Just a phenomenal nose. Wow. Perfect, and so deep. 4D cherries. Black, red, perfect cherries. So deep. Endless cherries. High toned and dark at the same time. Totally amazing. Wow. This is genius. Haunting earth and stoniness. This nose is a 10.0. Just insane. Totally mindblowing. The detail and depth is unreal. Best nose of the 2020 Brissets. The nose smells like GC Vosne-Romanee. Such a special site. Juicy and so dense but bright as well. So sweet and fresh. This just has a tiny berry juicy explosiveness. Sappy and pure and such lift. Finishes so mineral. Wow that opulence in the midpalate leads to unreal juicy fruit on the finish that is so bright, energetic and lifted. Stunning length. The detailed black and red cherry fruit that is blended with the perfect level of opulence. Longest of all the 2020 Brisset reds. Wow. A profound wine of total genius. I am floored. The tannins are so fine, so well knit. so velvet. This will be a 10.0 with age. — 8 days ago

Château Moulin Saint-Georges

Saint Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Wow what an amazing buy. Complex nose, classic but complex. Right bank stunner. Cedar, truffle, cassis, olive tapenade , slate, salt, with even an iron complement. Quite structured with amazing tannins still rounding out the fruit. Dark berries, blueberries , ripe blackberries, great tannins to give this wine the structure it needs to keep on aging. Great now, would love to try again in another 5 years. 14.5% — 5 days ago

Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

1.5+hr decant. Dark red color with hints of rust and purple. Lovely nose of dark cherries and cedar, which is the highlight. Great texture but restrained and thinning. Starts out like a nice Bordeaux then turns into a classic Napa Cab then becomes very average mid palate. So much promise but doesn’t deliver. Needs more depth and flavor. As the wife said, very nice but probably a ~$50 bottle not an ~$85+. — 14 days ago

Château de l'Engarran

Quetton Saint Georges Syrah Blend 2014

Unique! PnP’d. Dark red color. Lovely texture. Medium depth but lacked discernible characteristics. Better with food but very reserved. Not sure what to make of this. Maybe air would help? — 2 days ago

Brut Réserve Champagne Blend

Light gold with orange rim. Very expressive pinot character, concentrated but almost extracted. Good in its category — 2 days ago

Les Saint-Georges Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Ruby with aromas of red and black fruits and complex spice. On the palate, flavors of layered fruit, ripe black cherry and raspberry with cedar, tobacco, herbs and nutty notes. Full soft tannins, balanced juicy acidity, long ending with fruit and earthy character. Outstanding! Wait on this a bit! — 19 days ago

Les Tuyaux Nuits Saint Georges Pinot Noir 2019

This was volatile and unpleasant on opening, but changed dramatically and really opened up with an hour in a decanter. Blackberry and black cherry, warm earth, mineral, ripe but beautifully balanced, silky tannin 😋 — 12 days ago
