  • 2004 Château Pavie

    First Pavie experience and I was underwhelmed. I understand it's early to drink this bottle, however I don't see the elements that will make this any better in the future. I'll chalk it up to being in a closed or awkward phase. With that said, the wine changed quite a bit over the three hours it was consumed (double decanted 7 hours prior to the tasting) and these are my impressions:

    First small pour had a nose of ripe red fruit. On the palate, acid is overwhelming and the fruit shows a mix of red and dark fruit. Not very enjoyable on its own - better with cheese and charcuterie.

    3 hrs later: Acid is out of whack with the fruit and the tannin. Overall the structural elements are there but it's currently lacking in balance. The fruit itself is not very enjoyable either - it is sour and disjointed. There does seem to be some concentration and deeper layers but they're not showing clearly and seemed to tighten up over the course of the evening. There's a lingering finish but it's not very pleasant. Likely needs more time before being enjoyable.

  • 2014 Jean-Marc Crochet Sancerre Rosé Cellier de la Thibaude

    Lovely acidity and subtle red fruit flavors of watermelon and strawberries. Perfect for summer and for pairing with lighter fare.

  • 2010 Kynsi Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard

    This is a rich Pinot Noir that needs some time to calm down. There is an intense spice to this pinot and the fruit is in overdrive at this stage. The structure is a bit rigid at this stage so not sure what will happen on that front. My initial impression was that this is aspiring towards a Grands Echezeaux in the fruit department (seriously). Wish I had an additional bottle to sample 5 years or so down the road.
