Flavorful Rhône red blend (Syrah and Grenache) with medium acid and tannin, at the Explorateur Restaurant in Boston — 2 days ago
Nose so good you wish your lungs had an exit so you could inhale nonstop.
Palate. Dense. Almost sticky. Unctuous. Great fruit. Sweet fruit. Almost tropical. Honey. Clings to the palate. Very well made.
At 3 hours almost like this sherry like butteriness. Not oxidized but the controlled richness. Becoming godlike epic level insane.
Nose is nutty

. Apparently different from the Cuvée du Reserve though little info available online - after going to check, staff in the store where I bought it (which was also selling the Cuvée du Reserve for substantially less, and the Oubliee for substantially more) told me this is 100% reserve wine as opposed to 50% for the Cuvée du Reserve but didn’t seem too sure.
Overall it did have nice stuffing but next I’m curious to try it next to the standard version — 5 days ago
Black fruit and garrigue are obvious right off the bat. Long, lingering finish that reminds me why I love this style of wine. — 9 days ago
First and youngest champagne of my champ/crab open house. A blast of tight, crisp minerality that almost vibrates with acidity. Such fun to sip, such a sin to drink so young. Amazing complexity, vibrant tiny mousse. A real bargain and a harbinger of the greatness of the 2012 vintage. — 5 days ago
The 2018 is out! The 2018 is out! On the downside, the price went up $5 to $25. On the plus side this is the best in several vintages so stock up! Lots of lush cherry fruit backed up by tar, mushroom, and leather. Just fantastic. As an aside, this is one of my favorite go-to wines and one of the best values out there each year hands down. But the low ratings just baffle me. Rate the wine quality my friends, not whether the wine is your thing. — 6 days ago
This bottle completely delivers according to expectations. A Meursault Villages which could compete easily with other more famous parcels and producers. The hype around Boisson Vadot is completely logic. Reminds me of Coche Dury but as they work closely together this again is logic. Big wine which will age well. Beautiful ! — 2 days ago
