Finger Lakes winemaker. I will never turn down a nice Zinfandel or Champagne but my passion is Gewürztraminer and Riesling.

Tastes very youthful still. A bit of mercaptan-y type reduction, but that's hardly a fatal flaw. Wish we had decanted it. Or saved it for another decade. — 2 years ago
Had this a few weeks ago but only putting it into Delectable now. Amazing wine, what else is there to say? Baumard's Quarts de Chaume always delivers. Straight up delicious, the sweetness is perfectly balanced with a serious acid kick and the nose has developed profundity over time. At 15 years old, the wine is in a good place but could keep going. — 2 years ago
Meh. I mean, did you see the varietal composition? Competently made. And how many wines do you drink from Quebec? — 2 years ago
I'm a big fan. If you close your eyes and don't pay attention too closely, you could be forgiven for thinking this was Savenniers. Still very much alive, the nose has the signature Chenin honeyed note to go with a lovely nuttiness and loads of minerality. Complex, interesting, and intellectual. Makes me think I should drink more dry Vouvray. — 2 years ago
Ever heard of the Symphony grape before? Yeah - me neither. Apparently it's a UC Davis cross between Muscat of Alexandria and Grenache Gris, originally made in 1948. Is it delicious? You know what, it is. Unsophisticated but absolutely a pleasant little drink. A bit sweet for my taste, without the acid to keep it lively. But it's fun a. Interesting and worth picking up. — 2 years ago
