Les Saint-Georges Vieilles Vignes Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1999

17.5. Decanted. Still, even better second day. Big wine, on nose and palate. Great fruit, not showing much age 21 years on. — 2 months ago

Virage Vineyards

Napa Valley Cabernet Franc Merlot 2007

Plummy and curranty fruit with a little spice, its modest weight and ripeness make it friendly and approachable but with subtle depth reminiscent of 1989 La Dominique. Very well done. — 22 days ago

New producer to me, but heard of the unfortunate effect the fires had for them. Good idea to buy some and support.

Château Le Sèpe Sauvignon Muscadelle 2018

2018 vintage. Serious white Bordeaux with an uncommonly high Muscadelle percentage (15%), blended with mainly Sauvignon Blanc and a bit of Sauvignon Gris. — 7 days ago

Beaune Vieilles Vignes Pinot Noir

J. Kim

Hint of smokey rubberiness that sometimes afflicts many of Laurent’s wines. But it is loaded with a material and holding back a lot in reserve. Seems less fussy than before and purer and more transparent as well. — a month ago

C De Marin Les Vignes de Paradis Chasselas 2014

Alder Yarrow

Sepia filter courtesy of smoke filled skies here in Oakland. If the end of the world is coming we better get drinking. Let’s start with some regal Chasselas. Six years in the bottle this is starting to pick up some weight with hints of butterscotch on top of the lemongrass and citrus pith notes you’d expect from this stony little white. Quite delicious. — 2 months ago

Dominique Roger (Domaine du Carrou)

Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Nice complex sauvignon expressing tertiary aromas still keeping varietals.
Balanced mouthful and good acidity. Recommended

Grande Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Pinot Noir 1999

1999 vintage. A taste graciously provided by Mr. Bill Bender. Still packing a punch. Nicely balanced with tons of fruit and lengthy finish. Possibly at the top of the bell curve. — a month ago

Mr. Bill strike me as a devil’s advocate/contrarian. Red Burgs and Rhônes along with other lascivious, earthy offerings strike me as your safe place from the ungodly, innumerable Cali Cabs since 1993. For those about to rock, I salute you.
