@Shawn R Yes! Étienne sat directly across from my wife at our chapitre dinner at Clos de Vougeot in 2018, an experience of a lifetime, yet he is a quiet chap.

A very tasty bottle! Crimson color with raspberry jam, rosehips, red currant and berry scone. Very fruity and yeasty. Satisfying mineral finish. Course bead. Stellar budget bubbles. — 5 days ago

Drop dead nose. Just sick. Amazing chocolate covered cherries, huge minerals, massive florals, heavenly nose. Layered and so so fine. Just stunningly pure. Decadent yet ephemeral. Palate has no hard edges. So juicy, elegant and pure with just awesome fruit. Balanced and so fresh. Energetic and has that same decadent yet ethereal fruit on the palate. What an amazing wine. It’s got tangy fruit and a lot of it. Concentrated and so lithe. Such flavor intensity. All red cherries and sweet strawberry. — 5 days ago

Nose of red berries, flowery and with a touch of pepper. The palate is elegantly juicy, lots of freshness for this medium bodied wine that has a certain depth and good balance, served just slightly chilled during this heat wave and this wine delivered once again and was such a pleasure to drink. 90 pts in this context.


Nez de baies rouges, floral et avec une touche de poivre. Une bouche juteuse, du fruit frais et élégant, avec une certaine puissance en bouche, bien équilibré et complet, mais un vin de soif servi rafraîchi en ce temps de canicule qui s’est bu avec beaucoup de plaisir. 89-90

Mr. Ed makes an appearance right out of the gates. But there is also mineral. Deep red cherries. Lipstick like intensity. Mint, menthol. Really wafting stuff. The horse blends and just becomes a component of a dizzying array of aromas. Lapalu always a thrill. Palate is rich and vibrant with tangy freshness and loads of early season cherry and good acids. Ripe and substantial tannins. Closed a bit on the very long and mineral driven finish. A nice hit of opulence as well. Crazy raw materials here but as this is Lapalu this will need hours to come together. But it’s all there. — 9 days ago

Savory almost meaty nose with red fruits, hint of vanilla. The palate strikes you with tart cherries, mouth watering acidity leads to a medium+ finish. Good structure. Awesome stuff. — 23 days ago

Crémant d'Alsace Brut Rosé Blend

I might not know it was rosé if blind tasted and I might not mind. But it DOES have that berry thing. Barely but just enough. It is cherry-berry it is mineral it is just fun. And white peaches and salt. And thyme. Hmm. It’s someone to hang out with when you need a friend also when that friend needs to...be food friendly and if your friends don’t like food I’d be concerned. — 11 days ago
