Initial Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

For most growers it would be thé summum for Selosse it is the start. There is champagne and then there is selosse champagne, nothing compares. — 3 days ago

Domaine Jean-Jacques Girard

Les Narbantons Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Nose is cherry perfume. Mellow but gorgeous.

Palate is cherry and cherry lipstick. Fresh. Juicy, delicious. Hint of cherry licorice.

Giraffe is a model of consistency. Never a bad bottle.

As this opens more gods cherry density. Wow.

Cuvée Les Berangères Arbois Trousseau 2014

Sadly the last commercial vintage from the “pope of Arbois.” (I guess “Puff Daddy” was already taken). Excited to try some of the newer releases from Domaine du Pelican who acquired a lot of Puffeney’s holdings. As for this wine, it’s exceptionally beautiful and I’m just going to enjoy it rather than pick it apart. Elegant, vivacious, soulful, just really captivating and only gaining in intensity with time in the glass. — 24 days ago

Wow a 9.5 from Mr Perlman. No joke. Might have to try to find some.

@Pooneet Kant I’m planning on ordering a couple more tomorrow. Got this from Crush so maybe they have more. If you try it open a bit in advance as it needs more air than you’d think

Ultreia Saint Jacques Bierzo Mencía 2017

Ripe black fruit and a subtle earthy note. Beautiful silky mouthfeel and easy tannins make this super drinkable. This suited grilled chicken thighs perfectly. Great value. — 2 days ago

Clos du Roi 1er Cru Beaune Pinot Noir 2014

9.3

Nose starts out a bit funky, but the horsiness blows off and you have cooling sour cherry, soil tones, mineral, moss, good aroma but it needs to open. Palate is gorgeous. Elegant, textured and so fine. Super juicy and clean, stunningly pure. Long. Lovely elegant structure. Good depth and lovey sappy fruit. Clean as a whistle and impressively pure. — 9 days ago

Clos de la Maréchale Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Decanted 2 hours before drinking. Deep and structured with both a rich and sappy mouthfeel. Creamy cassis, black cherries, hints of earth and rich tannins with a lingering finish. Drinks wonderful now but has superb aging potential. — 3 days ago

Musigny Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2001

Tasted blind. Reddish tawny, looks younger than the other reds served before it. Notes of ripe bing cherries, iron, earth, rhubarb and some raspberries. Rich and round in the mouth. Very refined, very pure expression. Guessed 95 Dugat Charmes Chambertin. I liked this as much as any of the other bottles today. Great wine. 96+ — 2 days ago

The ultra rare Tete de Cuvée of Jacques Lassaigne that is aged in barrels for cognac and old Ganevat Vin Jaune. Intense and expressive showing caramelized golden apples, crushed salted almonds and a chalky minerality. Finishes long and with excellent precision. — 20 days ago
