Ultreia Saint Jacques Bierzo Mencía 2018

Dam that’s pretty serious wine for $24. 13.5% Old vine Mencia. Loamy mineral. Blackberry. Raspberry. Chalky tannin. Best enjoyed while screaming obscenities at the dumbass POTUS on TV. Yes I’m drinking at 3pm on a Tuesday. — 4 days ago

Morgon Gamay 2009

Intense redfruits, mineral, still some tannin, doesn’t seem overripe like some 2009s I’ve had, nice balance, excellent length, should keep 5+ more years, so silky and pure, 13% ABV. — 14 days ago

Kudos, don't see many folks posting Morgon of this age, but fully agree it's well worth it.

@Severn Goodwin, I bought this and (I think) the 2011 from K&L on half-price closeouts. Very Burgundian style, it’s aging very slowly!

Saint-Aubin Pinot Noir 2016

9.2

I adore the wild character of this wine. Unreal spice on the nose, soppy cherries, soupy but so clean, mineral, tree bark, some sous bois. Palate is ripe, juicy and fresh. Terrific acids and so so pure. Clean. Juicy and slippery. Loads of red cherry and black cherry fruit. Elegant tannins. Long finish. Charmingly rustic. Awesome freshness and the nose is super expressive. — 24 days ago

Cornas AOC Syrah 2017

Lyle Fass
9.5

This is very very good. Nose has granite, hint of brett, but it’s very well integrated and adds to the allure. Perfumed spices and some dark flowers along with gorgeous red berry fruit. Palate is sweet, silky and so finesse driven. Almost delicate for a Cornas. Concentrated and dazzlingly pure with deft precision and unreal length. Sleek, suave and so well made. Energetic and so fresh with lovely granite on the finish. Super. Might be a 9.5. I’ll be back.

Another 9.5 Cornas after Mega air. Just texturally stunning. Poor man’s Allemand. So sultry. Huge concentration and depth. Stunning purity.

The new Bourgogne Rouge from JJ Morel. Beautiful cherries, spice, lovely ripeness. Very inviting. Brown sugar. So good. So Morel. Palate is full of fruit, some charming rusticity, slatey tannins. Terrific amplitude and energy. So fresh. Juicy like nothing else. Long finish. Love this wine. Only two vintages. 17 and 18. — 22 days ago

Cuvée de l'Elegance Saint-Peray White Rhone Blend 2018

Lyle Fass
9.3

Gorgeous nose. Peanut butter, tropical fruits, minerals, yellow fruits, very high toned and has great breadth. Very elegant, very elegant, wow, superb airiness and also some classic St. Peray richness. Clean as whistle. So fresh and so clean. Juicy like nothing else and such intense flavor impact. Deep structure, very good acidity and freshness and finished almost tannic, with savory and salty hints. Superb. — 24 days ago
