Granito Cru Vinho Verde Monção Alvarinho 2017

Alvarinho of substance and breeding. Complex aromas and deep palate of white fruits , mineral and acid. Good depth and length. Not quite at the elegance of Xisto Cru but very, very good. — 16 days ago

Domaine Bernard Gripa

St. Joseph Syrah 2018

Lyle Fass

Big Gripa nose. Brooding, layered and deep. Cocoa, dark red and black berries, so much granite, really lifted. Ethereal yet brooding. Like me. Meaty, gamey. Nose has terrific substance and depth. Palate is next level juicy and deep. Elegant and pure but also has the grit, granite and grime I love in Mauves St. Joseph. Elegant and substantial with a thick core of fruit and wonderful freshness. Thus has years ahead of it and it’s a bit stubborn on the finish. But I’ve had this bottling at its apogee many times and it always ages magnificently. So linear and straight. Just a lovely lovely wine. — 2 months ago

Me Vineyard Collection Northridge Vineyard Merlot 2014

I don't tend to drink merlot often so this was a random purchase at $17. And I'm pissed I didn't buy more. This is drinking very well right now. So well balanced and not overly soft.and fruity. — a month ago

Domaine Denis Mortet

Mes Cinq Terroirs Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2005

As the name suggests this is sourced from 5 different terroirs in Gevrey Chambertin. Red fruits with a rhubarb note, decayed plant matter, forest floor a lovely perfume with a touch of rose petals. A mellow palate showing red fruits with resolved tannins. A great mouthfeel with more substance than you would expect - with depth of flavour and medium plus intensity. One of the best Village red burgundies I’ve ever had. A great vintage from a wonderful wine maker who sadly isn’t with us any longer. — 12 days ago

Henri Goutorbe

Brut Grand Cru Pinot Noir Rosé

Pale pinkish orange with delicate vivacious bubbles. Smells of summer. Aromas of raspberries and orange peel initially with more floral notes. Bruised strawberries, smoke, and crushed herbs. Energetic is the word of the day here. This packs much power and liveliness into the glass. The vinous nature is striking and the 12% of still red wine certainly has its say.

Predominantly Pinot Noir with 25% of Chardonnay from Grand Cru terroir in Aÿ. Graceful, yet intense there’s a sense of heft and substance here. Also a sense of freshness. The palate follows the nose with more pronounced red berries and soft floral notes. Spices, mint, and toasted bread. A beautiful rosé perfect for this time of year from an excellent grower house.

Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir

More substance than the echezeaux, dense core, musty cherries but elegant at the same time, first time ever experience of this cuvée. Needs patience will be wonderful in next 10 years. — a day ago

Reading someone like yourself write about “firsts” (especially in this region) confirms the endless learning curve of wine and lead me to some new discoveries. Thanks and enjoy!

Domaine Dujac

Aux Malconsorts Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Stunningly beautiful and perfumed nose that is distinctive Dujac. That seductive stemmy spice. The palate, although perhaps a wee bit less generous is pure silk. Regal texture and ultra lux mouthfeel with Grand Cru weight and intensity along with excellent precision and focus.

Black and blue fruit and pixelated minerals intertwine with Dujac whole bunch character along with a touch of cocoa on the backpalate and fine grain tannins, lead to a persistent and lifted finish. This is packed with tension and substance to age effortlessly for decades. Malco always a special wine. Baby Tâche ❤️
