    April 23, 2021 - Book Club - Reunited (Steve's Place): Blind: guessed chardonnay and assumed it must be a white burg but I wasn't in love with the call.

    A few at the table called this still champagne. Brilliant. There's a huge matchstick aroma flying out of the glass. Interesting that this doesn't use sulfur? Pure reduction? I love the aromas. That had me leaning towards burgundy which is chardonnay but it wasn't obvious and then when others called coteaux I got on board, makes sense. Middle palate was a touch light but I enjoyed this very much.

    Great blind wine because this is 100% Pinot Noir yet it's a "white wine".

    April 22, 2021 - Bookclub--Wines Tasted Blind: Poured blind, and I arrayed this wine within the context of the Champagne flights. In hindsight, it might have been more instructive to have wedged this into a white wine flight, to help create distance between it and the bubblies. This is 100% Pinot Noir, farmed off the slope where Dominique gets her other fruit for the outstanding bubbly cuvees she makes in Polisot. The wine sees no skin contact so it's completely clear. It's raised in two different 500L amphorae, one of clay and the other of sandstone. It has alcohol and pH impressions that are in line with her bubbly cuvees, too. I don't drink much Coteaux Champenois, as it's hard to find and it's a piecemeal strategy, to find a bottle here, a bottle there. So, my experiences here are new but based on tasting this wine from Dominique, I like the result. The texture was polished and one of our guys at the table called White Burg. Stone fruit, strawberry. I wish I had more to taste today but the bottle was polished at the table and overall, I thought the group enjoyed it and it also created some good conversation.

    April 18, 2020 - Backyard Tasting (Casa Shikoh): still white champagne made from 100% Pinot Noir from a single biodynamically farmed parcel in Le Tremble, fermented in tank, aged in clay and sandstone aphorae without SO2, racy acidity but lacking some depth, 13% ABV
