Point Rouge Chardonnay 2012

9.5

Today was an absolutely fantastic Friday hosting at the City Club by @Dan Fitzgerald. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine. Great job Dan!

My notes against the first white were that this was more lifted and slightly lighter in body. In fact, I called this 2012 Aubert (one of their Sonoma Coast Vineyards) as I picked up lemon cream on the nose and palate. Sea salt, marzipan, honeycomb and lemon pound cake dominate the senses. Touch of heat on the finish. This is drinking marvelously right now.

@Severn Goodwin : I believe this is their highest end Chardonnay. Not seen often! 99points (for those who like to know points).

@Shay A I'm not about critic points, they don't always align with my personal scores. Nice notes, sounds like a fun bottle to seek out.

Wow, what a Chardonnay! This was served next to the 2012, both served blind. This Chardonnay was the total package. I guessed the approximate year and region. Lots of guesses for Aubert here. Nose and palate of toasted brioche, peach, pear, white flowers. Thick, full-bodied, viscous, rounded, 30-45 second finish. perfectly balanced and integrated. Ready to kick some ass. This is probably in the running for best domestic Chardonnay I have experienced to date. And amazing how different this one was served right next to a Peter Michael that was one vintage younger!

Point Barre Arbois Pupillin Ploussard 2015

A funky end to our France trip. Color was in between a light red and orange with some orange wine type dry-ness. Tons of funk so not for everyone but went well with different food. As the caviste described it “ca c’est plus rock n roll!” — 15 days ago

From Bainbridge Island, bear Seattle. Sweet, clean notes are an interesting contrast with traditional Bourbon. Nice alternative to have once and a while. — 10 days ago

Cornish Point Pinot Noir 2017

Total drickvänlighet buteljerat. Mogna mörka bär, viol, torkade blommor, kanel och örter. Ung och full av liv men ändå helt drickmogen. Ofiltrerad med bra vikt samtidigt som den är silkig i texturen. Viss tannin och alko. finns där men väldigt snyggt integrerat. — 13 days ago
