Cristal Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blend 2008

Yeasty notes on the nose. Still lean on the palate. Has some secondary development starting to show, but this is still a baby. — 19 days ago

Massican

Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Fresh blackened Grouper tacos poolside, this is the perfect wine for hot climate and alfresco dining. Orchard fruit, white flowers and chamomile. Super fresh without being out of balance. — 18 days ago

Trinch Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2017

Pretty perfume. A garden of roses in full bloom. A hike in spring in full foliage.

Described as everyday drinking wine to me by Ian at Some Good Wine, I’d say this is a notch higher than that descriptor.

Roses pressed to their essence, black pepper and currants, blackberries, and cloves.

Dog Point Vineyard

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

One of my new world favourite wine. Lemon grass, gooseberry and chalky notes and clean fish on the palate. — 19 days ago

Great spot to enjoy a nice wine and dinner

Domaine Hubert Lignier

Tres Girard Morey St. Denis Pinot Noir 2016

Imagine this will be much better in a few years, but still fun to try now. With a 3 hour decant, this is nice. But the tannins are a bit too present at this point. Sweet oak and dark red fruit on the nose. Some good minerality but I think the elegance will come with time. Nice with grilled chicken. — 19 days ago

Yummy!!

Domaine de Chevalier

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

With a heavenly dark, perfumed aroma, this Domaine de Chevalier 2011 is a superb Graves from a lesser appreciated vintage.

Lots of cedar, cigar box and roast coffee notes on the palate. Really fruit forward, with blackcurrant, cassis and steeped plum, and an undercurrent of gentle acidity that carries through to a vanilla laced finish. There is a flash of green pepper. Tannins are quite supple and the wine is relatively light as a whole (in Bordeaux terms, that is) - in a great spot now but could easily go another 5-10 years (but why wait?).
