Block 5 Pinot Noir 2016

Second 16' Block 5 this year and this one's showing a lot better. I put it down to provenance - this was straight from Michael, the other was from the local importer. Nevertheless, the 16' Original Vineyards still the better wine for me at the moment.

I think Michael's right in saying that the Block 5 needs time to sort itself out. But really what am I talking about? The vigneron should know best. Still good to have confirmed it myself. This bottle was a touch disjointed - as with the previous bottle, the tannins stood out. The nose was still quite dark. However, it was certainly brighter on the palate with red cherries instead of dark berries. Also feels fresher without accentuated fruit sweetness, better oak integration although not subtle (smoky). There's a lovely meatiness and spiciness. I like this wine, but it could be more elegant which time would give it!

Send Nudes Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

Brandon Allen is awesome, and so is his wine. Acid driven and less fruit, 100% and the color of Provenance.

Oh and yes, that is his cell phone number on the label.

Les Chataigners Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2016

I love this wine. So age worthy. Deeply mineral to start and then started to show its provenance after 3 hours. Love this — 2 months ago

Tio Pepe 'Fino En Rama' Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Palomino Fino

Very good quality with a solid expression of its provenance and a good length. Bruised apples, yeast, bread, iodine and a dry chalkiness puts this right where it belongs a good concentration on the palate which could last longer. As all serious sherries it is performing well above its price which takes you the question that everyone ask themselves, why don’t I drink more sherry? — 24 days ago

Les Cailloux Rully Chardonnay 2016

Mineral, lemon rind. These lesser PYCMs are definitely underrated. While leaner than a Meursault or CM, they make me reconsider all lesser appellations. It’s a definite step above the lesser Bourgogne blanc. Producer over provenance every day, all day. — 2 months ago

Clos Ste. Hune Alsace Riesling 2008

Drank beautifully. So glad we didn't decant it as the evolution was rather intriguing. Straight out of the bottle, petrol and grapefruit dominated the nose. A rather honeyed mid-palate stood out like a sore thumb, but the precision and length undeniable. At this point I had concerns with the bottle's storage, but as the night progressed, the wine started sorting itself out.

Impeccable harmony. The nose started developing that chamomile note that I so love in older Rieslings. Slate, layers of fruit ranging from lime to peaches, petrol, and mint. The palate - super mineral, hay, candied lemon, apricot, honey (not disjointed anymore). Laser precision, with a dry long finish.

Notably, this looks a bit more developed than the 08' CFE drank about 6 months ago. Don't think that should be the case, despite how delicious the wine was - so I think this bottle's provenance may have not been as pristine.
