Pinot Noir Sancerre Rouge 2017

2017 pinote at will with nuanced notes of hazelnut, under wood that support the primary aromas of red, purple and pepper fruits. Tense finish, fine tannins. 2017 pinote à souhait avec des notes nuancées de noisette, sous bois qui viennent soutenir les arômes primaires de fruits rouge, violette et poivre. Finale tendue, tanins fins. — 12 days ago

Pur Sang Pouilly-Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2005

Tasted blind. Light gold color. Exotic nose. Notes of citrus, grapefruit, tangerine, lemongrass, cut green apples and a little pineapple. Goes great with the cheese and snacks we have. I’m immediately in Sancerre world with my guess. Very mineral in it’s mouth feel, lots of acidity. I guess Cotat as the producer. This is a fun wine, and really well made. — 2 months ago

Glad this held up. I still have some in our cellar. And prior vintages...

Pouilly-Fumé Silex 1990

Tasted blind. Medium gold in the glass with nice weight. Tropical nose with notes of ripe orchard fruit, bread, some waxy and grassy elements. Ascertained quickly that this is not chardonnay juice, and we’re all throwing out wild guesses, most of which are around the wine being chenin blanc. Wrong. We were all amazed and excited when it was revealed to be an old Silex. Many of us have collected the Silex, but never have had one with age. Someone had the 05 recently and said it was far more advanced than this 90. Really great data point and fortunate to be able to try an older bottle of this. Thanks Steve! — a month ago

Amazing! I have a small collection of Dag wines up to 2008, but nothing this old.

Côte de Nuits Villages Pinot Noir 2014

I believe its whole cluster mostly, so great tannic backbone and spices on a flowery and fresh, balanced finish. Good stuff and is to drink or hold. — a month ago

Pierre á Feu Sauvignon 2019

“Pierre à Feu is sourced from Vincent's thirty year-old Sauvignon Blanc vines that are planted on the silex (flint and clay) soils that extend east from the Cher River. When I asked why he named the wine Pierre à Feu (French for "flint", or literally, "firestone"), Vincent smiled, "The name 'Silex' was already taken," [by Didier Dagueneau's estate, who produces a similar cuvée of Sauvignon grown on flint and clay; however, the cost of one bottle of Domaine Didier Dagueneau "Silex" is about the same as a six-pack of Domaine Ricard Pierre à Feu.]

In the glass, this shimmering pale yellow-gold Sauvignon Blanc reveals enticing aromas of white grapefruit, bergamot, lemon verbena, and gun smoke, along with apricot, green mango, sage and orange oil, as the nose evolves over time. On the palate, the wine is silky, polished, precise and persistent, with a fine core of yellow-green citrus and exotic fruit flavors that echo the nose, all seasoned with its namesake flinty minerality throughout a seemingly endless finish.” — Moore Brothers
