Grand Siècle Cuvée Grande Brut Champagne Blend

Dried pea, white mushroom, dried rose petal, rubber plant, lemon essence, wonton, white pepper nose. On the palate, less subdued and stratified with rich veins of lively golden apple, mouth-watering lemon, crystalline pineapple, lime oil, and salted lime and candied grapefruit peel. Finally, carroway seed ghosts in rye skies glittering with lemon-salt skies.

Ultra Brut Nature Champagne Blend 1812

Big fruit with lime leading and citrus nation dragged into the vortex. Kefir, lemongrass toasted brioche. Palate: Lemon juice and pith, ditto the lime, big splashes of starfruit, quince and grapefruit suppressed in chalky adhesion. Clean and focused, brilliantly backlit by cool herbs and ends with lime zest and juicy lime and just a few drops of saltwater.

Cuvée Speciale Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2017

I’m a big fan of this 100% grenache CdP. Still in an upward phase. Additional cellaring will be rewarding! — 15 days ago

Chablis Chardonnay 2012

Wonderful example of well kept and well matured Village-level Chablis.
Complex mixture of straw, wet wool, chalk, iodine, broth, almond paste, candied citrus and seabreeze.
Great effort from this high-quality producer using traditional (Dauvissat-like) methods.
Drink now.

Domaine Combier

Laurent Combier Crozes-Hermitage Syrah

Vintage 2012 | Incredible fun to taste: expressive red fruit, elegance and sophistication. I only expected something else for a ten year old CH: no tertiary tones whatsoever 😳 it drinks like a young wine. Question: how do bio wines age? Paired with a steak and green beans. — 3 months ago

I tasted this wine in 2012 a couple of times I think and I remember a bright fruit expression. Glad that it's still showing so after 7 or 8 years of aging in bottle
