Viña Caliterra

Pétreo Malbec 2016

A surprising Malbec from Chile.
Nose - typical blueberry vanilla shake, dense, rich, sweet. There’s a hint of cool freshness, a stony minerality but not at the forefront.
The palate is a v. nice surprise.
Quite light, with brilliant juicy freshness. A light & crisp yet present tannic frame, fresh, crunchy blue & red fruit and an energetic flow of juicy acidity. Pure, cool, so fresh.
No plush richness, no jaminess, nothing over cooked. Vibrant, precise, juicy.
After the corked bottle of Gredos Grenache, this proved a delightful match for flanksteak & asparagus.
What a nice surprise!

Monoparcelle 469 Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

2019; Very hot today (96°) needed cold wine relief.
Nose has under-ripe green apple, lime zest, peach, crushed lemongrass, green melon, river stones and wet chalk.
Palate has under-ripe pineapple, key lime, yellow grapefruit, under-ripe white peach, crushed limestone and faint salinity with medium acidity.

I'm familiar with this producer, but the first time seeing this single lieu-dit (Les Sentiers) selection. Very nice effort here. Double decanted with 2H rest. 93-94

Domaine Tinel-Blondelet

Arelles Pouilly Fumé Sauvignon 2020

I had and loved the ‘19 a few months ago and the ‘20 is just as good. When you want to show a wine newbie what a classic Pouilly-Fume is, this 50-year old vine cuvée is your example. So many examples are over-the-top lean and so herbie/grassy, but this one’s nose has ripe apple and gooseberry, loads of flinty minerality, and just a touch of freshly picked green herbies. So fresh and inviting. Mouthfilling and zesty, so minerally on the palate. Again, just the barest trace of green herbs. — 21 hours ago

Envelhecido 6 meses em barrica de carvalho francês, guarda um tom rubi profundo com corpo redondo e abundantes frutos pretos, taninos suaves e especiarias que vão se revelando ao longo do final equilibrado. Aroma de groselha, chocolate amargo e sutis notas de eucalipto. — a day ago
