White Blend

Skin Macerated White 2019

From the June wine share, IIRC. Sour apple, cherry blossoms, then yeah just lots and lots of apples lol, slightly dank but I like it 🤔 To accompany grilled pork and corn 🌽 Update: as this warms up, it becomes a “fall wine”. I wish I’d saved this because it’s difficult to drink during these hot days 😔 — 4 days ago

Philippe Fontaine

Cuvée Prestige Brut Champagne Blend

This bottle was provided by a friend at a recent outdoor social gathering. A very unusual blend of 40% Pinot Blanc, 35% Pinot Noir, 5% Pinot Meunier and 10% Chardonnay. In fact, I can’t recall ever having a champagne that was blended with more than three of the seven permissible varieties. I wish I had more time to spend with this wine but the setting wasn’t very conducive to a thorough analysis. That being said, I took some brief notes. Popped and poured; consumed under an hour. A pleasant mix of pear, lemon, citrus blossom with chalky minerals. The finish was round and quite saline…and rather delightful! Almost quaffable. This wine had a texture that sort of played with my ability to accurately judge the acidity but I settled on medium+…but I think the acid is pretty sneaky. The finish was long and satisfying. Probably my favorite bottle from Philipe Fontaine to date. No disgorgment date stated on the label. — 7 days ago

Nice. Look for Perseval-Farge, they have a bottle (Les Goulats) that includes a majority of the odd varietals (Arbanne, Petit Meslier, Fromenteau aka Pinot Blanc/Gris).

@Severn Goodwin interesting. I’ll keep an eye out. I recently read that Duval-Leroy has been periodically releasing a 100% Petit Meslier since 1998. Not sure any of it makes it to the States.

Ovum Wines

Big Salt Elkton White Blend 2019

Very pale yellow-white, excellent clarity, some small bubbles in solution. Not much in nose, Vanilla-floral, candied citrus, slightly tart, almost thin mouthfeel but tasty. Almost dry, but not quite. Malic aftertaste. Well made entry level white table wine, fine for sipping too — 13 days ago

Ca' del Bosco

Cuvée Prestige Franciacorta Chardonnay Blend

Ca’del Bosco, Franciacorta, Cuvée Prestige, NV, Extra Brut, ABV 12.5%. 🇮🇹

Here is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Nero varieties, with a dosage at disgorgement introducing only 1 gram of sugar per liter, making this an Extra Brut sparkling wine (6 g/l max), coming from Franciacorta DOCG in the Lombardy region of Italy. Franciacorta sparklers are known for being produced with a second fermentation in the bottle and prolonged aging on the “lees” á la Méthode Champenoise. 🍾🥂

This is a beautiful representation. It’s pale gold, bone-dry, and offers toasty, bready notes next to tart, youthful peach, pear, and apple, lemon pith, blanched almonds, desiccated white flower, and wet slate. 💕

This wine is bright, elegant, and focused. It could cut through butter and is a delicious pairing with creamy, soft cheeses.👌👌👌

Cheers!

Alma Gist Ranch Estate White Blend 2016

Just revisited 2016, glad I knew to hold onto a bottle. With holding a year or so, obtained at tasting room pre-lockdown, the wine has pleasantly evolved in the directions I was hoping.

Color has gone from clear/green to lemon yellow, floral notes on the nose, with jasmine green tea, honey, white grapefruit pith on the palette.

Delighted to witness the evolution. Expand plantings, good job Tommy Jr.. More please.
