Seductive. Chocolate and raspberries. Plush, then lean, then rocky. — 17 days ago

Piedlong Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2011

Happy to see how this has developed. Still has lift and more freshness than some CNDP, but its settled into its own, the balance of acid, alcohol, and tannin and settled in nicely. Strawberry compote, Christmas spice cake, dried lavender, licorice root, black tea, sweet meat, slight hint of beef broth. Seems like another day will unfold more. Surprised with how some of the 2011’s have aged, given how charming and open knit they were on release. Day 2 is another wine, the stoney mineral and spice notes have really came to the front; Allspice Dram, baked rocks, iron, cinnamon and clove. Without the lush fruit the wines structure is way more apparent, its become more rectangular in shape and the higher elevation site seems to come through on the acid and tannin. — 4 days ago

Domaine du Vieux Chateau Vaillon Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2005

This was bomb. Fresh, terroir driven, complex and lengthy, a true wine of place and vintage. So much textural depth and grip as well. Struck flint, crushed oyster shell, crisp orchard fruits and lemon, sea spray, loads of earth and cheese rind. So vibrant and alive. I could drink this everyday — 19 days ago

Lovely and crisp; surprisingly for a French Chardonnay it has a little butter on the nose and palate. But it’s like French butter— better and creamier than the American version. — 19 days ago

Domaine du Vieux Château Vieilles Vignes Chablis Chardonnay 2014

One of the finest chardonnays I have tasted to date. A beautiful Smokey nose is offset by a classic cold-climate Chardonnay acid rain with notes of gruyere cheese and well-integrated oak. A gritty saltiness grips the palate and complements the natural astringency of the wine. Paired with Parmesan cheese at the suggestion of a friend and the pairing was phenomenal. — 25 days ago

Κπ Sauvignon Blanc del Valle del Alberche

Sauvignon blanc skin contact. Not as funky as usual skin contact Wines. It has very sweet fruit forward in first sip but it balances out with cleaner ending. — 4 days ago

Valencia Shiraz

Not the typical Shiraz. Tart, structured wine with good tannins but not overwhelming. Nice bright fruit. A good find by friends from Spain. — 14 days ago
