2019 vintage. A bit more Merlot than Cabernet, but the latter seems to dominate the nose. — 2 months ago

Réserve de la Comtesse Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

At first: yeasty and spicy tones, shoe polish, dried herbs. Then, after a few minutes: grilled pepper, open knit, balanced, ecoline paint, earthy, licorice, bacon, very complex. Love it. — a day ago

9.6

Fantastic nose. Cassis, liquer, blackberry, blueberry, dark black cherries, florals and mega spice. Stunning but holding back. Lots of granite and an airiness about it. Super penetrative nose that has tremendous complexity and ethereal layering. Palate is a stunner. Big and rich but so elegant and sapid. Blackberry and blueberry fruit that is ultra concentrated and so refined. This is so refined. Gorgeous purity and depth even though it’s holding back. Incredible fruit and the oak is in check. Will track this but easy 9.5 for now. With air this became outstanding. Velvety and so elegant. 9.5 to 9.6. — a month ago

Love this producer and it's not because of the questionable-at best-labels.

@Scott@Mister A’s-San Diego trust me this is an improvement over the old Brocarde label!

Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2021

Light golden color with a subtle green hue. Aromas of tart green apple, pear, lemon zest and slate. The fruit forward palate features cooked pear, lemon, orange and sweet spices. Long, rich and intense on the slightly herbal finish with a crisp mineral note. Bristling acidity. Clean and bright with a silky smooth texture. — 3 months ago
