Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
Our lineup last night. Had the Richoux with besos calientes and the Samion and Sociando with filet de boeuf au poivre. All the wines were delicious, as was the food. The only item not pictured was a bottle of 2003 Christoffel Auslese with coconut cream pie (also delicious). Slam dunk evening of wine and food with the best of friends.
I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
