Most of the beauty will show after 1-2 days open. The charm lives within the amplitudes. It’s a highly calibrated precise weaving of chalk, saline, and yeast. Creamy piercing acid and Chardonnay typicity. Lemon, white perfumed flowers, yellow apple. Finish goes and goes. — 10 days ago
Champagne is for celebrating! Today, 12 years ago, I married my love & best friend in Cortona, Italy...in the heart of Tuscany. The day still lingers like it was yesterday. It was a spectacular day that I will never forget. Such memories!!!
So, to my wife Sofia, cheers!🍾🥂. I love you today more than ever.
All my previous notes apply. 9.4 on the Champange, a 10 on my partner choice and our day twelve years ago.
Photos of; the Piazza of the La Repubblica...the building we were married, us leaving for our reception and one of the better meals of our life, walking through town on the way to our reception and our wedding ceremony. — 12 days ago
Cuvée Speciale by Remoissenet. If you have the patience to keep a regional/village wine from a good producer in your cellar you can really treat yourself! Candied lemon, ripe pear, hints of oxidation (but in a good balanced way). The only question is ... who can wait that long?!?? — 3 days ago
Hay, cherry, a bit of oak and vanilla. The palate is very balanced with a nice sweet, juicy cherry all along a strong acid backbone, some width and some very pleasant touch on the sides. Some rolling tannins before a long and pleasant cherry driven finish. It's good and it's all you can expect from a village burgundy on the fruit side. Joyful and playful. — 6 days ago
an under the radar producer, I’ve had only a few wines from this domaine and each has been a headturner. This young Chablis is so focused and precise, lime zest and lemon, green apple, a bit of minerals. No chalk or oyster shell yet, but it’s got a lot of Chablis character and is a real refreshing quaff that has all the tastebuds happily humming in unison. Really intense and concentrated, it’s got a long future. Highly recommended. — 16 days ago
Very nice premier cru Volnay with a touch of age - certainly could use more as the tannins are a hair less than silky smooth on the finish. Deep red in the glass with lots of red fruit with some good earth as well. Excellent acid on the persistent finish. — 11 days ago
