Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2019

Love Puligny and this is elegant. Bright, crisp with abundant acidity but delicately layered on the pallet. Great producer. Cheers. — 3 days ago

Billecart-Salmon

Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart Brut Champagne Blend 2006

Off golden color with oh so many fine little bubbles. Absolutely intoxicating aromas bursting out of the glass. Fine cheese, green apples, and boysenberry immediately followed by a whiff of violets. Gingerbread and almonds with a nice shock of grapefruit. This is ridiculous, it just keeps going. A little chalk and yeast with a bit of sage.

From a selection of Grand and Premier Cru areas in the Côte des Blancs, Montagne de Reims, and Vallée de la Marne and aged over ten years on lees. This is a superb standard bearer of Grand Marque vintage champagne year in and year out. Almost perfect structure and balance and all is in harmony here. 60/40 Pinot Noir/Chardonnay mostly vinified in steel tanks with a small amount done in oak. Disgorged in June of 2019.

Grace and elegance with a sturdy backbone. A bit closed in initially but given some time really opens up nicely. Cherries and pineapples with honey butter. Herbs and citrus with oak. Roasted nuts on the long, powerful finish. You already know you want this so there’s not much else I can say except, you’re right.

Domaine François Raveneau

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2002

Light gold color. Killer Chablis nose comes on after 3 hours of air. Notes of apricot, wet river stone, citrus, honey, white Kimmeridgian clay, sea shells, and tan spice. Has nicely developed secondary notes, and this is just starting to hit its stride. Rich and powerful. I think with about 5 more years the 2002 Raveneaus will start hitting their mark in a big way. — a day ago
