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.

Greenish straw on the eye. Nice, clean, crisp with beautiful aromas of Meyer Lemon, wet green herbs, smoke and oak. Buttery on the pallet with more lemony flavors, medium plus acidity, medium body, and buttery crispy finish. — 18 days ago

Vine Hill Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 1987

9.3

Such a great presentation 34 years in. Ullage loss is almost zero, which tells its own story. Ethereal, but still displays lively fruit, and bright acidity and barrel toast. Sails on... — 18 days ago

Private Selection Aged in Bourbon Barrels Monterey County Chardonnay 2019

Such a delectable wine with notes of peach, vanilla, and Carmel on the tongue. And aftertaste of bourbon barrel lingers.

We paired this wine with pork tenderloin and it was exquisite!

St. Péray Roussanne 2019

Have not met a wine Stephane makes that I haven’t liked. Vibrant, charming, full of Rhône texture and fresh. Incredibly spiced, making it super enjoyable at the table with food but also plays to an aperitif role with it’s sheer drinkability — 4 days ago
