La Croix au Garde Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Picked up a split of this because all my .375 empties got accidentally thrown out (I use them to store unfinished bottles in the fridge). So I was mostly after the bottle itself but what’s inside happens to be superb—lime, apple and floral notes with fine but not hard edged limestone mineral character, softened perhaps by the clay component of the terroir. I Sancerre-ly enjoyed it! — 22 days ago

@Ellen Clifford When it comes to wine puns, I guess Saumur just better than others

Very good but not my favorite of the single vineyards. Has notes of lavender or something else that’s interesting but not as appealing. — 16 days ago

Menetou-Salon Morogues Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

9.2

First, I’d like to thank @Severn Goodwin for this excellent example of Rosé in our bottle exchange.

The nose shows leaner, candied & floral fruits of; strawberries, watermelon, black cherries, raspberries, candied rhubarb, amazing powdery chalkiness, fine white to grey volcanics, sea spray with candied pink florals.

The palate is; round, lush, juicy and smartly balanced. Classic French Rosé. Ripe with high viscosity. Candied & floral fruits of; strawberries, watermelon, black cherries, raspberries, tangerine, candied rhubarb, amazing powdery chalkiness, white spice w/ a ginger lean, some of the very best fine white to grey volcanics I’ve had, sea spray with candied pink florals. The acidity is a cool, rushing river. The rich, elegant, well polished, lush finishes with excellent minerality that persists equally with lush fruitiness.

Sous La Roche Pouilly-Fuissé Chardonnay 2015

Medium yellow color. Aromas of bruised apple, pear and orange blossoms. Delightful little Chard. Citrus notes balanced with a hint of minerals. Paired nicely with a spicy dish and some marigolds for Day of the Dead. — a month ago

Chassagne-Montrachet Chardonnay 2015

The House of Louis Jadot has been producing exceptional Burgundy wines since its founding in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. Medium lemon with aromas of rich stone fruits with subtle toasty notes. On the palate apple and pear with nutty notes, gentle spice, great mouthfeel on long finish ending with a mineral character. Nice! — 24 days ago

Napa County Chardonnay 2019

Light yellow in color with a golden tint.

Strong nose of citrus, vanilla, oak, yellow apples, spices, toast and white pepper.

Medium to full-bodied with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with lemons, citrus, light grapefruits, earth, oak, vanilla, smoke, spices, light earth and black pepper.

Nice finish with spices and limes.

This is a very enjoyable Oaky Chardonnay from Napa Valley. Showing a nice smooth and buttery mouthfeel.

Although an oaky Chardonnay is not my style, I really enjoyed it, especially with food.

I paired it with a very fatty Brie cheese and caviar.

A good quality wine. Neither sweet nor bitter, just very enjoyable.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$22.

Pinot Blanc - Auxerrois 2018

Concentrated and bold. Almost overpowering. Better the second day- a bit calmer. Overall and impressive wine but needs bold food pairing. — a month ago
