Wondering the same. Clos Cibonne has 0.0 g/l of RS.

Sorry, was doing too many things at once - I meant non-rose, not dry. Brain fart. Didn't mean to indicate Clos Cibonne had any residual sugar.

Scott's killing it right now, just put in an order for a couple bottles of Tarlant's Cuvee Louis at $70... they were going for 60% more at my local shop.

Same, took a lot of restraint to not go in for more of the cuvees

Oxidative notes just kill a wine for my tastes, so (e.g.) I'm not a fan of LdH pinks or whites. Cibonne is made sur voile - are there noticeable oxidative notes in the finished product? Is one cuvee better than the other for someone who's looking to avoid any trace of noticeable oxidation?

Just added in a bottle of the 2002 Catherine et Pierre Breton Bourgueil Les Perrieres to the case I'm putting together. Had this several months ago at a tasting with some of the guys at the wine shop I frequent most often. It was drinking very well. I believe it was available for $90+ at retail and Scott has it at $60.

How the heck does he do it?

The '67 and '71 Fontanafredda Barolos are fantastic.

Should I reconsider not having gotten a 750?

Also, does anyone have thoughts on the 2017 (or 2018) Robert Chevillon Bourgogne Rouge? Normally I wouldn't bite, but checking CT it seems like a solid value...

Really good pricing on Tempier rose today, especially the magnums. Also first time I’ve seen it offered in 375’s

Does Tempier show well young or is its value really with age?

I start drinking it a year after release. The 2018 is outstanding.

I think one year post release minimum too for me, but even better 2-3 years after release.
