Clos de la Cure Pommard Pinot Noir 2017

9.4

This is brilliant. Huge expressive nose. So clean and full of mid season cherries, spice, flowers, mineral, licorice, high end bubble gum. So dope. Palate has stunning sweetness and purity. Oh man what a sphere. Stunning ripe tannins. Beautiful purity and so delicate. What a Pommard. Showing stupid elegance. True wow. Terrific inner mouth aromas. Ripe and juicy tannins and such complexity. A lot of material. Awesome. — a day ago

Cuvée à l'Ancienne Beaujolais Gamay 2016

Molto fresco e buono. Sento poco supmante, profumo speciale. Ha acidita forte ma e rotondo. Sarebbe perche e’ biodinamico? E facile bere troppo. Sarebbe pericoloso. Mi piacciono vini naturali. — 4 months ago

Forza Umpqua Valley Tempranillo 2015

So my cardiologist ❤️ told me that I couldn’t have any more wine 🍷 until we got my arrhythmias under control🤨. So I’ve had no wine for about three weeks now, and I have to say she was right. 🤔 I will be having a treatment by the end of the year that might cure me for good, 😃 but until then, no wine for me! But that leaves food, music and parties, so we’ll still be “Living the Life in Roseburg, Oregon! 🎉🎊🦞🥩🍤🎼🎹🎻🎸 — a month ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2006

With the Wine Blight laying waste to her vineyards, France went from 8:1 exporter in 1870 to 6:1 importer in 1887. Legions of wine farmers faced total financial ruin. With no cure - or even a proper diagnosis - in sight, many saw no option but to flee to lands not yet affected.

The influx of institutional knowledge that flooded into former backwater wine regions like Rioja catapulted them into relevance, and soon matured into a world-class standard. The farmers had found respite, but couldn't run forever. By the time Phylloxera crossed the Pyrenees, however, there would be new ways to fight back.

French botanist Jules-Emile Planchon had a theory. If the blight was caused by a microscopic American insect as he suspected, perhaps grafted European varieties on American rootstock would be resistant. This would be confirmed by Missouri entomologist Charles Riley, and with millions of rootstocks supplied by Texas horticulturalist T.V. Munson, the Wine Blight was soon in remission.

Piastraia Bolgheri 2015

Youth is apparent in this lovely wine. Well rounded body for this super Tuscan. Red fruit are dominate, with smoother tannins. The acidity is still a little high for my liking but cellar time should cure that — 5 months ago
