La Chatenière Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2019

PYCM’s younger brother. The most is a bit shut down for now but solid, mineral-driven with a hint of white florals. The palate is a different story: there’s a chalky-creamy texture that’s hard to explain and to die for, an interplay of supple ripeness and out of bound minerality. The acidity is there to support the conclusion but the taste takes a back seat to the texture. Remarkable even considering the shy nose, would love to drink it in its prime. — a month ago

Torres Alegre

Cru Garage Sauvignon Blanc 2006

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…
