Coeur de Roches Côte de Nuits-Villages Pinot Noir 2014

Brambles, soft ripe cherries, reassuring acidity and plenty of smoke make me think that this could go away for another 5. Some great layering here and 30quid all good. — 7 days ago

Brut Crèmant de Bourgogne

NV but 7 years vintage stored in owner’s curve. Quire rare Cremant. Toast flavor. Vintage taste. Elegant, also enough sour to feel freshness in Summer. @, Vansamble, 190814 — 4 days ago

Clos La Roquète Châteauneuf-du-Pape White Rhône Blend 2015

We had the 2015 Vintage on 8/3-4/19. This full bodied white is certainly different from our familiar California Chardonnay. It is a mix of Grenache blanc, Clairette, and Roussanne. Tastes of melon, apricot, honey and almond. — 13 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2014

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Pops Orchestra. Our Pops conductor Keith Lockhart is leading a live-to-picture performance of Star Wars: A New Hope, a showing of the classic 1977 film, with the Orchestra performing Mr. Williams’ iconic score.
For live-to-picture productions, the orchestra performs the entire movie score in real time as the film unspools. (Vocals, dialogue and effects are isolated from the original music track.)
Generally we get to hear Star Wars scores a couple times per season here at Tanglewood, but tonight we get a chance to hear them with the backdrop of the movie (Episode IV) that launched a franchise, to say the least!

I celebrated another full trip around the sun, since my coming into this world, earlier this week. Tonight my wife, some dear friends and me will be enjoying some enticing wines along with our movie night. So notes...maybe, but I'll try!

Arbois Trousseau 2015

9.3

Gorgeous nose of cherries, first floor, spice, very high toned and bright yet sinewy. Wonderful nose. As it opens there is dust and spice up the wazoo. So good. Terrific inner mouth aromas and energy. Opulent and rich as this is 2015 but super fresh and precise with wonderful texture and depth. Superb example of a warm vintage Trousseau with none of the bad warm vintage stuff. — 23 days ago

Piedlong Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2013

Beautiful ripe strawberries and vanilla on the nose that is somewhat pastry like. Black pepper and tilled soil fill it out.

Yummy ripe, red fruit: strawberry and cherry for days. Black pepper and black tea with garrigue flavors follow through. The acidity is bright for this style with firm but well integrated tannin.

Such pure, ripe fruit that is so tasty, but not over extracted. The spice components add intriguing complexity. Quite nice to drink on its own.
