Mont Blois

Château Loubens

Sainte-Croix-du-Mont Sémillon 1975


Finally hit the jackpot! Third and fourth bottles with clan 11/30/19 as gathering breaks off with half leaving. What a perfect match to real fois gras from Wilson. Everyone agrees and some found out belatedly a little goes a long way. Four more to go and also found another 75 Sauternes. Rated with leftover second bottle and yes each bottle different. Third bottle least oxidized and complex and in balance. — 5 days ago

Vintage 2015. 13.5% ABV. #grandvindebourgogne #montagny #aupieddumontchauve #whiteburgundy #chardonnay #oldworld #côtechalonnaise — a month ago

@Dennis P. The class teaches a tasting method that can be applied consistently to assess different wines. I’m trying to adopt most of the steps and am documenting the results here 😊

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. — 6 days ago

Domaine Huet

Le Haut Lieu Vouvray Le Mont Sec 2017

Le Mont is easily my favorite Chenin vineyard anywhere and 2017 I thought was particularly awesome so I bought it twice. It’s so expressive and so honest, unshowy. On second visit this wine is again a medley of zippy baked citrus, mango, ginger, passion fruit, and baking spice. Underneath it’s rich, but acidic enough to float. — 19 days ago
