Fuji Takasago Brewery

Big Cork Vineyards

Maryland Chardonnay 2016

This RESERVE offering was opened at 6yrs old and has proven Dave Collins is an east coast premier winemaker. He has overseen the complete development of those 60+ acres and understands how to elevate what the terroir gives. This extended aged Chardonnay had all the class and finesse of an aged burgundy. Beautiful crème brûlée, Fuji apple, and a touch of poached pear on the palate with tremendous mouth feel and an elegant extended finish. I have had some losers in my aging library project, but this was a clear walk off home run! — 4 months ago

Shindo Brewery

Gasanryu-Gokugetsu Junmai Daiginjo Sake

Clear, filtered- served cold in a box. This sake won a National New Sake Contest, squeezed from Dewasansan rice. Fuji apple, rose, grapes, and plump blue berries. What an interesting sake! — 2 years ago

Domaine Antoine Jobard

Charmes Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2009

Hints of reduction at the start with Meyer lemon and pear fruit. With air the wine gains complexity with Anjou pear, Fuji apple and Meyer lemon accented by matchstick, hazelnut creme anglaise plus subtle minerality. Palate is a nice combo of pear and lemon fruit with almond and lees. Acidity is quite bright which helps balance the wines palate richness. Supple fruit and mineral finish with persistence. Seems to be a start of maturity with potential for the aromas to show further complexity. — a year ago

Louis-Benjamin Dagueneau

Blanc Fumé de Pouilly Sauvignon Blanc

Pale straw gold with silver highlights. Somewhat shy nose of underripe Fuji apple and Asian pear. Firm acidity leads the smoky/flinty light-bodied palate of underripe pome fruit and citrus rind. Remarkably long (8-9 secs) palate cleansing finish. Merciful saints! This is the entry level wine from the Dagueneau portfolio and it makes you want to go higher! Food is, of course, its friend, but if you’re into “sipping culture” this will work for you as well. Seafood (cooked or sushi) is a particularly fine pair, naturally. Drink now through 2027. — a year ago

Varnier-Fanniere

Cuvée Jean Fannière Origine Extra Brut Grand Cru Champagne Blend

Geeky and tasty.

Lovely nose. Expansive. Rich bit not vulgar. As it opens a savory element.

Delicious fruit. Fuji apples with crisp minerality. Hint of yummy iodine?

Finish has this lovely refined richness as this opens. Terrific.

As this open more almost like this fine non obnoxious sherry like finish. Spectacular.

Domaine de la Meuliere

Chablis Chardonnay 2019

A crisp bite of a Fuji apple with fresh minerality that is as nice with food as it was on its own. For a Chablis this is close to a Meursault! — a year ago
