Château Corton Grancey Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2005

9.2

This one started out with lean fruits and a fair amount of dry earth. But, after two hours in the decanter, put on weight, body thickened with creamy texture, dark currants, dark chocolate, soft baking spices with soft minerality, moist forest floor earthiness and withering dark flowers. Ended well with our dessert of dark chocolate and strawberries.

Thank you Christina for sharing this Grand Cru Burgundy with us.

I see you needed to also open Corton tonight, and best me by one vintage. 🤦‍♂️

This was part of last nights dinner with friends. Certainly had no thought of upstaging you or anyone. ✌️

We'll never upstage each other, but I'm having Affogato now and I'm in heaven.

Rosé Vintage Champagne Blend 2012

Happy Valentine’s Day! This is a copper beauty - need to open and warm up but then revealed brightness - citrus more than red fruit, slight brioche then limestone - the nose is big and round. The palette is expansive - just so full, some cherry and malo, then grapefruit, red fruit, with some flowers in the background, I can’t believe how balanced this is. Can almost smell the oak. The finish is long, starts with an acidic bite and mellows with the fruit slowly fading away. Wow. — 8 days ago

Le Pauillac de Chateau Latour Red Bordeaux Blend 1970

Very Latour with a solid core of fruit and still has tannins to resolve. This is what aged first growth should be. Better with more time in the glass. Fun to drink with good friends. From Magnum 🍷🍷 — 3 days ago

Domaine Gagey Le Clou D'Orge Ladoix Chardonnay 2012

Nose has flinty pineapple, ripe mango, moist light oak and white flowers.
Palate has warm stone fruit mash, incredible passion fruit mousse, chalky-ripe yellow peach, light on the acidity, but incredibly long finish.
Solid wine but the acidity of the 2013 version (previously posted) is missing. 😐

Photos from our visit to Jadot from the Spring of 2018, the red wine barrel room packed full-full-full of 2017's, the ceiling of their fermentation room of all wood structure with massive/beautiful spans, the wood vats used for initial processing of new red fruit and our bottle of the evening. I wish we could have tasted any vintage of this wine when we visited, but alas it didn't make it into our lineup.

Vin de Pays des Côteaux de l'Ardèche Chardonnay 2016

Easy drinking Chardonnay. Citrus notes on the palate with a bit of creaminess that complements seafood in cream sauces. Great with salmon & shrimp in a Cajun sauce or shrimp Alfredo. — 3 days ago
