2019 Vintage - really nice for my friends that think I spend too much money on wine - I submit this wine - about the same price as NZ Sauvignon Blanc but really nice - last Vintage was a little low on acidity but this vintage is solid and inexpensive- really like it for the price — 22 days ago
The wine of choice tonight I have opened is the 2019 Jean-Max Roger Cuvée Marnes et Caillottes Sancerre. From the Loire Valley Bué, France.
On the nose there is lime, grapefruit, melon, hawthorn, flint and minerality.
On the palate is lime, gooseberry, grapefruit, lemon, smokey flint and minerality.
This wine is light to medium bodied with a fresh clean mouthfeel, medium + to high acidity with a long citrus mineral finish. I hooe everyone has had a wonderful weekend? With the week ahead lets all stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 12 days ago
When I went to open this wine for a friend who contributed to my wine education during the early years he immediately said, "Not until it was at least a decade on .” I shrugged my shoulders and buried it. I understand now. I had concerns as there was something floating around in the bottle. In the mouth it felt 3-D but never heavy. Flavors of watermelon , peach , red berries, and flavors quite frankly I had never experienced in a wine or could identify. At times it showed like a cocktail one would get on the beach , at other times like a complex sour ale. I feel confident in its youth it had a higher level of sweetness but like a great Riesling it perfectly integrated. A lingering juicy finish. I realize this wine would not be for everyone but for me one of my most memorable wine experiences and what I love about wine.. Honestly, my score is irrelevant. — 15 days ago
Nose has sliced early season cherry, freshly cut hay field, dry chalk, cold raspberries and orange zest.
Palate has dried raspberries, ripe tart cherry, warm sourdough bread, moist limestone and orange peel. A very fun wine, 2020 vintage, the first we've had not a Nouveau!
Pre-birthday dinner for our dear COVID bubble friend; we've only allowed one of our close friends into the house for almost the past year, tonight we're celebrating that he's one year older than me. 😉 — 20 days ago
