Prié Blanc

Ermes Pavese

Blanc de Morgex et de la Salle Prié Blanc 2019

Really benefitted from long slow ox/decant. Nose of fresh hay. Acidity that tempered out. Terrific freshness & depth. Minerals, alpine flowers, hint of cream. Lovely wine. — 3 days ago

Alphonse Mellot

La Moussière Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Smells of melon with mango and cream (maybe an orange creamsicle). I could smell this all day. Some faint hints of lemon follows at the end. Hit with a sweet fruit taste initially quickly followed by a lemon sourness that lingers along with a cloying cream-like taste. Really nice acid. Had with salmon which went perfectly. — 5 days ago

Whitehaven

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020

I always liked Whitehaven NZ SB. Another great vintage, totally consistent with previous. I use this Sauvignon Blanc for my signature left over Thanksgiving dish - Turkey pot pie - and drink half the bottle while making it. 😎 — 7 days ago

Sandlands

California Chenin Blanc 2016

This is my last bottle of the the 2016 Chenin Blanc “California” designation. We consumed this alongside the 2016 Huet Vouvray “Le Mont” Sec, you know, for fun! This wine pours a bright golden color with medium viscosity. The nose is mostly honeyed with white flowers. On the palate, quince, a touch of lime and a whole sheared sheep full of lanolin; more than any Chenin I can readily recall. Mouthfeel is creamy. Medium acid? I dunno, it’s kinda sneaky and might be closer to Medium+ but it doesn’t seem to have the acid that more recent vintages of Sandlands Chenin. Still, very tasty and seemed pretty young FWIW. — 5 days ago

Ernesto Wickenden Vineyard Old Vines Chenin Blanc 2018

Definitely one of the better Chenin Blancs I've had. Balanced, not tart, or grassy, or overly fruity. Solid. One of my favorite whites in a long time! Z really liked it too. Took to Etts for Thanksgiving.
Got at Vendome. Not a cheap white at $26+ (can't remember exact $), but you get what you pay for.

Props to Foxen for being one of the very very few CA wineries focusing on a wine/varietal that's not exactly paying the bills but is fantastic.

Tabalí

Talinay Calcáreo Costero Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Strong citrus. Citrus and grassy herbal notes. Intense minerals. I find it very hard to judge these young Sauvignon Blanc de garde. It’s clear how much is there but the wine is not yielding much pleasure at the moment. — 6 days ago

Domaine du Collier

La Charpentrie Saumur Blanc Chenin Blanc 2016

What a wine! It’s been a long and slow delight we sipped slowly over our quiet evening. ⁣
It paired especially well with the cuisine from Dawa, the beef momos and even the pork chili (that was slightly less hot as usual 😮‍💨). The mild tones of the Himalayan spice were perfect companion to this wine, holding everything high in the mouth and soul.⁣

The wine is rich, complex, round, ripe, with a lactic touch. Buttermilk? And then the usual flavors and aromas of⁣
chenin, honey, pear, peach, bit of exotic lush all conducted with maestria with a backbone that holds things all along never making it heavy or annoying

Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

A classic, elegant Sancerre, both steely and juicy. Grapefruit, lemon, passion fruit, lime, flint and rather subdued herbaceous aroma and flavors with a bit of cut grass. Long and very clean finish. It’s a wine you definitely want a second glass of. — 2 days ago

Orin Swift Cellars

Blank Stare Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Dense, verging on oily.
Tastes like a big bowl of fruit salad (grapes, cantaloupe, green pineapple and apricots; seasoned with touches of mint and lemonzest).
A big, bold and audacious SB.

Attems

Venezia Giulia Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Lively and polished—nice play between stone fruit and greens with a little citrus in the mix. Really veers from dried apricot and pineapple to herbs and back that keeps me going. — a month ago
