Château Cantemerle is a fifth-growth estate in the Haut-Medoc appellation. A blend of 50% Cabernet and 40% Merlot, aged 12 months in 50% new oak. From a good Bordeaux vintage, now perhaps near the end of its lifespan. Deeply colored, with a mature bouquet of sweet red fruit, iron, and mushroom ragout.

A Burgundy Wine Dinner, featuring the wines of Domaine Dublère, at @tabledonkeystick, hosted by @flickwine.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What a wonderful time! Fives flights of white and red burgundies, paired with some amazing dishes. Thank you to Peter and Susie Mesrobian, David Larson, Matt Sussman, and especially to Blair Pethel for a memorable evening. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As an American political journalist turned Vigneron, Mr. Pethel is a gifted storyteller, and it was a pleasure to hear him describe his winemaking journey and his excellent wines.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The wine of the night for me was the very special 2004 Corton-Charlemagne, from Pethel’s very first vintage. The beautifully mineral Chassagne Montrachets (from lieux-dits on the same hillside) and the elegant Beaune “Blanches Fleurs” were also favorites.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🥄 My friend John rolls into town. I take him to #tabledonkeystick. @hermannshoehle blinds him on Penfolds. We feed him latkes. Open back vintage Enfield. He eats the burger. Breaks his palate (sorry not sorry) on beer cheese with the Chave. We delve into Gattinara. And it's not yet 10 PM. Welcome to Chicago, @enfieldwineco. #terroirtuesday #sippinwithsuss #enfieldwines #makeportraits #thoseduckwingstho

Another killer dining experience in Chicago. Thanks for the recommendation @chicagowineselect

“I serve your Beaune to all my friends, but your Volnay I keep for myself.” – Voltaire
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jean-Yves Devevey’s estate is based in the village of Demigny, in the northern Saône-et-Loire. He produces red and white wines from vineyards in the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune, the appellations of Beaune and Volnay, and from Rully in the Côte Chalonnaise. His vineyards are farmed organically.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Domaine Devevey 2015 Volnay comes from three lieux-dits – La Gigotte, Les Famines, and Les Pluchots – at the bottom of the Chaignot hill. The wine is aged eighteen months in oak (up to 30% new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is a precocious Volnay, with elegant aromas of Bing cherries, sandalwood, rose petals, and pink peppercorns, and a long, silky finish.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Another #terroirtuesday at @tabledonkeystick, featuring the wines of Weingut Prager, a leading producer in Austria’s Wachau Valley region.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These are dry to slightly off-dry wines, made in the Smaragd (pronounced “Sma-rocked”) style, a classification that refers to the best, most age-worthy wines of the region. The selections we tried were from the celebrated Achleiten and Klaus vineyards, two of Austria’s greatest crus, containing some of the oldest vines in the Wachau.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The younger Rieslings were clear and crisp, with notes of green apples, grapefruit, and smoky slate. The Gruner Veltliner was bright and jubilant, with flavors of apricots, kiwifruit, and black pepper. The aged Rieslings had developed aromas of petrol and acrylic paint, with underlying flavors of quinces, chamomile, and cloves. It was fascinating to sample these wines together.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Back to front, the wines were:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Prager Riesling Smaragd Klaus, 1999
Prager Riesling Smaragd Achleiten, 2000
Prager Riesling Smaragd Klaus, 2015
Prager Riesling Smaragd Achleiten, 2015
Prager Gruner Veltliner Smaragd Wachstum Bodenstein, 2015

Mature Burgundy, in magnum, by Monthélie-Douhairet-Porcheret, an historic estate in the Côte de Beaune, owned by the Douhairet family. The winemaker is André Porcheret, known for his exceptional work at Domaine Leroy and Hospices de Beaune.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The "Clos du Meix Garnier" Monopole 2008, from a four-acre enclosed vineyard in the village of Monthélie, situated between Volnay and Meursault. Beautiful and graceful.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The "Cuvée Miss Armande" 2010, from several parcels in the Les Plantes and Les Longène lieux-dits. More substantial, with bright red fruits and game.

