2017 Château de la Negly "La Côte" Languedoc
Review Date: 08-28-2018
The Negly is beautifully balanced between sweet and savory notes with a super fine tannin structure. 2017 was a warm vintage and the resulting tannins are ripe and very easy drinking. It's a great combination of unctuous dark red and purple fruits and just touches of herbal complexity. This is a perfect wine for drinking now, bringing to a friends house, or opening when that surprise guest comes over. Crowd pleasing and sophisticated, but it fits right into the casual drinking budget.

2012 Louise Brison Brut Champagne
Review Date: 07-09-2018
I bought a case of the 2008, and a case of the 2009. I might have to get 2 cases of the 2012. I was stunned to realize this is the best release from Louise Brison I've tasted. The acidity is like a lightning rod and blows the 2009 out of the water, but in the 2012 it's backed up by an immense richness that is missing in the 2008. It's balanced, big, elegant, and powerful. An incredible wine!
