Il Bianco dell'Umbria Grechetto Blend 2017

Last fall, I had the distinct pleasure of tasting a wine from AnneSanti for the first time. On that occasion, it was the Rosso, served blind. It ended up being one of the more memorable wines of 2020! On this occasion, I was presented with the Bianco (not blind). The wine was very light in color. On the nose, minerals, linen, chamomile, white flowers, stony, citrus and honey. On the palate, I found it to be quite brisk but in a very good way with light stone fruits and citrus notes. There was really nice persistent acid with a long, mineral driven finish that worked so well with the smoked trout. This is a fantastic aperitivo. I want this wine outdoors on a warm day with Gabin, dZihan & Kamien and Gotan Project playing in the background accompanied by light Mediterranean fare and, most importantly, some good mates. Overall, having now tasted two wines from this producer, I am eager to try them all. — 11 days ago

Sonoma County Syrah Rosé 2019

This was a perfect wine for a dinner of Veracruz style red snapper. Crisp and dry, with flavors of strawberries, red raspberries, and Queen Anne cherries. — 6 days ago

Bourgogne Aligoté 2018

More great 2018 aligote. A bit more focused and long than the Esmonin from a few nights ago, but not quite as complex. — 15 days ago

Les Mourillons St. Gervais Côtes du Rhône Villages Syrah 2001

This is 20 years and you would not tell by the robe. Dark rubi color, asian spices and black cherries nose, more secondary tastes in a well wrapped envelope of minerality and tannins. Can stand easily another 10 years but a joy to drink now. Recommended ! — a month ago

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2018

Nice Bourgogne rouge. A little more savory, with red fruit playing secondary role. Easy drinking.

Clau de Nell Anjou Cabernet Franc 2012


Very nice balanced older Cab Franc. Very mature rather faded fruit laced with earthy notes that opened up. Good acidic texture and finish. Excellent with Amahs ribs and veggies. GL flash buy at 35. Next day even better after Eto and upping a point. Lively and fresh. 12ABV and biodynamic rescue of beaten down Anjou estate by Leflaive of Burgundy fame. Should have one left for a bit more aging — a month ago
