Les Roses Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2010

Roses in the aromas and on the palate. Wonderful earthy notes, currants, kirsch, and iodine, too. Well appointed. With some time, the wine took on a vegetal note like a Loire cab franc. Not a drawback at all. — 12 days ago

Sous Le Puits Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay

Star bright yellow gold. Nose of baked quince and balsam. Full-bodied palate of baked quince, balsam, and a bit of white pepper. Backbone of medium plus acidity supports it all. Fish? White sauce? Roasted fowl? Pork tenderloin? It’ll work with them all. Kick things up a notch, too. Age will be its friend. — a day ago

Brut Collection Champagne Blend

Tasted this about 1 1/2 ago, distributor indicated a new batch, some lots underwent malolactic conversion enhancing flavor & weight. 40/40/20 blend, Pinot Meunier-20%. Founded in 1776, Reims France, rare family owned company, still managed by Roederer family. In 1833, Louis Roederer inherited company his uncle & renamed company under his namesake. Fresh fruit aromas, nice mousse, rapid bubbles, citrus & toasty apple flavors, crisp & refreshing, lingering ending with lemon, smoke & yeasty mineral notes. — 4 days ago

Cristal Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blend 2002

Pale light yellow gold. Lively constant tiny bubbles. Deep round nose with high pitched fruit. Notes of pear, grapefruit, chalk and limestone. With more air you find some citrus and honeysuckle. Chewy in the mouth with great mouthfeel. Coats the entire mouth. Long finish lingers a minute or more. Velvet. Killer juice. Was inspired to open one of these after seeing a friend’s TN this weekend. Glad I did. — 4 days ago

Les Noces Blanches Chardonnay

9.2

Another visit to the weekly Wednesday Wine Committee, and a wonderful hosting by Glenn. As always, all wines are tasted blind. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert.

Never heard of this producer and the clear bottle threw me off, though I did guess non vintage champagne. There was a lot of green Apple tart and chalky limestone. Very little yeast. Got more savory as it opened. Really enjoyed it.
