U can’t seem to get away from that vineyard.

Cuvée de Réserve Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Pale gold with green tinges. Pleasant perlage with minuscule bubbles that just go on and on. Very pretty visually. Intoxicating aromas of white and purple flowers initially. Mushrooms, grapefruits, and white pears shine along with beautiful chalk. Gorgeous.

The Côte des Blancs really speak clearly through this wine. 100% Chardonnay produced from grapes from four Grand Cru sites, Les Mesnil-sur-Oger, Cramant, Avize, and Oger. And it shows. An astonishing 40% of reserve wine is added to the blend, which is from a perpetual reserve of wines going back to 1988. Amazing stuff.

This is all very graceful, very refined. Everything in the right place. Full bodied and elegant with racy acidity and exquisite balance and structure. The palate is harmonious with stone and orchard fruits and toast. Quite saline with nice minerality and subtle spice. Real bubbleheads already know everything they need to know about Pierre Peters but if you don’t know, now you know. You’re welcome.

Flavors of crunchy minerality in the forefront with layers of tart cranberry, strawberry and a hint of cream yet finishes with dry rose petals. — 6 days ago

Les Bournais Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2018

Beautiful bouquet upon opening. Orange zest, quince, pear and cantaloupe explode from the glass. Crazy minerals too, a strong granitic quality. The palate is rich, round, chewy, but structured with a nice bit of RS. The heft and volume is impressive, but also kind of overbearing at this stage. Like a lot of ‘18 Loire Chenins lacks some acid relative to richness. Just needs to shed its baby fat. — 25 days ago

Special Club Brut 1er Cru Champagne Blend 2013

Good enough for Covid Oscars...bright, limpid gold, round, creamy, soothing attack! Starts pushing out the ripe, red apple, dripping juicy pear.... really nice with the runny triple cream and the crumbly, salty, crystallized Pecorino. I think this wine deserves another point... maybe point and s half. Lucious glass of bubbles! Cheers! — 20 days ago
