Condrieu Viognier 2015

Dan R

Natural type vio. Quite cloudy. Very aromatic - peach, apricot. Heady stuff. Super generous on the palate, very complex with the fruit tones balanced by a savory lanolin character and big time acacia notes. Like a liquid orchard at harvest time. Starts to oxidize relatively quickly and then the almond flavors kick in, adding interest. Really cool stuff, if a little warm and heavy. One glass is enough, but a quite enjoyable glass it was. — 4 days ago

Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2017

The ultimate expression of young Chenin Blanc. Not much else to say. Beautiful nose of quince, springtime acacia flower, and a bit of baked apple. The acidity cuts through the palate but is perfectly balanced by the RS. Today, the juice is a thick golden treat. With age, this will transform into an exquisite and complex, honeyed potion. Trust me - it’s good. 2017 vintage on Mar 24, 2019 — 25 days ago

Les Referts Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay

Deep yellow, nose: honeycomb, acacia, blossoms, and tropical fruit (banana, pineapple), apricot pit, lemon pith, green apple, toast, on the palate: searing acid, still so vibrant, tropical fruits and strong secondary traits of coconut, vanilla, toasty caramel, bright lemon and green apple. Long finish. — 5 days ago

Voglar Alto Adige Sauvignon 2016

Probably one of the better varietal Sauvignon you will try. Wonderful craftsmanship from Alto Adige, the forgotten corner of Italian wine. Fermentation at high temperature, maturation in acacia wood with regular bottonage, not your normal SB recipe. Perfectly ripe fruit, a dash of herbs and a stroke of honey over a pronounced stone crushed minerality. With time in the glass the minerality becomes even more nuanced and new buttery notes appears. Great texture on the palate where the savory quality comes again and brings the fruit throughout a long finish. 2 hours in the decanter, 12°C and time in the glass makes it even stronger. — a day ago

Domaine Bohn

Alsace l'Eternel Riesling Blend 2008

Cuvée of Riesling/Pinot Gris/Pinot Noir
Deep golden hue and pronounced honey in the nose, with some renclode & mirabelle plums, overripe sour apples and a hint of ginger. On the plate with nice weight and brilliant bright acidity. Apples & plums but also white tea tannins and hints of honey. The acacia barrel perfectly integrated. Great purity and sense of origin with a mineral streak. This is a beautiful wine.
