Superb Rioja 2015 — 20 days ago
Francois’ garage in Ancey. Sweet fruits. Tannins are a bit rough. Slight vanilla finish. — 11 days ago
How a couple of these bottles landed in my cellar is a story best saved for another day. Needless to say, this is sixteen year old Sauv Blanc from Baja California by a renowned producer in the region.
The wine has a medium to deep yellow tone with floral and mature pineapple scents. The pallet is two dimensional: starts round with white tea flavors then turns to waxy buttery and vanilla flavors.
Light, low alcohol; the finish is slightly acidic and citrus but substancial.
Turned into an interesting wine where I wasn’t expecting much to be honest. My brain is baffled as parts of the wine taste a lot like a young heavily oaked Cali Chard. Must pair the remaining bottle; thinking a creamy and slightly spicy chile poblano soup. Hopefully that’ll clear up my baffling… — 2 months ago
A very interesting inadvertent experiment. I left this in a styrofoam case in my garage. It was there for almost 3 months. The garage hits 90 during the day.
Any rate the wine tastes like the wine.
Go styrofoam !!!!!

I’m an unabashed fan of this wine- gently fizzy, crisply acidic, it is filled with plum, wild strawberry, raspberry, red current, black cherry and red cherry. Made by tank method so it is all about fruity primary aromas and flavors and it goes with a huge array of foods from pasta to porchetta. — a month ago
Francois’ garage in Beaune after tasting his and Val’s wine. Charlene cooking dinner. Perfumed, pretty nose. Fresh, elegant, glou glou. — 11 days ago
Deep gold color. Sweet, fruit forward nose. Notes of apricot, pineapple, kiwi, white flowers, some baked apples and some tan spice. Rich and round in the mouth. Subtle but very present acidity. Past it’s peak perhaps, but it’s a really nice aged white burg. Great mouth feel and finish. Cuts through the cheese and spreads it’s served with. Drink up soon so as not to miss what this has left in the tank. — 14 days ago
