Clos du Joncuas

La Font de Papier Vacqueyras 2017

Very young, quite wound up, needed 3 days before being open for business. Great harmony of whole cluster and extraction, rustic and complex. You really cannot go wrong with la famille Chastain! — a month ago

Guillon-Painturaud

V.S.O.P. Grande Champagne Cognac

At least 15 years of age on this VSOP from a family-owned producer. 40% abv. Very fragrant scotch-like vanilla oak and dried fruit. Complex and spicy finish. Goes well with dates and salted almonds as a digestif. Sipping it neat by a Christmas tree, but it also really wakes up with an ice cube🎄 Not Henny! 🙌 — 2 months ago

Double Trouble IPA

It’s been three years since my last review of this little slice of double trouble. Loose and thorny crown of creamy white with cartoon bone lacing plus bubble font. Golden overall, but reddish tinges turn it pink. Banana bread, with honey butter, a bit of molasses and orange marmalade scented, but the breakfast stops there. Healthy dollops of of honey buoy herbs de Provence, golden apple, juniper sharpness, lemon-arabica, pecan, and extra lavender. .

Domaine Font de Michelle

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 1999

Appearance is somewhat brickish and cloudy. Has thrown off some sediment. Nose is a bit reserved, with some notes of lavender, menthol and hoisin. Took a little time to settle down and open up but once it did it was a very nice, classic CDP. It won’t improve from here but showing well - drink up over next 2-3 years if you have any. — a month ago

Delamain

"Pale & Dry" Cognac Grande Champagne

The scent opens with rich honey, very dense, and then gives way to stewed apples and pears with just a little oak vanilla on the back end. The palette is all of that with an addition of dried flowers and black tea. The oak is nicely balanced here, not overpowering but enough to give backbone to the fruity and floral flavors. Black tea and violet finish. — 2 months ago

Mikkeller

Nelson Sauvin Brut Belgian Wild Ale

French bubbling onion broth, with fungal asymmetry the partnering haberdasher’s cheese motif, and pictographs and hieroglyphic bubble letters the font-lacing. Caramel-orange and yeast with hibiscus and dried lotus slices. There is a peppermint coolness to the backnote and a clean, bok choy sweetness. Tastes of caramel and verdelho-Madeira, and lemon, orange and grapefruit interplay mutating into a cilantro and Vidalia, that ultimately return to the yeast, with marigold petals swimming in a malt and hop extravaganza. #mikkeller #nelsonsauvin #dryhopped #deproefbrouwerij #beer #bier #birra #biere #cerveza — a month ago

Delamain

Extra 1er Cru Du Cognac

Aromas of cigar box, plum and raisin, Christmas spices, gingerbread, pine cone, oak, bacon, toffee, Bananas Foster, baked apple with cinnamon. With all that super complexity on the scent, the palette comes in much sweeter and quite different, maple syrup up front followed by bacon and vanilla waffles with cooked banana slices. The scent is like Christmas, and the taste is like breakfast. Nicely done. — 2 months ago
