Élevée Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Nice, drinkable young Pinot. Balanced acidity. A lot of minerality and earthy flavors, mushrooms and damp leaves/rocks. Cherries, roses, and hint of menthol. — a month ago

La Chablisienne

La Fief de Grenouilles Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2006

One of the absolute best white wines I’ve had so far this year to date was this extraordinary Grand Cru Chablis from 2006. I think we caught this wine at the absolute perfect time to drink. Grenouilles is French for frog, more on that below.

The color on this was perfect, a vibrant light gold and yellow, watery at the rim. The nose was also in perfect condition, notes of flint, crushed oyster shell, a touch of smoke, allied with fresh Asian pear and crisp Fuji apple. The wind absolutely jumped out of the glass, the nose was so pronounced. The palage took it another level up with a perfect expression of what the nose was giving, all the while wrapped up in a perfect medium bodied majorly dense and complex wine. Medium plus acidity and very long on the finish.

Formed in 1923, la Chablisienne is a co-op winery based of course in Chablis. As I have gone deeper into the rabbit hole of wine I tend to find these amazing co-ops which I wish I could have known about earlier as the wines are so impeccably good and priced so reasonably well. They produce something like 30 different wines off from the Chardonnay grape and all from vineyards within the AOC borders of Chablis.

The Grenouilles climat is the smallest of the 7 Chablis Grand Cru climat at 9.38 hectares. It has soils that consist of upper and middle layers of Kimmeridgian, alternating with limestone and marl that are studded with fossilised seashells.

The first vines to grow at the bottom of this hill were close to the River Serein and frogs no doubt came to keep the winegrowers company.

Keeling-Schaefer

Puzzle Vine Picpoul Blanc 2016

Stumbled on this at an Arizona wine festival when visiting Phoenix. Winegrowers aren’t sure if Arizona is a good locale for this variety, but God bless them they are trying to get the viticulture right. Pale white, excellent clarity. Citrus notes in nose with a hint of vegetal or green pepper. Rounded mouthfeel, orange, orange peel and melon flavors with minerality. Dry, lemon peel, lime and slight astringency in finish. Decent stuff. 192 cases made — 7 months ago

Vintage2017 Third year this wine was made by twenty young winegrowers from cooperative Dagernova, only 6000 bottles. Playful wine, frivolous. Would be excellent for lunches. — 21 days ago

Lucien Albrecht

Tradition Alsace Pinot Gris 2017

The history of the Albrecht family as winegrowers can be traced back to 1425 with Romanu Albrecht, who was established in the town of Thann. Nice pale color, fruit and oily citrus aromas. On the palate peach and lime citrus flavors, delicate floral spice, vivid acidity on medium finish. Nice! — 2 months ago
