  • From Swizerland. They say that best wines stay in the country of origin. Maybe this is mind blowing good! 🤩😛 #wine #winesnob #aiglelesmurailles

  • Step right up ladies and gents! Today you’re getting a two-fer!

It’s #tastingroomtuesday featuring A Tale of Two!

This week I present A Tale of Two Cabs from axr in Napa!  The first is a 2014 Napa Cab and the second a 2015 V Madrone Vineyard NAPA Cab. 
Both of these Cabs were exquisite but I had to keep my emotions in check cause I hear there’s no crying in Napa?

So here I am smiling on the outside, but on the inside I’m torn because these are two great Napa Cabs!

Who has been to axr? I can’t even mention their chips with aged Gouda.  Oh, here I go, getting all emotional AGAIN!

  • Moving down south from Champagne to Saint Bris in Cotes D’Auxerre, an appellation that used to belong in Chablis before it was removed in late 19th Century due to the phylloxera crisis that ravaged the area. The Goisot were one of the early adopter of biodynamic principles in Burgundy, the father and son team has been working this way since 1993 and now farms 43 individual vineyards this way. The Geules de Loup is from a single vineyard of the same name and is a 100% Chardonnay from 40 years old vines.
Tasted in Zalto Burgundy, the 2015 evokes alluring ripe citrus and popcorn aromas. The palate is rich with ripe fruits but it does comes off a tad too concentrated for me despite the chalky minerality backbone. A case of where the nose shows much more promises than the actual taste. I did however share this bottle with a few friends so only managed to tried 1-2 glasses and hence it may not have been at its best given how young this wine is, not to mention the riper, fuller 2015 vintage. Entirely my fault though for not decanting this wine prior to serving as there were encouraging signs from the last glass. Need to revisit alone as this has potential.
