Excellent BdB. Acid on acid on acid on acid. This drinks like laser beams. Lemon and Granny Smith apple with just a slight bit of toasted brioche on the finish. Still pretty austere at this stage—I feel like a few years in the cellar would make this even more interesting. 2015 base. Disgorged November 2018. — 19 days ago
Au Flocon de Sel. Un premier vin, blanc, pour accompagner les services de fera, ecrevisses, champignons et brochet. Tout simplement délicieux. On y denote des fruits blancs et tropicaux et un peu de miel. On retrouve un petit côté minéral, de pierres. La bouche est ronde, grasse. C’est crémeux et frais à la fois. Le bois se fait encore sentir. Longueur excellente. — 19 days ago
An absolutely stunning lunch from @joe leatherwood today. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 5 reds and 1 dessert wine. All served blind.
What a total treat. My second glass of this was very different from the first glass. At first, I was getting a lot of honeyed tropical fruits with a good bit of yeast, but then it was more bright, and had caramelized Granny Smith apple notes and classic chalky limestone. This is right down the middle in terms of reductive vs oxidative. I wish I could have enjoyed this all on its own to give it the attention it deserved. I guessed this was ‘06 Le Mesnil. — 15 days ago
