Domaine du Coulet (Matthieu Barret)

Petit Ours Brun Côtes du Rhône Syrah 2019

Dark fruit with spice and pepper. Medium+ acidity, medium+ youthful tannins. Distinct minerality, reminiscent of wine from Cornas, but for a fraction of the price. Great value, especially since it was purchased on-sale ($18) at Suburban Wines in Yorktown Heights, NY. — 18 days ago

L'Ancien Le Buissy Beaujolais Gamay 2018

Tastes better than it smells. Has aromas of bandaids and a green note. Palate has crunchy cranberries. A tad austere. — 2 months ago

Domaine Thevenot Le Brun & Fils

Les Renardes Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Pinot Noir 2018

Garnet in color. Intense aroma of red licorice, cranberry, dried cherries, and smoke. Incredible earthy palate that tastes of campfire and unsweetened chocolate. It finishes with very mild tannins and long lingering flavor of earth , like autumn leaves on a forest floor. — 14 days ago

Réserve Lucile Avril Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2007

Wow! 😍
This is really outstanding.
Somehow, this wine shows a lot of Syrah/Mourvedre character. Black cherries, warm blackberry pie, grilled meat, cocoa nibs, Asian spice, damp earth, warm chestnuts... wonderful!
On the palate this has tremendous balance, soft tannines, gentle acidity, no overbearing Grenache-sweetness. Such a terrific mouthfeel. Clean, savoury, not rustic at all.
Superb, and exactly how I like my grenache dominant Red Rhone-blends, which are a bit of a hit and miss in my book...
Completely agree with Jeb’s/TWA score.
Insane QPR, as well.

Morgon Gamay

Jean-Paul Brun continues to deliver high quality wines to us. Here a fleshy yet crunchy Morgon (morello cherry) drunk on New Year's Eve and appreciated by all the guests.

Jean-Paul Brun continue de nous délivrer des vins de haute facture. Ici un Morgon charnu et néanmoins croquant (cerise griotte) bu pendant le réveillon du nouvel an et apprécié par tous les convives.

Grand Cru Brut Nature Aÿ Champagne Blend

Consistent with my last notes, 6 months prior, only change today...bubbles are light in the glass, but palate and nose are solid. 🤷‍♂️
On the top end of the Fass Selections Champagne offers, and still worth the price; last bottle.

An unusually warm December day (55°F) today, so we're relaxing in front of a fire in the chiminea, peaceful.

Prior notes:
Nose has toasted nuts, grilled bread, oxidized red apple, day old lemon pith, golden raisin and apple turnover with sugar glaze.
Palate has lively acid, delicate iodine over green apple, warm honey drizzle on toasted challah bread and delicate toasted oak notes. Long and powerful finish, pure, emotional enjoyment.

65% Chardonnay / 35% Pinot Noir
