Today was an absolutely fantastic Friday hosting at the City Club by @Dan Fitzgerald . 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine. Served blind. Great job Dan!

What made this special was the fact that the host had kept this in his cellar for almost 10 years. Very different compared to release...less citrus driven. Balances oxidative and reductive. Hardly any bubbles. Toasty, flint and nougat driven, but also honeyed and slightly caramelized.

Clos de Malte Santenay Chardonnay 2011

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this afternoon with the Boston Pops Orchestra. Our conductors are David Newman and John Williams are leading a diverse program of cinematic works composed by John Williams entitled "Across The Stars: Music Of John Williams". We'll enjoy pieces from Star Wars (various episodes), Harry Potter, E.T., Memoirs of a Geisha and many others. All works to feature the violin virtuoso, Anne-Sophie Mutter, a personal favorite soloist of ours on these hallowed grounds. Mr. Williams has rearranged many of the selections today to better feature Ms. Mutter, an exciting afternoon will lay ahead. 🎼🎻

A nicely aging monopole Chardonnay, loving the lightly oxidized yellow fruits.

Nose has oxidized, yellow apple skin peel, papaya and medium oak more notable today than prior bottles, albeit not distracting but embracing.

Palate has creamy, tropical fruits, over-ripe lemon and light minerality.

Just an exceptional bottle, likely the best of all the 'Clos de Malte' 2011's we've enjoyed to date.

Here in LA there are usually a few John Williams conducted Hollywood Bowl performances each summer—I haven’t been in years but you’re reminding me I need to go! So many light sabers, so little time...

Cristal Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blend 2009

The 2009 'Cristal' is a completely stunning Champagne which impresses with its polish, complexity, weight and silky mousse. The brightness is wonderful with intense lemon zest and kumquat aromatics that all mingle in the glass. The soft mousse and bright effervescence really impresses. The freshness of the wine also shows beautifully on the mid-palate, displaying not only good weight but intense orchard fruits that mingle with the wet stone, and high-toned citrus zest accents. I love the silky mouthfeel that adds to the wonderful experience. This is settling in after some time after release. Drink 2019-2035- 95 — 11 days ago

Pouilly-Fuissé Chardonnay 2017

Poor mans white burgundy with restrained peach and oak flavours. A whiff of light caramel and vanilla on the nose. A pleasant white to drink now or up to 5 years. — 2 days ago

Domaine Gagey Le Clou D'Orge Ladoix Chardonnay 2015

A one year departed check in since our last bottle.

Nose has buttered pineapple, ripe mango, toasted bread, ripe plantain and white flowers.

Palate has buttery ripe peach, over-ripe pineapple and a touch of flinty minerality. Medium acidity. Overall lacking some concentration that will come together with longer aging.

This wine should be ready for 93-95 points in 2021-23, all the pieces are there, just youthful today.

Decanted ~3 hours.
