Côtes du Rhône Viognier 2019

Star bright gold. White flowers and honeyed stone fruit on the nose and fleshy, full-bodied palate. Lengthy, layered finish adds anise and white pepper. Medium acidity; somewhat higher than what you’d get in the New World. It checks all of the white Rhône boxes — complexity, body, aromatics — and does so with aplomb. The Viognier to drink when you don’t want to spring for Condrieu. Drink by 2024. — 4 days ago

Hermitage Syrah 2013

Bright ruby center and violets on the rim. Medium viscosity. On the nose, I found ripe cherries, blueberries and hints of blackberry followed by smoky meat, spices and finally some mineral tones. Multilayered aromas and obvious complexity coming through. On the palate, confirmed these and also picked up bacon and chocolate’y tones. Tannins were very much there, but in balance with acidity and alcohol. Finish was long and savory. Outstanding Syrah that will continue to get better over the next 5-10 years. — 2 months ago

Sonate Extra Brut Champagne 2011

There was just a suggestion of Selosse that comes to mind when tasting this; and when I say this, I'm thinking about that complex interplay of ripeness, oxidation, and oak in these wines. In typical Selosse fashion, I believe this cuvée will roll some eyes too in a blind, for better or worse. Rich autolytic and oxidative notes, gentle oak, along with ripe savory Pinot fruit, balanced by searing acidity and flinty minerality - what we have here is a deliciously intriguing wine. Notably, no ladybug in sight despite the vintage. — 5 months ago

a Fleury La RiviereBrut Rose Champagne

an amazing champagne of craftsmen. Unfiltered with a remarkable symptomatic deposit of living wines. Greedy nose tangerine and peach, white Porto or Madeira notes, a touch of bitter orange. The palate is very digestible and suggests respectful vinification with little sulfur; it is a real wine that can be enjoyed on its own as well as as an accompaniment to petit four, fish, and even a dessert with orange or tangerine. — 5 months ago
