Gorgeous wine

Domaine Arnaud Lambert

Brézé Clos David Monopole Saumur Chenin Blanc 2019

Translucent light colour. Typical nose of
Chenin, citrus zest, melon. In the mouth, the acidity is sharp and constitutes the backbone of the tasting, which is spread over several levels, with notes that are both resin and herbaceous mineral. It is certainly a work of high mastery. Perfect with oysters and seafood.

Robe claire translucide. Nez type des
Chenin, zeste d’agrume, melon. En bouche l’acidité est tranchante et constitue la colonne vertébrale de la dégustation qui s’étage sur plusieurs niveaux, avec des notes autant minéral rés que herbacées. C’est assurément un travail de haute maîtrise. Parfait avec des huîtres et fruits de mer.

Stagecoach Vineyard Her Majesty's Secret Service Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This took a good 1 1/2 - 2 hrs to come around. I think it’s best is 2-3 years away. Bell pepper, leather and lead pencil. I feel it will merit a higher rating if you are patient. — 3 years ago

Vouvray Sec Chenin Blanc 2014

When I contrast this Chenin Blanc with Huet I imagine the Foreau stays close to its character for life: not quite austere, but serious & pedigreed. With 8 years on it already could easily ingest another decade or so with no less for wear & tear. The Huet on the other hand goes through Zelig like changes, and at times tastes purely Burgundian while others it’s more Viognier- like. — 10 days ago
