Another Wednesday Wine Committee in the books. Great hosting by @Bill Makens . 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine all served blind.
Potential for this to increase in score over the next 5-7yrs. Very similar to the Saint Aubin burgundy before it, but slightly more reductive. Grilled poached pear, wet rock, lemon honey and honeysuckle dominate, with ripping acidity powering this wine to the finish. Hold and enjoy in a few years. — a month ago
From 375. Gorgeous nose has lifted spicy blackberry, a note of warm, moist gravel, and wood smoke. Still youthfully structured, but displaying great balance and very pure fruit and a nice, restrained minerally note. The finish is all brambly Zin. — 2 months ago
1996 half bottle. Still vibrant and delicious. Saddle leather nose. Old wine sweetness. — 17 hours ago
Green gold and lemon sour....not much nose but then the tart mid-palate and sharp acid finish roll in and bring the wine some serious gravitas. I love the “old world” aspect of this green apple/not-quite ripe pear tinged wine.No noticeable oak and a long, grippy finish. — 2 months ago
