Aÿ Grand Cru Fût De Chêne Brut Champagne Blend 2013

In magnum and brought back from France by a friend on a recent trip. Big and bold, yet with tons of elegance. Stone fruit, flowers, some salinity/umami, loooong finish. MV13 — 10 days ago

Henri Prudhon & Fils

Sur Gamay Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Nose has oxidized yellow apple, pineapple core, peach pit, lemon zest and older, wet oak.

Palate has day old pineapple slice, dried lemon peel, creamy butter, green banana peel, zingy acidity with nice sandstone-like minerals on the medium-long finish.

Seems quite advanced for a 2016 vintage, a nose and (sort of) palate of a wine 6+ years its senior. Our only bottle, likely we could get another, but at ~$50 it's not worth it to us. I did decant for about 90m, based on experience with other 2016 S-A wines, not sure if this was enough time for this bottle, but it is showing improvement with glass time.

At hour 3+ the semi-ripe, tropical fruits are finally making an entrance 👍

@Ira Schwartz 99s are terrific and I definitely agree with you on letting sleep Gouges as long as you can
Still with his 99s I have had alternate luck, plenty of faulty bottles too I mean
All the 05s are kind of asleep nowadays, I can't imagine a Gouges 05 drinking already at peak
I love his wines anyway
I reckon they are the best NSG and after a long haul they get the closest possible to a magnificent Barolo... I understand that might be very personal😜🙏
