Classic Pezerolles. Stoney, surreal and layered. Just gorgeous. Tightest out of the gates so far. So floral. Gorgeous lithe elegant and ephemeral cherries. Cherry flower. Sick nose. Licorice and flowers. Just amazing. Juicy and complex with stunning intensity and finesse. Stoney throughout. Gorgeous elegance allied with sweet fruit and all on a silken string. So juicy with great breadth and depth also so so so long. Stunning. Ripe and Stoney tannins. Such a wonderful Pezerolles. — 7 days ago
Needed a little time to blow off some effervescence and funk. Once resolved, a really nice aged Burgundy. Color is showing some bricking on the edges. Nose has some brett with cranberry and white pepper notes. Palate features bright red fruit and baking spices and ends with just enough tannic structure. Won’t improve from here but has held up better than I expected. — 3 days ago
Nose has oxidized yellow apple, pineapple core, peach pit, lemon zest and older, wet oak.
Palate has day old pineapple slice, dried lemon peel, creamy butter, green banana peel, zingy acidity with nice sandstone-like minerals on the medium-long finish.
Seems quite advanced for a 2016 vintage, a nose and (sort of) palate of a wine 6+ years its senior. Our only bottle, likely we could get another, but at ~$50 it's not worth it to us. I did decant for about 90m, based on experience with other 2016 S-A wines, not sure if this was enough time for this bottle, but it is showing improvement with glass time.
At hour 3+ the semi-ripe, tropical fruits are finally making an entrance 👍 — 4 days ago
This is brilliant. Huge expressive nose. So clean and full of mid season cherries, spice, flowers, mineral, licorice, high end bubble gum. So dope. Palate has stunning sweetness and purity. Oh man what a sphere. Stunning ripe tannins. Beautiful purity and so delicate. What a Pommard. Showing stupid elegance. True wow. Terrific inner mouth aromas. Ripe and juicy tannins and such complexity. A lot of material. Awesome. — 7 days ago
Terrific nose. So fresh and pure. So so Pommard. Stones, spice, tea like aromas and deep cherry fruit. Juicy and complex with lovely fruit and purity. Fresh and ample but also energetic and linear. Delicious. Terrific volume and freshness. So pure. So clean. Amazing purity. Really impressive fruit soak on the finish. Exceptional village wine. — 7 days ago
This was incredible. Also very well priced at this restaurant. I was surprised it was so good for being relatively young and not being terribly expensive. Great body, hints of earthiness and spice. — a month ago
A little rustic at first - Decant for ca 30min. After 10 years pretty good! Still very juicy and young at heart with Morello 🍒 and chalk but also plenty of secondary flavors - earthy, forest floor, bark, black tea, blueberry on the back palate pine needles - the tannins are still quite dominant this can go for 5-10 more years. Direct from Lyle Fass and therefore not widely available. — 8 days ago
Great acidity on the nose and in the mouth, very consistent — 11 days ago
