Le Mont Moelleux Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2017

Pure pleasure—waves of flavor washing over your palate like the tide. Great acidity, brilliant color, sweet without being cloying. With the ubiquity of varied and spiced cuisines these days, you’d think sweet wines would be having a moment. Yet nearly every restaurant list is bone-dry until the dessert and the saddest job in wine is slinging Sauternes. May these wines stay ever unfashionable (if oddly, in coke-swilling America) so that we can continue to afford them. — 11 days ago

Thésée Touraine Sauvignon Blanc

Vintage 2017 / delicious and true to type sauvignon from Touraine with a good spine, minerality in smell ánd taste. The vintner has one of the most beautiful French names: Pierre-Olivier Bonhomme, which means good man. After tasting this wine on the tongue I can only agree. For sure. / Paired for lunch with a Fishburger — 13 days ago

KO In Côt We Trust

This is smooth natural Malbec. It had an earthy nose with some muted red fruit. It’s attack was soft and it’s acid low and tannin light. Very drinkable. A stable wine too, lasted for 4 days! — 15 days ago

Les Rosiers Jasnières Chenin Blanc

Exceptional. Day two was way more mineral-driven than the insane aromatics of day one. I am in love with this wine! — 25 days ago

Les Chanteaux Chinon Chenin Blanc 2017

Lovely white for those who want floral and herbal primary palate where the fruits are subtle and complementary. Off dry with nice honey and light hint of orange before a super fun grassy flourish of a finish and a hint of oiliness. Good mineral and body feel. Not much sweetness and med acidity. Fun and atypical. I’ll be back. — 6 days ago

Clos de l'Olive Chinon Cabernet Franc 2015

Lyle Fass
9.3

Lovely nose. Olive as the name suggests, blackberry, herbs, tobacco and smoke. Smells like Graves. Palate is ripe, rich and balanced. Really terrific balance. Velvety and elegant tannins and lovely freshness and roundness. Young but not inaccessible. In 5 years will slay some dragons. — 12 days ago
