What a nose. Stunning clarity, lemon, lemon peel, clean air, amazing purity, it’s so mineral, so balanced, so clean, so pure. It’s just ridiculous. It’s so elegant and focused. What a finish.

What a nose. Huge Apple, pear, lanolin, herbs, mint sprig, complex, so deep. Headspinning. Palate is subservient. So deep and so clean. Complex, rich, balanced. So pure. Like Boito.

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our full cast of conductors include Andris Nelsons, Christoph Eschenbach, Keith Lockhart, Michael Tilson Thomas and John Williams. The beautiful and vocally talented Audra McDonald is our host for the evening along with Midori on violin and Yo-Yo Ma on cello.

This will likely be an evening to remember for some time. Program notes from the BSO "Reflecting the season-long theme, The Bernstein Centennial Celebration at Tanglewood will spotlight Bernstein's wide-ranging talents as a composer, his many gifts as a great interpreter and champion of other composers, and his role as an inspirer of a new generation of musicians and music lovers across the country and around the globe. The gala concert will feature a kaleidoscopic array of artists and ensembles from the worlds of classical music, film, and Broadway. The entire first half of the program is dedicated to selections from such brilliant Bernstein works as Candide, West Side Story, Mass, and Serenade. Music from the classical canon very dear to Bernstein's heart-selections from Mahler's Des Knaben Wunderhorn and music by Copland-plus a new work by John Williams, makes up a good portion of the program's second half; the finale of Mahler's Resurrection Symphony brings the program to a dramatic close."

We're revisiting some producer bottles from our late Spring France vacation earlier this year.

Nose of sweet grass, wet minerals, apricot skin, spring rain on flowers and ripe lemon. Palate has curious light, sweet citrus notes, tropical yellow fruits, this bottle is alive!

Photos of Jean Jacques thieving the 2017 Puligny-Montrachet out for us to sample, the modest sign indicating you've arrived at the most interesting biodynamic place in Saint Aubin and our bottle of the evening.

24hr Update: Sweet, fermented tropical fruit. Honestly I believe this will be even better in another day.

Gorgeous nose. When this wine sings it hits all the right notes. Lemon drop, hazelnuts, floral, iodine, mineral galore, hickory, so refined and complex. Palate is structured and deep. Amazing density, concentration and explosiveness. Stunning purity. Amazing amount of material here. This always needs 2-5 years of aging no matter the vintage.

Organic. Volatile in the way that can be good with spicy food.
