Entity Barossa Valley Shiraz 2019

Beautiful, voluptuous, bouquet of red fruit, wild flowers, with capsaicin on the tongue. I have a few more bottles of this. Paired nicely with grilled burgers from our local farm raised beef.

Côte de Nuits-Villages Pinot Noir

Very rich and plump. Tannins fully resolved. Ripe dark fruits and cinnamon on the nose. This was a bit disjointed upon opening but meshed together with a few hours of air. Wife tasted blind and simply proclaimed “this tastes expensive” so the Leroy signature is clearly strong on this one... — a month ago

Extra Brut Champagne Blend

Pale gold with minuscule bubbles and lush creaminess. The nose is a bit closed in at first but blossoms over time showcasing delicate white flowers, pears, and really nice apples. After more time passes, the nose begins to evolve with more than of smokiness and pepper. Lemons, limes, and strawberry and it ends with an intoxicating bit of honey. 3/4 Pinot Noir and the rest Chardonnay.

A grower from the Cotes Des Bar with very small production but insanely high quality. The terroir of Aube real speaks here and the low dosage of 4 g/l allows for that expression. Based of the 2017 vintage and disgorged in early 2020. It feels so youthful in the mouth and you just know this has many years to go.

Wonderfully harmonious despite the youthful nature of this champagne, it all comes together in the mouth. Crisp and round, the acidity is pleasingly bracing. More pears and honeyed apples all over this. Citrus fruits steal the show but the chalky minerality and savory notes are showstoppers as well. A beautiful champagne, one you won’t want to stop drinking. Stock up.

Les Cognaux Brut Nature Champagne Pinot Noir 2015

Disgorged oct 2018.
Dark straw color. Quite some mousse. What a difference a strawberry makes 😀. Agree with other tasters there is quite some apple in it (the ripe, bruised, October style of apple). Interesting nose with even some toasted wood, herbish in its style. Interesting glass of champagne with a lingering finish of over a minute.

Fleshy, ripe macerated cherries, savory herbs, marked depth for a Bourgogne. Perfect setting at Nepenthe in Big Sur with my daughter Riley on her last High School spring break. Happy Easter to all! — a month ago
