Les Monts Damnés Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2022

I know that this should be aged some time but had my brother in law visiting and he is a SB fan. Pulled this out of the cellar for him. Typical SB profile, balanced and a nice round creamy moutfeel. But other than that: I didn't taste the difference between this and a 15€ supermarket sauvignon blanc. Supposedly this is the top of Sancerre.... Maybe complexity will develop in a couple of years time but for now underwhelmed 🫣 — 6 days ago

Domaine Huet

Le Haut-Lieu Demi-Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2018

Perhaps a little 1D but plenty of fruit concentration and acid, check in in another 5. — 3 hours ago

Nicolas Joly

Clos de la Coulée de Serrant Savennières Chenin Blanc 2020

This remains one of the greatest white dry wines of France although probably not for everybody. Every year is a surprise and that inconsistency can be off-putting. Golden color, medium weight, quite high in alcohol (14.5) and cloudy. Long burn, apricot, dried raisins, apple and pineapple. — a month ago

Did you really drink this at a car wash?@Doug Powers

@Peter Sultan, of course not, but Delectable (like UnTappd, the beer app I also use) has very limited “venue” apps, so, like my buddy @Severn Goodwin, who once checked in a wine at a Canadian toll booth, we all look for funny venues!! On UnTappd, I was able to create a custom venue that I use, but have never figured out how to do so on Delectable?!?!

Oh shoot, I was really starting to enjoy the image of Delectable-ites toasting with their Chinon while watching as their car gets scrubbed. All kidding aside, there was a shift on Delectable several years back I noticed when it became impossible to locate myself ( though w restaurants it works well); apparently my closest drinking venue is the synagogue across the street!@Doug Powers

Les Grézeaux Chinon Cabernet Franc 2017

Vintage 2017 | Well balanced. Serious. Spicyness. Textbook Cab Franc and still so much different from the Bourgueil we drank yesterday. Minerals. Paired with Cantonese beef and mango. — 25 days ago
