Cave Mont Blanc

Sandlands

California Chenin Blanc 2016

This is my last bottle of the the 2016 Chenin Blanc “California” designation. We consumed this alongside the 2016 Huet Vouvray “Le Mont” Sec, you know, for fun! This wine pours a bright golden color with medium viscosity. The nose is mostly honeyed with white flowers. On the palate, quince, a touch of lime and a whole sheared sheep full of lanolin; more than any Chenin I can readily recall. Mouthfeel is creamy. Medium acid? I dunno, it’s kinda sneaky and might be closer to Medium+ but it doesn’t seem to have the acid that more recent vintages of Sandlands Chenin. Still, very tasty and seemed pretty young FWIW. — 8 days ago

Château La Rame

Sainte-Croix-du-Mont Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2018

Very standard Sauternes based on not a ton of experience. It did have a nice herbal quality. Not insanely sweet. — 18 days ago

Le Charmois Saint Aubin 1er Cru Blanc Chardonnay 2013

Fantastic buy. Aromas of grass, green veggies abound: asparagus, and green bell pepper. Hints of lime, salt, and lemon. Very rounded balance between just the right amount of acidity and citrus on the palate. Great minerality. Almost golden in color. 13% — a month ago
