Cuvée Rosé Brut Champagne Pinot Noir 1812

My second go at this wine. This round seems to have a bit more body and verve. A bit more Pinot esc than sparkling. Not that it’s heavy, it just feels like they gave it more backbone of fruit and maybe more skin contact. Tiny silky bubbles and raspberry/strawberry fruit abound with great acid. — 12 days ago

This bottle has very sharp, almost tart, acidity. Complex aromas and soft persistent mousses saved the day. — 19 days ago

Delectable Wine
9.4

Deep, lurid ruby. Displays highly expressive aromas of blackberry, cherry compote, pungent flowers, olive and black pepper, plus a hint of smoky bacon. Chewy and expansive in the mouth, offering intense, spice- and mineral-accented black and blue fruit, bitter chocolate and violet pastille flavors, with a sweetening touch of cola. Finishes impressively long, energetic and focused, with resonating floral and spice notes and youthfully firming tannins. 100% whole clusters and all neutral oak.

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2019

A buddy of mine and I dropped into one of my favorite little cafes in Omaha to get a bite and share a bottle. We grabbed a table and I scampered off to select something from the wall. As I walked over to the Rhone section, I began to scan the labels and about fell over when I saw three bottles of Gonon low-key just chillin…priced under $70. At this point, there was no question what we would be drinking tonight.

Popped and poured; no formal notes. I fully knew this was going to be somewhat considered infanticide but how was I going to pass this opportunity up? The nose is classic Northern Rhone with olives, black pepper, bacon fat and gorgeous blue and red fruits. The tannins are medium+; the acid matches. And the texture? Well, she thiccc but there is a sexy confidence that is enormously becoming. Finish is long and super satisfying. Fun to try young but I expect this to be a very lovely bottle for many years to come. Drink now with some patience (and an open mind) or through 2034 with ease. Oh…and you best believe we took the other two bottles home with us.

Clos des Mouches Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

My last bottle of the 15 vintage CDM rouge I had stored in my kitchen refrigerator. The strong reductive elements and aromas have pretty much blown off and this was showing very well. Smooth, silky with some medicinal cherry and forest floor/green moss. I think this is probably one of my favorite CDB rouge wines still to this day & I believe this year or last year was the 150th anniversary of the Mouches cru/vineyard. And a special congratulations to my friend Veronique who made this wine & just received the highest honor in France. Pretty cool! — 18 days ago
