@Delectable Wine this is the 2013 Reserve. It was not in the database. This is a nice English sparkler. Very fruit forward with younger yellow fruit. Nice bubbles. Did not appear to be too small or big in the glass. Peaches, mango, melon. Kind of herbal towards the finish. Steered away from the tropical side. Really nice and balanced. Wondering if the 89 rating is stigma driven (hint: it is). This is right in line to Champagne offerings that are a 91-92 without thinking twice. This one didn't take long to disappear. Wish I had a couple more of these, but no such luck. — 17 days ago
Monthly WTF wine group tasting. This month’s theme was chardonnay from any region or vintage. Nice eclectic bunch! All wines tasted blind.
@Delectable Wine : This is the Fourchaume bottling from this producer. I didn’t see it in the database.
Very classical. Tasting this side by side with the Mersault was fun not only because they were so different, but because of how they evolved. This one stayed true the entire time...very classical. Steely. Just a touch of reductive notes at first. Very pure and concentrated fruit. Lemon, chalky limestone, good acidity (but not razor like). This wine also showed a touch of pink sea salt and grapefruit, which had some people thrown off. I guessed Chablis. — 6 days ago
Deep cherry and full bodied. — 17 days ago
Beautiful, deep and brooding, complex without excess wood. Subtle red fruit with big acid and body. — 2 days ago

17.5. Savennieres doesn’t get much better. This has more acidity than the usual Baumard or Joly, but lots of fruit, v long. Could hold 5+ years. — 10 days ago
