With Covid-19 and the country in extended lockdown, mass economic shutdown & unemployment, one has extra time to enjoy some extra bottles, explore their creative side & dabble in a third career. You can now not only follow my notes but, also my wine inspired landscape design. Here are some of my first creations. Strong beginning huh? I think I have a bright future after this is all over. The nose reveals; lemon chiffon/meringue, lemons, lime zest, green apple, just ripe pineapple, grapefruit, green melon, some slightly bruised golden apple, lychees, cream, vanillin, very light caramel, elegant, soft chalkiness, volcanics, sea fossils/spray, bread dough to baguette with yellow florals, spring flowers & jasmine. The body is rich with beautiful mousse & excellent micro-oxygenation. lemon chiffon/meringue, lemons, lime zest, green apple, just ripe pineapple, grapefruit, green melon, some slightly bruised golden apple, lychees, white peach, cream, cream soda, vanillin, very more caramel, elegant, soft chalkiness, volcanics, sea fossils/spray, medium white spice (ginger)with just a touch of palate heat, bread dough to baguette with yellow florals, spring flowers & jasmine. The lively, delicate acidity is excellent. The rich, well polished & balanced finish delicious & even throughout with nice, delicate, palate penetrating white spice that persists minutes.

Happy birthday Christina & Hedy. Kicking off the celebration with Bollinger & white cheeses. Beautiful & well balanced reductive & oxidative style. Consistent & always delivers.

Something to pair with cupcakes from the Buttery Bakery...Carrot Cake, Rum Custard with Coconut, Red Velvet and Dark Chocolate. Everything the Buttery makes is near perfect. Excellent finish to a great evening! Thanks James & Christina for hosting. Photos of; the House of Bollinger, caves with library bottles we’d all like to get our hands on, one of their barrel coppers and Grand Cru vineyard.

Thanksgiving dinner part II. Always need to kick it off with Bubbles. Previous notes apply. Nice cuvée at just under $50.

@Plate&Bottle Second Course: Green Salad, Shaved Apple, Parmesan, Honey Walnut & Lemon Vinaigrette. Acid meets acid in a beautiful tug of war. Lemon, nuts, honey and citrus all get along very well. So good! If you live in & around the greater Bay Area, you owe to yourself to attend one of the dinners Hedy holds 4-5 times a year. Not only is the food amongst the very best we had, the people that attend and environment are as equally good. Find Hedy @Plate&Bottle

Good, just not enough depth and richness for my taste.

I’ve had this many times but, never just sat and enjoyed full bottle with Sofia and pick it apart to write detailed notes. A great Costco price on this Cuvée has changed that for tonight. The nose reveals; bruised, green & golden apple without skin and a hint of tartness, touch of of apple cider, Bosc pear, pineapple, lemon/lime zest, quince, cream soda, vanillin, very light white spice, caramel notes, great chalk, sea fossils and spray, bread dough, spring flowers, jasmine and yellow lilies. The body is full and lively. Some @Severn Goodwin might want to decant this one. The acidity is fresh, big, yet restrained on the long set. Bruised, green & golden apple without skin a hint of tartness, touch of of apple cider, Bosc pear, pineapple, lemon/lime zest, quince, more cream soda on the palate, vanillin, very light white spice with a tad of palate heat, caramel notes, great chalk that really pops, saline, haunting iodine notes, sea fossils and spray, really nice grey, fine, grainy volcanic minerals, light woodiness, bread dough, spring flowers, jasmine, citrus blossoms and yellow lilies. The long finish is, rich, well balanced, polished and persists minutes. Really hitting its mark tonight. Photos of; the House of Bollinger (007 James Bond), the library area, their miles of chalky caves and one of their Grand Cru Vineyards.
