Do Ferreiro

Cepas Vellas Rías Baixas Albariño do Ferreiro 2019

Fabulous bottling. Singular exemplar of what albariño can do at the highest level. Tightrope between grassy, herbaceous Sauvignon blanc opening & smoky Riesling finish. Reminds you why albariño was thought to be a Riesling clone. Zippy acid, lime, smoky apple fruit, fabulous texture and long penetrating finish. 200 y/o vines. 😍 — 10 days ago

Gamache Vintners

Nicolas Red Blend 2009

Blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc and 13% Merlot, sourced from the Gamache and Champoux vineyards. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits, floral and pronounced cigar box spice, aged in 100% new French oak. On the palate flavors of ripe raspberry and blackberry with cedar and spice. Fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit, oak and spice. Drink now, no further aging benefit! — 13 hours ago

Clos de la Coulée de Serrant Savennières Chenin Blanc 2004

Tasting machine 3oz pour. Deep orange copper color, tired mid-palate but just after swallow the finish explodes. Strange yet appealing — 10 days ago

Les Reversées Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Du fruit rouge à revendre qui se retrouve en bouche aussi, une acidité appuyée avec des tannins qui ont une texture de bouche très approchable, c’est frais, généreux, sérieux et délicieux. 91-92

Gorgeous red fruit on the nose and palate, generous wine with an acidity that is high but brings freshness and such a nice silky texture on the slightly grippy tannins, simply beautiful.

Rouge-Gorge Coteaux Du Loir Pineau d'Aunis

Love love as always! Is this my favorite vintage for this wine? Maybe not. Does it taste a little less Pineau d’aunis-ey than usual? Probably. But I’m splitting hairs here. Awesome wine that I bet will age well — 7 days ago
