Les Grands Prétans Givry 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2022

Actually pretty good. Mostly cherry driven right now. Well balanced and good tannic structure. If you like burghs and you do not want to pay too much this is a good one. At La Costa Wine Co. right now by the glass. — 12 days ago

(91-93; Drink 2026-31)

Not a compromised/oxidized bottle like our prior, we're doing great tonight! Ripe white peach and cooled yellow apple slices .🤤

Paired to duck confit (D'Artagnan) over green/red lentils with a hit of Dijon mustard to get the acid balance to perfection.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2000

I still dream of the ‘72 and for better or worse always compare to that. This is great, just not as mind blowing. Definitely blended great and still vibrant, but does have a green pepperiness to it that I was not expecting from Rhone. — 3 months ago

Clos de la Boutiere Maranges 1er Cru Pinot Noir

A very decent burger for the price. Dark, almost dark ruby. Brooding and savoury. Dark and blue fruit, wood spice, chocolate and a touch of mushroom funk. Simple and a bit short but good flavour profile. — 4 months ago
