Quarter Cut

Louis Roederer

Cristal Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blend 2002

Medium lemon yellow , persistent fine perlage . At first quite shy , needs a bit of time to get going . Then buttered pastry , confit lemon and roast nuts , quite bold and rich , just a hint of chalky minerality . On the palate the richer , deeper theme continues , those pastry and buttery notes , confit lemon and a creamy mouthfeel . Long balanced finish , the chalky acidity really helping to cut through richer , mouth filling profile . Coming back to this at the end of the meal , having sat 6 hours in the glass , this still shows remarkable freshness and life. This seems young to me still , certainly has everything for a long life ahead , better in 5 years perhaps and will show well a further 10-15 perhaps . — a month ago

Cloudy Bay

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Bright lemon color. Particularly intense grapefruit aromas and flavors with hints of freshly cut grass, asparagus and fresh herbs. Distinct citrus note on the very long finish. Bright, crisp, refreshing and zingy! Wonderfully consistent from vintage to vintage. — 8 months ago

Domaine François Raveneau

Clos Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 1988

Buttery aromas and flavors up front, lemon, sea salt, just amazing cut, acidity and depth, super long, lingering finish, yet still very youthful overall, this is why we all buy Raveneau Chablis (Les Clos being the pinnacle), well, for me, “used to buy” (LOL)!! Amazing, a true WOW wine!! — 2 months ago

Bourbon Barrel Aged California Cabernet Sauvignon 2033

Aged in bourbon barrels, this California Cabernet Sauvignon draws its rich flavors from charred barrels that once aged American whiskey. Tracing the legacy of distillers, this aging method masterfully balances the unique character imbued by these prized barrels. The reward is a seamless wine with distinctive notes of vanilla, black cherry, and dried herbs. — 8 months ago

Syrupy deep burgundy color. Smells like plums and embers. Smooth. Tastes like cherry cough drops and tobacco, with a hint of strawberry. Powdery, mild finish. — 2 months ago

Bonneau du Martray

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2012

Holy crap this is crazy and funky and special. Fresh cut grass, licorice, fish oil, like, so crazy special. It’s been open for 24hrs and the acidity is still through the roof. Silky and fresh but with lemon rind and mouth drying freshness, this is delicious and really unique. — 5 months ago
