2010 Fattoria La Lecciaia (Pacini) Brunello di Montalcino

Sangiovese more

1/31/2016 - rhit wrote: NR

My first real taste of the 2010 vintage. Nice flavors and no heat despite the 14.5% alcohol, but lacking in acid and intensity.

2012 Rhys Pinot Noir Horseshoe Vineyard

Santa Cruz Mountains more

1/14/2016 - rhit Likes this wine: NR

Floral/stemmy notes and licorice, on top of minerals. And for some reason, this had a purity and drinkability that I don't normally associate with Rhys. Charming.

2010 Jean Foillard Fleurie

As others have noted, more simple than other bottlings. Still a Foillard, though, and still very tasty.

2005 Chanson Père et Fils Beaune 1er Cru Grèves

Pinot Noir more

1/13/2016 - rhit wrote: NR

Expressive and concentrated, with woody, forest-y flavor framing red fruit. A little medicinal, though, and a touch of heat from the alcohol.

NV Collard-Picard Champagne Grand Cru Cuvée Dom Picard Blanc de Blancs

Chardonnay more

12/31/2015 - rhit Does not like this wine: NR

This had intensity, breadth, minerals, and cut, but seemed to have a bit too much residual sugar for me. Not all that complex, either.

2014 Los Pilares Muscat LaDona's

Reminded me of Cornelissen's biancos. Floral, funky, and easy to drink, though somehow not always fun to do so.

A more ripe feel, even after a few hours of air. Neither bad nor compelling.

Mild TCA intruded on, but didn't completely ruin this. Interesting mature wine experience, but not all that pleasurable.

Balanced and full of minerals. Could have used a bit more acid for my taste, but was finished quickly anyway.

Interesting nose of chalk and something slightly confected, but bone dry and savory on the palate. Quite tasty.

2010 Rhys Syrah Horseshoe Vineyard

Santa Cruz Mountains more

12/5/2015 - rhit Does not like this wine: NR

Decanted and poured back into the bottle, then consumed later that night. Smelled great when decanting, but later, very green, cab franc-like aromas and not much acid or tannin. Elegant at times, but a crab-shell oxidative note appeared and it just tasted a bit off. Based on this unexpectedly poor showing, I might not decant next time, and may not wait too long to drink another bottle.

2008 Domaine Leroy Bourgogne-Aligoté

more

11/27/2015 - rhit Likes this wine: NR

Pretty much the most reduced wine ever. After lots of patience and air (but probably still not enough based on how good the last sip was) a tremendously classy, rich, and clean wine. Easily the best aligoté I've had, with lots left in reserve. Decant and/or aerate the shit out of this.

2012 Domaine de l'Ecu (Guy Bossard) Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Taurus

Melon de Bourgogne more

11/8/2015 - rhit Likes this wine: NR

More dense than your typical (even sur lie) Muscadet, and an almost chenin-like texture. Refreshing despite the heft. This was atypical for sure, but quite tasty.

2004 Domaine Les Roches (Alain et Jérome Lenoir) Chinon

Cabernet Franc more

9/16/2015 - rhit Likes this wine: NR

Far superior to the last bottle, which had me doubting this vintage, and among the best Lenoirs I've had. Perfect weight, freshness, and blurring of dark fruit and deep, earthy flavors. In a great place right now.
