Plum jam, ripe blackberries, and slate notes on the nose. Super fruit forward, light tannins, and smooth finish. There's a lingering dark side there, like sun-dried tomatoes. A decent wine for a great price. $6 at Plum Market — 7 days ago
What a wine. Best one get. Dynamite nose of mid to late season red and black cherries. Floral, cocoa dust. Huge stoney minerality. Palate is dazzlingly fresh and so so pure. Amazing texture and sweet fruit with super tiny berry intensity and awesome juiciness. Dazzling wine. So so fresh and flavorful with unreal depth. What a wine. Terrific inner mouth aromas. — 20 days ago
100% Regent. That weird, alluring and usually crappy red German grape. But Max, the genius, makes it shine. Huge, expansive nose. Like wow. Earthy. Giant berry fruit. Mostly black. Pastille. Huge perfume. Not subtle but awesome. Cherry cough syrup. This shit is wild. Like the name says. Palate is dynamite. Explosive red fruits and just awesome freshness. So pure and insane acidity matched with dark, rich blackberry fruit. Sappy and fresh. Wonderful minerality. So so long. Pure and balanced. Fantastic. — 2 months ago
Killer stuff. Nose of lemon and mineral. A bit cold out of the gates. Palate is dynamite. Precise and energetic. Rich and ample with terrific energy and spine. Great structure. This is a terrific site for red and white Monthelie. Chewy, dense and super pure. Awesome texture and so juicy.
This got much better overnight. 9.2 to 9.3. More integrated and sappy. — 2 months ago
Needed 1 hour to shake off some stuff then a gorgeous bottle. Red cherries, spice and super mineral. Palate is so juicy and energetic. Dynamite sappy fruit. So damn pure and so much linearity. Straight as an arrow. Lovely tangy acidity and so so fresh. What length. What a value. Terrific lift and very mineral finish with cranberry and other berries. Fine tannins. What a wine. — 2 months ago

What a delightful expression of Sangiovese from a difficult vintage. Nose reveals notes of red cherry, cranberry, pomegranate and red raspberry fruit tied to lovely loam and spice tones. Palate is juicy if a bit high toned with lovely red fruit flavors, a noble austerity and resolved tannins. Finish has lift and a dynamite bitter red cherry hint wrapped in spice. Appears to be at or is close to its peak but I imagine it will hold here for 5 to 7 more years. — 3 months ago
