Rosé - Sparkling
N.V. Jean Vesselle Champagne Brut Œil de Perdrix France, Champagne

Rosé - Sparkling
N.V. J. Lassalle Champagne Premier Cru Brut Rosé Chigny-lès-Roses France, Champagne, Champagne Premier Cru
Magnum. Light pink. Serious dry black fruit, mineral, medium weight.
White
2008 Gérard Boulay Sancerre Monts Damnés France, Loire Valley, Upper Loire, Sancerre
Magnum. Medium yellow. Orange peel aromas. Medium weight. Less rich than many Boulay bottlings but intense and long. Excellent.
White
2017 François Raveneau Petit Chablis France, Burgundy, Chablis, Petit Chablis
Magnum. Pale. Herbal, saline, and mineral. Ridiculously slight for its price. I'll gladly take the Dauvissat Petit Chablis at half the price.
White
2010 Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru
Magnum. Medium yellow. Toasty oak. Woody base. Creamy, lactic feel with pear fruit and a bit of citrus peel. This could/should be better than this.

2016 Paolo Scavino Barolo Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barolo
Magnum. Light, woody, and astringent compared to some of the better basic 2016 Barolos.

Red
2016 Domaine Fourrier Vougeot 1er Cru Les Petits Vougeots Vieille Vigne France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Vougeot 1er Cru
Magnum. Red throughout. Tannic red fruit and earth. Surprisingly seductive at this point.
Red
2005 Domaine Ponsot Clos de la Roche Vieilles Vignes France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos de la Roche Grand Cru
Magnum. Ruby. Remarkably thin feel and lack of richness for such a heralded bottle. Hugely disappointing and difficult to understand coming from this large scaled vintage. Another example of a Ponsot that was show stopping when it debuted but much less compelling later on.
