La Champine 2015

Dried herbs de Provence, black currant, some leather and black soil on the nose. Plum acidity, flavors matching the nose and peppery spice opens up the more it sits. Some lactic and vanilla comes out as well. Spice plus refreshing plus having depth. — 16 days ago

Domaine Michel Cheveau

Les Champs Grilles Saint-Amour Gamay 2016

Haven’t had much (any?) Saint Amour before so not sure how it typically compares to other Cru Beaujolais. But this one at least is redolent with violets, tangy raspberry, cherries, blackberries, dried herbs and earth, with maybe a slight charred quality on the finish although that may just be the power of suggestion from the name of the lieu dit. Satin smooth, Burgundian texture — 7 days ago

Apollonis Théodorine Brut Rosé

Had on New Year’s Eve. Raspberry, strawberries, slight toastiness. Grower champagne disgorged June 2018. Great value. — 20 days ago

Butteaux Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Personally, I need a wine paired for cooking as much as for eating! And chile, a hot kitchen is made for Chablis. Broke out a young, focused, ripe lemon and chalky goodness — 4 days ago

California Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

This should be their Cab Sav. Nice mouth feel, dry, with dark fruit and a little tobacco. Gift from my SIL for Christmas. Enjoying with a nice spicy taco soup and some football. — 4 days ago

Vendanges Sélectionnées Volnay Pinot Noir 2003

And this is why I love Lafarge. From a hot vintage, this is a restrained, balanced and elegant wine. Great fruit and plenty of acidity. — 15 days ago
