Les Trois Chênes Touraine Sauvignon Blanc

“... aromas of ripe forelle pears, white peaches, and buckwheat honey along with fleeting suggestions of linden flowers, lavender, and freshly sliced poblano peppers as the nose evolves in the glass.

“On the palate, the wine is a rounder and fuller counterpoint to racy Sancerre, with briny, sea salt-seasoned flavors of fresh pineapple, Meyer lemon, and ruby grapefruit interwoven with firmly hewn salty silex minerality.” — Moore Brothers Wine Co., Brooklyn

Meursault-Blagny 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

A fine elegant wine, not the fleshly Meursault, but good minerality.

Sine Qua Non

Jusqu'à l'Os Grenache 2013

2013 Sine Qua Non "Jusqu' à l'os" Sta. Rita Hills Grenache.
Back yet again to Manfred’s obsession with French names, this one is most apropos as I just finished watching the French Grand Prix at circuit Paul Ricard (remember the name Charles Leclerc F1 fans). And the wine’s name is spot on because this brooding bruiser of a Grenache is definitely “Bad To The Bone” alright. 79% Grenache from the 11 Confessions Vineyard along with 18% Syrah and 3% Petite Sirah, produced using 89% whole cluster and aged for around 38 months in 51% used oak, 6% new French oak and 43% concrete tanks. In the stem, deep Porsche Aubergine (one of my favorite vintage Porsche colors). Yet another in a long line of SQN “sit, swirl and contemplate” wines, this one has a highly perfumed nose of fresh raspberries, anise, spice box and freshly ground pepper. Full-throttled palate of plums, berries and that pepper, with earthy notes and toasted spices lurking in the background. Ultra-smooth tannins. Long, lingering kiss of a finish. Beautifully structured, this one takes the term “greatly concentrated” to a whole new level. Mr. Krankl definitely has a way with the finicky Grenache varietal. And yet again, his prowess as a master blender extraordinaire is on full display. Conventional wisdom says cellar, but it’s pretty darn good right now. Take a chance. Live a little!

Chenonceaux Tasciaca Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Wow! Mango, guava, coconut, pea shoot, galangal, autolysis. White Bordeaux-like density & texture. Easily will go 2-3 more years in a cool cellar. #touraine #sauvignonblanc #loirevalley — 3 years ago
