Terret Blanc

Domaine Henry Pellé

Menetou Salon Morogues Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Nose has yellow apple slice, lychee slice, washed lime, dry chalk and orange blossom.

Palate has warmed sweet green apple, lime peel, lime slice, crisp salinity, steely notes with medium level acidity. A short but fun finish, a solid wine for enjoyment; Purity of the appellation.

I am in agreement with some professional critics, the vintage of this Village wine appears a little softer than other years. This will be an earlier drinker, but would be rewarded with a brief hold of 1-2 years, 2022-23. ~$20

Believe I have two of these.

I still have to pick up my '19's, hopefully a bit more acidity to the next vintage.

Comte Lafond Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Medium lemon with pleasant aromas of stone fruits, citrus and honey notes. On the palate flavors of ripe peach and pear with lemon citrus, honeysuckle and nutty notes. Medium+ finish, good balance ending with juicy mineral character. Nice! — 3 days ago

Amador County Chenin Blanc 2018

Bone dry with 12% ABV and searing acidity. Frigging delicious and buoyant but capable of scrubbing a layer of two of enamel from your teeth. I love these expressions of Amador county and lament my allocation numbers... but worth double the price. Cheers Tegan and team— you’re killin’ it! — 9 days ago

Brut Pétillant Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2014

9.0

First time trying a sparkling chenin, and this producer obviously makes this a safe place to start.

Golden in the glass. Appears to be slightly oxidized. Aromatically, this is apples and pears all day. Reminds me of spiced apple cider from the holidays. Ripe golden delicious apples mixed with cinnamon and holiday spices alongside those Harry & David pears you get in gift baskets. Undoubtedly chenin Blanc on the palate with sharp bubbles, and a mineral driven backbone...slate and limestone. As it warms, it gains a slightly waxy trait to it and drinks like a straight up non-sparkling chenin. Unique. Paired perfectly with sushi.

Quivira Vineyard and Winery

Fig Tree Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Tasted double-blind. The 2018 Quivira “Fig Tree Vineyard” Sauvignon Blanc is a beautiful follow-up to the growing legacy of world class Sauvignon Blancs being made year after year by this under-the-radar, biodynamic producer in Dry Creek. On the nose, this is striking with generous character. Lemon basil, lemon grass, oregano, grape fruit, goat cheese and gym sock on the nose. On the palate, this is a delicious and highly energetic wine with laser focused citrus fruits and minerals. High acid provides and long and satisfying finish. I guess this wine sees a kiss of new oak but the use is deftly judicious. An absolute stunner. Since 2017, Quivira’s single designate Sauvignon Blancs have been among the best in California under $50. — 14 days ago

Le Chemin Blanc Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Very good value well-made Sancerre. Tons of wet chalky minerality on the nose. Lots of Sancerre (and especially Pouilly Fume) have varying levels of herbal verging into cat pee herbiness, but this has none. It’s got a bit of crisp fruit but this is really all about the stones. Crisp, round-textured, and stony in the mouth. Very nice. — 4 days ago

The FMC Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc 2019

Impressive for the price, great balance, full and rich, yet with a zesty grip.

Très bon pour le prix, équilibré, savoureux, assez plein et riche avec une belle tension qui supporte le tout. 90-91

Dirty & Rowdy

Chenin Blanc 2017

Bone dry, acid/fruit balanced, and plenty of weight and viscosity on the palate. The Chenin worked well with Baratta, ciabatta, crushed green olives and pistachios. Drizzled good olive oil mirrors the oily wine. — 2 days ago

Bedrock Wine Co.

Sonoma Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Fresh melon and a touch of lanolin. A little more weight and roundness than typical for a young, affordable Sauvignon Blanc like this and I’m liking it. A total knock out when paired with Cypress Grove Humbolt Fog cheese. — 6 days ago
