Saint-Vincent Reuilly Sauvignon Blanc 2016

It's rather mineral on the nose : limestone, crushed oyster shells and there is a hint of lemon and some whiter flower. The palate is very well balanced. There is a strong acid backbone, some sitckyness/thickness on the sides. Some nice lemony notes carry on throughout the whole palate end during a fresh and almost flowery finish. Fresh, fun, not fancy but very fine. — 5 months ago

Apalta Vineyard Syrah 2006

I don’t know enough about Chile wine, but this bottle makes it clear I need to learn a lot more.

Beautiful Syrah with layers of dark fruit and spices. Good streak of acidity that keeps this wine in check. Hints of smoke on the finish. Made by John Duval, previously of Penfolds.

@Martin Sher Didn’t realise that John Duval the former winemaker for Penfolds Grange was involved in a project in the Columbia Valley. Also in Chile.

@Bob McDonald Interesting model at LS - star makers oversee individual offerings. For example Michel Rolland produces their merlot ‘Pedestal’. My fave might be their Pirouette which is made by Philippe Melka.

9.5

I absolutely loved it - not a krug or Cristal but it you like finesse and elegance and structure versus over the top powerful champagne like I do then this will speak to you - some sweetness but really not made that way - big smile - I think it is it’s prime drinking window — 6 months ago
