Reserve Pinot Noir 2013

A lovely pinot, wonderful balance between fruit and savoury. Slightly smokey characteristics. Not a lot of length but very pleasant wine. 2013 vintage consumed January 2017. — 3 years ago


Lyncroft Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Exquisitely balanced wine. Served side by side with the Tapanappa Foggy Hill 2017 it was certainly the more composed of the two (although in time the gap will close) and it slipped down beautifully with the lamb cigar entree. — 5 months ago

Domaine Courbet

Violette Côtes du Jura Trousseau 2013

Lots of CO2 in here, so it requires some heavy shaking and/or a long decant. As a general rule, I don't find trousseau to have quite the intrigue that poulsard does, but this one is a little stonier and less simple-fruity (and more structured) than most, with a complexion of cranberry and roses. The fruit unfurls a bit more and picks up a satiny texture once it kicks that CO2, while still having a nice acidic zing. 10% whole cluster according to the importer web page. — 4 years ago

Vie di Romans

Vie di Romans Friuli Isonzo Chardonnay 2013

2013 - Delicious. Subtle oak ageing really brings this wine together. Smooth, buttery, floral, but a freshness and acidity which shows the care of winemaking.
2008 - nice, but not as good as the 2007. rich, some minerality coming through which lingers long after the first sip. A bit flabby.
2007 - much stonier, drier and cleaner on the nose. Lively acidity driven by minerality. Really lovely.
