White Haven

Littorai

The Haven Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009

Thanksgiving wine from my favorite American producer...with some bottle age. Young vines showing here with big intensity of fruit. Dark cherry, black currant, cola. Well integrated sweet oak. This had a distinct “new world” flavor profile that is unusual for littorai wines, but the cola/currant thing seems consistent to the vineyard based on other vintages. — 7 days ago

Domaine Berlancourt

Cuvée Les Equinces Bourgogne White Blend 2016

Wow, much better than my last btl...just needed some time to settle I guess. Pop and pour, notes from 1hr open. On the nose: lanolin and golden apple to start, and almost chenin-like, but that blows off...then sweet apple, lime, soft vanilla, some floral perfume...amazing complexity. My wife called it poetic. On the palate: excellent density, and darker than many BB that I usually like: great acid, but like a ginger beer character, lime, soft minerality and a lovely finish. Fantastic. — 8 days ago

Thézée Touraine Chenonceaux White Blend 2018

Full on flagrant delight. This Sauv B will be as it wants to be. Which is surprisingly full and tropical for a Loire Sauv. — 11 days ago

Pierre Cotton

Vin de France Blanc 2019

A white from Pierre Cotton is the new experimental album from the young gamay slinger. This, I assume, is mostly Chardonnay from the small plot he acquired not long ago.

So big, you can sniff a little heat from the alcohol. Round and creamy like almond butter hand lotion. The oak is neutral, the acid dialed down, folded right there into a little basket of fresh picked yellow apples, mint green melon, chamomile, and blooming jasmine.

Big ole white for a cold fall night.

Old Vine Heinstein Vineyard White Blend 2016

I found two bottles of this vintage tucked away in the cellar. I opened one shortly after that and was very pleased with my discovery. Richer than most wines from this producer but not flabby by any means. Notes of citrus, a touch of honey and a very pleasant depth and richness. So glad I have one more bottle to enjoy! — 6 days ago

Frasers 9# blend

My first shot with his producer and I really enjoyed it. Nice combination of dark fruit and a bit of the Aussie plushness. Went very well with my Carnitas sandwich. At $100 a bottle it’s a stretch but nice wine regardless. Will hold my other 2 for a while — 9 days ago

@Jeff Ames : Though not easy to acquire, when buying direct, this comes out to around $50/bottle. Banging deal at that price. His single vineyard offerings are truly outstanding. @Fraser McKinley is a stand up guy!

Light salmon in color.

Strong nose of strawberries, citrus, lemons, apples, yeast, spices, white pepper, light herbs and earth.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing with small bubbles.

Dry on the palate with citrus, lemons, green apples, grapefruits, bitter herbs, spices, vegetables and earth.

Nice tangy finish with tangy limes.

This French sparkling Rosé is nicely balanced. Crisp and refreshing, good for the pool, easy drinking and tangy.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a nice day by the pool. Nice and engaging.

12.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$20.

Delicious: had a savory nutty biscuit w/dill which gave way to white flowers, tangerine & dried pineapple. Very expressive, steely stony minerally grippy sappy w/linear acidic backbone. Really unusual, nice heft & persistence on finish. — 2 days ago

Sine Qua Non

Tectumque Ventura White Blend 2017

Awesome. Amazing aromas of pear, stone fruit, and white flowers on the nose. Took a bit of time to open up - should really sing in 3-4 more years - but with some air time this one really opened up. Fantastic. — 14 days ago
