Les Choisilles Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2018

Recommended by Union Square Wines, which is a nice looking shop, but definitely a bit overpriced and the traditional type of wine shop where their natural wine section is 4 bottles big and they love their tradition and pretension. Not opposed to it, just think it’s a blue ocean, why not be open to all possibilities of what something can be?

Long as it tastes good...

In any case, this was recommended to me as the traditional example of Chenin Blanc so decided to up the ante a bit and go for it.

Straw color. Champagne mangoes, slight thyme, orange blossom, and subtle jasmine.

Well-balanced. Simple in its structure, but being a writer I know when something seems simple, it takes a great amount of precision to achieve that nonchalant exceptionalism. Graceful, may be a better word.

Brioche, honeyed pecans, and a bit of tropical fruit and stone fruit. Light to medium acidity. It’s pleasant. Like laying in a hammock on a Monday night.

Awesome. Secret to USQ wines is their case discount is a whopping 20%. I only shop there when there are a few things I want to stock up on.

Poulprix Red Blend 2017

The picture doesn’t do it justice with the bright clear cherry life-saver red color. Tastes how it looks with tart cherries and wile raspberries - LOVED IT! — 2 hours ago

Brut Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2015

Elegant champagne alternative—at a tasty price. Nose is wonderfully fresh and teases an understated but complex palate, giving green apple, honey, ginger, wet stones, white flowers and a little fresh mushroom. — 8 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Mercurey Pinot Noir 2018

Mycket inbjudande vin. Fortfarande mycket röd frukt som vävs ihop med choklad, kaffe och lite läder. Bra struktur och syra. Lång fin eftersmak. Lite mycket frukt för att vara ett matvin, men gott att bara dricka. — 10 days ago

Clos Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 1988

Light gold. Looks young. Took 5 hours to open up and show its stuff. In hour 6 this was cruising. Saline and sea shells, wispy lemon fruit, some honey, some white stone. The guesses from the fellas were 2002 Rav Clos and 1996 Rav Valmur. Shows how these properly stored aged Raveneaus can age effortlessly. — 2 days ago

Fully La Combe d'Enfer Petite Syrah 2014

Finally an affordable Swiss wine that does not get lost in improbable blends or oak that takes up all the aromatic space! ... and the price is right. Well-worked “Petite Syrah” is a grape variety reminiscent of Syrah by its color and aromatic background. Dark color (purple-violet), brilliant, limpid. The mouth is fresh is less dense than a wine from the Rhône (for example) it is a fairly mineral expression, which tends towards Pinot Noirs or Gamay .. the mountain climate certainly has something to do with it. Nice bottle, I recommend.

Enfin un vin suisse abordable qui ne se perd pas dans des assemblages improbables ou du fût-de-chêne qui prend tout l’espace aromatique! le prix est correct. « Petite Syrah » bien travaillée est un cépage qui rappelle la Syrah par sa couleur et son fond aromatique. Robe sombre (pourpre violine), brillante, limpide. La bouche est fraîche est moins dense qu’un vin du Rhône (par exemple) c’est une expression assez minérale, qui tend vers les pinot noirs ou gamay.. le climat de montagne y est certainement pour quelque chose. Belle bouteille, je conseille.

@Mario Vaillancourt ils sont chers et très peu sont exportés car les suisses en raffolent.. Même en France on en trouve difficilement.
