Jacques Selosse

Initial Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Initial is the most produced in quantity and can be referred to as the “entry level” bottling for Selosse but really, it is anything but, and should not be overlooked. Particularly so with some bottle age. 2018 disgorgment is in a great spot and wafts from the glass with distinctive Selossien aromas of caramelized stone fruit, roasted nuts, honeycomb, gun smoke and floral undertones. The palate is rich, powerful and deep with racy acids and a chalky mineral core. It has both freshness and oxidative complexity yielding a complete, balanced and utterly seamless Champagne. Selosse perfection for me is 5-6 years post disgorgement and this is entering that window in great fashion. Always a treat. — 8 days ago

Domaine Jean-Jacques Girard

Les Rouvrettes 1er Cru Savigny-lès-Beaune Pinot Noir

Nose is cherry lipstick. Elegant earth.

Palate is perfect cherry. Some mere hint of bitterness. So fresh. As it opens cherry licorice. Snap this is good.

Man this is fucking well made. 9.7 on that scale. Balance. Finesse. So great. You can serve this to a billionaire. If they get burgundy they will love it.

Champagne Marie Brut Nature Blanc De Blancs

What a treat! Pale straw color, loads of Granny Smith apple, brioche and bread. No disgorge on this wine- so light bubbles dissipate. Light and flavorful. — 20 days ago
