    May 13, 2022 - Not as good as the first bottle I had last fall. Stewed fruit on the nose and palate. A hint more VA.

    May 6, 2022 - Well developed & satisfying ~ earthy aromatics balanced with blue & black fruits & lavender. Beautiful, richly fruited palate, not excessive in any regard. Decanted 15-20 minutes, though more would be better. Drinking very nicely now but seems it could have another 4-5 years of prime enjoyment ahead.

    April 17, 2022 - Easter Dinner with Friends (2022)

    The wines:
    2018 Peter Michael Chardonnay Mon Plaisir (96)
    2017 Saxum The Hexe (97)
    2006 Chateau de Beaucastel (96)

    Three spectacular wines for Easter feast of a veal stew over polenta, braised carrots follow up with a flourless chocolate and hazelnut cake and a citrus cheesecake.

    The 2018 Peter Michael Mon Plaisir is in a great place and shockingly good. Incredibly balanced among fruit, smoke, spices, and earth. I was expecting a good wine, but this is great and going to continue to get better as it ages. A spectacular American Chardonnay.

    The 2017 Saxum The Hexe is ready for drinking. Open and decanted through an ullo filter for about 90 minutes before glasses were poured. It coats the palate with delicious fruit, herbs, soil, minerality and a touch of finesse. This should age wonderfully for 15 years, but I don’t think I can keep my hands off it.

    The 2006 Chateau de Beaucastel was in the beginning of its perfect place – 15 to 20 or so years of age. It is all about balance – balance of fruit and tannin, of earth and sun, of soil and air. Simply delightful. This is the first of the case for me and I will try to only drink one a year from now on. Again, I doubt I will maintain that discipline.

    April 17, 2022 - Maybe bottle variation . When I opened this one, there was a stewed fruit , raisiny quality to the nose that never completely went away . Paired really well with braised lamb, sautéed new Potatoes and a spinach/orange/pine nut salad.
