Hautes Cotes de Beaune Pinot Noir 2016

Very dark rubi robe, nose of dark cherries and a hint of spices, pronounced tannins (whole clusters?) and a good medium body and length. Will be better in 3 years. Really good stuff ! — 5 days ago

Côte - Rotie 2017

Should have listened to my gut. Way too early to open this. Had some diacetyl character that took an hour to blow off and was extremely primary at this age. Last glass was better and was starting to reveal notes besides just the brambly fruit but I feel I only got a slight glimpse at how epic this might be with some age. — a month ago

Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise 2017

Funky orange blossom honey aroma. Sweet, almost sticky, on the palate. Notes of honey, apricot, yellow apple skins, & a barnyard finish that balances out the sticky fruit. Lovely dessert wine. — a month ago
