Blanc De Blanc

Nicolas Joly

Clos de la Bergerie Savennières Roche aux Moines Chenin Blanc 2019

Tasted single-blind as I knew there was a Joly at the table. In the glass, the wine is a bright straw color with no signs of sediment or gas. Medium+ viscosity. On the nose, medium+ intensity with some VA, slightly oxidative and very complex. Rather unusual notes of tahini, peaches, marmalade, wild flowers, and fresh green herbs. Acid is sneaky high and the finish is super long. Alcohol is high but well hidden. A massive wine. I called Savennières from a recent vintage and called producer as this had all the hallmarks of a naturally made wine and a certain style reminiscent of Joly. I adore these wines. — a day ago

Domaine Huet

Le Mont Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2020

Probably shouldn’t have opened this so so young. It’s delicious and elegant but still embryonic and thus hard to evaluate. Melon, kiwi and quince on the nose and palate. Very bright, tart, with a touch of sweetness but hasn’t taken on density yet. 9.3 for now

Update: easy 9.4 by day 3… it’s now a full blown freak show of kaleidoscopic fruit. Expect this will be even better with a few years.

Cakebread Cellars

Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Pale lemon with aromas of citrus, tropical fruits, honeysuckle and herbs. On the palate flavors of fresh crisp apple, melon, grapefruit and lemon zest, vivid acidity nicely balanced. Long crisp finish ending with a citrus mineral character. Nice! — 5 hours ago

Domaine du Piton A Sancerre

Le Piton Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Star bright pale straw. Inviting nose of stony lime zest. Medium light palate yields lime (the fruit), lime (the mineral), and green apple peel supported by striking firm acidity from entry to moderate finish. Jolivet acquired this small (8 hectares) property in 2015 and the investment is definitely paying off. This is a premium Sancerre from a top producer that’s ready for shellfish, sushi, or soft cheeses (I’m having Professor’s Brie and two others). Drink now through 2025. — 3 days ago

Château Cantenac Brown

Alto de Cantenac Brown Margaux Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Star bright straw yellow. Shy nose of dried quince and honeysuckle. Medium bodied palate of quince, honeysuckle, balsam, and a hint of white pepper on the moderate finish. A bit more woody than I’m used to, but not in an overpowering way. Just very present. Trout almandine would be an excellent match for this classic Bordeaux Blanc. Drink now through 2023 (preferably sooner). — 5 days ago

Giant Sky

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

This is more of a summer wine but I wanted something light and refreshing on this absolutely gorgeous Florida day while spending it outside enjoying football and a good book. This wine is very light, kind of watery but serves its purpose — a day ago

Thibaud Boudignon

Anjou Chenin Blanc 2017

Holy Moses this is the stuff. All kinds of citrus and green walnut notes and whopping mineral assortment on the nose and in the mouth. Intense body and richness layered on electric beams of acid. Lots of dry extract. Whisper of sweetness on the finish. Finish just won’t let up, hangs in your mouth like lemon taffy. This wine is on fire right now; it’s like a world class orchestra that’s just tuned up. — 3 days ago

I am so happy with every bottle of B I can put in the cellar 😍

Nicolas Joly

Clos de la Coulée de Serrant Savennières Chenin Blanc 1990

Medium gold color. High pitched nose. Notes of lemon, apricot, stones and some spice. Rich in the mouth, with ample acidity although the structure, fruit and acidity combo feels like this has some good age. There's a slight mustiness too. Really good. Guessed 86 Ramonet Ruchottes. — 2 days ago

Vavasour

The Pass Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Color of egg white. Nose is sweet and fruity, with peach, nectar dominant, Sprite, lemon and tangerine, spice, and hint of mineral. Nose is tropical. Taste of ample acidity, tinkling on the tongue, grapefruit and tangerine flavors, and hint of mineral again. Aftertaste is just a bit too light with tasty acidity. Quite nice. — 6 days ago
