel but still dense. I like it, seems more serious. — 10 days ago
Nose is all game, meat and feral St. Joseph aromas. So different than the stoney regular cuvee. Beautiful and classy. A step up. Florals and high toned and unreal, precise and expansive blackberry fruit. Gorgeous menthol and spice on the nose. Just intense and dizzying aromas. 9.5 aromas. Wow. What a palate. Insanely juicy and so deep with just terrific cut. This is a briliant new find. There is real substance and cut here. Awesome palate. Shows exceptional class and refinement. Terrific freshness and sweetness allied with insane granitic cut. Just so so long. This is a revelation. So so delicious. Big structure. This is a 20 year wine. Reminds me a bit of Fauterie st. Joseph Le combaud. Wow. As this airs out it gets more stoney and just so much more precise. So great. Unreal fruit and depth. Magical stuff. Keeps getting more elegant and defined.
Big time update. Amazing length, texture and grip. Takes over your mouth. Unreal fruit and purity. Just a masterpiece. Takes on so much more on day 2. 9.5 to 9.6.

Total Wine pickup....Bright, non earthy, very pleasant Rasteau, if not overly distinctive...I don’t do the fruit thing but cherries come to mind — 2 days ago
