Cuvée No. 739 Extra Brut Champagne

Shay A

Monthly WTF guys blind tasting group. This month was our annual, and famed, Left Bank vs Right Bank theme. All wines served blind as usual. Started off with a Rosé and a champagne. Great night.

Seems to happen every time a champagne is opened that isn’t made in a clear style, we all discussed reductive vs oxidative. I think this toes the line of both styles. Roasted lemon and chalk but also slightly doughy and savory. Not quite creamy upfront, but full.

@Arden Barnett : Hard not to enjoy these for sure! Delicious.

@Severn Goodwin : Very enjoyable now, but certainly no harm in holding a couple of years. That being said, it feels nicely balanced now.

Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2007

This wine was singing to me and reminds me of why I love CDP. Perfectly balanced with the right amount of pepper and spice and fruit. This wine has at least 5-10 years left in the tank — 5 days ago

Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1978

In the decanter much darker than I would have expected. Tight on both the nose and the palate for the first 30-45 minutes. Grudgingly began to open with a dark fruit profile, secondary flavors and decent structure. Burly in the mouth but as the evening moved to its conclusion I found the wine a little disjointed. — 14 days ago

@Riccardo L. I am sorry you were tagged. All morning I was getting an error message “500”
Perhaps the Delectable IT dept. can fix this.

Cuvee 741 Extra Brut Champagne

Very unique selection. When it began to warm up I smelled it again in the glass and immediately thought of a dish I had not too long ago that had coriander & pickled kohlrabi in it; this smelled just like that dish, plus additional notes of lemon zest, bruised pear, pineapple, and a minerality that spoke of crushed river stones sprinkled with mint & rhubarb. Complex and wholly unique. — 10 days ago

@Ryan Vento I enjoy these bottles, but have come to know that patience treats them well. We have a No. 739 in hiding.

Thanks @Jason Brater

@Severn Goodwin I can certainly see that; would love to see what some aging would do to it.

Hugel et Fils

Cuvée Les Amours Alsace Pinot Blanc 2015

Oldest cellar dates back to 1551, with rows of oak wine casks, over one hundred years old, crafted by the forefathers of the present generation of Hugels. The oldest cask in the world still in use: the Sainte Caterine, a capacity of 8,800 litres, built in 1715, the year Louis XIV died. Aromas of fruit & citrus aromas. Palate stone & tropical flavors, citrus notes, vivid acidity, medium finish. Nice! — 3 days ago

Fleurie Gamay 2017

Impeccable value. Mulberry, dark cherry, boysenberry, peony, touch of tarragon. Sandy, grainy tannins that are quite drying. Nice level of extract to the wine. — 17 hours ago
