Paired with Gazpacho and Fried Chicken with Honey, amazing. Vegetal enough to match the soup and bright enough to compliment the chicken & honey. — 2 days ago
Poured a little bit darker colored amber than I was expecting. Slight golden color to this one. The nose on this bottle is definitely more of a mango and peach. Entry with a nutty influence, mango, peach, melon influence as far as fruit goes. Definitely not on the acidic side. Bubbles do not appear to be microscopic...or large for that matter. Just....nice. I honestly think this one needs to sit another few years. — 22 days ago
Celebrating Bastille Day with the spring dinner of the Confrerie St Etienne of Alsace association. Wonderful menu and perfectly paired wines.
A unique blend...Pinot Blanc and muscat. The muscat was most noticeable on the nose and finish, showing some sharp, sweetened pear and honeycomb. The pinot Blanc was dominant on the front and mid palate with melon, honeysuckle and almond. — 7 days ago
Definitely not out of the drinking window as CellarTracker states. This one was GOOD. Popped by Dan towards the end. Very good BDN. Nose of strawberry with almost more of a walnut. The entry of this shows small to medium bubbles, great strawberry, watermelon and passionfruit. Not as creamy as I thought it was going to be, but this one is definitely showing a hint of age. Was still quite enjoyable. This and a 2009 Dom Perignon were the sparklers on the table and really were both quite good. — 15 days ago

I’ve said it before—don’t sleep on Michigan whites. This is another star from northern Michigan. Very light and pale color gives way to green apple and light pear flavors with a touch of lime. A touch of acidity gives it a crispness towards the back and it finished w a slight minerality combined w the lime citrus. Delicious. — a day ago
Just opening and decanting now, sticking with Burgundy again tonight. As it happens we had another Jadot (Dom. Gagey) bottle in the cellar, thought the Ladoix blanc was the only one previously.
Nose of bright spring cherry, supermarket not farmers market, tinge of alcohol.
Palate is gravel-cherry, sweet, this started quite tannic but mellowed a bit in the decanter. Drinking quite nice for an everyday Pinot, not overly complicated, but enjoyable. I'd say this bottle could hold easily for 6 years past vintage.
A good pairing with burgers hot off the grill tonight. Burgers are an interesting meal at our house, cats seem to like the aroma, so if you're not watching, paws will be sneaking up on your plate from an adjacent chair. 😺😼😺😼
24hr Update: Acidity had mellowed, I enjoyed the wine a little more after 3-4 hours of air than today, but was a great pairing with grilled pork chops tonight. — 6 days ago
Beautiful dessert wine. Not just sweet, also has a little spice like a nice light white. — 7 days ago
