Pale yellow with aromas of ripe white stone and citrus fruits with dried floral grassy notes, aged on lees for 5 months. On the palate flavors of rich apple and lemon with crisp acidity and pronounced mineral notes. Medium+ finish, ending with creamy citrus, herb and flinty mineral character. Good now and will improve over next several years! — 6 days ago
Superb nose with green apple, wax, pear, a tiny touch of honey and a tiny bit of reduction at first, that went away after a short while in the glass. The palate is very precise with a laser beam acid drive, some matter and a nice mouthfeel, apple and pear notes, and a long, clean and fresh finish with the same fruit notes. I had it along a nice scampi ravioles dish in fish espuma and it was a perfect pairing. — 5 days ago
A very old bottle bought back from a customer cellar. Foil suggests serving chilled or "ice cold," welcome to 80's era wine guidance.
Medium gold color. Nose is apples, slightly bitter apple pip/skin. With air shows some delicate/floral peach aromas. Balance is spot on with a good acid/sweet balance. Maybe this would be between sec and demi sec these days. There is a slightly bitter mid palate attack that echos an apple pip/cyanic character. Surprisingly good given character of cork, which refused to come out with an ah-so and retreated to the bottle. — 15 days ago
This is a very tasty Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley.
Lighter on the nose and dry on the palate, with medium plus acidity.
Showing limes, citrus, green apples, grapefruits, light earth and white pepper.
Showing nice complexity with a soft mouthfeel. Juicy and entertaining.
Better on the palate and simpler the nose.
Nicely balanced, crisp and refreshing, and good by itself or with food. A good party wine too.
I paired it with fresh oysters.
12.5% alcohol by volume.

Dark ruby color. Aromas of earth, Forrest Floor, violets, rose hips and dried herbs. Pallet is full of black fruit with a hint of leather. Little, if any, pyrazine is present. No oak. (Completely aged in Stainless Steel.) Juicy texture. This wine has a memorable rustic quality. Thanks for the gift, Kase. — a day ago
Richer #touraine #sauvignonblanc - jasmine, dried white flower, hay aromas - delicious on the tongue, pleasing viscous texture from lees aging, honeysuckle, touch of orange marmalade and hints of white pepper on finish. Plenty of acidity framing the whole experience. Intriguing, complex #loirevalley white from Domaine Paul Buisse. Righteous QPR #costco wine. — 3 days ago
