Brut Rosé de Saignée Champagne

A stunning rosé champagne. First off, there’s that amazing salmon color. Not a ton of bubbles but those that are there are tiny. Ridiculously deep nose featuring plums, dried cherries, and ripe strawberry. Fresh herbs, oolong tea, and rose petals compliment. It really is such a pretty and graceful bouquet.

100% Pinot Meunier, this is rich and delectable throughout. Creamy and sensual in the mouth, this is silky smooth. Zero dosage and quite fruity, the two Pinots really work their magic here. It’s very vibrant and generous.

Intense raspberries attack the palate, along with cherries. Traces of mild oak, freshly baked bread, and mint. Sassafras, creamy vanilla, crushed petals, and nuts. A really unique and delicious Grower champagne. Outstanding on every level.

Dorine Le Mesnil Sur Oger Champagne Blend

I was more prepared for this today (by comparison to my last btl, where I was expecting a slightly richer version of the Quartz). Very rich nose: lime mousse, vanilla, stone, but still so charming. On the palate, fantastic acidity, lime, almond, hazelnut mousse, wet stone, but still very hi-toned. Such a lovely hi-toned finish...wish I had disg info. — 6 days ago

Réserve Grand Veneur Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2019

Fresh violets, - a lovely uplifting nose.

Medium bodied and delicious - Pomegranate seed, bright cherry, basil, mint. A very floral powered wine, text has such wonderful fruit and tannin to balance that out. A child, I know. Yet needed to taste ins before buying a case..

Les Tuilières Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Pale lemon with pleasant aromas of stone fruits, citrus, herb and honey notes. On the palate flavors of ripe peach and pear with lemon citrus, honeysuckle and nutty notes. Medium+ finish, good balance ending with juicy tangy mineral character. Nice! — 4 days ago

Cuvée Cuis 1er Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay

Double Magnum format; a delicious and exciting way to toast the bride and groom! Loads of citrus with a hint of brioche. A touch creamy. Long finish. A perfect aperitif but pairs deftly with any meal. — 11 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Volnay Pinot Noir 2017

I miss the tastings with this semi-confinement we are still in and stole the idea of @Benoit Duhamel here, so we made one at home with my son and my wife who are both wine fanatics as I am too. We chose 6 red Burgundies Villages 2017, 3 Côtes de Beaune and 3 Côte de Nuits and we tasted these blind, each of us giving ranks and points for each wines. Tasting blind usually doesn’t lie and it can bring numerous surprises which it did in that case. All wines were fo a good level here, no bad wines and all were fun and good indiviually but the results were pretty clear cut in terms of the Côte de Beaune winning this battle.

1- Chassagne-Montrachet villages 2017 Jean-Claude Ramonet 32 pts
2- Volnay Vieilles Vignes 2017, Henri DeLaGrange 28 pts
3- Auxey-Duresses Très Vieilles Vignes 2017, Alain Gras 26 pts
4- Chambolle-Musigny Les Véroilles 2017, Bruno Clair 20 pts
5- Gevrey-Chambertin 2017, Lucien Boillot 12 pts
6- Gevrey-Chambertin 2017 Les Évocelles, Louis Boillot 8 pts

DelaGrange: spices and a touch animal too on the nose. Vivid acidity with a nice medium bodied structure, very balanced, good length and delicious finish. My number 3. 90-91


On s’ennuie des dégustations et j’ai bien aimé l’idée de @Benoit Duhamel , merci Benoit. Alors s’en est fait une à la maison à trois (en respectant les règles bien sûr). Nous avons choisi 6 Bourgogne Villages Rouges 2017, 3 Côtes de Beaune et 3 Côtes de Nuits, nous avons dégusté à l'aveugle et accordé des points à chaque position, il n’y avait aucun mauvais vin dans le lot et tous étaient très bien si bu individuellement, mais la dégustation à l’aveugle ne ment pas et les résultats peuvent être surprenants, les vins de la Côte de Beaune ont remporté la palme facilement ici, alors pour s’amuser un peu, voici le classement que cela a donné :
1- Chassagne-Montrachet villages 2017 Jean-Claude Ramonet 32 pts
2- Volnay Vieilles Vignes 2017, Henri DeLaGrange 28 pts
3- Auxey-Duresses Très Vieilles Vignes 2017, Alain Gras 26 pts
4- Chambolle-Musigny Les Véroilles 2017, Bruno Clair 20 pts
5- Gevrey-Chambertin 2017, Lucien Boillot 12 pts
6- Gevrey-Chambertin 2017 Les Évocelles, Louis Boillot 8 pts

DelaGrange: Fruits noirs, épices, une touche animale aussi. Belle structure de corps moyen avec une acidité vive, bel équilibre et assez long en bouche. Mon no 3 personnellement. 90-91
