Le Bel Ouvrage Savennières Chenin Blanc 2015

Knockout. All the Chenin-y floral elegance one wants with the cool, wintery air that makes Savennieres so wonderful and distinctive. — a day ago

Les Hérits Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux 2018


Another Costco wood box of 4 Bordeaux, third one to try at Torry Schoolhouse. Has that classic Bordeaux woody notes but are in balance with fruits. Very nice but just a touch below first one. 80/10/5/5 Merlot Cab Franc Cab Malbec. WE 91. — a month ago
