Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2016

2016 - Honeysuckle, luscious bouquet; golden hue; great legs; viscous, lightly acidic, slightly late harvest, touch of citrus, light honey finish; still the best Sau Blanc there is, the one to beat; without a doubt! — 6 days ago

Domaine Christian Moreau Père et Fils

Vaudésir Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2014

Very nice once again, fine, elegant, fresh, lightly chiseled, the attack and middle of the palate is great and of the level of a GC, the finish has a slight sourness that prevents me from noting higher.

Encore un beau Moreau, frais, fin, ciselé et élégant surtout pour l’attaque et le millieu de bouche de niveau GC, la finale a un petit bemol avec des notes amers un peu agaçantes mais l’ensemble est très bien. 90-91

Villa Cavarena

Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2019

Deep ruby color, almost garnet. Decent legs. Cherry and leather and bright red fruit on the nose. Maybe also pepper? Very lightly tannic rainier cherry, cranberry, and silky red fruit. It's good, but not my favorite Valpolicella blend. — 12 days ago

Perbacco Langhe Nebbiolo 2017

9.1

Delightful nose of cherry, raspberry, strawberry complemented by tobacco, touch of balsamic and hint of truffle. The fruits feel lightly candied on the juicy palate. Medium body, and the tannins command attention.

If the Castiglione bottling is the king, this would be the queen: lively, graceful, yet authoritative.

Les Maltôtes Ipp13 Chardonnay Tressallier 2018

First sip is crazy. Totally unique.

Palate is intense. Fresh. Almost painfully fresh and tart in a good way. Think a great vintage of willi Schaefer how it gets that intense Green apple jolly rancher thing. Except this is Chardonnay and tressalier. Yes. I know this note is a bit imprecise but it’s not like I have a lot of experience with tressalier.

Has this stunning controlled density. Blind I might guess aged very good Grand cru Chablis. Shows what I know.

Man. This is very good.

Nose is lightly floral. Sorta closed but the little you get is gorgeous. If the nose comes around this is world class wine.

As this opens you get almost this elegant marsanniness. Almost mountain Marsanne. Rich and lightly floral.

An hour in this is insane. The density, complexity and elegance of grand cru burgundy. Spectacular.

Makes me wonder how many other random areas can make elite wines.

Bought from fass selections.

Domaine Moreau-Naudet

Pargues Vieilles Vignes Chablis Chardonnay 2017

Hay. Salty, lightly buttered. Some yellow fruit and citrus. Medium body and medium finish. Nice sweetness and lactic quality. Tart and salty... great. — 11 days ago

Wein Rosie Rosé Blend 2017

Nose has warmed watermelon, dried orange rind, wet grape vines, oak firewood bark and cold cherries.

Palate has dried strawberry, Clementine orange slice, new-ish oak barrel and under-ripe raspberry. Lightly sweet, certainly showing its Spätburgunder composition, but lacking a notable finish, it's quick.

More time needed, perhaps a hot summer day? Decanted 1H.

Villa Cialdini Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro Lambrusco

Sparkling red Daniel's birthday. Lightly sparkling at the front of the palate with a finish like a usual red wine. I liked but Daniel preferred the laithwaites one — 7 days ago
