First time trying any Huet bubbly! Really like seeing how their style translates to a sparkling wine. Still has that Huet richness but with an even greater intensity of crackling energy and zing. Poured a bright medium (-) straw-gold hue. Medium (+) concentration of aromatics of ripe Anjou pear and both ripe and baked yellow apple, alfalfa honey, waxy lanolin scent, crushed chalk, puff pastry leesiness, and a bit of chamomile and jasmine. On the palate, there’s just-ripe Anjou pear and green apple, crushed wet stone, puff pastry and aged cheese rind leesiness, lemon curd, beeswax, and a tiny bit of fresh ginger and chamomile.
High acid, moderate and unobtrusive alcohol, dry, medium (-) to medium body with an oily leesy texture and moderate intensity of very fine bubbles. This was impeccably balanced. Simultaneous richness and zing. Still quite young, and would be even better with a bit more age. — 14 days ago

The night after Thanksgiving I am still giving thanks to family and friends for the great gifts they bring me. Tonight I have opened the 2015 Bernard Baudry Chinon Les Granges.
On the nose there is roasted red pepper, raspberry sauce, ripe strawberries, some matchbox, herbal notes and a bit of soil background.
On the palate the green bell pepper is ever present, sour cherry, tart raspberry, under ripe plum, an herbal note and crushed gravel.
This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity, medium smooth tannin that goes into the medium to long tingly finish. Continue having a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 17 days ago

Good #wsjwines pick. 2016 Touraine AC, Loire Valley. Famille Bougrier mark but bottled by Les Heritiers Dubois, Saint Romain Sur Cher. Good balance of mineral and fruit, with hints of citrus. Very nice. Seems this vintage is better than years past. — 11 days ago
