Morgeot-Clos Pitois Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2013

Clos Pitois in Chassagne is about 100 meters from Clos des Gravieres in Santenay. This wine was richer and rounder than the 2013 Hubert Lamy Santenay. Not as minerally, but equally good. — 8 days ago

Réserve Brut Champagne Blend

Quite nice. Honey stone fruit, lees, huge aromatics, medium mousse. Not particularly complex but rather delicious and great QPR. — 3 days ago

Heri-Hodie 1er Cru Champagne Blend

First off, this color is absolutely killer. A dark golden, cream soda in the glass with very nice perlage. Profuse tiny, rapid bubbles. Ripe apples on the nose along with orange slices and cinnamon. Fruity red berries show with time and air. Just a touch of citrus aromas with freshly baked bread. Slivers of hazelnut and lemon zest.

From the Premier Cru village of Vrigny, this is a superstar champagne. Composed of 60% Pinot Meunier from a solera dating back to 1995 with the rest equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Certified organic in 2019. Very zippy acidity with only 3 g/l of dosage and disgorged in March of 2019. Beautifully dry with a ton of character and personality. Medium bodied bordering on the fuller side. This is a most definitely a champagne that you want to sit with for a while before it reveals all of its mysteries.

Impressive in the mouth. Undemanding but certainly not simple. Raspberries and baked apple pie. Really nice stone fruit and sharp cheese with mushrooms. A touch of soil and chalk. The finish is long and ends on a sharp note. I can’t say enough about this wine but it’s very hard to think of one that beats it in this category.

Sir Winston Churchill Brut Champagne 2002

Served blind in a white wine glass, this had a medium gold color and no noticeable bubbles. Nice aged white notes including creme brulee, wet stone, mature fruit. Thought this was a Corton Charlie before I tasted it and only then did I discover the light carbonization. At first this was closed and not offering much, but later in the evening the air caused it to expand and overall this was very nice. I would drink these sooner rather than later. — 16 days ago

Mataburro Idoine Merlot Grenache Noir

Actually 100% Merlot. Almost a bit like Pinot except for the plushness at the finish Perhaps a tad more acid would have been good but I’m not complaining. — 5 days ago
