Tradition Extra Brut Pinot Noir Chardonnay

Simple and pleasant Languedoc sparkler for #bastilleday and #tourdefrance 2017 stage 13 as we hit the Pyrenees again. Crisp acid and pear flavors. Served with Tarte aux tomates confit. — 3 years ago

Domaine des Lambrays

Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2006

Makes up for the Armand. Beautiful right out of the cellar into the decanter. Translucent garnet, even cold the nose is pretty and lithe, with strawberries, light cherry, soy, mild earth. Still cellar temp too, will follow up in a bit with palate notes and rating; it's a little muted right now at 55 degrees, but very promising so far.

Follow up... palate opened up with time and temp but give it some fatty food now or another decade in the cellar, tannins still have some resolving to do. Get a strawberry cream to the nose now too, subtle mint, spice...young, but very good, bottle for

Uber young but still delicious. Spicy, juicy layered, everything good #chateauneufdupape is with a little extra pop to make it special. Drink now or wait, you won't be sorry. #bastilleday — 5 years ago

Famille Perrin

Les Sinards Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2013

Super tight at first and only that big Syrah taste was present. But with just a little time, she opened right up. Bright plumb, black raspberries, and some light spices. Mild acid and medium tannins. A nice, solid finish. #bastilleday #wine #france — 3 years ago

Very traditional and clean CdP but lacking something extra to make it special or unique. Still tasted fresh so age wasn't an issue. Good just not great. #bastilleday — 5 years ago
