A white from Pierre Cotton is the new experimental album from the young gamay slinger. This, I assume, is mostly Chardonnay from the small plot he acquired not long ago.
So big, you can sniff a little heat from the alcohol. Round and creamy like almond butter hand lotion. The oak is neutral, the acid dialed down, folded right there into a little basket of fresh picked yellow apples, mint green melon, chamomile, and blooming jasmine.
Big ole white for a cold fall night. — 4 days ago
Bready, yeasty nose, superb minerality, so so deep. Insane minerals. So deep, so mineral, so elegant, so salty. So deep. So textured. What a finish. Super focused. Seems a bit young. This really will open. What a midpalate. Toastiness. Concentration and superb textures. Amazing lift. Salty finish. — 6 days ago
Happy Thanksgiving Eve! 🍁 🦃 🍽 🎃
On Thanksgiving Eve, I bake the Pumpkin Pie. Mine is done with clove which gives it better complexity and a deeper flavor. It’s the only one I’ll eat now.
Turkey is busy soaking in brine.
Beautiful nose of bruised apple and yeastiness.
The mousse is gorgeous with micro oxygenation. Bruised apple/Bosc pair, sea spray, beautiful mid volcanics, powdery chalkiness with amazing lively acidity & smartly polished.

Nose was super-candied cherry right out the gate and then got a little shyer with air. The cherry got a bit deeper and sultry, accompanied by a gorgeous and increasing moist gravelly earthiness and a bit of spice. Not heavy, but surprisingly extracted in the mouth, with a lot of tannin. Very savory and long, with a growing bitter note in the finish. Better with food than a solo sipper. — 10 days ago
My best bottle so far, with none of the oxidation present in some previous bottles. On the nose: soft lemon, honey, a touch of oatmeal. On the palate: fantastic acidity, lemon and apple, honey with a distinc mineral core, and a soft smoky character. Fantastic showing. — 5 days ago
Smoking good and drinking great! Very fresh, energetic, good cut and excellent definition. This has citrus fruit in abundance, with some floral notes and a kiss of honey on the finish. Hard to put this down, very attention-grabbing in that sense. All in all a solid value for this level of quality, as well. — 25 days ago
