Les Picasses Chinon Cabernet Franc 2014

Worth a check in at 10 years. Always an outstanding nose. Needed hours of air and still pretty shy, fruit in particular is closed. Paired with NY strip tonight. Have half a case left of this vintage and will check in again in a couple years. — 7 days ago

Le Mont Demi-Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2007

Acid wins the day! I’ve never had a Demi sec before so I was expecting a bit of sweetness and added texture. Well maybe a hint upon initial taste of citrus and honeysuckle. I really enjoyed this! — 23 days ago

Love these. I am told they age forever, but never been able to wait that long.

Moulin Touchais

Coteaux du Layon Chenin Blanc 1985

My favorite wine. Flavors echoed the apple cider poached pears.

Earthy (wet/ozone post thunderstorm forest floor, button mushroom), burnt caramel, baked pear and apple, sage, agave, wild acid.

Domaine du Closel-Château des Vaults

La Jalousie Savennières Chenin Blanc 2020

Quite stony on the nose , green apple , wet wool. On the palate fills out well with more green fruits , apple , pear and quince with a creamy , slightly waxy character to go with the flinty , saline and stony notes . Good balanced acidity and decent , honey tinged finish . Enjoyable now though will age well over the next 10 -15 years or so . — 9 days ago

Trinch Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2021

Textbook #loirevalley #cabernetfranc, this one from #touraine ; It was late in the evening after happy hour so notes are a bit more approximate than usual. 😜 Pyrazines active, green pepper notes, shy black/purple fruit, soft tannins and a vegetal earthiness on the palate. It could have been served cooler by the bar but nice night cap nonetheless. — 3 days ago

One of the best SB out there - consistent thru vintage. Somehow finds a way to expertly straddle Old & New World flavors. Finely delineated notes, great verve & acidity w/impressive finish. — a month ago
