So tasty. Reminds me of the grape flavoured sweets. Had it at Ester. — a month ago
Presented double-blind. Wine pours a deep ruby and slightly turbid; slight staining of the tears. On the nose, bruised strawberry, some cedar notes, olive brine, cranberry and dried green herbs. On the palate, the wine is bright with mostly red fruits. There’s a slight prick to the tongue. The wine is dry with medium+ acid, medium tannin. Thought it was from Burgundy. Called 2017 Bourgognon Rouge. Dufaitre is making some really enjoyable wines. — 11 days ago

Savart’s most limited production Champagne made from 100% old vine Pinot Noir with a mere ~400 bottles produced. Visually, I continue to double take at this wine as it barely appears Rosé. It’s intensely perfumed, floral and deeply aromatic, with a precise, taut and linear palate that screams purity and and elegance. A very singular, vinous and most importantly delicious Rosé Champagne that there will never be enough of! ☺️ — 15 days ago

Paired to a slow & low baked beef tenderloin with roasted root vegetables, several hours of low temperature patience required for a reward of a beautiful beef (Kinderhook Farm; Valatie, NY) roast at ~135°F. — 7 days ago
