Pierre Péters

l'Étonnat Monsieur Victor Edition MK.09 Champagne Blend

MK09, the first release of this fabulous Cuvée, aged 6 years on natural cork and disgorged in 2015, is totally in the zone right now. So great to have snagged off the Cut DC wine list to start the night. Ripeness, freshness, oxidative complexity, a complete Champagne. It flaunts intense aromas of toasted hazelnut, apple pie and baking spice with a creamy and rounded palate that is both pure and chiseled and layered with minerality. A fantastic Champagne. — 3 days ago

Dom Ruinart Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2007

Belatedly celebrating @Deked1’s special day with his favorite bottle of bubbles! 🥂🥂

This wine was disgorged in 2017 after aging on the lees in Ruinart’s chalk cellars for a decade. It’s spent the last 5 years in the bottle.

With a pale gold hue, this wine is showing some delicious signs of age, but also remains incredibly vibrant.

It offers a fine mousse with rich notes of lemon curd, flint, hazelnut, marzipan, toast, and brioche. Yas!! 👏🏻 It’s so darn good. We don’t want this bottle to end.

I’m English by birth, so July 4th is not a good look for us. I’ll be keeping a very low profile on that day 🥲

Correaux Vieilles Vignes Bourgogne Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Pinot-Noir (66%) and gamay (34%) blend, both gourmet and sophisticated. The nose, marked by aging, evokes Burgundy by its toasted-cherry-vertical side, while the gamay would recall Beaujolais on strawberry-vegetable, jovial, floral and peppery notes. It's accessible, crunchy, with chew (not or little filtered) it pinote on a wide arotic range. The approach of a real friendly wine, with a solid final.

Assemblage Pinot-Noir (66%) et gamay (34%) à la fois gourmand et sophistiqué. Le nez, marqué par l’élevage évoque la Bourgogne par son côté toasté-cerise-vertical, alors que le gamay rappellerait le Beaujolais sur des notes fraises-végétal, jovial, floral et poivré. C’est accessible, croquant, avec de la mache (pas ou peu filtré) ça pinote sur une gamme arotique étendue. L’abord d’un vrai vin de copain, avec une finale plus que sérieuse.

Pierre Sparr

Grande Réserve Alsace Riesling 2019

This wine I had the other night is the 2019 Pierre Sparr Grande Réserve Riesling. From Alsace - Beblenheim, France.

On the nose there is citrus, lemon, bicycle tire, pear, green apple, vanilla and minerality.

On the palate there is lemon, lime, peach, green apple, golden delicious apple and good minerality.

This wine is light to medium body smooth and creamy mouthfeel with medium + to high mouthwatering acidity that leads right to a long citrus apple mineral finish. Please have a healthy and safe holiday weekend. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

When I first opened this I thought it was a bit thin. This sucker has woken up and it is amazing. I would chill this a bit next time but damn it is so good. Even has a bit or earthiness to go along with the cranberry fruit. — 6 days ago

Jérome Coessens

Largillier Blanc de Noirs Brut Champagne Pinot Noir 2015

Talk about a singular expression of Pinot Noir. A pale gold coloring with effusive creaminess and a nice stream of very small bubbles. The aromas are a bit muted upon opening with just a bit of apple goodness to start the show. But let it sit for a while in a larger bowl and you’ll be rewarded. Warm cinnamon and crusty bread. Roasted nuts and blackberries all day long. There’s some fresh cherry and plenty salinity to boot.

Single vintage, single varietal, single vineyard. The hallmark of Jerome Coessens. 100% Pinot Noir from the lieu-dit of Largillier. The fruit hails from the plots that he has dubbed Fruit and Flower and that’s amazingly accurate. The amount of yellow fruit and floral notes are just ethereal in nature. The acidity borders on “racy” but instead settles on “zippy” which is just fine.

The attack is one that is quite pointed and full of finesse. It’s a very generous champagne that grows by leaps and bounds over time in the glass. An abundance of red and yellow fruits along with black pepper and dried herbs. Very fruity on the long finish with an added kick of spice. Singular and gorgeous.
