Domaine de la Colline

Chinon Cabernet Franc 2019

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. — 2 days ago

Sager & Verdier

Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2020

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.

91 points.

12.5% alcohol by volume.

$27.

Domaine de Beaumont

Le Facteur Su' L'velo Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2020

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. — 6 days ago

Domaine Paul Buisse

Touraine Sauvignon Blanc

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. — 4 days ago

L'arpent des Vaudons Sauvignon Blanc 2020

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! — 7 days ago

Château Moncontour

Moncontour Vouvray 1985

9.1

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.

Les Maisons Brulées

Dernier Né Pineau d'Aunis Gamay 2018

We have been searching for Pineau d’Aunis for several years since having some in France. Found this wine and it is amazing! Slightly effervescent with notes of raspberry and cassis. So glad we are able to taste this again! A very special wine! — 18 days ago

Soupçon de Fruit

Rose d'Anjou 2021

2021. Too hot and muggy to cook tonight, so this chilled rosé and leftover cold pizza to the rescue. My first thought was that the wine could use a little more acidity, but it ended up pairing well. — 2 days ago
