Côtes De Bergerac, Southwest France

Château Tour des Gendres

Pet' Nat' Bergerac Sauvignon Blanc

70% SB, 30% Chenin

Gold and green apples, lemons, white flowers, and saline minerality on the finish. Bright but with a little texture as well. Paired with lobster risotto with a hint of cayenne pepper.

Domaine Pierre Luneau-Papin

Clos des Allées Sur Lie Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Melon de Bourgogne 2018

From old vines, pale lemon with aromas of stone and citrus fruits, made with Melon de Bourgogne grape. On the palate flavors fresh fruit, apple and lemon-grapefruit with attractive acidity, with richness from lees aging. Medium finish, ending with crisp fruit, citrus and mineral notes. Drinks well now. — 7 days ago

Cuvée des Conti Bergerac Sec Sémillon 2017

Sud-Ouest tasting #2
Elegant, complex, poised, the Semillon breatdh of lemon wax matching the floral Muscadelle nicely. Beautiful mouthfeel, layered, coating, escapes the obvious clichees. Really nice.

Fun rosé, textured, pithy and lush. Super fragrant. Nice mouth presence. Red fruited, with a slight mustiness that blew off . Food friendly and easy drinking. Well done. — 19 days ago

Nicole et Romain Chanrion

Perle de Gamay White Blend 2018

Unique. Direct press Gamay from Romain Chanrion (son of Nicole) rendering a white Gamay wine. The nose leads you to believe this will be crisp & mineral, but there is a delightful richness on the palate. Plenty of bright citrus & acidity for days, but also a fruity pear note which adds some complexity. A great wine to stick in either a Chablis or Chenin Blanc blond tasting as a ringer. Very nice — 8 days ago

L'Herbe Folle Gamay

This is wild. A non-vintage solera drawing on Gamay from 2015-2018. Pours a bruised brown purple, showing its age.

Raging volatile acid wears off eventually. Enough to offend some but I like VA in a good place - sour and perfumed, not yet vinegar.

Murky sour plums and wild blackberries and nail varnish. Flavor bomb - concentrated and deep blackberry plum compote. Soft like dark chocolate pudding.
