Bonnes Mares Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2001

I picked this bottle up and put it down trying to decide if tonight was a special-enough occasion. In the end, glad I leaned this way. Perfectly mature, and better past btl from a bit over a year ago. Helped to warm up a couple of degrees above cellar temp. On the nose: damp earth, floral perfume, touch of brown sugar, black raspberry, tea leaves, asian spice...a panoply of flavors. On the palate, lovely acidity, tart cherry, great density, hi-toned wild strawberry, mineral notes, sea salt..fantastic complexity. Tannin still showing grip on the finish, but this is perfect aged red burg for my palate. — 17 days ago

Champerrier Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2015

16.5/20 (90/100) Ягодный аромат с нотами вишни, малины, клубники, жимолости и ванили. Умеренная тельность и довольно высокая кислотность. Мягкие танины. Свежее и яркое, вполне готово уже сейчас, но потенциал к выдержке тоже есть. — 24 days ago

Mégaphone Ventoux Grenache Syrah 2018

Raspberry, blackberry on the nose. A bit of freshly tilled soil. Damp autumn leaves.

Full body, light spice - maybe white pepper. A touch acidic. Quite smooth overall, almost like a Pinot but with much more body and flavor. Very fresh red overall.

Cuvée Frédéric Emile 375eme Anniversaire Alsace Riesling 2001

my God, this is even better than it was before. The 375 refers to the years Trimbach has existed. I imagine the 2026 version will be a great celebration of 400 years. Lemon, peach, apricot all texturally bound in a wonderful package, still with great acidity and drive, it’s a stunning FE that for me is neck and neck with Clos Ste. Hune in 2001. No rush to open if you have it but it’s great now. — 3 days ago

L' Accomplie Premier Cru Extra Brut Vieilles Vignes Champagne Blend

Though not the same as it was pre-COVID -19, a handful of us were able to gather (while keeping our distance) to celebrate being back together and opened some fun wines to share. Wine is always better with good company.

One of two champagnes for the evening (the other being a Cédric Bouchard Val Villane, which I posted about a few weeks ago). A producer I’m semi familiar with. Rich and dense aromatics in that oxidative style, but it’s more fruit driven than I expected. Some yeast, good bit of chalk and limestone. Bruised pear, caramel dipped golden delicious apple and apple strudel too. Acidity was mellow and it toed the line of champagne and still wine. A champagne I’d like to try again. Thanks

Le Mont Benoit Vieilles Vignes Villers Aux Noeuds 1er Cru Extra Brut Champagne Blend 2015

Last of the 4 bottles heat damaged from shipper. However, this bottle wasn’t as much cooked as it was just simply not showing as the winemaker intended due to the heat damage. The wine lacked a bit of persistence, depth and length, but was still plenty energetic and powerful, showing baked apple (probably should have been fresh apple), a touch of oxidative notes (no surprise), ruby red grapefruit, orange peel, red flowers and hints of ocean spray. Really very good even so, but could have been even better. — 9 days ago

A lot going on the nose. Red fruit, black fruit, meat, leather. Would be a good wintertime wine. Too bad they’re sold out at Kermit Lynch. Devin gave it 💯 — 3 days ago
