Last night at dinner with our friends who are visiting from Mexico:
N.V. Pierre Péters Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut Cuvée de Réserve - June 2011 disgorgement that is drinking very nicely in its youth (paired beautifully with two dozen Shigoku oysters)
1993 Kalin Cellars Chardonnay Cuvée Le Darryl - oxidized
2007 Olivier Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet - oxidized
2008 Walter Hansel Winery Chardonnay The North Slope Vineyard - more heavy and butterscotchy than I was in the mood for last night, but much better than another recent bottle
2013 Ceritas Chardonnay Heintz Vineyard - brought me down off the ledge; love these wines
2013 Ceritas Pinot Noir Porter-Bass Vineyard - I wanted to give our friend Norberto his first Ceritas experience. This was drinking very well with an hour decant- very elegant with loads of bright cherry and lots of floral nuances. I have only two bottles left, but that's okay- TLV has plenty. Speaking of...
We were pleasantly surprised to see three quarters of the TLV clan walk in to the club. They joined us for cocktails before dinner and we all ended up in the same dining room so we also got to taste TLV's 2011 Kutch Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast, which was drinking nicely as well, with plenty of darker fruit and cola.
TLV, did I miss anything?
We also opened a 2012 Liquid Farm Chardonnay Golden Slope and a NV Guiborat Fils Champagne Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru, but I don't know if any of those made it over to your table.
