  • 2011 Domaine du Vissoux / Pierre-Marie Chermette Beaujolais Coeur du Vendange

    Opened for City-Leicester along with a '11 Bouland Corcelette - kind of a David vs. Goliath/semi-carbonic maceration vs. traditional vinification thing. I was surprised to find I preferred this to the Bouland. I went back and forth between the two in the first hour or two they were open, but after that I generally leaned toward the Vissoux. The Bouland had a bit more depth, but this bottle developed more nuance. Lovely light fruit, cherry and black currant, along with nice floral overtones. As this got some air it also added a subtle earthy element, which I think was a lot of what made me prefer it to the Bouland. Bouland's light touch with his Corcelette and the relative heft of this Coeur de Vendange (for a semi-carbonic bojo) made for less of a stark contrast than I had anticipated. Perhaps the most surprising element of this head-to-head comparison was that the Vissoux was significantly better than the Bouland on day 2. I expected the opposite. Both wines held up decently for two days, but only the Vissoux gained at all in complexity, and then both declined. Still pretty good, but I don't think this is getting any better.

  • 2011 Daniel Bouland Morgon Corcelette

    Opened for City-Leicester along with a '11 Vissoux Coeur de Vendange - kind of a David vs. Goliath/semi-carbonic maceration vs. traditional vinification thing. I have very much enjoyed these in the past, and I enjoyed this one too, but to my surprise I preferred the Vissoux. I went back and forth between the two in the first hour or two they were open, but after that I generally leaned toward the Vissoux. The Bouland had a bit more depth, but felt slightly more monolithic. As with past bottles, cherries were the predominant note here. Bouland's light touch with his Corcelette and the relative heft of the Coeur de Vendange for a carbonically macerated bojo made for less of a stark contrast than I had anticipated. Perhaps the most surprising element of this head-to-head comparison was that the Vissoux was significantly better than the Bouland on day 2. I expected the opposite. Both wines held up decently for two days, but without any real improvement in the Bouland, and then declined. Still pretty good, but I don't think this is getting any better.

  • 2012 Domaine Huet Vouvray Sec Le Haut-Lieu

    Opened this for the Barça-Athletic Bilbao game a few weeks ago, but forgot to write a note. More acid than Timothy Leary, just a tiny touch of rs. Lots of citrus and a bit of beeswax, but even with a ton of air this wasn't giving much up. Nice, well-made Huet, but not a showstopper. Neither is this year's Athletic side, by the way.
