La Nuit Blanche

Domaine des Ardoisières

Argile Blanc Allobroges St. Pierre de Soucy Jacquère Blend 2017

Chablis like... delicious... long finish. Muted aroma but some clean green apple and pear. Lots of minerality on palate. Touch of strawberry on the nose? — 11 days ago

Les Preuses Grand Cru Chablis 2014

Great, great Chablis that is pretty early in its drinking window. I keep wanting this one to be ready but it’s not quite there yet. The stuff in the background lurking is really nice. — 2 days ago

Château de Laubade

Bas Armagnac Folle Blanche/Ugni Blanc/Colombard 2000

I am tasting the 2000 vintage. The first aroma I get is just oak, almost sterile, like an impeccably clean hardware store. Leaving the glass a few moments to give contact with air opens up softer aromas of nougat and plum. The taste is about exactly like that: oak in your face all at once to yield quickly to nougat candy, plum, and raisin, but letting the brandy sit in my mouth causes it to turn into lovely cigar tobacco flavors with milk chocolate. Slight hint of saffron-infused chocolate on the finish, but then it fades back into that really strong neutral wood as the finish lingers. Trying the 1998 vintage, less complex scent, clean spice and wood, much more mellow with the wood than the 2000. On the palette, honey and milk chocolate. Much more approachable and easy-drinking than the 2000. Trying the 1995, I get an explosion on the scent of molasses and perfectly balanced oak. There was also a fruitiness that took me a long time to identify, but it finally hit me. Have you ever had the mango custard that is served at some Indian restaurant lunch buffets? It’s like that. Rich, syrupy mouthfeel with taste of black molasses and maple syrup prevented from being cloying by the strong oak, which doesn’t overpower but gives exactly the structure and bite that it needs to do. The fruitiness in the palette is like canned fruit salad in syrup. This is really good! So much richer and more balanced than the 2000. — 9 days ago

Sherry-Lehmann Founder's Reserve Armagnac 1987

Amazingly smooth. Tony is in love with it. I wish for a bit more complexity but that’s a nit-pick. Hell of a cognac and an incredible deal. — 16 days ago
