Cuvée Louise Brut Champagne Blend 2004

This took time to open when it did I leaned towards aged grand cru burgundy as the bubbles were fine and faded fast. Intense power and creaminess as it unfolded. Lots of acid that made this drink well with almost every dish.

Diane de Belgrave

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Final meal in Paris. I had read about Anthony Bourdain liking this place because of its simplicity and perfectly cooked meat. (Apparently one of his favorites in Paris). Great meal to close our week in Paris, especially if you like fire grilled meat as much as we do.

The Diane de Belgrade was a textbook Bordeaux. I liked it even more after a bit of time in the glass. This wine is also a reminder that even simple bottles can be amazing. @Robert et Louise in Le Marais.

As you should! A well executed steak grabs your mind and doesn't let go until you find the next best version.

Clos De La Tech

Domaine Lois Louise Cote Sud Pinot Noir 2017

2017 vintage. Medium-heavy body. Dark color. Rhubarby, plummy nose. Muscular with a consistent palate fill and push the entire show. No dropoff anywhere. Not as delicate as I’d like but this is the best domestic Pinot I’ve had in a while. Holy bleep. 1.10.24. — 5 months ago

New name to me. Stemmy? Lean?

@Shay A Not lean and maybe some stem inclusion but not obvious/overt. Big body w/o fruit bomb status. Low production but if you can find online or retail (don’t think it’s avail retail), would likely clock in around $90-$100.
