Domaine Chanson (Chanson Père et Fils)

Clos des Mouches Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

In the context of a long pinot lunch, this was one of my favourites. It’s still very young and primary, but it’s full of smooth, velvety weight. Plush. So full of potential. Opposite end of the scale to the Tapanappa Definitus, but delicious. — 10 months ago

1.5m Tiers Vineyard Chardonnay 2015

(Delectable, a simple search on the Tapanappa website will give you the correct naming of this wine!) The nose on this! I spend more time sniffing than sipping. Gorgeous Piccadilly chardonnay, delightful in its youth and with a huge future ahead of it. — 3 years ago

Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay 2013

On the nose Lemon with just a whisper of oak. On the palate grapefruit over stone fruit with noticeable acidity. Non-intrusive winemaking from industry legend, Brian Croser. Good with fresh prawns at the Gold Coast. — 3 months ago

Tiers Vineyard Etages Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay 2017

Sure it’s a pinot lunch, but nobody’s going to complain about this as a starter. Beautifully balanced and it lingers and lingers. — 10 months ago

Château Bel-Air Lagrave

Cru Bourgeois Moulis en Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

Mystery wine at Tapanappa vertical tasting. Leather and spice with hints of mint on the nose. Still plenty of life in it at 22 years old; I’m sure the magnum helps. — 2 years ago

Parawa Fleurieu Peninsula Pinot Noir 2010

Light but still with a bright colour this is an elegant Pinot Noir. Light to medium bodied this wind has great length. Very good wine ! — 6 years ago

Tapanappa

Foggy Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Ruddy ruby colour. Bright red fruit on the nose with notes of smoke and ash. No more than med bodied, with a really fresh character driven my zippy red fruit and sour cherry. Some sauvage notes. — 5 months ago

Tapanappa

Definitus Foggy Hill Pinot Noir 2017

Gorgeous, delicate wine with strong bones. The smoky stemminess is present, reminiscent of the 2017 Foggy Hill, but with more refinement. Fine tannins, precise acid line. It’s drinking beautifully today at release (especially with duck!), but the aged Foggy Hill alongside it speaks of the incredible potential. — 10 months ago

You definitely must! And you’ve reminded me that I’m overdue for a S+S visit. Also looking forward to opening a 2006 S+S Pinot Noir that I pulled out of the cellar the other day — will be a good comparison with recent tastings of Barratt and Golding.
