  • NV Pierre Gerbais Champagne Grains de Celles Extra Brut - France, Champagne (7/30/2020)
    Pale gold color. Nose of fresh citrus, pear, white flowers, stone. Clean, crisp layers of white peach, pear, celery, flint, and hints of caramel on the palate. Stony spine. Moderately long finish of pure white fruit and chalk. Simple delight in a glass. From a 375. (90 pts.)
  • 1989 Olga Raffault Chinon Les Picasses - France, Loire Valley, Touraine, Chinon (7/29/2020)
    Utilizing the Ah-So pushed the cork into the bottle! Nonetheless a superb showing. Bloody, rusty garnet color. Nose of musk, plum blossom, cassis, currant, hints of stem. Layers of bulbous beef blood, wild sauvage, satisfying green leaf, and tangy red currant on the pliant palate. Nice acidity and smoothed tannin leading to a long finish of red currant fruit anchored in green notes deepening into concentrated grip and earth. Amazing paired with grilled lamb chops at Deception Pass SP. (93 pts.)
