Les Plants Nobles Pinot Noir 2019

Fancy label, cool buildings. Smells good. Berries, apple skins and some kinda tonic. Flavors are simple, fresh and easy. Balance is nice. Nice herbal, plant leaf stuff in the mix. Not big at all. — 22 days ago

J. Schram Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2011

Last of my cellars club high quality shipments, end of an era. Really going to miss wines like this one. 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir. Drank the whole bottle in one sitting with a bag of Boom Chicka Pop because that was the best tip I’ve received in the caves. — 11 days ago

La Croix de la Perrière Côte-Rôtie Red Rhone Blend 2016

After a « simple » natural wine as an aperitif that seems simpler, we tell ourselves that this wine is not as remarkable as the label promises. The aromatic range is interesting, unfolding as you taste it. Typical notes of noble Syrah: violet, black fruits, pepper, blackcurrant, smoked larded notes. The volume on the palate is medium bodied and the finish might have needed a few more hours of aeration, as can be seen from the difference between the 1st and 3rd glass. Good but not wow

Après un vin nature à l’apéro à priori plus simple, on se dit que ce vin n’est pas aussi remarquable que l’étiquette le promet. La gamme aromatique est intéressante, se déployant à mesure de la dégustation. Notes typique de la Syrah noble: violette, fruits noirs, poivre, cassis, notes lardées fumées. Le volume en bouche est moyen corsé et la finale aurait peut-être eu besoin de quelques heures supplémentaires d’aération, en atteste la différence entre le 1er et le 3ème verre. Bien mais pas wow
