Saint-Romain is always a bit different. Acidity, but also a buttery taste. Like it.

Unique. Direct press Gamay from Romain Chanrion (son of Nicole) rendering a white Gamay wine. The nose leads you to believe this will be crisp & mineral, but there is a delightful richness on the palate. Plenty of bright citrus & acidity for days, but also a fruity pear note which adds some complexity. A great wine to stick in either a Chablis or Chenin Blanc blond tasting as a ringer. Very nice — 8 days ago
70/30 blend of Malavasia Bianca and Albariño from my home state of Arizona. Grapes from Willcox, vinted in Jerome, bottled in Camp Verde. That’s a lot of trucking, folks. Yellow-green, excellent clarity, clean nose. Floral, honeycomb and citrus flavor, almost tart, almost dry, apricot-citrus finish with some skin astringency. 13.2% alc/vol suggests early harvesting. Exceeded my expectations. Present from my brother who had similar feelings about the wine, saying “You’ve got to try this”. Not great, but much better than you’d think — 14 days ago

Really good. Flavorful but light. — 21 days ago
So dark and rich, wouldn't you make the switch?
Impressively, almost uncharacteristically, dark for PN. Nose is all dense, crunchy red fruits, cinnamon, with a whiff of ozone/pool chlorine/dusty mineral. Frankly carnal in texture; fleshy and dense, with tannins so smooth that they belie new world origin.
Could be spectacular (almost auto-corrected to spextacular!) with the right food, though this could pass for Syrah.
