Brut Champagne Blend

Wow. Give this a few years in the cellar and you’re in for a treat. Plenty of buttery popcorn, green apple and nutty aromas- citrus in the mouth and finishes with a savory wave. Great value blanc de blanc for under $40. — 3 days ago

Salmon rolls plus salmon colored sparkling equals the best most refreshing swim upstream. Yum yum yum. Should be New Years but it’s a Sunday!
Strawberry shortcake sparkles. Love this bottle of lilting joy. Perfect sashimi marriage partner.

Fleurie Gamay 2010

Oh my oh my! Sure, it ain’t no Grand Cru, but for me this is just about a perfect everyday drinking bottle. Surprisingly bright fruit for a 10 year old Gamay (blackberry and cherry,) with a solid well balanced structure which keeps things just barely on the side of light and easy, yet almost tips over into deeply philosophical. I love me my Foillard! — 11 days ago

Cuvée Jean Sirven Fitou Carignan Blend 2009

Great surprise to find this wine in the far end of my cellar and to discover that it is so good. Totally unexpected. Abundant in fruit, needs decanting, still super young. Did not know a Fitou could be so nice. — 8 days ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Hermitage Syrah 1983

Tawny with reddish amber rims. Dark yet translucent. Great old Chave nose. Black cherry, wet forest floor, smoked meats, menthol, slate stone and rhubarb notes. Vibrant in the mouth right out of the gate. Lots of structure and pucker. Fruit present but starting to fade. This was at peak first two hours and then started slowing down, opposite of the Trimbach CSH next to it. Still this was really good ~37 yr old grape juice. — 2 days ago
