Meritage Monticello Cabernet Franc Blend 2007

Treat it with a light hand, which is what worked for me. I thought it would probably be well beyond it’s prime and it’s not.

Domaine de Reuilly

Reuilly Sauvignon Blanc 1996

Pretty golden color with a yellow tint.

Great nose of grapefruits, spices, carmel and white pepper.

Light-bodied and engaging.

Dry on the palate with grapefruits, spices, honey, butterscotch and caramel.

Long and tangy finish, without any bitterness. So delicious.

Complex and interesting, with a touch of a young Sauvignon Blanc taste.

Needs 30 minutes to open up properly and needs to be very chilled.

This 23 year old Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire is crisp and refreshing, but not as crisp as a young Sauvignon Blanc from this region.

I always enjoy tasting a small piece of history.

12.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.
