Dont drink the last two bottles, note to self! Another zelig of whites, so much development to go but is drinking prettily now. Still young w much snappy apple-ness, encased in a yeasty & mineral pearl. Had w mussels in saki & parsley, & simply sauteed trout. Yum — 5 days ago
Efter Cheval Blanc 61 slogs rekordet om äldsta vin jag druckit omgående. Halvtorr gudagåva serverat till några ostbitar. Syran är spänstig, frukten är koncentrerad. Konserverade päron, gula äpplen och nästan lite farinsocker — 2 days ago
I got this bottle at the Domaine last year. A chat with a super focused Nicolas Ragot in the middle of a super clean chai left me a great impression. The wine is showing precision and balance. The fruit comes out after a chew and gives a superb tone to after taste. Tasted on 2 days; drink or cellar #bestofgivry #1ercru — 6 days ago
I have waited a long time to understand, get & appreciate 'Demi sec'. This riveting example needs no excuses. A coming out with flair & panache. Totally oui ! — 2 days ago
This Vouvray is the Aretha Franklin of Vouvrays. Stately, sultry, larger than life, dammit if you won’t give it the respect it deserves then it’ll find a new man that will! Tasted it at the winery, because you always say yes when a winemaker asks if you want to taste something cool. — 23 days ago
Another great last minute gathering at the storage facility!
I love these older Alsatian wines! The intensity of the sweetness from this has been dialed back on the palate, even though the sweetness is still there aromatically. Beeswax, orange marmalade, lemon. At 20-yrs old, excellent body and acidity! I have a young one of these which means it needs to sleep for at least 12-15yrs. — 8 days ago
With Nicole at Gramercy Tavern. PERFECT WINEEE. — 12 days ago
Smells like a shop that only sells dried fragrant fruit on tiny hemp strings. The shop is playing “Gorecki, Symph #3”
The first flavor/band to hit my palette is “XTC: skylarking” a harmonious blend of red and blue fruits, subtle, yet always a new one after every sip.
This wraps up with a truly silky, smooth style, with a long, lingering flash of vanilla. “Prince: Purple rain” is what’s happening in my head at the moment..
Stunning Cab Franc blend..

A hearty, complex, generous Burgundy at its peak; ripe red fruit, floral, layers of tarragon and cinnamon, forest floor development; notes of meat, leather, and iron in the background. Vibrantly structured, tannins still offering some grip. Long finish — 8 days ago
