Clos Saint Jean

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc White Rhone Blend 2015

A manly white, to be sure, viscous and rich yet with enough bright baked apple and dense citrus to create balance. Grilled buttered shellfish calling out for this beast. — a month ago

Pinot Noir 2017

Bought for a recipe calling for white wine. One of the cheapest wines in the bottle store, but really enjoyed finishing off the remainder of the bottle! — 3 months ago

E. Guigal

Château d'Ampuis Côte-Rôtie Syrah 1999

Well these two did not disappoint! Both wines showed so well and true to what people love about these great producers and their wines.

• 2011 Domaine Fourrier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Les Gruenchers VV
• 1999 Guigal Ampuis Cote-Rotie

The Guigal I guessed blind as a 2000/2001, slightly torn between calling it a La Mouiline or Chateau Ampuis I ultimately went Ampuis. Guigal is pretty distinct in its character and the Ampuis is a beautiful introduction to the great Cote-Rotie wines from these hillside vineyards around the village of Ampuis, the namesake of this wine and the place it is made. This bottling was 🔥🔥🔥in this moment!

Fourrier is quickly becoming a favorite Burgundy producer of mine. This Chambolle was like terroir milled into silk. Texturally fine and plush, it was light as a feather with incredible density from the nose to the long, persistently elegant finish. This wine encapsulated what I feel are all of the great attributes that I love in a great red Burgundy. Purity abounds in this gorgeous Pinot Noir, textbook!

Heck of a hosting by @Weston Eidson last night for the City Club wine group. All wines were tasted blind.

When tasting next to the MacDonald, it was incredible how much more ripe fruit was present here. I mean, straight up oozing blackberries and blueberries. I pondered if there could even be Malbec in this based on how inky and juicy it was at the core. I went back and forth between calling this Australian Cabernet or Howell Mountain Zinfandel. There was Andes mint and fig with a rich finish. I had the ‘16 during my visit earlier this year and found it to have a touch more savory notes.

Freemark Abbey

Napa Valley Cabernet Boché 1970

I’m not sure who was calling this the Bobby Boucher (Joe or Shawn) but it is nobody’s water boy! Still fully intact at 49 years. I believe this was the first Bosche bottling. Plum, fig and cassis are all present. I get caramel too. Finish fades ever so slightly but it had more tannic backbone than the Insignia, Mondavi and HSS that we’re 20+ years older. Not quite as polished as those three but clearly heartier and more unique. Props to @David L for sharing again. — 3 months ago
