Le Zaune à Dédée Gewürztraminer - Savagnin 2015

Wild ride here. Lustrous amber heavy skin contact character. Cider, orange blossom and jasmine topnotes with cinnamon, ginger, sarsaparilla, cardamom, walnuts, and curry emerging over time. So acetic it’s a little aggro but by god the precision and unfolding aromatic complexity is impressive; it is not microbial or dirty at all; and as it opens, a roundness and richness balances the VA. Good stuff. — a day ago

Methode Sauvage

Iruai Shasta-Cascade Chardonnay Blend 2020

The 2020 vintage is Savagnin, Chardonnay, Bergeron, and Savagnin Rose Musqué, and it’s by far my favorite Shasta-Cascade White yet.

Super hazy onion skin hue. Saline, savory, and herbal, with notes of cantaloupe, white peach, preserved lemon, kaffir lime, musk, lemon thyme, sage, white grapefruit, yellow apple, honeysuckle, cider, clay, wet stone. Medium+ body but lots of acidity to keep it bright and fresh. Very unique, interesting, and delicious.

Cuvée du Professeur Sous-Roche Côtes du Jura Savagnin

Distinctive, toasty, nutty oxidative style with struck match and mineral rock for days. Hint of citrus for good measure. Excellent. — 19 days ago

Château du Retout

Le Retout Blanc Gros Manseng Blend 2018

Star bright gold. Abundant nose of baked quince and lanolin. Medium bodied palate echoes the nose adding layers of white flowers and rock (not stone) with a flash of white pepper on the medium long finish. Medium plus acidity. A classic white from Le Sud-Ouest that’s ready for rich Basque and Castelnaudary fare as well as hearty American white wine dishes. And if you’re the type that “doesn’t drink red,” this is a white you can take to the steakhouse (when it’s fully safe to go). Drink now through 2023. — 21 days ago

Dominique Lucas

IGP Vin de Pays d'Allobrogie Savagnin

This was a Wow wine for me and our staff. Rich tropical fruit, acid, minerality. Along with the Rayas, one of the more memorable wines this year. This is the second wine that I have had from Dominique Lucas. Both exceptional. — 19 days ago

Domaine de Montbourgeau

Vin de Paille L'Etoile Chardonnay Blend 2013

First dessert wine in a while during the pandemic. Cream soda on the nose with white raisins on the palate. Not too sweet on the finish just like mamma likes! — a month ago
