Gossamer Cellars

Nicolas Bazan

Haydee Pinot Noir 2010

Graceful #yamhillcarlton #oregon #pinotnoir. For a 12 year-old Pinot, first day impression was it drank quite young. Second day the age shows a bit more with some initial oxidative funk that melts away revealing a still youthful and lithe core. Alluring Burgundian nose with layers of cherry, limestone, forest floor, kola nut, faint white mushroom. Throughly enjoyable palate with pleasingly plush texture, energetic acidity, sweet tobacco and long pepper on the finish. Gossamer tannins build on the palate after the inevitable repeated sips - this feels like a QPR benchmark for Oregon Pinots. — 2 months ago

Liaison Pinot Noir 2019

Lyle Fass
9.4

The legendary 2019. A stunning bottle. Nose starts out quiet but one can tell it’s all there. Rose petals. Vivid mid season cherry. Spices galore. Haunting. Ethereal. Classic Liaison. It opens up every 30 seconds or so aromatically. Wow. Nose is a 9.6. This is the best one since 15. Palate is so juicy, so lithe, so elegant and full of gorgeous and vivid sweet cherry fruit. A gossamer like texture as par the course. Tree bark, orange rind now on the nose. Tannins start to come in something fierce after around 15 minutes but they will add fruit as it airs. What a wine. Closest Liaison to the GC’s I’ve ever had. — a year ago

Vincent Girardin

Les Vieilles Vignes Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2016

Sometimes you don’t need an excuse to open a bottle of #gevreychambertin. Vincent Girardin’s 2016 effort here is lovely. Decanted for 30+ minutes and tasting notes recorded over the next day as bottle opened up in wine fridge, sipping out of Burgundy glasses. Delicate aromas of cherry preserves, tobacco leaf and sandalwood. Plenty of weight on the palate, hints of licorice, cola nut, a wave of cherry and lingonberry with lush acidity on the finish and gossamer tannins trailing off into a mouth smacking long finish. Those dark fruit and tobacco notes plus the acidity paired well with wood fired turkey pepperoni pizza, believe it or not. It’s humbling to confirm the hundreds of years of hype are justified with the finer wines of #bourgogne.

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

2014 vintage. Already rocking and a-rolling splishing and a-splashing. No one does silk and gossamer elegance better. Only getting better in the near term and far beyond. 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 7% Cab Franc and 6% Petite Verdot. Always a top fave. — 9 months ago

Ma Danseuse Pinot Noir 2017

2017 vintage. Forest floor and raspberry nose. Light-bodied. That silky/gossamer texture/body with a correspondingly delicate, yet concentrated finish. More subtle than the vast majority of California pinots but no less delicious. — a year ago

Alsheimer Spätburgunder 2015

N: Rhubarb and dank, dark earth. Did anyone say Burg.? Leather, chocolate and some cinnamon. Red plums.
P: Initially very delicate, as it gains air, some more body comes out. Lots of fresh tilled earth, like cedar, gossamer,
forestall, very gently woodsy, nice and bright. A spätburgunder built for the summer. After an hour out, big black cherries really pop.
Thanks @DosageWines.

Pio Cesare

Ornato Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

stop everything, corner yourself, and plunge into this rutabaga, flocked titanium frame, licorice root, tarmac, damp earth, distant diesel, stewed tomato, crushed petal, oleander?, cherry meat, candied gossamer violet caravan. this juice is a vampiric traffic cop with crawdad pincers, it halts and releases you in a screaming fluorescent red vest with unregulated grip. surrender or die. — a year ago

Château Fleur Haut Gaussens

"La Bergeronnette" Bordeaux Supérieur Cabernet Franc 2016

Outstanding #cabernetfranc Bordeaux Superior recommended by the sommelier at one of my favorite restaurants had us scrambling to search out the local importer/retailer. Fragrant, layered aromas, violets, underbrush, black/blue fruit - lovely acidity, nice fruit/earth balance, gossamer tannins and paired beautifully across our table from Wagyu-style steak to Lobster bisque in a puff pastry. — a year ago
