Beaujolais Villages Gamay 2019

So good. Initial smell took me to a gravel flower garden just after a brief rain. Also a bit of strawberry pie. Palate is just lovely with tons of cherry, pomegranate, strawberry, and more flowers and rock. Is this the most complex wine in the world, no, is it one of the most drinkable and enjoyable, yes. — 7 days ago

Thörnicher Ritsch Riesling Spätlese Feinherb 2019

Lyle Fass
9.5

Killer nose. Blast of lime. Big slate. So clean and masterful clarity. Herbs, peppermint. So clear. Fresh rain. Layered. Multidimensional. Superb. Palate has a huge blast of lime sweetness on a hyper elegant frame and then pump out intense mineral lime zestiness that builds on the finish and just lingers. Terrific complexity in the mid palate and what a finish. Massive structure and grip here. So serious. Long, palate staining finish. Great now. Greater down the road. This wine is epic as it gets for Feinherb. Such intensity. Grip. Such structure. Brilliant. 19 is the truth. After air this gets so filigreed and elegant. The real deal. — 18 days ago

Domaine Michel Gros

Nuits Saint Georges Pinot Noir 2006

The aroma of farm was very prevalent, but so was the red fruit and mushrooms. Get some epoisse and you will be right as rain. — a month ago

Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2005

Smells like the forest in France after a fresh rain. Slightly darker and riper red fruit than the younger burgundies I’ve tried. Herbs, wet stone, slight cinnamon, craisins, fresh cranberry, wild ripe strawberries and raspberries. Lots of minerality that finishes with red soil flavors. Surprisingly very acidic still, may be better in another 5 years — 18 days ago
