Domaine Rietsch

Demoiselle Alsace Gewürztraminer 2016

wow! wow! lots of litchi, pear, chamomile and just smells like a spice shop in the middle east... beautiful light caramelized orange colour, low viscousity, racy in the mouth, good but low acid and finishes on a hint of bitterns..kind of an IPA finish :)... crazy to believe it that this is gewürztraminer!!! — 2 days ago

Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2013

Open-ish and enjoyable, but so many years away from fullness. What comes across as richness now should moderate a bit over the next decade to allow the more savory/olive-y/herbal layers to own their own space. Check back. — 8 days ago

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2014

9.3

Very quiet nose off the bat. Faint minerality. Palate is alive, stunning and well though. Concentrated, powerful and complex. So sappy and dense with wonderful structure, sap and richness. Juicy and long with such intensity. Really really pure. This punches way above its weight. — 11 days ago

Domaine Bechtold

Süssenberg Riesling 2013

The Fall Confrerie St Etienne dinner highlighting Alsatian whites alongside French and Napa reds. A delightful evening!

Here is your petrol! Could smell it a table away. The residual sugar in this had to be low. Very balanced. Compared to the gewurztraminer we had tonight, this wasn’t sweet in any way. Light and refreshing.

Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2015

Lyle Fass
9.1

First time trying this. Gorgeous nose. Mint, berries, such pure Syrah fruit, really nice. Palate is deep and pure. Sappy and juicy. Really clean. Granite, minerals. Balance is great. Sneaky length. Great stuff. 2015 Crozes is awesome. — 3 days ago

Domaine Jamet

Côte Brune Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2011

I'm a believer now. This wine is extraordinary. Explosive nose with all sorts of wild flowers berries and cola. With time and a little coaxing a earthy, olive, and smokey core coated in lavender emerges. Tremendous length and massive layers of flavor — 9 days ago

Domaine Faury

Saint Joseph Syrah 2014

Beautiful white pepper, slightly floral/violet/soapy, crunchy-not-sweet fruit, moderate tannins, light to medium body. Unmistakably old world Syrah. Doesn't have the depth or persistence of the great St. Jo's or the richness of the good ones in a great year, but very nice and a great value play, if a but geeky. — a day ago

Domaine Joly

Vieilles Vignes Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay

Nose of white flowers, herbs, aubépine, toasted bread, lime. Quite complex but not that awesome. The palate is more interesting with lemon, butter, with fruits , a very long acid backbone and a long finish with lots of minerality . Good not great — 15 hours ago

Domaine Drouhin

Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2014

One of the very best. Some bottle age has helped tame the primary fruit, but plenty of structure persists to balance the dark cherry & summer red berry notes. Drouhin continues to make some of my favorite wine from Oregon every vintage. Beautiful stuff. — 8 days ago
