Chablis Chardonnay 2019

Gueguen (Céline & Frédéric) Chablis Sérénité 2019

Text book Chablis with chalk and crushed oyster shells on the nose. A tiny bit of gun powder and lemon too
A very well balanced palate with a strong acid drive and a nice lemon note all along, and almost tropical fruits notes too. A long citrusy finish close it up in a very fresh fashion. It was served with oysters, shrimps, see snails and smoked trout. Perfect pairing

Perfect indeed!

Wild Turkey

Rare Breed Barrel Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Son of a gun, this stuff is delicious! And for the proof it’s crazy smooth. Notes of warm caramel nibs, spiced cherries, sweet pipe tobacco, and cinnamon 🤤 At $35-$40/bottle this stuff is even better. A definite household staple right here 👍🏻 — a month ago

Yeah, great QPR there. Same price point as the base bottle Buffalo Trace (In MA), I can't find it in most other states...

Agreed. I’ve been seeing base BT for upper $20’s/lower $30’s lately. Actually just bought one last week. Solid stuff.

Domaine William Fèvre

La Maladière Chablis Chardonnay 2016

Very mineral nose with crushed rocks, gun powder and lemon and hay. Typical chablis nose. The palate is well done with a strong acid backbone, a nice matter with lemon shining all along, a good grip and a long finish with lemon and hay. We served it along with a raclette. Very nice pairing. — a month ago

Les Darons Languedoc Grenache Blend 2015

Gun powder, spices, black currant, meat, leather and a pinch of tar. Soft tannins, warm, rich and fruity palate. Good balance, almost perfect, although my 2015 vintage seems to be on the declining trend. — a month ago

Mmm gun flint. 🇺🇸 I love some weapons in my American wine.

Ried Kögl 1 ÖWT Stein A.D. Donau Kremstal Riesling 2016

Subtle and classy dry Riesling from the premier cru Kögl vineyard. Exactly what you would hope for: gun flint, river stones, yellow apple, Meyer lemon, and that classic Austrian salty/mineral edge. $25

More info: harvested late October/early November. Unoaked. 1200 cases made, only 70 imported into the U.S.

From what I can gather: Salomon releases different versions of Riesling from the Kögl vineyard, however due to labeling restrictions the 2016 is the final vintage that will see a “Ried Kögl”. Evidently all versions moving forward must be called “Steiner Kögl”.

Fracture Paso Robles Syrah 2017

Started with some mineral on first blush. Gun powder hints. Fruit hints. First reaction was wow. Smooth acid. Worth the $100. — 25 days ago

Russian River Vineyards

Appian Way Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

First ever attempt at smoking salmon on my pellet grill and decided to pair with this Pinot. For the marinade I chose for the meat the wine was a tad bit weak but that doesn’t diminish the overall quality. Seemed to have a bit more blueberry on the nose and palate with some earth tones. Bit lighter than other Sonoma Pinots and might have you think of an Oregon Pinot. — a month ago
