Vin de Pays des Bouches-du-Rhône Syrah Blend, Syrah more

6/20/2015 - rhit Likes this wine: NR

Depthy, roasted fruit. Lithe on the palate and nicely resolved but still perceptible tannins. No sharp edges. Delicious and nice with steak.

2010 Ultramarine Pinot Noir Rosé Heintz Vineyard

Sonoma Coast more

Less exuberant fruit this time around - more savory, tart berry notes instead. To me, it had more tension and better overall balance. I think this is getting (even) better.

2006 Sesti (Castello di Argiano) Brunello di Montalcino

Sangiovese more

5/30/2015 - rhit Likes this wine: NR

Pretty and approachable, with almost too-timid acid and tannin for my taste. Still great with a bolognese, and otherwise the harmony is really appealing. If I had more I probably wouldn't wait forever.

Maybe not as salty and intense as the previous vintage, but plenty funky and herbal, and plain delicious.

Gamay-like with some spice and glycerol richness. On the more difficult side to drink, but not bad.

NV Marie Demets Champagne Cuvée 19ème

Champagne Blend more

4/25/2015 - rhit Likes this wine: NR

A much more integrated and confident showing than the previous bottle. Given the richness and depth of flavor this time around, I would not have guessed it was the same wine.

2007 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Valmur

Chardonnay more

4/18/2015 - rhit Likes this wine: NR

Heavy and awkward initially, this became briny, lean, and intense with air. Not sure it integrated completely by the time the bottle was empty, but it was still kick-ass and great with oysters.

Steely at first, it was preferable on the second night, with more lushness and fruit.

2013 Domaine les Fouques Côtes de Provence Cuvée de l'Aubigue

Rosé Blend more

4/6/2015 - rhit Likes this wine: NR

Perhaps not as deep or balanced as other les Fouques bottlings, but plenty bright, mineral, and fleshy. Gained some nice complexity after a night as well.

Awesome aromatics. Had the viscosity and concentration of big wine, with none of the alcohol. Unexpectedly rich and delicious.

Good fruit and freshness, but an acrid finish that was hard to get past.

Mineral and juicy. Good for simple, light-on-flavor refreshment. While it doesn't impress, it's not as bad as you'd expect given the other notes here.

2010 Ultramarine Blanc de Blancs Heintz Vineyard Sonoma Coast

Chardonnay more

3/8/2015 - rhit Likes this wine: NR

Took a few minutes to get going. When it did, there was intense, slightly oxidative lemon, some oyster and mineral flavors, and lots of chalk. Very taut and nervy - even after a few hours - but damn expressive and delicious. One to cellar and watch for sure.

Concentrated and already pretty complex. Aging stupendously, and I'm thinking this has a long way to go.
