Just a few bottles from an awesome Open That Bottle Night celebration this past weekend.

Youngest Marcassin I’ve tasted. Very powerful. A battle between fruit (pear, roasted lemon) and savory notes (sea salt, roasted cashew). At this stage, there is actually a delicate note in the middle...white flower like. Chamomile too. Great as always

Sushi and Chard night.......1 hour decant(some cloudy sediment). A sublime light gold color. On the nose: stone fruit, pear, crushed rocks, floral, some oak. Taste: green apple, pear, minerals, orange peel, toast. Nice long finish..

One of the better Chardonnays on the table. Although I think this one was bested a scosche by a 2015 Aubert Sugar Shack. This is the opinion of one man! I really was not getting much on the nose. Possibly due to my impatience of wanting to try within 5 minutes of cork pop? Potentially. Definitely on the herbal side. Palate of yellow fruit, guava, baked green apples. More to the leaner than full throttle side. Finishing with some stiff oak tannin, this one is going to hang around for a WHILE I believe. I think I'd like to try this in a few more years if I am lucky...

Delicious - honey suckle and white peach in the nose. Bright acid, creamy texture on the palate balanced with fresh tropic fruit. Very enjoyable.

Probably the best Chardonnay in California. Very smooth, light finish paired with a serving of lobster rocks at The Sea by Alexander

Full malo, good acidity, tight, voluptuous, needs a good decant

It has a 100 pt score from the Man, and while I don't think there is such a thing as a perfect wine, this is pretty darn close.
