Les Grands Blancs Extra Brut Champagne Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay

A really pretty pale copper color with effusive, tiny little bubbles. The nose blossoms with notes of purple flowers, oyster shells, and crisp lemon zest. Plenty of salinity and toasty characteristics as it continues to open up and evolve over time, as is customary for a good proper Blanc de Blancs. Buttered biscuits shine as well as chalk. Sit with this for a little while. Really take it in. It’s so very nice.

Pure Chardonnay from family owned Grand Cru vineyards in Les Mesnil-sur-Oger and does that terroir ever speak through this wine. Based on a blend of the 2015 and 2016 vintages with an extra 20% of reserve wines. Extra Brut dosage of 3 g/l allows the wine to speak for itself. Crisp acidity and beautifully mouth puckering. The palate closely follows the nose with more pronounced autolytic notes and crushed herbs and spices. It’s not a competition but this NV entry level stands tall next to more prestigious champagnes out there.

Nice review!🥂

Robert Mondavi Winery

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Now that I am officially finished working as a RT; and have had both vaccines; my family is allowing me back in...to visit. This wine was my Christmas Gift from my brother. When I told him that I would probably wait 5 yrs. to consume; his face fell. I could tell that he was excited that I try the wine! 🤗 Of course! Although this wine is young! Mondavi! Such balance...swirling for 90 seconds. Tight but the elements for a very nice wine are standing up proudly!
I need to find another 2016..and open in 5 years! My score is low..considering potential!

Gaudi Carli Vineyard Barbera 2003

Another very pleasant surprise! Old vine Barbera from 1920s, dark color and a very interesting nose of black fruits and mature berries with earthiness. Nicely balanced and texture is lively and velvety with long finish. Big surprise for a Californian Barbera and with aging. Excellent. AA11! Only 85 cases. — 13 days ago

Domaine du Tunnel (Stéphane Robert)

Cuvée Prestige St. Péray White Rhône Blend 2016

This is simply fantastic at this stage. Lychee and pine apple on the nose. Incredibly fresh and vibrant on the palette. Tropical fruits with a lingering zeste of lemon as aftertaste. This went through a little dormant phase a while back but only to emerge with much more complexity and pleasure. — 12 days ago

Vintner's Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir Rosé 2020

Vibrant deep pink. Juicy strawberry and red cherry on the nose and the medium bodied palate. Firm, mouth-watering acidity and… oh let’s cut the pretense! This is freaking great. Full of fruit, like an Anjou, but dry and refreshing. I honestly can’t think of a better all-around rosé. You like ‘em fruity? This is your wine! You like ‘em crisp? This is your wine! But a bottle and drink it now with a salade Niçoise or soft cheese or just alone as a sipper. — 24 days ago
