Domaine Barmes-Buecher

Rosenberg Vieilles Vignes Alsace Sylvaner 2018

“In the glass, the wine has a beautiful, limpid yellow gold color. Aromas of Cavaillon melons, lemon oil, macadamia, and crystallized honey, along with more fleeting suggestions of bergamot, orange blossoms, and dried figs move in and out of the foreground as the nose evolves in the glass. On the palate, the wine is dry, sumptuous, and harmonious, with layered flavors that echo the nose, all seasoned with the exotic saline minerality that is characteristic of Maxime’s brilliant 2018 vintage.” — Moore Brothers Wine Co. — 2 months ago

Domaine Cornu-Camus

Bourgogne Aligoté 2018

JKT
9.0

First experience of an Aligote. Sharp white floral notes minerals on nose. Mouth watering acidity, steely and tingling finish. Excellent food wine. Moore B. Opened 8/24/20 bit more mellow and opened nicely in the glass to be an enticing test wine to go with mildly spicy medley of chicken and veggies. — 2 months ago

Domaine Louis Boillot et Fils

Bourgogne Pinot Noir

“In the glass, the wine has a cool, dark ruby color that warms to red tinged fuchsia at the edge. Aromas of smoky griotte cherries, fresh ripe cranberries, and wild blueberries move in and out of the foreground, sometimes alternating with wild mushrooms, charcouterie, and freshly cut hay as the nose evolves in the glass. On the palate, the wine tastes “Pinoté” (more like Pinot Noir than Gamay), and grows more voluminous with time in the glass: sleek, focused, transparent, and vibrant, with a sweet core of flavors that echo the nose, including sun warmed black raspberries, dried tarragon, Earl Grey tea, and cardamom. If you didn’t know that this was a Moulin à Vent, you’d be excused if you mistook it for one of Louis Boillot’s elegant, silky Volnays. Drink now – 2029.” — Moore Brothers — 2 months ago

Xavier Vignon

Rasteau Grenache Blend

“In the glass, the wine has a saturated dark cordovan color, almost black at the center, with flashes of garnet and mahogany at the edge. Aromas of black griotte cherries, crème de cassis, and licorice root, along with melted dark chocolate and a cornucopia of herbes de Provence and spices, move in and out of the foreground as the nose evolves in the glass. On the palate the wine is solid, smooth, and opulent, with sweet graphite-infused red and black fruit flavors that echo the nose, all seasoned with brilliant berry acids and wonderful graphite mineral brightness, and unfurling like a peacock’s tail, gaining weight over time in the glass. Palpable mineral extract, voluptuous silky tannins, and the low-pH Mourvèdre all contribute to the wine’s compelling opulence and length. Drink now – 2026.” —Moore Brothers — a month ago

Bele Casel

Col Fondo Veneto Prosecco

JKT
9.2

8/15/20 at parents with mix of home cooking and spicy take out from Bear Chinese place. The most unusual Prosecco with second fermentation in bottles without disgorging and so it’s cloudy. Interesting complex nose with minerals and some funk. Very lively texture and a bit sour that’s perfect for the mix of food. From Moore Brothers. Next day about 120ml in less than full Cali bottle so bubbles are gone but the essence remains. The nose is now more mature white fruits with hints of mild ginger and the texture is almost creamy. Yum. Excellent. Upping a pointer 9.2. Best Prosecco I’ve ever tasted. — 2 months ago

Balestri Valda

Vigneto Sengialta Soave Classico Garganega Trebbiano

This Soave Classico Vigneto Sengialta Balestri Valda 2017 comes from a single hillside parcel of black basaltic soil planted to Garganega and Trebbiano di Soave. The grapes are hand-harvested, fermented separately, and matured in neutral 2000-liter botti for twelve months. In the glass, the wine has a saturated, deep yellow-gold color, with flashes of green-gold just at the edge. Aromas of sun-warmed yellow peaches, crystallized honey, marzipan, and acacia blossoms emerge at first, then alternate with fleeting suggestions of beeswax, grated nutmeg, and sage, as the nose evolves in the glass. On the palate, the wine honeyed and opulent, with a round, juicy core of sweet stone fruit and honey that echoes the nose, along with plenty of dry extract, deep saline minerality, and ripe tartaric acidity. The layered sweet core of honeyed melon and almond paste is seasoned with delicate bitterness, and the long elegant finish is punctuated with fine mineral grip. Drink now – 2030 (yes, the wine is irresistible today, but according to Laura Rizzotto, a bottle that hid unnoticed for fifteen or more years in a good cellar would be a treasure). — Moore Brothers, Brooklyn — 2 days ago

Domaine Le Roc Des Anges

Llum Grenache Gris Maccabeu 2015

JKT
9.1

Moore B beat the tariff special 28. Deep purple glass coating color. Dark red fruits and earth and spice. Yet lively texture lithe on palate and warm satisfying finish. Excellent. — 2 months ago

Château Roque Le Mayne

Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

“In the glass, the wine has a glistening, dark royal purple color, almost black in the center, with flashes of magenta just at the edge. The classic Right Bank nose unfurls gradually with aromas of sun-warmed black raspberries, griotte cherries, and sweet white tobacco moving in and out of the foreground, sometimes alternating with Dutch cocoa, eucalyptus, and vanilla as the wine evolves in the glass.

On entry, the wine is luscious and succulent, building to a rich, juicy mid-palate, with a cornucopia of black and red fruit flavors that echo the nose, all lightly seasoned with toasted coconut, baker’s chocolate, and red berry acidity, and the long, elegant finish is punctuated with sinuous, fine-grained, dusty tannins. Drink now – 2027” — Moore Brothers, Brooklyn
