2014 Domaine des Malandes Chablis 1er Cru "Fourechaume" Lovely nose of peaches and minerals. Unctuous fruit, but cut by minerality. Peaches, pears, citrus. Perfectly balanced acidity. Mineral and citrus notes came out more with air. Lingering fi

2015 Alain Gautheron Chablis Cuvee Emeraude Lightly floral nose with lemon and minerals. Stone fruits, honey, citrus on the palate. Bit minerally to start, but the minerals and the stone fruits (peach) come out more as it warms and gets air. Aust

I've had earlier versions of this wine. Not many albarinos from California. Artesa in Carneros makes a pretty one. Brecon is the old Norman Winery, home to the "Monster" zin, and it was. Mr. Norman passed away and the new owners took over; forget

It means I was typing on an iPad. The woman from the winery said they should be good now and for another 10 years. We tried one last night. Wow! Not much nose yet, but the flavors are really intense. We poured it with a Coravin and are leaving t

Trying Douro wines locally was a mixed bag. Total Wine had a nice lineup of Douro wines but were too oaky and too New World-y for me. But the underlying material was solid and might age into nice wines. From two local stores, the most expensive, La

Luigi Alessandria Barolo 1970 We mostly poured this out. It was sherried or maderized, however you say it. Yet a sip 24 hours later in a partially corked bottle revealed itself to be drinkable (barely?). I could have left it out longer to decant but
