Deep orange gold… the color of Jurançon or Sauternes (this is Vin de France). Honeyed dried apple on the initially shy nose. Joined on the medium full palate by stone fruit, dried unsweetened pineapple, and a firm, almost tannic mineral streak on opening that softens to a more velvety feel over time. Finish is moderate length and continues the palate. Dagueneau style in a wine from Le Sud-Ouest that, like his others, develops and changes over the course of a meal from steely with the starter, to dried fruitier with the entree, and finishing with a bit more roundness. Remarkably ready for pork, rich seafood, and cassoulet now, but will reward and continue to do so well into the early 2030s. — 2 months ago

Bright, pale straw. Initially shy, but inviting nose of underripe quince. Echoed on the medium palate with an intense mineral streak and hints of burnt citrus rind on opening. As the wine develops in the glass, the mineral note subside and rustic fruits come to the fore. Medium plus acidity supports it all the way through to the moderate finish. This is a wine that can support the entire meal: mineral notes parallel light starters, fleshy pomes buttress the main course, and more opulent stone fruits finish with soft cheese or pastry. Rustic fare pairs particularly well. Drink now through 2028. — 3 months ago
