Clos de Malte Santenay Chardonnay 2011

Nose has oxidized yellow apple slice, dried papaya, candied pineapple, hay bale, cold candle wax, oak shavings and buttercream.

Palate has dried pineapple, dehydrated lemon, pineapple cake, limestone sand with a very long finish.

Lightest color of yellow in the Gabriel Glas, by far the least visually oxidized version of this wine of all prior. Fresh as a Spring day!

Mt. Veeder Chardonnay 2015

Oh happy day. Just my style and coming fully into its own. Beautiful nose of juicy just-ripe green orchard fruit and lemon. Buttercream and marcona almonds. Exuberant acid, focused, sunshiny, fleeting body despite 14.2%. — 2 months ago

Aromas & flavors of blended Golden Delicious/green apple, Meyer lemon yellow peach, golden plum, mango, banana, fresh herbs, wild flowers, spice box, and buttercream. Full bodied but not heavy on the palate due to the acidity keeping it afloat. Nice hints of saline tinged minerals. Lovely Chard!!

Finger Lakes Chardonnay 2013

Nose has grilled lemons, lemon buttercream, lime zest, distant brown butter, orange zest, dried apricot and (minor) struck flint.

Palate has dried lemon peel, pineapple core, buttercream, toasted walnuts, warm banana with faint sweetness on the very long finish with medium acidity. A great wine, decanted 4H and will appreciate at least another 3-4H of opening. Future bottles may be 2024-26+. Very good now, maybe one of the best FLX Chardonnay's I've experienced.

Partial Appassimento method for a portion of the grapes, really yields some extra character and depth to the wine. Only guy doing this in the FLX, Morten Hallgren, to the best of my knowledge. I'm coming to the altar here, it's the right way to handle his Chardonnay style. 👍

$24 direct from the winery cellar, to our cellar, to our glasses tonight. Being in the wine club has good benefits. 👌

@Severn Goodwin Interesting treatment of Chardonnay as Partial Appassimento. A first for me.

Domaine de Mourchon

Loubié Côtes du Rhône Villages Séguret Rosé 2019

Classic Provence strawberry shortcake notes with hints of water crackers, buttercream frosting, and lime pith on the nose. Subtle strawberry, lemon, and watermelon notes with hints of powdered sugar on the palate. Very well balanced Provence pink. Great by itself. — 19 days ago

Domaine de Montbourgeau

Brut Crémant du Jura Chardonnay

Very good non-champagne value bubbles from the Jura. Wonderful nose of lemon curd, green apple, buttercream frosting, yeast and ocean minerals on the palate. Fine bead. Very good. A little more acid and this would be great. — 4 months ago

Queen's Road White Walla Walla Valley Viognier Marsanne 2016

The absolutely gorgeous 2016 ‘Queens Road’ was aged for 22 months in 50% new French oak prior to bottling. This stunning wine takes on a hedonistic nose with banana, buttercream, green papaya and suggestions of nutmeg infused hazelnuts that all marvelously combine in the glass. Mouth-watering acidity and a sensational texture greet you alongside a strong veil of salinity. The combination of weight and freshness is outstanding. Once on the palate you are enticed by the seemingly endless layers of orchard and tropical fruits along with nutty and stony undertones complete this sensational wine. While a delight to savor right now, the 2016 ‘Queens Road’ still has a long life ahead of it. Drink 2020-2028- 94 — 4 months ago
