Accord Confidential Chenin Blanc 2010

Vintage 2010 / Tasted my last bottle of this Chenin Blanc four years ago... no signs of aging, amazingly fresh, vivid and charming. This ‘tendre’ has some wood-ripening. Beautiful smell of jasmin and vanilla. Perfect harmony and many many years to go. I love it. / Paired with a ‘Brabants worstenbroodje’ a regional specialty, a saucage bun. — 6 days ago

Your worstenbroodje looks a bit dark @Peter van den Besselaar did you set the oven temp too high 😂

Domaine Huet

Le Mont Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2016

Happy Thanksgiving!! Didn’t drink very much of this, but what I did have was very unique and tasty. Extremely rich and not much in the way of acidity. Really coats the palate with butter and cream. — 7 days ago

Mephisto Cabernet Franc 2015

Big and beautiful nose with a lean body. Day 3 and it’s gorgeous. Little floral violet and black currant and juicy crunchy acids. Think this is going to stun in 5-10 years. — 12 days ago

@Michal Rosenn Soo good. Such an incredible expression of Cab Franc, especially surprising coming from the Pays Nantais!

Collection Val de Loire Red Blend 2015

Took a chance on this unusual red from Loire: unique varietal composition & bottle format, but delicious nonetheless! Fairly dark inky richly extracted w/concentrated aromas of red fruit literally up & down the spectrum: tart cherry, cranberry, ripe bing cherry (and sour cherry), some raspberry couli all mingled with white pepper, clay & subtle vein of minerality. I found it very complex & engaging if a bit disjointed when looking at interplay of acidity & tannins... — 7 days ago

Loire Valley Pineau d'Aunis 2018

Pineau d’Aunis is cultish now, finding its way into any situation that has previously worked for Gamay, Valdiguie, Grolleau, or Pinot Noir. Glowing shade of cranberry and a little bit murky with gorgeous aromatics. Perfumed Palo Santo incensed with dark red cherries, spruce, pine, menthol, and cinnamon. The texture has a little weight, plenty of minerals, and pyrazine from some stem inclusion.

And I love the end - pine and iodine and red candied cherry.

Famille Bougrier (Domaines Bougrier)

Grande Reserve Vieilles Vignes Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2018

Quite sweet, but I’m enjoying it. Almost to Riesling sweetness territory, but there’s enough interesting petrol notes and acidity to balance it out. Golden Apple, tart pear, stone fruit. Fantastic with the Chicken Thigh + caramelized onion/cinnamon/cardamom basmati rice recipe from Ottolenghi and Tamimi’s Jerusalem cookbook. — 13 days ago
