Deep gold color. Sweet, fruit forward nose. Notes of apricot, pineapple, kiwi, white flowers, some baked apples and some tan spice. Rich and round in the mouth. Subtle but very present acidity. Past it’s peak perhaps, but it’s a really nice aged white burg. Great mouth feel and finish. Cuts through the cheese and spreads it’s served with. Drink up soon so as not to miss what this has left in the tank. — 9 days ago
What a delicious bottle. Super expressive light yellow fruits- pear, kiwi, pawpaw, banana, also with a beguiling spiciness, almost a curry spice, and slight nuttiness reminiscent of clean sous voile wine. Psycho accessibility, perfectly integrated dosage. Long mineral finish. — a month ago
Super pleasant with large fruit body of kiwi and strawberry. Dry with good chalk notes. — a month ago
Floral-laced peaches and apricots mix with an air of sweet smoke as the 2019 Nosiola Fontanasanta opens in the glass. This soothes with soft textures, while it also excites with a core of citrus-tinged acidity and salty minerals. The 2019 takes a turn toward the tropical spectrum through the finale, leaving hints of kiwi and young mango to linger. This is a very pretty and energetic vintage for the Fontanasanta Nosiola.

Great sauv blanc. Beguiling honeysuckle and green tropical fruit, pear, kiwi. Very generous, comparatively round and textured for Sancerre but still high acid. This will age well.
Unsurprisingly, even better on day 2. A riot of fruit aroma.

Great looking bottle, bought on release. Decanted for a few hours, then taken to Saison in SF. Canary yellow gold color, looks young and youthful. Enticing sweet fruit nose. Notes of citrus, kiwi, quince, tan spice, white acacia flowers and wet river stone. Huge impact on the first sip - massive core of fruit, held up by lots of acidity and structure. This has everything going for it, and can easily get better over the next 5-10 years. Hopefully my other bottles of this are equal to this great showing. 96+ — 19 days ago
