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 — 9 days ago

Le Clousot Arbois Trousseau 2015

Great Jura to kick off Christmas - funky, earthy, peppery, and dried red berries - light but more tannin than expected — a month ago

Cornas Syrah 2006

Robe noire
Nez de pierre chaude et de réglisse un peu façon barolo
Bouche ample mais gardant de la fraîcheur et avec peu d alcool tanins encore un peu agressifs en finale mais l air métamorphose la finale

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 — 12 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. — 9 days ago

Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2011

Best bottle yet. Still not happy with the advanced golden color but it was finally punching in its weight class ! — 5 days ago
