Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus Grèves Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1996

Pours a dark crimson with no noticeable bricking or faded meniscus. Starts off with a clear menthol scent that thankfully receded. What emerges is wonderfully complex aromas. Layers of flavors and aromas emerge. Black cherry, pine needles, slightly smoky and herbal. This has structure for days. The acidity has always been prominent in this wine but it's finally starting to integrate. Tannins are firm but not intruding. What a wine and a joy to drink. I will drink my 2 remaining bottles in the next 5 yrs. — 10 days ago

Les Clos Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2019

Notes of green apple, fresh cream, and that characteristic Kimmeridgian chalk that makes Chablis unique. Those flavors carry over into the mouth which has a perfect balance of light creaminess, acidity, and fruit. Bit of fresh-cut pineapple on the tongue. Very long, exquisite finish. — 17 days ago

Domaine de Beaurenard (Paul Coulon et Fils)

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2017

Blend of 66% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, and the rest a mix of permitted varieties, Medium Ruby with aromas of ripe black fruits and earthy pepper spice. On the palate complex rich flavors of cherry and blackberry, with oak, leather, cacao and earthy spice. Full body, well balanced, fine tannins, long finish, perfect now but will last another decade. Outstanding! — 10 days ago

Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils

Cuvée De Mon Aïeul Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

One of Usseglio’s top cuvées, Mon Aïeul (“my granddad”) is 100% Grenache from some of the estate’s oldest vines (about 85 years of age) in La Crau, La Guigasse and Les Grandes Serres lieux-dits – each with a different type of soil.

Situated on an elevated plateau to the east of the village, La Crau is perhaps Châteauneuf’s most famous cru, known for its distinctive “galets roulés”, large, rounded river stones deposited here by the Rhône millions of years ago. To the south of the village, Les Grandes Serres is a very warm site on gravelly alluvial soils (and the source of the estate’s biggest wine, the 18% ABV “Not for You”). La Guigasse, on the other hand, is a cooler, sandier site with hardly any galets located on the northeastern part of the appellation, near the famous Pignan and Rayas lieux-dits (Chateau Rayas)

Mostly unoaked, it was brought up in concrete vats, with 15-20% in demi-muids. Ruby red color. Intensely perfumed, with notes of red and dark fruit (strawberry, raspberry), licorice and herbs. Full-bodied, rich, opulent and concentrated. Ripe fruit (cherry) and white pepper, smooth and creamy on the palate. Long, velvety, quite tannic finish. Hedonistic wine.
