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.

Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2017

This wine totally surprised me- was way better than I expected. The wine has a nice opening - The body is nicely structured and the finish is wonderful and refreshing. This is a great all around sipper if you like acid forward with a vanilla dip at the end. — a month ago

Tradition Vin de Savoie Mondeuse Noir

Beautiful Mondeuse, aerial, mineral, light and precise. Pepper, violets, weird spices... subtle and delicate. Super enjoyable!
A bit below my expectations, I have to say, due to the cult given to the winemaker....

While the color has faded a bit, this wine flavor wise is in a great place. Still has a lot of cherry, earthy ,herbal ness. Not sure how many more years this will last but it’s awesome today. I am a fan of this guy — a month ago

Les Chênes Saint-Joseph Syrah 2018

Round and supple, with a very generous body on the usual notes of well-crafted Syrah: blackberries, blueberries, chocolate, roasting, caramel, tapenade, pepper, violet. The attack is fresh, and the finish not that long, but the whole is very mastery. The perfect wine for grilled meat, pepper or shallot sauce.

Rond et souple, avec un corps très gourmand sur les notes habituelles de la Syrah bien travaillée: mûres, myrtille, chocolat, torréfaction, caramel, tapenade, poivre, violette. L’attaque est fraiche, et la finale pas si longue, mais l’ensemble est d’une grandes maîtrise. Le vin parfait pour une viande grillée, sauce poivre ou échalote.
