Chateau La Chaume Des Filles

Hubert Bouzereau-Gruère et Filles

Le Charmois 1er Cru Saint-Aubin Chardonnay 2015

Charmois, the working man’s Chassagne Montrachet, it is said. Very floral and citrus, butterscotch too. Great QPR. — 8 days ago

Domaine des Baumard

Savennières Chenin Blanc 2016

The Baumard family growing the noble Chenin at Rochefort in the Anjou for centuries, in 1953 they acquired a vineyard in the Quarts de Chaume, & in 1968, purchased acreage in Savennieres. Straw with full fruit and light spice aromas. On the palate ripe apple, pear & melon, complex, with vivid acidity. Lingering, ending with mineral and sweet honey character. Wow. A white that should age well.

One of my fav wines over the years. So great...

Maison Sylvain Loichet

Les Belles Filles Pernand-Vergelesses 2014

Gorgeous and expressive, this wine bursts with aromas of apple, nectarine, chamomile, and hints of vanilla and asparagus. Full bodied with a drawn butter note, easy to drink absent the cloying persistence of oak (well integrated), ending on pleasing acid and grilled pineapple. Long finish. Very pretty — 5 years ago

Domaine des Baumard

Clos du Papillon Savennières Chenin Blanc 2015

In 1953, Jean Baumard acquired vineyard in Quarts de Chaume, in 1968, purchased substantial acreage in Savennieres. Today Jean’s son, Florent, manages the winery. Aromas of green fruits, floral and flinty notes. On the palate green apple, pear, melon and slight nutty flavors, well balanced with acidity. Medium+ length ending, no fluttering with fresh juicy mineral, just like the butterfly on the label! Will age well if you can resist opening. — 3 years ago

Domaine Gilles Berlioz

Les Filles Vin de Savoie Chignin-Bergeron Roussanne 2016

100% Roussanne.

Nose...If I ever had a white that I could tell you was "oily" this is that wine. Caramelized honey, pear, guava and wet clay.

Palate is hazelnut butter, macerated pear, over-ripe apricot. F...this is an amazing bottle, I don't happen across Roussanne like this everyday, or like ever!

Hazelnut butter and oily for the win! Glad you enjoyed.

Lacoste-Trintignant

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée des Jeunes Filles Red Rhone Blend 2004

This is what French wine is all about - 2004 hand carried back from France; pouring into decanter, a reddish-brown golden caramel color sweet to the nose; after 20 mins it returned to a deep ruby red ; subtle, with hints of fruit - cherry, strawberry, cocoa dust and chalk - slight tannins - could go another 10 but delicious now. — 3 years ago

Château de la Guimonière

Coteaux du Layon Chaume Chenin Blanc 1997

Fully mature. Amber colour. Honey, caramel, apricotjam and Apple pie. Pinches of orange zest and almondpaste. First impression is very sweet and intense, but it finishes fairly fresh, elegant and well balanced.
Very good.
