Les Cras Macon La Roche-Vineuse Chardonnay 2015

2021/5/7-9 with meunière of shitabirame, etc. A totally different thing from the straight Roche Vineuse - initially there’s a fair bit of oak but with time and air it integrates nicely. There’s citrus, white flowers, buttered toast, and some cool stones. The palate balances tangy acidity and savor. I’d love to see how this continues to evolve. — 3 days ago

Emilio Lustau

Almacenista Manuel Cuevas Jurado Manzanilla Pasada de Sanlucar Jerez-Xérès-Sherry 1896

Despite it’s relative delicacy, a coastal old boat varnish appears on the nose. Hints at caramel( dry), and maybe ripe plantains.
Light on the palate, dry, with a honeyed finish. A nice package, a bit short on the finish.

Macon La Roche Vineuse Chardonnay 2017

2021/5/6-8 with meunière of shitabirame, etc. There’s a nice cooling character to this - it’s light on its feet, not too dense. Lemony fruit with tangy acidity and some lurking stony minerals. — 4 days ago

Nuits-Saint-Georges Pinot Noir 2014

Beautiful light sparkly Burgh, perfect for roast chicken/poultry. Evokes cherries both in color and palate. — 4 days ago

Domaine Olivier Guyot

Clos St. Denis Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2008

Pop and pour, notes from 2 hrs open. On the nose: black tea, pomegranate, bitter herbs, sandalwood, a touch of spice. On the palate: fantastic acidity, good density, more black tea, pomegranate, black currant, and intensely drying tannin. For my palate, this is at peak: the tannin seems destined to outlive the fruit. Fantastic now. — 11 days ago

En Valingrain Rosé des Riceys 2014

What a color. So distinctive and ridiculously good. Cool climate fruit part of the spectrum, sour cherry, red plum and wild strawberry, blood orange, some blue and purple berries too, meeting with herbal stemmy whole cluster kind of stuff, flowers and game and chalk. Makes me wish I had a whole case but sadly only one bottle — a month ago
