Red and black fruit mingle with turned earth and spice box characters. Lush while still playing lightly across the palate. Layers of ripeness are holding up on this 6 year PN. Velvet tannins and vibrant acid frame the wine from start to finish. A great representation of the 2015 vintage. — a year ago
Straight out of Barbonne, comes this 100% Pinot Noir champagne that’s full of life and character. Aged on lees for two years and disgorged on 6/2/17, that little bit of extra time makes a difference. 8 g/l isn’t too much, it’s still a smooth pour. This is a little under the radar gem that I went into with knowledge and was so pleasantly surprised. Intense but great for all occasions.
A highly expressive nose featuring roasted almonds and a slight touch of raspberries. Marmalade and tea biscuits accompany. Really nice acidity and chalky minerality. Those Pinot notes really shine on the palate with cherries and kumquats, along with the faintest hint of earth. A really nice champagne that hits all the high notes. — a year ago
WOTN incontestably was the 1990 Comtes Lafon Genevrieres. We were blinded on the vintage, I guessed ‘89. What magical place this wine was in. Stunningly complex, perfectly mature and ultra generous both on the nose and the palate with its nutty & honeyed aromas and layer upon layer of flavors. A reminder to us all how good aged white Burgundy can be when it’s on. — a year ago

We’re indulging in some Lanson, NV Brut Rosé, Champagne to begin the long weekend in Sonoma and Napa, California. ABV 12.5%. Disgorged on Feb 10, 2018.
We’re loving the views in Kenwood and soaking in the peaceful, bright, lovely sunset overlooking the rolling hills from our place.
This wine is pale salmon. It has prominent raspberry and lemon curd notes alongside bruised apple, bread dough, croissant, dried white flower, and blanched almond notes.

Pop and pour (but to be enjoyed over at least a couple of days). Notes from 15 min open. On the nose: intense rose and earth, spice. a touch of va, vanilla and cranberry...wow, this is elegant, but the nose is a lovely statement. On the palate: ok acidity at first, but creamy and good density on the mid with wild strawberry cream and roses, with acidity slowly building, until.intense finely grained tannin kicks in on the finish. Soft pepper, but the tannin is the last thing I taste: very intense. An excellent btl, but we'l see what tomorrow brings..my first experience with this producer. — a year ago
