Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin

La Grande Dame Brut Champagne Blend 2012

Medium straw color. Citrus aromas, lightly floral and raw biscuit. Sexy AF champagne, complex with a racy citrus punch. Could use some salty caviar to balance it. Definitely can go another 8-10 years. It’s a Grande Dame, absolutely amazing! — a year ago

Migan Vinos Atlánticos Listan Negro 2019

The most volcanic wine I’ve had. All the graphite and stone. Is sweet mushroom a thing? A little hollow in mid palette, with a pretty perfume wood finish. — a year ago

Château Haut-Bailly

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Red cherry twizzler pull apart licorice…. That’s what jumps out on the nose. With time and further investigation, there’s an herbal, minty note, dried tobacco, mulberry and a reductive medicinal cherry feel. Showing development and sweetness. Cherry, forest berries meet this dried sandlewood almost cigar box feel on the palate. Freshness hangs on with plenty of structure. Drink or hold. — a year ago

Had it a year ago. It was drinking nicely w/ room for improvement for years. Surprisingly, still an under valued producer.
