Valmur Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2016

A beautiful nose of yellow orchard fruit, honeysuckle and a touch of sea shells and salin texture. The wine is rich, a nice roundness and slightly less crisp than the usual Droin style, but still with enough backbone and acidity to make it harmonious, balanced, classy, elegant and with a lingering delicious finish. Great bottle. Un nez magnifique sur les fruits jaunes, pêches et un petit côté chèvrefeuille et une touche de coquillage. La bouche est sur le même registre, un côté plus riche et ample que le style Droin habituel, mais non dénuée de colonne et d’acidité qui en font un ensemble harmonieux, frais, pur, équilibré et avec beaucoup de classe et une longueur impressionnante. 93 pts aisément — 7 days ago

Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Celebrating a great week with our first @paulhobbs. just stunning. Sweet tobacco and new leather on the nose. Tannins have mellowed to raspberries, soft cocoa, vanilla and spice notes. Long finish. Cheers! — 22 days ago

So much weight and texture - I’m less familiar with Saint Amour, but this Gamay could almost be Cotes du Rhône. Lots of fruit, even better 2nd day - nice wine. — 13 days ago

The Manga Girl Rosé of Pinot Noir 2019

Easily one of the best CA roses I’ve ever had (and at $25, without a doubt the best QPR). Absolutely terrific wine. — 16 days ago

Domaine Paul Pillot

Clos St. Jean Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Very nice nose with ripe Apple, a very saline nose and mouth as well, the acidity is very crisp, with a medium length finish. In a blind tasting, reminds me of a Chablis style wine, fairly high price for the quality.
Un nez de pommes assez mures avec une salinité qu’on retrouve en bouche aussi, qui est très vive, très riche mouillée, mais de longueur fort moyenne à ce prix. Pourrait penser facilement à un Chablis à l’aveugle.

Les Jumelles Côte-Rôtie Syrah 1961

Tasted blind. Amber tawny, not too thin. Northern Rhone nose, very exotic. More specifically you can guess Cote-Rotie on this wine just from the nose. Notes of black fruit, graphite, gravel and what my wife would say is dirty socks. Guessed 89 La Turque, which (looking back) is a complement to how well the 61 performed today. — 5 days ago

Very solid but definitely not better than some of our favorite offerings from Lynmar. On par with other favorites for the price though. — 3 days ago

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2017

Drinking US pinots this week. Paul Hobbs is a great pinot winemaker, and here, he has crafted an exquisite entry level Sonoma Pinot. Fresh raspberry, bing cherry, and dried berry flavors mingle with nutmeg and cinnamon. The tannins are sinewy but are balanced by the tart acidity which leaves you craving another sip. A joy to drink! 2017 vintage on Mar 23, 2020 — 24 days ago
