Wendouree Cabernet Malbec 2009

Brief notes. Family dinner at my brothers house - sister and her hubby visiting from England. This selection from Mike’s Wall of Wendouree “. This was more black fruit plummy opulence than usual for Wendouree. Rich and intense which is par for the course with this producer. Consumed a little young at only 14 years of age. This is the Cabernet Malbec not the Shiraz Mataro. — a month ago

Les Montots Mercurey Pinot Noir 2019

2023/1. Still lovely, though it feels like the wines have gotten a bit bigger and darker in the last few vintages…perhaps they just a need a couple of years to shed a little baby fat… — 8 months ago

Citrus and apple. Lemon custard? Creamy for sure. Quite a pretty wine for a carneros. Less brutish than most. 2021 — a month ago

Rabource Rully 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

Guessed this as a 2018 white burg. A successful blind by all accounts! Ripe, lush Chardy fruit (even a touch of pineapples) and excellent quality oak, all wrapped in a lively, saline package. Deceptively light at the start, but air does bring out quite a bit of texture and power. For me, certainly a wine of its soil (white clay on limestone) and vintage, once revealed. Delicious, although I did find it a tad heavy at the end of the night. — 3 months ago

P. Lancelot-Royer

Cuvée des Chevaliers Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs

Great complexity, nose punches above its weight. A strong nuttiness puts a layer of dust on the concentrated lemon and red apple profile, giving a mini-krug feel, albeit scaled down in intensity. Five years on the lees and 30% reserve show really well — 7 months ago

La Digoine Côte Chalonnaise Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2010

Bodegas Hermanos Peciña

Reserva Señorío de P. Peciña Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2015

Our second choice, but a total winner. The “first”choice just didn’t work. Probably has a few years left, but gorgeous right now. Drink now, if you can find it — 7 months ago

Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay 2020

Delectable Wine

The 2020 Pinot Noir Ygnacia Hyde Vineyard is an attractive wine. The 2020 has a slightly gamy quality and the fruit is a touch muted, but all things considered, this is a very good wine for the year. Bright red/purplish fruit, spice and lavender open with a bit of coaxing. In 2020, the Ygnacia is not quite as effusive aromatically as it can be.
