Saumur Chenin Blanc 2021

First bottle of a batch that I ordered from my favourite wine merchant in France and that got delivered to my door in Poland.

An old friend that I have missed dearly. Apple, honey, waxy notes and some flowery scents too. This is multidimensional and very great. The palate shows a massive acid backbone, as expected, some stone fruits touches, a great width, a very long and fresh finish with a chalky mouthfeel almost. This is a great chenin. Oh have I missed this!

Beaujolais Nouveau Gamay 2019

Last bottle of wine before Karolina’s trip to Poland. Watching old polish shows (Idz na calosc, Randka w ciemno), having a really relaxing weekend — 3 years ago

Sopra Sasso Valpolicella Ripasso Corvina Blend 2014

This is a serious value (12,5€ or 16 USD in retail here in Poland) . Cherry, raisins, almonds very seductive nose. The palate is well balanced. Rather simple with some strong acid backbone, loads of ripe cherry with a sweet layer that bring some roundness to the overall feeling of this palate. Discreet tannins before a fresh finish with fruits. This is really easy going and confirming that I'm really into ripasso and amarone from veneto lately. I have a similar crush with it that I had a year ago with nice crus from Beaujolais — 4 years ago

La Voûte Saint-Vincent Morgon Gamay 2020

Wow! The value of this... 17 EUR a bottle, delivery to Poland from France included. This is a steal!

A gorgeous nose of cherry, wet soil, geranium, licorice... This is intense. The palate shows perfect balance with a nice and long acid backbone, some width and a great, almost crunchy texture with a soft mouthfeel that turns into a turbulent sea in midpalate, with tannins sharpening a bit and giving it another layer. The finish is fruit forward, almost umami, with that layer of turbulences gently brushing up that bright fruit to make it a truly enjoyable tasting experience. That's why you love cru Beaujolais...

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2016

The nose shows syrah usual traits : pepper, blackberry, there is even a bit of bacon in there! Definitely northern Rhone red. The palate is well balanced, there is a good acid drive in there, there is a bright fruit, some width, some matter, a good mouthfeel, lively tannins with a drying effect in mid palate and a long finish with fruit and pepper and that drying effect for quite a long time. I have been missing that wine for as long as we moved to Poland. I used to buy it from the grocery store downstairs back in Paris for 8 euro. I was so psyched to find it in the Wine shop downstairs here in Warsaw! As always, this is a solid CDR. — 2 years ago

Bone-Jolly El Dorado County Gamay Noir 2017

Very interesting nose with strawberry, gooseberry, cherry and leather. This is very different from any gamay I had ever tasted so far. The palate is marked by a very strong acid backbone and a very lively, almost electric mouthfeel. There are some touches of red berries all along, very few tannins but a drying effect kick in in in the rear and a very long red berry finish. Blind I would have said it's a trousseau from Jura. I like it nevertheless and this is probably the most interesting California wine I have tested thus far (but the good stuff rarely makes it across the pond and through to Poland) — 6 days ago

Zachowice Bacchus 2017

An herbal, floral nose with white flowers and a bitter citrussy thing like yuzu or bergamot orange. That is very peculiar and I like it. It's very subtile and discreet, not in your face at all. The palate is delicate with a first impression on the acid side, but there is more to it, with this citrus thing, a bit of weight on the width with a gentle touch and some roundness, and a fresh and long finish. I like it! It reminds of easy going, simple white German I had which were perfect a bit cooled down on hot summer nights. — 2 years ago
