Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay

This is one of my always wines, because I’m always going to buy it and I’m always going to drink it. Straight out of Chavot and Épernay comes this beautifully balanced Blanc de Blancs. One of the most crowd pleasing crowd pleasers I can remember tasting. A nervy Brut Nature that’s harsh in a that good way we all desire but not severe. A great amount of reserve wines used which enhances the whole show. Natural with superb tension and precision. Such an incredibly pure representation of Chardonnay and the terroir happening here.

Lemon zest, apples, and grapefruit initially on the somewhat restrained nose. Saline minerality and chalk is abundant with a bit of yeast. Citrus fruit takes over after plenty of air. The palate follows the nose with elderberry and pears on the tongue. Almond slivers and subtle spice. This is one of my favorite wines, one that is endlessly pleasing and interesting. Drink up.

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2019

Dried cherries and leather on the nose give way to lush strawberries and rose petals with a creamy finish. Seems medium bodied so not a powerful wine but excellently made. — 7 days ago

Ultradition Brut Champagne Blend

Shay A
9.2

I’ve had quite a few Laherte Freres champagnes (love the Les Grande Crayeres and the Les Beaudiers rosé), but just recently finally tried this Ultradition. Disgorged 6/2020.

As expected due to Aurelien’s love of the varietal, this is 60 meunier, 30 Chardonnay and 10 Pinot noir. 40% reserves utilized, and 6-8g dosage. For me, meunier has this distinct “gummy” note…like fruit snacks, and plenty of apple. Pours bright yellow in the glass. Aromas of apple crumble pie, golden delicious apple, hint of yeast, and grilled lemon. Rich on the palate but not overly so. Cardamom, more baked apple, honey and limestone at the finish. A little bit here for everyone.

Torrette Petit Rouge Blend 2019

A welcoming nose is something I appreciate. Fresh red cherries, rose petals, and milk chocolate. The mouth is lucid and saline, youthful and vibrant. Minerals and sour cherry, soil, and mushrooms. — 3 days ago

The Beaux Frères Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Tasty. Fruit here is a tad sweeter than most Burgundies. 14.1% abv. Reminds me a bit of the 2018 Drouhin 1er Clos des Mouches, I had recently in France. — 4 days ago

Domaine des Tourettes Hermitage Syrah 2017

Ordered off the Sazon list in Santa Fe. Deep rich color with a warm inviting nose. Silky and smooth. Notes of sweet fruit, slate stone, some menthol. Good acidity and structure, but the fruit is what’s notable tonight. Great juice. — a month ago

I had the Ultradition Brut last night. Love the meunier character in it.
