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 — 12 days ago
I mean...I just wish there was more of this in my life. It’s taken on a rounder mouthfeel since I had it last (6 or so months ago) but it’s still pure Chenin. The nose is a little alcoholic but don’t be fooled...that palate still has all the slate and mineral goodness plus that lemon and orange zest. Can’t wait to get my hands on the next vintage. — 14 days ago
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. — 11 days ago
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. — 5 days ago
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
Haven't updated here for the longest time, but that's kinda how my wine journey has been in the last couple of weeks - dry af, stash running low, without any means of resupply in Kuching. Nevertheless, the tide has turned with my trips to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. Wine hour is at hand!
Did have this though during my dry spell. It was sort of nice find in this desolate land. Blistering acidity, floral, fruity - orange zest, grapefruit, finished with a light bitterness, honey, pebbly. Medium finish. A real solid Sancerre. — 18 days ago
