Vine Hill Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

“Silky and lifted, with striking nuance and exceptional balance.” Galloni couldn’t have better described this young bottle. Quite fresh and tight with lemon/lime zest and restrained caramel. — 21 days ago

Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

French sav blanc. Super dry and some acidity although less than I prefer. Hints of citrus and some minerals. — 4 days ago

Remoissenet Père et Fils

Meursault-Charmes 1er Cru Chardonnay 2006

Nose has grilled lemon, squeezed lemon, light warm caramel, candied lemon, bruised white peach, distant wood smoke, dried pineapple, butterscotch candy, light roasted hazelnut and wilted yellow flowers.

Palate has braised lemon, toffee sauce, candied pineapple, warm vanilla cremé, honey drizzle on baked yellow apple, pineapple puree, ripe apricot and dry crushed rock. Plenty of acidity and powerful forever finish, a striking wine, amazing.

Cork pulled for a slow oxidation at 3h then a 1.5h decant and the wine is really singing!

Paired to braised chicken thighs with a paprika/nutmeg/rosemary spice rub, shallots, garlic, mushrooms & apricots, plated over jasmine rice... delicious!

Cumberland Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017

This was excellent @TigerGFP. Drank it after the Merry Edwards RR Pinot and it’s just striking how much more structure it had. — a month ago
