Very fruity, and earthy flavor. Great with meat. — a month ago
Big nose, blueberries, blueberries, black olives, quite smoky, with sweet tobacco tones.
Green and black pepper, lot of other species too.
This one is a big boy, lot of body. Surprisingly, keeps some freshness. Very good length.
Great wine overall. — 4 months ago

Nose has under-ripe papaya, pineapple core, cut yellow apple, nondescript white florals and dry sandstone.
Palate has ripe pineapple core, lemon zest, light vanilla, pear puff pastry, yellow apple peel with slightly chalky notes to the medium finish. Excellent.
Testing out our new Gabriel Glas stemware tonight; almost like a (tulip) Scotch glass with a stem, really concentrating the aromas and with a wider bowl it's almost self-decanting. This was a great bottle to test them out.
I've mentioned before, never pass up the entry level wines of serious producers, they are great values, as their quality should be spread across the brand. So I'll be happy to drink the Bourgogne of anyone who also happens to make a Bâtard-Montrachet. — 4 months ago
2004 Pol Roger Churchill Cuvée a nice nose of red delicious apple with hints of a crusty baguette finishing with a faint of antique honey, the palate is refine precise with citrus, apple, and yeasty bread with a fine bead mousse! Paired wonderfully with Tulip Tree Tiger Lilly cheese and toasted baguette. — 2 years ago

We’ve been talking about this producer for a while, so excited to have found the appellation level, even if the vineyard designated bottles are few and far between. Begins with all graphite and granite on the nose, sharp and clean. Opens into reserved fruit on the palate and earthy florals like tulip or orchid. More time in the glass allows for a bit of a saline and meaty character to appear. Whole cluster, but you wouldn’t know it right away, the structure is decidedly not oak tannin, angular, but not overwhelmingly so. Paired with an arrabiata sauce, which softens the white pepper, brings out the red fruit, and surprisingly doesn’t negatively showcase the alcohol content. It’s enticing! Keeps ya checking back for more. — a year ago
