Les Rouillères Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2017

Delicous red for a summer day. Ripe fruit to start, strong tobacco and acidity with mild tannins to finish. Very easy to drink with good length. — 20 days ago

Billecart-Salmon

Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart Brut Champagne Blend 2002

The 2002 Billecart-Salmon ‘"Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart" Brut Champagne (WWB, 95) which has a massive mouthfeel and glorious texture right now. This vintage is just thrilling to enjoy right now, made from 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay and resting for ten years on the lees. A bright beam of salinity falls over the limestone driven terroir, as Pink Lady Apple, kumquat zest and cinnamon infused sourdough bread flavors collide with minerals and the unctuous texture on the mouth. Generous, showing glorious length now at nearly the twenty year mark, this gorgeous bottling will have a long life ahead of it. Drink 2020-2035- 95 — 9 days ago

Mauvais Temps de l'Aveyron Red Blend 2018

An absolutely wonderful wine, intense without being overbearing, elegant yet with incredible structure. Plush and perfumed without being blowsy. This wine walks the line with such assured balance with its herbal, earthy, yet ripe blue fruit dominated character. A natural beauty that isn’t flashy but could easily command any room with its assured delicacy. Pure to the Nth degree. I love it. — 8 days ago

Poured a glass for lunch, tight, put the rest back in the cellar for dinner. Glorious. Gorgeous aromatics, smells like a flower bouquet at a boucherie. Perfect combo of sappy dark fruit, savory olive/iron, granite/mineral. With air, much more pliable in the mouth, sexy, delicately detailed, very very fine. Shows impressive purity and a skilled touch in the cellar. Love. — 23 days ago

@Lyle Fass are you bringing this one in?

Alain Gras

Saint-Romain Pinot Noir 2016

Delicious wine, lot’s of red fruit, medium bodied and very balanced with good acidity and approachable tannins. Drank side to side with the 2017 and we preferred the 2016 at this stage.

Nez de fruits rouges surtout. La bouche est savoureuse, équilibrée, acidité vive et tannins fondus et veloutés, très bel équilibre. Dégusté sur deux jours avec le 2017 et nous avons préféré le 2016 légèrement. 90-91

So much weight and texture - I’m less familiar with Saint Amour, but this Gamay could almost be Cotes du Rhône. Lots of fruit, even better 2nd day - nice wine. — 19 days ago

En Remilly Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Shay A
9.3

My second time with this producer after having the 2015 Les Frionnes a few weeks ago. I find the two to be quite different and definitely preferred the En Remilly.

Aromatically, it shows caramel dipped Granny Smith apple, melon, pineapple, honeysuckle and a kiss of oak. Where it really differs from the Les Frionnes is the profile on the palate...much more texture and richness here. Classical chalk and limestone alongside more melon, underripe white peach, and the very end of the finish has a note of granulated brown sugar which is really unique (and enjoyable). It’s all wrapped in a nicely dense but quite lifted profile. The warmer it gets, the more honeyed it gets. I thought this was best just a tad warmer than cellar temp, and feel this would be a good bridge to white burgundy for those who enjoy quality US chards. Thanks to
@David T again for the intro to this producer!

@Shay A A great bottle, from a great vintage! I'm still holding this, and picked up the '17 last Fall.

Domaine Jean Chartron

Les Murgers des Dents de Chien Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Swoon. Even better than my last btl (after tasting at the domiane). On the nose, a soft reductive note, transitioning into smoky peach, apricot and a kiss of vanilla oak. On the palate, lovely acidity, a touch of grapefruit pith, tangerine, soft white pepper spice, fantastic density, velvety mouthfeel, and a spicy finish. Absolutely lovely. — 6 days ago

Domaine Jean-Claude Marsanne

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2012

Fruit is dominant here- mostly dark berries & red currants. It shows some savory character as it opens up with a note of smoke adding complexity. Structure is moderate, and the wine is generous and approachable. — 4 days ago
