Note : The Hugel family introduces us to its "Estate" wine meaning a harvest of their grapes and worked in tradition to create a wine of great quality. A golden color and a pleasant fruity nose. On the palate, a roundness and an explosion of knowledge typical of Alsace. You feel the body and the presence of the terroir. A beautiful length and a long finish focused on caramel, oil and citrus fruits.

Really an exceptional perfectly aged red burgundy from our favorite appellation. Had at Tour d’Argent in Paris - one of the best wine lists in the world. Crazy value for a wine this old, and really delicious. Very aromatic with dried red fruit and some definite secondary / tertiary notes. But palate is quite fresh - lots of acid and a hint of menthol. Well integrated tannins and very smooth and persistent finish. Excellent. — a day ago
Derek Brammer's Staff Selection, Fall 2014: “Often customers will ask me to recommend a full-bodied white wine Bouchard Pere & Fils was founded in 1731, and has aquired many prominent estates over the years. Today, Bouchard is the largest owner of premier and Grand Cru vineyards in the Cote d'Or, Burgundy's most famous area, and is one of the largest and most well known producers in France. This 100% Chardonnay is blended from some of their own vineyards and some from negociants in the region. Delicate aromas of apple, peach and pear arise from the glass with lovely floral touches to enhance the palate. Full-bodied, crisp, and clean, it strikes a nice balance between the minerality of the terrior and the acidity of the fruit. A perfect wine for fish, seafood and fowl dishes. Especially wonderful at Thanksgiving.”

Vintage 2009 consumed in October 2018.
Nice golden straw color. Quick bubbles.
A core nose of very ripe pears along with some nice tertiary aromas coming through. A little butterscotch and honeyed pastry.
Red delicious apple flavor and steely minerality. Somehow I kind of missed the Extra Brut designation on this. I typically prefer brut level sweetness, and I do feel that the bracing acidity in this wine would be better served by a little more dosage. But that's just my palate's opinion.
As this wine breathed a little, it became a little so-so for me. Slightly oxidized notes started to show through. Any subtle floral undertones were overwhelmed by a raw bread dough aroma. These are nitpicky observations, but hey, I have to be nitpicky on vintage Champagne.
A solid and tasty 90pts, but was hoping for a little more from this wine. — 3 days ago
Monthly WTF wine group. Special event this month as Ben provided all ‘80s Napa cabs. A few of us chipped in and provided some whites/bubbly.
Granny Smith Apple x1000. Didn’t pick up much yeast here, but I did get some chalky limestone. Really nice and much more enjoyable when ice cold. — 5 hours ago
Peanut brittle nose with a palate to match. Hints of yeasty bready salty toffee peanuts across the tongue. Pinot meunière dominates the grape profile giving this champagne distinction in the category of Christmas sparklers. However I could not imagine drinking more than a half toast of this. — 12 days ago
