Grand Cru Classé Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Drinking so well. A great wine and a first for me. It’s got so much freshness and energy is the headline. Nose is cassis, vanilla, tobacco, spice and some hints of black fruits. Also a background of awesome minerality. A plump nose which belies what comes on the palate. It’s rich but just teeming with energy and so much black and red fruit that is super crunchy and luscious. Gorgeous clarity to the minerality and a freshness I haven’t tasted in Bordeaux maybe ever. I really like the vibe of this wine. The finish keeps pumping. Very very impressive. It’s also so sappy on the finish and just outrageously complex. — 15 days ago

@Lyle Fass Compared to Napa Cabs-no. For BDX, depends on the producer.

Château Le Gay

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Rather bold with strong aroma, this is definitely not a light blend. This would go really well with Lamb Shank or Blue Cheese. This seems to have a tinge of higher tannin with an aftertaste taste of perhaps blackberry. But less of the sweetness — 9 days ago

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2020

Standard strong, bright, right hook from this Bordeaux. Very solid. — 7 days ago

Fleury Pere & Fils

Fleur de l'Europe Brut Champagne

A distinct shade of medium old gold with with persistent little bubbles. The nose is resplendent with apples of the green variety. An abundance of citrus scents along with yeast and a touch of nuttiness. Just a bit of smeared honey aromas goes a long way here.

Biodynamic and beautiful. Zero dosage and aged for six years, the strength here is balance and purity. Terroir driven and electric, this is an incisive and focused champagne. Composed of 85/15 Pinot Noir/Chardonnay and wonderfully dry. Lemons and dried herbs on the palate along with cherries and apples. Long and dry and lovely.

Domaine Sylvain Pataille

Fleur de Pinot Marsannay Pinot Noir Rosé 2027

Unique in that Sylvain Pataille only uses his best grapes in this Rose. I was lucky enough to get a couple of bottles. Shared with Matt and Paul. Stunning bottle. Tart red berries, forest floor, a little tannic. Changed in the glass as it got air, revealing more layers and subtle nuances. — 8 days ago
