Smoking good. From a PN / Chard IGP just south of Pouilly-Fumé, about 175 km west of Beaune, on a limestone / clay plateau above the Loire. Super sappy, layered and textured. Intense, red fruited, silky and detailed. Finishes long. Amazing, really, for what it is. — 4 days ago
Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.
Nose has bruised yellow apple, cold butter, fresh green herbs and wet oak.
Palate has baked apple, squeeze of lemon juice, lemon zest and round, mild oak influence.
Our final bottle of the 2005, likely one of the best bottles to our memory. This could likely continue to hold a few more years, before noticeably decline. — 23 days ago
So much yum. Mineral and stone but still rich and mouth coating. Can’t believe it’s almost 15% abv, no heat at all. Exceptional integration. Will go with tons of different foods. — 4 days ago
Thursday night and the wine of choice us another Sauvignon Blanc but Old World, the 2017 Régis Minet Pouilly-Fumé Vielles Vignes.
The nose brings nice notes of lime, green apple, pear, white peach, musk melon and good minerality.
The palate shows very nice lime, passionfruit, pear, herbs, lemongrass, mineral and wet slate.
This wine medium bodied with medium to medium + acidity that moves right into a clean long mineral, citrus finish that sits on the mid-palate pleasingly. One more day until the start of the weekend stay safe and we will be enjoying the weekend soon. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 25 days ago
