Over the long weekend

2019 Florian Andre La Belle Etoile rose (VDF)
Quite light, fresh raspberry and cherry, good aperitif. B/B-

With Grilled ribeyes, potatoes, salad
2001 Edmunds St. John Peay Syrah
Dont think Ive ever had this bottling before, found in cellar, probably bought from Steves library sale. Big for ESJ, rich sweet blackberry fruit, some leather and mushroom. Great with the steaks, a bit too much for me when food is done. Still a nice wine in a Syrah meets Zin style.B

With oysters, grey sole, rice, bok choy, salad
2018 Brocard Boissonneuse Chablis
Straightforward, balanced and flinty, textbook if not write home to mama. B

On two afternoons we had socially distanced friends for canapes (hummus, olive, taramasalata, smoked mussels) and a glass or two

2019 La Bastide Blanche Bandol Rose
Herbs, cherries, and nectarine. Pale but with some power, pretty tasty, especially on second day. B+

On a Zoom reunion with Bordeaux group
NV Marguet Shaman 15 Extra Brut Rose
Zero dosage, yet not the least bit sternor austere. Cherries with citrus and flower notes, a bit of brioche, good length, elegant mousse. A-

Pizzas (pepperoni, feta/artichoke/olive)
2012 Passopisciaro
Dark fruit and kirsch, velvety texture, but comes across as hot and a touch volatile to me (I think I liked before) B-/C+

No big Memorial party this year, but trying to keep a couple traditions. Hot dogs for lunch, then for dinner couple racks of St. Louis ribs, grilled clams with lemon/fried garlic, sesame noodles, and asparagus (well latter 2 arent part of our usual Mem Day menu). Opened the 1974 Sterling Cabernet Sauvignon. Red and black cherries, smoke and a bit of green herb, complex and long. No hurry. A-

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine, B a good wine, C
drinkable. Anything below C means I wouldn't drink at a party where it was only choice.Furthermore, I offer no promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.

Always been a fan of Brocard. The 1996 1er Beauregard, and GC Le Clos
live in memory. Best Chardonnay I've drunk.
The no oak winemaking agrees with me.

Have some of the 2018 village Chablis and rather disappointed.
Very tropical fruited, soft acidity suggests very warm vintage.
