Domaine Ricard

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

Village Chardonnay 2016

Declassified grapes ;) Decidedly warm and generous, this 4+ yr old still has acid for our food regiment. Jim would admit the Village build is touch flabby, but his “3rd” Chardonnay is better (short and long term) than 98.5% of regional efforts. This guy had some vanilla, tropical citrus, dry marcona almonds, and  velour texture. What it lacked in crisp concrete/stainless inspired acidity, it made up for in richness and in length. 90 points only because the vineyard designates need to score 3 to 4 points higher ;) — 6 months ago

Humility Merlot Blend 2010

So hard to believe that this was built on two year leaf grapes. Talk about a great rookie season! Mostly cab sauv , this did indeed punch far beyond it’s expected weight class. Complex yet fairly linear and sequential, this has the dna of the championship level big boy (glen manor/rdv/linden). While only a 375 mL bottle, it had aged remarkably well and would be worth another library investment if available ;) — a year ago
