Grotte di Sole Red Blend 2015

Black cherry herbs Nielluccio is the variety ( from the French island of Corsica ) but I guess it’s a clone of Sangiovese which makes sense when you taste this wine you could easily put this in a blind with Italian Sangiovese — 25 days ago

Simple, elegant burgundy meant for quaffing. — a month ago

La Pépée Arbois Pinot & Ploussard 2016

Very slightly effervescent, some jamminess, red raspberries and a faint minerality. — 11 days ago

Bas de Vauvry Rully Chardonnay 2016

This would be higher in a different vintage I think. The skills are on show- great oak integration and mlf/acid balance, it has that Rully freshness that you get from this sort of balance in the Jaffelins. All that's missing is fruit intensity. Hotter year, hotter wine. — a month ago

Les Côtes Cornas Syrah 2016

Subtle. Make sure to decant. Flavorful. Finish is almost non existent in a good way. Pretty psyched this is happening. — a month ago

Cristal Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blend 2008

The 2008 ‘Cristal’ Champagne is a magical effort from this storied vintage in Champagne. Roederer cellar master Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon has crafted a simply magnificent wine here. The nose is highly perfumed and very musty with earthy tones showing front and center. White truffle shavings and peat moss with egg yolk infused brioche and bright pear flavors fill this exotic nose. Streamlined throughout, there is a seamless quality to this wine. With racy acidity and a remarkable salinity the wine shines through on the palate delivering a delightful combination of serious weight and effervescence. Saline infused Japanese pear, marzipan, Marcona almond and kumquat flavors all delight the senses. Truly one of the best from this house that I’ve ever sampled, the 2008 ‘Cristal’ needs more time in the bottle to develop — that said, this wine is scintillating in its youth.

Toasty nose, slightly oxidative, brioche and so so inviting. Amazing nose. Nose leads you to it possibly showing older and oxidative notes but palate is fresh and super elegant. Complex and so so fine. Refined and juicy with superb minerality and toastiness. Outrageous. So sappy and juicy. So finesse. — a month ago
