Spectacular Brunello with a nod to a Burgundian touch and influence with a transparent feel and fruit purity. Not a trace of oak on the palate. Refined and silky tannin, ample acids, a long, fruit filled finish that has the Sangiovese from Brunello feel in the aroma and palate.

Yeah baby 2009 IS all that! Fantastic now , this should be spectacular in 5-7 years and even better after if you have the patience. Pure cassis, currants and cherry notes mesh with campfire embers, stone minerality and coffee. Stunningly pure and long finish. #purity #bdx2009 #stemilion — 6 years ago
Wine is always evolving; as a grape on the vine, in a vessel transformed, in the bottle as it ages and in finality in our glass. Sometimes you get lucky and catch a wine at its most perfect moment. #pinotnoir @Lioco Wine
A perfectly ruby and Burgundy red color. The nose is fresh and savory, with wild red berries and earth. The palate is clear and precise, confident in displaying it's California home and it's Burgundy roots. Juicy, sappy, and pure, the palate has crunchy acidity and polished, silky fine tannin.
This may be a little wine from the Sonoma Coast, but make no mistake that it delivers terroir and typicity more than many wines double and triple the price!

Damn, my first flask like bottle of wine and one of the best whites for me this year. Best Sylvaner ever for sure, no doubt of that! Aromas of citrus and stone fruits, with dry dusty cracked rock minerality and a slight funky pungency. Like biting into a fresh apricot, then into a sweet pink grapefruit, juicy with perfect acids. Medium+ body, excellent length and profoundly balanced and pure.

It’s no surprise that we see winemakers and sommeliers swooning over Gonon’s wines, which are renowned for #purity and uniqueness. This one is magnetically feral with wild herbs, animal notes, and loads of Syrah’s trademark cured olives. Simultaneously fresh and intense, it is the pinnacle of #saintjoseph. — 5 years ago
