Superb. Tropical, citrus, butter (not Chardonnay), full bodied — 10 months ago

Dirty & Rowdy

Familiar Blanc California White Blend 2016

Bright, with good acidity... fleshes out a bit with air and seems to be gaining complexity with time. Remains a terrific summer wine. — 6 years ago

Lucien Aviet & Fils

Noveau de Bacchus Arbois Trousseau

Esoteric Jura by old-timer Lucien Aviet. Made with an ancient strain of of Chardonnay with brilliant red stalks unique to the Jura known as Melon a Queue Rouge or red-tailed Melon, the Arboisien name for Chardonnay. Aged in large old foudres for 18 months (no sign of oak though) with regular ouillage (topped-up), it is fresh, clean, precise, with tension and crushed-stone minerality, hints of kelp, salt and iodine, somewhat reminiscent of Chablis. — 4 years ago
