"Cuvée Corcelette" Morgon Gamay 2017

Simply one of the best corcelette I have had. Awesome at every step. Great length, great width, intoxicating nose, and superb finish. All along a bright juicy cherry and a real complexity are taking the stage by storm. Not far from a masterpiece. — 2 days ago

Le Rang du Merle Beaujolais-Villages Gamay 2011

Super floral! Needs a few hours (a day really) to come around but after that it’s all lilacs and dried roses with strawberries, cherries, dead leaves, green peppercorns, and wet earth. Drinking like a dream at the moment but not sure how much time the 2011 has left in it. I would drink now or soon. — 3 days ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Hermitage Syrah

Excellent Northern Rhône tasting through J.L. Chave’s 1989, 1990, 1999, 2004, 2009 Hermitage, as well as the 2014 St. Joseph. ‘90 and ‘09 were my noted favorites. — 2 days ago

Clos du Roy Marsannay Pinot Noir 2015

Earthy nose with bramble, sappy fruit, and perfumed lilac. Lean texture and Smokey finish. Approachable at a young age. Anyone new to burgundy would be in love - particularly with this nectar from a known lieu dit — a month ago

Fleurie Gamay 2015

No formal notes but gosh had I missed this! This is elite beaujolais wine crafting. Bright fruit, matter, nuances, in a nutshell life in the glass. With that Foillard touch that can't be mistaken. More of that ! — 2 days ago

Silver Thread

Doyle Fournier Vineyard Riesling 2016

Nose of honeysuckle and pears. Tart apple, pear and melon flavors with a hint of lime on the finish. A bit of RS. Lots of acidity, but not the big FLX minerality that is expected. No petrol aromas. Still well made and approachable. Great with spicy food. Solid and consistent producer. — 25 days ago

1er Cru- La petite Chapelle Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir

A lot of oak, fruit tannin, flowers, RIPE fruit. It has A LOT of everything. It works. This wine is really good, going to age for a REALLY long time. — 5 days ago

Morgon Gamay 2017

Second take on the 2017. No formal notes this time but more air for the wine. And this time it was much better. Everything that is cool with Foillard un an easy going wine which encourages sip after sip. Foillard is great. — 2 days ago

9.0

Today was my annual hosting of the Wednesday Wine Committee. There was 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert, all provided by me. Tasted blind, as always.

White number one. In comparison to other Alsatian Rieslings I enjoy, this was certainly more on the mellow side. Even after time in the glass, very little notes of petrol or limestone. This showed more like a SB or better yet, an older Alsatian Pinot Gris. Had some oily characteristics with grilled Meyer lemon and honeyed chalk, but certainly more restrained in style. Obviously of nice quality, I think this is just the style to be more friendly with pairings as it paired well with crab cakes.

Mâcon-Charnay Chardonnay 2017

Green apple and pear. Medium bodied, with a slightly saline and chalky finish that reminds me of oysters. Oysters I should have been having with it. Simple wine, by very nicely balanced. — 3 days ago
