Nose full of brett. The orange to end all oranges. They were worried it’d be too funky for us! — 7 months ago

The best orange wine that exists

Marcel Lapierre

Morgon Gamay 2021

It was fondue night so let’s drink some Beaujolais! This is my second time enjoying the 2021 Lapierre Morgan “S” and the first was enjoyed over the course of several days. With that first experience, there was positive evolution until the last glass. This time, I chose to pour into a decanter several hours prior to dinner. No formal notes but this exhibits a beautiful bouquet of raspberries, strawberries, pink flowers, herbs, stone minerals, and just a touch funky…reminding you of Lapierre’s natural sensibilities. Structure is medium…though acid kinda creeps up into the medium+ category. A wonderful pairing with fondue made with a 50/50 of Gruyère/Raclette and served in the Swiss style. Drink now with an extended decant or enjoy through 2031. — 8 days ago

Dinavolino Romagna Malvasia di Candida Blend

Ok please don’t like this yet. This needs to be fixed. Funky town for sure. I would say Parmesan cheese. Soon more….Really crazy stuff! Well Kombucha, like quite acidic and astringent, buttery, nose, Muskat - orange blossoms. So much fun but obviously you have to be crazy to ask for this and drink it - even the staff at the restaurant hesitated. — 8 months ago

Love this funky oxidized white; white wine with this bottle age is a nice treat. I’ve had it from this producer only once before, in SF from K&L. It was also on the Schloss Schauenstein wine list. $95 at Redbird with DY. — 5 months ago

SP68 Bianco Terre Siciliane Albanello Muscat of Alexandria 2015

The problem with SP68 bianco is that you always drink it young, just few months after arrival. And then you start dreaming about it somewhere in between seasons, when it's no available anymore. But luckily, there are folks who stored a bunch of 2015! Clean style orange, not funky anymore. Chamomile, amber, quince, baked peach, sunflower oil, subtle hints of VA, pickles (like in old Burgundy), tea and citrus peel. Quite fresh, well balanced, good tannin, medium+ body. It certainly lacks acidity.
