Les Duresses Blanc Monthélie Chardonnay 2015

Enjoying a gifted Burgundy from a dear friend, she knows what my palate is like, and strategically chosen wisely to keep a smile on my face!

Struck flint, partially burnt wood, pear peel, dried lemon rind, cold yellow apple, fresh lemon zest, wet sandstone, medium acidity, long finish, very satisfying and not even 1er Cru but drinking like one tonight! Could hold easily another 3-5 years.

Les Borderies Chenin Blanc 2015

A bit muted on the nose but singing on the palate. A bit oxidized and yellow in a good way. A touch of RS. Tropical and funky. — a month ago

Arcane XVIII La Lune Syrah 2010

I think this is my first 100% Syrah from southern Rhône, and it really grew on me.
Slightly candied dark fruits balanced by a stream of medium yet vivid acidity. Peppery, herbal, and slightly floral. Mellow tannins.
Xavier Vignon has the formula to produce great Southern Rhône bottles at great price. And this is no exception, particularly considering the age of the bottle.
