(WT110420-01) 18 BRAVIUM WILEY VINEYARD ANDERSON VALLEY BLANC DE NOIRS  $39.99
11/04/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (U.S. WEST COAST) 12.5%; vineyard 9 miles from the Pacific. A logically fruity California sparkling pinot noir. Shades of yeast autolysis, but not as impact-ful as in the Roederer Estate wines./ Very dry--that's impressive. The red fruit continues to show and to give body. A very satisfying mouthful that for its body and dryness would be best suited for the dinner table. 16.8.

(WT110420-02) 19 RIAS BAIXAS CONDADO ALBARINO, BODEGAS EIDOSELA  $15.99
11/04/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (SPAIN) 12.5%; subregion on the Mino, 30 miles from the Atlantic. Brisk and bracing, almost tonic. Sharp lemon peel aroma. Such pizzazz./ Lemon peel, juice, pulp. Some stone fruit padding beneath. Ocean breeze minerality. Zesty, tart finish. I'm thinking fresh fish. Well liked by the group. 16.7.

(WT110420-03) 19 CHABLIS, DOMAINE SEGUINOT-BORDET  $25.99
11/04/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE BURGUNDY) 12.5%; est. 1590; 25-40 year old vines. Chalk dust. Dusty calcaire feature. Apple and citrus chardonnay aspects too. Terroir driven chardonnay as only Chablis can interpret it./ Very juicy citrus joins calcaire grip, texture. Dry but not austere. It's to the point Chablis: lovely, pure, classic. Plenty of extract behind it too. Well liked by the group. 16.9.

(WT110420-04) 18 BOURGOGNE CHARDONNAY VIEILLES VIGNES, ALBERT BICHOT  $18.99
11/04/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE BURGUNDY) 13%; est. 1831; 25-35 year old vines of Cote de Beaune and Hautes Cotes de Beaune; 20% barrel aged. That's a rounder, fuller chardonnay interpretation from grounds farther south. Flattering rusticity of its Hautes Cotes component. The barrel aging shows, adding breadth to the aromatic presentation./ Medium bodied. Lower acidity than the Chablis--no surprise. Quite a satisfying mouthful. 16.3+.

(WT110420-05) 17 MULHEIMER SONNENLAY RIESLING KABINETT FEINHERB, WEINGUT MAX FERD. RICHTER  $21.99
11/04/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (GERMANY) 10.5%; off dry; Parker 93/100. Dazzles, penetrates, soars. Slate saturated riesling. This wine has prodigious intensity./ Light sweetness foiled by tangy acidity. Such delivery, such persistence. Masterful. The group was enthralled. 17.4+.

(WT110420-06) 19 CHIANTI CASTIGLIONI, FRESCOBALDI  $15.99
11/04/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (ITALY) 13%; mostly sangiovese, with a dab of merlot. That's a fetching little beauty of a sangiovese. All up front appeal in 2019. Dried cherry, citrus peel, and tar--the qualities I like Tuscan sangiovese./ Mmm, flavorful, come hither. Bright acidity in harmony with light sangiovese glycerol. One sip invites another. Light dusting of tannin keeps it honest. 16.5.

(WT110420-07) 17 APOLLONI WILLAMETTE VALLEY PINOT NOIR  $21.99
11/04/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (U.S. WEST COAST) 13.5%; Dijon and Pommard clones; aged in French oak barrels. Cool, fresh, uplifting, ventilating Oregon take on pinot noir. Kiss of toasted French oak creme brulee adds to its aromatic profile./ Suave, appropriately medium bodied, and impressively flavorful. The oak has definite influence, adding nuances of toast, brandy, brown spices, and pipe tobacco casings. Fills the bill at a reasonable price. 16.7.

(WT110420-08) 19 COTE DE BROUILLY GRAND CRU, CHATEAU THIVIN  $27.99
11/04/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE BURGUNDY) 14.1%; est. 1877. Oh my, oh my, is that a sweet gamay nose! More immediate and forthcoming than the majestic 2018. Lovely depth of aroma./ Not as full bodied as the 2018--at least not yet. Still, year after year, this pretty much defines the Cote de Brouilly genre. I imagine it will broaden and deepen with more bottle age. In fact, following additional aeration, the group found it already more expansive than did I upon opening. Well liked. .16.9+.

(WT110420-09) 18 CHATEAU LA TOUR DE BESSAN, CRU BOURGEOIS, MARGAUX  $39.99
11/04/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE BORDEAUX) 14.5%; Marie Laure Lurton, proprietor; at Soussans; 54% merlot, 43% cab sauv, 2% cab franc, 1% petit verdot; 10-14 months in barrels. Improving each quality vintage as its vines mature. There's a Margaux charm aspect and cabernet on gravel black currant./ Close, tart, tannic upon opening.. Hopefully this will open up as it airs. The material is there. And it did to considerable extent, offering on the palate more fruit, more oak, and that lovely cabernet cedar suggestion. Widely appreciated by the group, with the caveat it needs more cellar time. 16.6+.

(WT110420-10) 18 WATERMILL ESTATE CHANCES R COLUMBIA VALLEY RED  $17.99
11/04/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (U.S. WEST COAST) 14.5%; winery in the Milton-Freewater district on the Oregon side of the Walla Walla Valley; 50% Walla Walla merlot, 25% malbec, the rest carmenere and petit verdot. 11 months in barrels, 25% new. Right away, that New World fruit sweetness makes an impact. Seems more powerful too, though same alcohol. Then it segues into a subtler, more complex range of nasal aromas and textures./ Sweetly fruity yet not to excess. The barrel vanillin factor adds more complexity. Such a generous wine, yet worth contemplating for its varied bounty of tastes. 16.8+.

11/04/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE MEDITERRANEAN) 14.5%; half each grenache, syrah; from vineyards near the Chateauneuf estate. Glowing ruby red./ Alert, fresh, penetrating, and soaring set of fruit, flower, garrigue, and terroir perfumes. The aromatic assault just won't quit./ Medium bodied. Flavors flow easily. This is just as delicious as it is complex. Shows the 2019 way. 16.9.

(WT110420-12) 18 COTES DU RHONE RESERVE, CHATEAU MONT REDON  $16.99
11/04/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE MEDITERRANEAN) 14.5%; 80% grenache, 20% syrah; from estate vineyards near Orange and Roquemaure. Blacker fruit. More substance and solidity. Less about aromatics and more about heft. Oh, it's no sluggo though. Just a packed and potent wine representative of vintage, terroir, and winemaker./ Sweet fruit and alcohol assuage the palate. Flavor and texture profiles packed in. Well balanced and mid-term cellar worthy. 16.8+.

11/04/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE BORDEAUX) 12.5%; 80% semillon, 18% sauvignon blanc, 2% muscadelle; Gold Medal - Concours Mondial des Feminalise. Wow, pineapple, husk, tupelo honey, singed orange peel, and much, much more. I'm afraid I'm running out of time to take it all in./ Succulent, honeyed fruit, stature, and surprising sense of power at 12.5%. Sweetness suppresses full display. Will improve for decades. 17.2+.
