A reliably consistent, medium-bodied wine. Buy it regularly. — 11 days ago

Thierry Allemand

Chaillot Cornas Syrah

17+ very rustic, both nose and palate. Fruit still good, But from my recollection, previous bottles were better. I have 2 more, so we’ll see. — 19 days ago

Thierry et Pascale Matrot

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2016

Limestone, fresh wind by the ocean, popcorn kernels, lemon peel.

Light to medium bodied, fresh, light and springy. Little astringent towards the end, but overall appreciate that this one’s fresh and steely, and not super oaky.

Just getting into Chardonnay, so recommendations and advice welcome!

Domaine Navarre (Thierry Navarre)

Vin de France Ribeyrenc

Love the work Navarre is doing, particularly with his “forgotten varietals” series. Carbonic nose, slightly prickly mouthfeel that dissipates with time. Very vivid and lively. Incredibly fresh for the Hérault, the schist gives this a distinct slate-y tone that cuts through the dominant wild berry character, with a roasted coffee note on the finish. Very natural and alive in feel. 12% alc. love it. — a month ago

Domaine des Roches Neuves (Thierry Germain)

La Marginale Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2011

Comparing a couple 2011 Loire Cab Francs this weekend. Was lucky to grab a half case of back-vintage Thierry Germain from Kermit a year or two ago. These wines (whites and reds) have without fail all been very very reserved, closed, and speaking very quietly. This started off quite mute but after an hour or two in the decanter started to call out with some very pretty notes of star anise, Chinese five spice, mint, fennel, and really lovey berry notes. Elegant and expressive once it opens up. These wines need TIME and then they need AIR. I’ve got a couple more reds that I’ll probably forget about for a few years. Enjoyed with NY Strip and thyme-roasted root veggies. — 8 hours ago
