Dandelion Vineyards


Mostar Zilavka

2017 vintage. Surprisingly good and lacking any of the oxidation that sadly plagues whites from this part of the globe. Chamomile and orchard fruits on the nose, also on the palate. Perfectly ripe pear, yellow and green apples, white nectarine, lime flesh, a little mineral phenolic bitterness, dandelion and chamomile flower, nondescript light herbal note. — a month ago

Domaine Leflaive

Mâcon-Verzé Chardonnay

There’s a lot going on with this wine. A yeasty nose, and a Puckett Granny Smith mid palette with a bit of a peppery gravel finish. Was a delight with roast chicken, sourdough, dandelion blue cheese salad: every bite revealed new character in the wine. Drank the 2015 in 2020. — 3 months ago

Silex Pouilly-Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Mid Lemon in colour. Initial touch of oxidation on nose which largely disappeared. Barb said aromas of Dandelion which is a lawn weed in Australia. Very minerally (from soil riddled with flint). Touch of pineapple. This is barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc from Pouilly Fume and as different as possible from Marlborough NZ Sauvignon Blanc. Great Intensity on the palate with the Oak in perfect balance. One of the 1001 wines. In the book “probably the greatest white made in the Upper Loire Valley”. I would like to try a younger vintage in the future. Made by the eccentric Didier Dagueneau. — 3 months ago

@Bob McDonald We happened across this exact wine in the early 2000's and were smitten ever since. I sought out large format bottles for safe keeping, every one has been epic and holding just fine. This bottle and the Pur Sang are our favorites. I almost got a pre-2008 Asteroide once, but it slipped through my fingers as I didn't react fast enough to secure. One day though...

Domaine des Roches Neuves (Thierry Germain)

Clos Romans Saumur Chenin Blanc 2015

Tropical fruit and wildflowers on the nose, expressing as unripe pineapple in the mouth, dandelion, foudre, opening up with notes of walnut, walnut oil, pecans, sunflower seeds, and all kinds of umami goodness. — 3 months ago