#terroirtuesday on the patio with all of the wine. not pictured: the patio, or all of the wine. we drank deeply, never fear, but this was too pretty not to share. 🌼 magic in the kitchen these days. #invisiblewinearc #foodporn, cucumbers with chanterelle | buckwheat | radish | viola flower | vanilla edition #noradishemoji #tabledonkeystick #sippinwithsuss #93points

Delicious duck, strawberry and beet salad, and foie gras #alpineeuropean ⭐️

Großes Gewächs night at @tabledonkeystick with the usual suspects. What we learned last night: @hermannshoehle remains a happy fan of RS but did not find the GGs as unapproachable or indigestion inducing as perhaps first feared; there is great variation between vintages from the same producer (light years of differences between 10 and 13 Schäfer-Fröhlich Felsenbergs, for example); and Riesling truly does go with everything. Fun night of friends and #winestudy. 👍🏼 Big thanks to #tabledonkeystick for hosting a decidedly 93 point sort of evening. #sippinwithsuss

We are open tonight with all the usual treats. We will be closed for the holiday tomorrow and Wednesday.

A @ch_mariecourtin 2012 "Efflorescence" Blanc de Noirs Champagne. This is a single-vineyard, grower #champagne from the Côte des Bar, an area which is closer (geographically and geologically) to Chablis in Burgundy than to Épernay. Grapes are farmed biodynamically, and the wine is aged in neutral oak barriques with no dosage. Focused aromas and flavors of green apples, quinces, and white flowers. A treasure from the curated wine list at @tabledonkeystick in Bucktown, Chicago. #wine #chicagoeats #bucktown #tabledonkeystick

Sociando mallet 1995. One of the best wines I've ever tasted. @tabledonkeystick (matt and Jamie) thank you for a great night. #bordeaux #tabledonkeystick #chicago #food #wine

🥖🐽🧀🍷 that time on Tuesday when I got the #meatsweats and drank all of the Poulsard with @randymy. that was good. #terroirtuesdaythrowback #meatsweats #sayfromage #foodporn, foie gras torchon edition (even better on a latke) #tabledonkeystick

🍷👃🏼 Weightless and pure. (both these guys and the wines...) Farmhouse chardonnay, as @_glouglou_ says. Arbois bottes rouges for the win tonight. That Poulsard is just....yeah. #terroirtuesday #makeportraits #tabledonkeystick #sippinwithsuss #lesbottesrouges #jeanbaptistemenigoz #jurajurajura #naturalwine #ouf!

There is nothing quite like a vertical of liquid gold @yquem_official to flatter a gray stormy day. We hopped puddles and soaked shoes to join @hermannshoehle and @tabledonkeystick for the inaugural bicentennial celebration of these gorgeous wines: The Yquem Dinner. Absolutely beautiful pairings from @tabledonkeystick with each flight - pro tips: elevate latkes with a swipe of foie torchon to ensure complete artery blockage. Cleanse palate and rinse liver between flights with champagne. 🍾 And poach the lobster in sauternes as well, so much so that you wish for a tiny coupe of the sauce to sip on afterwards. A triumphant tour of vintages 76-01 last evening with good friends, new and old.

🍾 because you're never too young or adorable for Laherte. #butfirstchampagne #lahertefreres #terroirtuesday #tabledonkeystick #alfresco #gobulls #sippinwithsuss

Flights of fancy, or in this instance, blind flights of 95 Bordeaux as well as accompanying Bordeaux-y imposters. A challenging exercise any day, but with a few thrilling plot twists and turns last evening that made the numbers all go to eleven. When - in a randomly determined, double blinded lineup - do you end up with two 95 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalandes side by side, for example, that show like entirely different wines at first Bordeaux blush? 😳 With the exception of a 94 Arrowood cab sauv that crashed the party, these were all 95s (and not all from Bordeaux either, sneaky Clos Vougeot!) and to experience them all together was just tremendous. 🍾🍷🔥 #sippinwithsuss #tabledonkeystick #blindbordeaux #winestudy (and for @singlevintagefan - le voilà: #winearc™) #chicagowine #wineporn
