LA BASTID Viura Blend 2019

Olivier Riviere La Bastia 2019, one of Riojas young guns and a big part of the postmodern revolution of the region. Le Bastid is a 90% Viura, 10% Garnacha Blanca, fermented and matured in 500 liter French oak barrels.
With resemblance to a good Burgundy the wine opens up with ripe white stonefruit (plum juice, white peaches) and a lemongrass herbiness. Followed by a whiff of toast and nuts that lies over a stoney minerality. Good energy on the palate with a fresh acidity and savoury qualities on the mid palate that brings dimension and complexity through the finish.
Paired with an improvised salmon and shrimp casserole in a mushroom infused velouté topped with fried parsley and sourdough croutons.
Serve it at 10-12 degree in a burgundy glass

Pessac-Léognan Blanc White Bordeaux Blend 2014

Grass flavor. Green apple with Lemon? Comfortable acidity. Still fresh. Picking it up from refrigerator, temperature is too low to enjoy it. Then I could feel rich feeling on suitable temperature, by 6 years aging. It is getting better over time, one hour, aroma is quite better with nuts flavor. 2014 @1200, Fwine - XH, 201019-201024 — 11 days ago
