Domaine Masaki Wakabayashi

Noguchi Northern Alps Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

Maybe sharing it with mom, who loves #charddy & thought this was a great bottle, caused me to enjoy it more this time or maybe it was being able to drink a bottle and not just a glass, thus tasting its evolutions that caused the higher rating? Either or, it's a v good #wine from #japan. Love it's electric lift & lack of obtrusive #oak — 4 years ago

Really really good. Very clean and pretty. A distinct round sweetness on the attack but finishes long and smooth. Crystalline. Enjoyed with chicken sashimi! #japan — 4 years ago

Domaine Takahiko Soga

Nana-Tsu-Mori Pinot Noir 2013

How does one tidy up a #day of #snowboarding? with a bottle of #pinotnoir from #japan of course. scents of tilled, damp soil, freshly scattered mulch, broken brambles, & slivers of pata negra follow thru on a palate highlighted by memory evoking flavours of pleasingly tart, just picked red huckleberries while traipsing thru a temperate #rainforest in Southeastern Alaska. Pretty damn expressive & heaps tasty. Get some. #nanatsumori by Domaine Takahiko Soga. Something to linger over, the elemental urgency, litheness & raw, electro beauty of this wine. — 4 years ago

Rue de Vin (Hideaki Koyama)

Deux Robes Violettes Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2012

Solid, well structured #redwine from #nagano #japan. not huge on fruit, which is good, as enjoyed its austerity & dryness that was supported with just enough fruit as not to be like sand in the mouth. — 4 years ago

Domaine Gramenon

Côtes du Rhône Grenache Blend 1996

Going #Rhône this Friday night. '96 #DomaineGramenon #CepsCentenaires from #AOC #CotesduRhône #France. Sexy, little number, with a lithe nose & palate of mushrooms, garrigue, chalk & black tea. Super bright, tongue smacking acidity! A dancer for certain. Wonderful #wine & perfect finish to a long work week & beginning of the #GoldenWeek vacation in #Japan. — 4 years ago

Takayashiro Winery

Chardonnay 2014

the #vino is an unusual #chardonnay from #japan in northern #nagano near the #ski resort of #nozawa onsen. why unusual? well, it has a fairly neutral nose, with just a whisper of green apple & a splash of salty sea spray. On the palate, that saline character is omnipresent & combines with the bright #acidity to create a very pleasing textural experience. At just 12% abv & only ¥1550/bt, it's a totally "gulpable" bit of salubrious #booze both for head & wallet. — 4 years ago
