Last week was a combo of 4th Friday and Open That Bottle Night on back to back nights. Needless to say, the lineup between both days was full of heavy hitters, so I’m only posting standout bottles.

A really nice Rhône white courtesy of the tandem François Villard and
@Donald Patz . Floral notes of honeysuckle, lemon, sea salt and soft pineapple. Waxy profile that I tend to get with these Rhône whites, showing thyme, hint of orange blossom and honeyed stone fruits.

The aroma is exquisitely defined and perfumed. The body has the togetherness and the structure shows dynamic tension. A virtuosic interpretation of the brilliant 2018 vintage. — 2 months ago

Jouvet Cornas Syrah 2016

A beautiful if restaurant-over-priced Cornas (embarrassed to say $$) that was stunning in its elegance and purity, haunting in its smooth entry and blood/iron notes, and loooonnng finish with grapey not woody tannins. Needs 3-5 yrs. — 5 months ago
