Terroir de Milly Petit Chablis Chardonnay 2019

A fantastic bottle of Chablis-adjacent, just great a year since our last bottle. Please see prior notes on the vintage. (A touch more salty than before, but doing fine.)

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our guest conductor Karina Canellakis is leading WAGNER (Prelude to Lohengrin, Act 1), CHOPIN (Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, Opus 21) with one of our local treasures, Emanuel (Manny!) Ax on piano and then RACHMANINOFF (Symphonic Dances, Opus 45). A fantastic night is ahead of us!

Les Essards Cote de Nuits Villages Pinot Noir 2008


Terrific nose of mature red fruits and autumnal forest floor and earth. Then a bit of shock of acids on palate but then resolved to nice balanced profile and lively texture. Good finish. — 4 years ago

Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2011

Much better than my last btl about 1.5 yrs ago. Oak better integrated, but still.char and a touch of pyrazine...which I guess I would call vintage character. On the palate: good acidity, roasted strawberry and excellent density with fantastic spice. Soft tannin on the juucy and spicy finish. Excellent. — 3 years ago

Blanc de Morgex et de la Salle Prié Blanc 2016

Prie is the varietal. A first for me from my first visit to Flatiron in SF- a place I wish I had discovered much sooner. Bought this out of sheer curiosity with no intel/insight from staff. Delicately stewed yellow apples, delicately browned citrus which doesn't sound sexy but this wine is DELICIOUS! Some salty/mineral and "of the sea" happening too. Am I tasting the juice of vidalia onion???? Juicy and delicious, more savory than fruity= Such a cool wine!! Many talking about crazy acidity but I'm finding it to be very balanced. Poss due to drinking 2016 in 7/20. Maybe the younger ones are searing??? Glad I waited a few. Anyone else drinking this while rocking Coheed & Cambria turned up to 11? No its not Hatebreed or Slayer but also not Coldplay or Chopin. Struggled to save some for day 2. Probably not a wine I'll find in MCO =( Taking last sip thinking slightly of old Burgundy. — 4 years ago
