Skin Contact


Laetitia Umbria Spoletino Trebbiano 2018

Mmm. Vibrant grapefruit, guava, pine and fresh barnyard funk, brilliant butterscotchy confectionary aroma. Heady. Bright citrus lime on palate, zippy acidity yielding to a rich, moussey body, cheese rind, and pleasant, long finish with citrus peel bitterness. Broad citrus and minerals. Really beautiful skin contact sparkling wine! — 21 hours ago

@Josh Morgenthau is the barnyard funk attributed to an amount of Brett?

@Dennis P. Good question... I’d say there’s some but I’m not particularly sensitive to Brett flaws (they say it’s a genetic trait) so my tolerance may be high. The funk seemed more from the bottle being a little reductive... it blew off in a few minutes and revealed a beautiful and complex bouquet.

Tête et Queue Petite Arvine Amigne 2016

This was a skin contact Petite Arvine, I think. 12% abv, but tasted riper and richer than that. A bit of bitter on the finish. — 13 days ago
