Le Ban Saint-Aubin Pinot Noir 2014

Lyle Fass
9.4

Have not had since 2017! Knockout nose of mid season cherry fruit with lipstick like intensity. Superb spice and complexity. Really layered and wild but also restrained. Lovely earthy sous bois. It smells so authentic. Just an awesome nose. 9.4. Palate is awesome. Ripe and super juicy with awesome, sappy curly and wonderful freshness and purity. A knockout. Just terrific balance and such unreal fruit. Brilliant showing. Long and precise. This will open more. — 16 days ago

Les Pieds Sur Terre Les Trouillots Poulsard

Raspberry vinaigrette to raspberry sorbet, cran-boysenberry, white mushroom explosion; great nose! Freeze dried strawberry and powdery grape, but herbaceous plenty throughout, with allspice and oregano and sprigs of kitchen sink. Raspberry both dried and reduced bring home the long finish! .

Domaine Roulot

Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2014

Actually slightly disappointing for a (Roulot) '14. Drank alongside a '14 Wittmann Aulerde GG, and paired with a pasta with morel and green onion (light) cream sauce. Riper nose than I expected on a '14, with very, very soft noble reduction, but good minerality and lemon. In a very good place, but the Aulerde was the better pairing with the food by a longshot. Good density, but slightly thin on the finish. I think I preferred the '13 edition to this one... — 6 months ago

R. López de Heredia

Viña Tondonia Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2005

The famed #lopezdeheredia - Their 2008 release year matched the year we got married so we ordered this at a nice restaurant on our 13th anniversary. I asked the sommelier to cool it in an ice bucket a bit and so it took some time to open up in the glass. One of the best old school #rioja - subtle dark fruit, forest floor and distinct mushroom and truffle aromas on the nose. The biggest surprise for me on the palate was the incredible freshness and bracing acidity. Forest floor, leather and dark fruit as the backup chorus. This is still such a young wine. Delicious and versatile pairing wine - worked so well with a brined chicken breast with a puff pastry side stuffed with morel mushroom and lobster. — 6 months ago

Philosophy Winery & Vineyard

Virtuous Maryland Viognier 2020

2020. I really liked their initial Rosé last year, so it was a no-brainer to pick up their latest releases at the Old Westminster farmer’s market a few weeks ago. We added some roasted butternut squash cubes to our leftover morel and chicken fregola and this full-bodied Viognier paired great. — a month ago

Maison Champy (Domaine Champy)

Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1720

Smoked earth and truffle and seared beef, raspberry and blackberry with graphite and red cherry flex big terroir muscle showing baked poppyseed, roses, burnt rubber and a grain of mint, aromatically. Apocalyptic, ecstatically. Raspberry-cherry reduction with a rich cranberry tart, morel, smoked cherry and red currants, fig and allspice; endlessly transmogrifying into nuanced decadence. Amazing, seductive, bold.

Wittmann

Aulerde Großes Gewächs Riesling 2014

Oops, forgot I had this in April. Drank alongside a '14 Roulot Bourg Blanc, and paired with a pasta with morel and scallion (light) cream sauce, with some seared scallops on top. This was far and away the better pairing, but it was fun to contrast the two '14s. With the cream sauce, the perceived acidity was perfect for my palate, so an excellent showing, really showcasing the minerality and citrus. Yeah it's Tuesday, but many pandemic-related restrictions were eased today here in cali. What that actually means remains to be seen... — 6 months ago
