Le Clousot Arbois Trousseau 2017

Raspberries, bell peppers, spice and quite a bit of brett, at least in this bottle. Chewy tannins, fine acid and concentration. Nice.

Even better on day 2. Wish I had another bottle for a few years from now.

Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2017

Why not my favorite vintage so far, I feel this carries the warmth well. Rich and ripe without pushing the limits too much. The extra SY and MO components lend themselves well and this has some flash and darkness that bring a wild side to it all. Ive found some ‘17s to have significant brett but I think this balances well. Tannins are ripe but could use some more time to integrate a touch and soften their chew. Ripe black cherry compote, Chambord, roasted plums, animal, sweet spice and clovey layers of brett. 60 GR 20 SY 18 MO 2 CIN — 16 days ago

Bio Tradition Morgon Gamay 2017

The Coronavirus does not prevent us from tasting a few good bottles, the proof: This delicious Morgon in Biodynamics. Medium-bodied with subtle notes of peonies, roses, wilted flowers ... Magnificent delicacy. Beware of the dishes you serve with, it is really a delicate wine, which will quickly be denatured by foods with too marked a taste. Could spend 2/3 years in the cellar — 21 days ago

thank you Peter, this is an opportunity to do things that we are not used to doing. Prepare yourself, it will risk going through all the countries.
