Bérêche & Fils

Brut Réserve Champagne Blend

When you see Bérêche on the list, you feel like you entered a cheat code and this bottle, disgorged 11/2021, underscores yet again the incredible value presented by the “Brut Réserve”. It’s a beautiful golden color in the glass with persistent mousse and lovely weight and viscosity in the palate. This is so rich with an abundance of fruit and yet so balanced with remarkable acidity. It’s a perfect aperitif but would play an excellent partner to any meal as well. These wines are truly special and becoming more and more elusive. I’m taking advantage while I can. — 15 days ago

My favorite grower champagne at the price. Wish it could come out of my faucets at home!

Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus Grèves Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2009

Better with a couple more years of age - last had in 2020. Oak has fully receded in a good way. Nice red fruit. Definitely quite restrained - the character is a bit hidden - but still holds together very well especially for a vintage I wasn’t expecting to like. — 9 days ago

Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils

Cuvée De Mon Aïeul Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2007

Beast mode, this is always over the top and grandiose and wears it well in 2007 just at the limit of ripeness being too ripe. — 22 days ago

Special Club Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay 2010

At first it’s ripe stone fruit, nuttiness and a long, evolving finish with medium autolytic tones. As it opens and the mousse subsides the fruit becomes more tart, the profile more mineral. Not at the level of the 2008 (one of the most remarkable champagnes I ever tasted) but great — a month ago
