Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2014 Denis (Isabelle et Denis) Pommier Bourgogne with dinner last night. What a great $20 bottle of wine. I know @grapeylyle will admonish me for drinking this so soon, but this was ready to go and pure joy in a bottle. Bursting with exuberant cherry fruit and just a touch of herbaceousness. Maybe not the most complex burgundy, but a great weekday drinker that blows away much of the overpriced domestic stuff from CA or OR.
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.
