Les Bruyères Chardonnay 2016

Struck match ✅ fruit ✅ acidity ✅ finish ✅ — 7 hours ago

Azelia

Barolo Nebbiolo 2003

Nose full of tar and ripe plum, veering to prune. Took an hour in the decanter to sort itself but then wonderfully balanced and layered. Black tea, darker plum, perfectly drying tannins to match the perfect, fatty short rib. I would drink up lest the drying tannins persist more as the fruit wanes. — 10 hours ago

Domaine François Raveneau

Butteaux Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay

Word on the street is Butteaux triumphs MDT in warm vintages. In comes Raveneau Butteaux 2005. It had a superb nose that made it hard to put down. Palate didn’t quite match, but Raveneau is always a pleasure to drink — 15 days ago

Mount Mary

Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2018

At the monthly Downs Club Committee Dinner. A treat to be tasting one of Australia’s best Chardonnays. Pale Lemon in colour. Modern Chardonnay winemaking on show. Notes of struck match sulphides together with ripe grapefruit and citrus. On the palate on the lean side, but with its youth it will fill out with age. A classy Chardonnay which ever way you cut it with a long future. 98 points from James Halliday. — 4 days ago

François Rousset-Martin

Cuvée du Professeur Sous-Roche Côtes du Jura Savagnin

Distinctive, toasty, nutty oxidative style with struck match and mineral rock for days. Hint of citrus for good measure. Excellent. — 2 days ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Farconnet Hermitage Syrah 2011

A Syrah/Shiraz night. Elegant smoke and hint of cigar tobacco on the nose. Great legs on this one. With mouthfeel to match. Well rounded and juicy with a hint of acidity on the finish - which goes on and on. A lovely supper for a cool spring evening. — 2 days ago

Les Sangliers Pinot Noir

A great wine, light character, paired it with Turkey and this was a perfect match. — 9 days ago

Schilling & Company

Excelsior Imperial Apple

It’s 95F outside, and it’s the end of the workweek. Does this can taste of heirloom cider apples, slightly sweet (no, call it “almost dry”) and kick ass at 8.5% alc/vol? Yes, yes indeed it does. Another superior cider from Schilling. Why can’t the national brands match this level of quality? Why indeed... — 10 days ago

"Cuvée Corcelette" Morgon Gamay 2017

Delicious and elegant. This wine was remarkable. I tasted it blind and had trouble placing it because it's structure and aromatic complexity didn't match with my fruit driven expectation of gamay. I've been drinking discount bojo. This was phenom. — 16 days ago
