High, high quality! Good spice, just enough smooth vs. tannins, keeps well re-plugged in the fridge. Will rebuy soon! — 6 days ago
Had an op to re-buy at $115 and wanted to check in on the 2006. What a nice rendition. Perhaps not the best vintage overall, but in really great shape right now with the typical tobacco aromas. Needless to say, I am buying more — a month ago
When you open a Lapierre you know you are going to have a good time. A gourmet wine with immediate pleasure as the Beaujolais floods know how to produce. Here we are dealing with one of the great artisans of natural wine without the inconvenience that this type of wine sometimes produces. It is a magnificent expression of Gamay, with volume, depth, relief. the nose is just wow! The mouth is incredibly charming .. to (re) discover.

Looking at some rebuy ops this weekend I can get more of this 2010 or Krug MV at $133. So had to re-familiarize myself with the 2010 Dom. Quite typical, but overall just very good and not outstanding. The carbonation of this young Dom is a bit off putting. After some time this is evolving nicely. A really good champagne, but I will be buying more Krug — 20 days ago
This is re-casked (believe correct term) in an Octave and therefore only 60 bottles available. I and the tasting group did not taste some of the flavor profile the bottler saw - pear/citrus and found it more wood/dried fruits/caramel/toffee. This one was the darkest brown if the group and I found the most flavorful. It’s power at 51.8%. Adding a drop of water I thought really changed the profile and made it run hotter for me. The finish on this lasts well past a minute. I usually don’t notice the finish for that long but this one stayed there for a whole and made so you didn’t forget it. Might be best if the night or at least tied with Blackadder. — a month ago
Crazy how legit this 10yr old WET vintage blend is from the DeftHand of Mark Fedor. At his peak, Mark routinely had at least one wine in the governors case… so I f I Brown-bagged this and told you it was Rioja, you wouldn’t argue. The age has melded tannin (wood and fruit) and fruit acid to a cured state of Class. All of this from VINTAGE of limited ripeness. 51% CS, 30% Merlot.... I hope Mark re-emerges at a top-tier Celler so he he can make these wines again￼. Mark’s last vintage was the 2015 Meritage… The 16 season was finished by Nate since he bought Northgate — 2 months ago
