Teutonic Wine Company

Seafoam Alsea Vineyard White Blend 2020

This “white wine” by Teutonic drinks kinda like a cross between a rose and and orange wine, with a round and full mouthful, medium acid, and the slightest bit of RS that makes it so thirst quenching and lively. Interesting bottle. — 16 days ago

Cuvée Anniversaire 160 Ans Brut Blanc de Noirs

Duval Leroy brut Blanc de Noirs 160 Ans cuvée anniversaire. Honestly speaking, much better than I expected. A bit too much residual sugar for my liking, but still enjoyable. Round, plush and fruity. — 17 days ago

Sint Catharinadal

Auxerrois Blend 2018

Vintage 2018 | Is it thanks to climate change that wines from Northern Europe - Luxemburg, Belgium and my own country the Netherlands - can be quite astonishing. This monastery wine is made from Auxerrois, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris and has an seductive smell with hints from passionfruit, pear and sechuan pepper. The taste has predominantly a splashing citrusfruit with nice acidity. Very good effort. Paired with figs/ham as appetizer and a Liege Salad. — 9 days ago

I've heard about this one, but never been able to find in walk-around retail settings.

I have a funny feeling that it’s a “club” wine only. But I may be wrong.

Fireside Winery

Marengo Seyval 2020

A wine from Iowa. A first for me. And what a nice surprise. A really well made wine. This French hybrid does well in cooler weather and this is a really good example. A bit like a Pinot Grigio or Pinot Blanc. But not sweet and nothing foxy or weird. Really very enjoyable. — 18 days ago

Elk Cove Vineyards

Willamette Valley Pinot Blanc 2019

Surprisingly fresh aromas of tropical fruit (guava) with a flinty edge. Dry(ish) on the palate, with a pear flavour and a saline note that reminds me of a Manzanilla. No great acidity but lots of interest. — 10 days ago

Le Fond du Bateau Terroir de Chouilly No. 10 Grand Cru Blanc de Blanc

Spectacular Grand Cru grower Chardonnay from Chouilly. Medium gold in the glass. Meager, medium sized bubbles that dissipate rather quickly. Very zippy and lively from the jump. The nose is terrific with a little salt and herbs along with some toffee. Really nice citrus fruit leaps out of the glass. Buttered brioche and spice compliment.

Single vineyard Grand Cru fruit from a tiny plot called “Le Fond du Bateau”, the bottom of the boat. Bottled in June of 2010 and disgorged in May of 2018 with a dosage of 1 g/l to let the terroir truly shine. So bold and so full of personality. Racy acidity and distinctive minerality throughout. Nice depth and complexity here.

This really does get better and better as it evolves in the glass. The beautiful citrus expresses itself initially with peaches and green apples. Pears, apricots, and a nice bit of spice. Bold but oh so elegant simultaneously. This is long and very posh. An instant favorite and will be so much better down there road.
