    January 5, 2023 - not blind
    One of my favourite wines of Laval. Fresh, precise, balanced and long clean finish. Great acidity structure. 92-93

    P red apple, citrus peel, little peach, chalk, little spice, tons of yeast
    F very long, tons of minerals, and lots of cut.

  • rawdealbuffy Likes this wine:

    December 13, 2022 - A sentimental wine as we opened it when we bought our first house. Showing more oxidative and nutty than I remembered. Brandy soaked orange, brioche, toasted hazelnuts. High acid. Gorgeous wine.

    December 7, 2022 - Commanderie des Costes du Rhone - Fall 2022 Intronization (Aquavit): Always a treat to end an evening like this with bubbles. Many thanks to Paul for making it happen. This was great. Just fresh and bright and easy to drink and really welcome after a lot of big red Rhones!

  • MC2 Wines Likes this wine:

    November 24, 2022 - Piemonte: Back to the truffling!; 11/24/2022-12/3/2022 (Wineries and various restaurants): Very tasty as always. Served a touch cold and so needed to Ket it open in the glass. It was all herbal and spice notes. Interesting style of champagne but always very enjoyable.

    (NV LAVAL Champagne CUMIERES 1er) Three Dear Friends, Three wines with limited availability so I have to lump them into one offer. This parcel is set to arrive in a week or two and all three wines will ship this fall. All have impeccable provenance directly from the winery cellar: 2003 Castello di Bossi "Corbaia"(W&S94)(GR3) (I know everyone is clamoring for as many 2003s as they can get (yeah right) but this happens to be quite interesting. Beware grey market bottles of this in the US with improper storage): ...and the second wine... 2007 Hubert Lamy St. Aubin "Derri_re Chez Edouard" 1er (BH91) EXTREMELY LIMITED (this wine is what Chardonnay is all about but so rarely is: bathed in the soil, vintage and stone of a specific place - not a specific oak tree. A wine that will make mincemeat out of 99% of the world's examples of the grape - a great effort in a tailor-made vintage for the best sites of St. Aubin): ...and the third... NV Georges Laval Champagne Cumieres 1er Brut Nature EXTREMELY LIMITED (from a 100% certified biodynamic vineyard, farmed BIO for nearly 40 years, this Champagne is amazing - end of story. With delicate and pinpoint notes of anise, nutmeg, ginger and what appears to be pewter coated lace, those that are experimental enough to take a chance on this feminine creation not be disappointed. I drank this last night with one of Australia's foremost experts on Champagne and he called me three times today to make sure I understood how good this wine was. I understand.)
