Refined bubbles, very clean flavor, simple but very good. — a month ago
We paired sushi with this 2016 Chablis Premier Cru from Domaine Corinne Perchaud. Aromas and flavors of honeycomb, apples, some pineapple, limestone and minerality. The pairing enhances the sushi flavors! 🥂🍣 — a year ago
Very pleasant Savoie white. Round and easy going, with peach pear and slate on the palate, refreshing finish. This is one of those “bottle had a hole in it” kind of wines — 3 years ago
Corinne Gonin, Julienas, Les Chanoriers 2019.
Really nice rustic nose with a bright cherry note, hay, a tiny bit of heat. It's quite inviting. The palate is delicious, with a very strong acid backbone, a nice cherry note all along with a good width, a nice and crisp mouthfeel which is disrupted by a mid palate with subtle tannins that add a layer of complexity and a tiny tangy tickle that remains, embracing a fruity recital of a finish. Probably the best Beaujolais I have sourced locally so far (except for a couple of widely overpriced Lapierre bottles I found a couple of years back) — 4 months ago

Fine and concentrated cuvée Magnum format. Unfiltered?
Deep purple dress. Nose made of fruits and spices, discreet oaky notes. Deep, aerial black cherry and flowers aromas in mouth with very fine tannins. We feel the aromatic concentration of old vines. Notes of evolution that pinote. It's a bit greasy and pleasant. Raised on les lies? Acidity contained. Wine at its peak, for a few more years.
Cuvée fine et concentrée en format Magnum. Non filtré?
Robe pourpre profonde. Nez fruits et épices, notes de fûts discrètes et fondues. Bouche aérienne et profonde sur des tanins très fins. On sent la concentration aromatique des vieilles vignes. Plutôt cerise noire et fleurs
Notes d’évolution qui pinotent. Côté un peu gras assez plaisant. Elevé sur lies? Acidité contenue. Vin à son apogée, pour quelques années encore. — 4 months ago
Finally getting around to posting wines from my annual Napa trip from two weeks ago. Always goes by quick! Lots of fun new stops this year.
It was my first time trying Moone-Tsai wines aside from their widely distributed Napa Valley Cab, so some of these were totally brand new to me. Melka is the winemaker.
Inaugural vintage for this wine. Fruit is coming from Petaluma Gap. This seems to have a Burgundian flair, but the fruit won’t allow it to go fully there. Fairly ripe black cherries, crunchy cranberries, underbrush, black tea and slightly green. Mellow on the palate with more tannin than acidity right now (which seems unique), and a definite dried floral, dried black fruit and herbal streak down the middle of the palate. Needs some time. — 2 years ago
