Pétillant Brut Vouvray Chenin Blanc

New wine writing job taster—from First the Wine. This is sharp and soft at the same time. Stewed apple and dewy grass against raw raw raw honeydew melon. Ridiculously friendly sipper. The bubbles are light but friendly. Oh and a champagne-Esque yeast finish. — 18 days ago

Cuvée Prestige Bourgueil Cabernet Franc

Bright fruit (strawberry, cherry) on the nose. Round palate with fruits on the side, a silky touch, no tannins, a short finish with red fruits again. Pleasant — 3 days ago

Vouvray Sec Chenin Blanc 2016

Great vintage. Crazy value. Bone dry, lemon and mineral character with plenty of malic acid. Green apple, pear, honeysuckle and chamomile tea. Very pithy finish that clings to the palate for dear life. Classic Vouvray. — 2 days ago

Grand Mont Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2002

Marc Stubblefield

Not world changing, but the poster child for aging inexpensive wines. Still true to it's spicy and herbal cab franc roots, but wrapped in silky tobacco and Earth and just the lightest touch of oxidation. Sure, it'd be better with a little more heft, but no one's complaining with Wednesday night dinner — 13 days ago

Les Bournais Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2015

Oh rich and ripe! And damn tasty. Another First the Wine darling, the color says: obsess about me. The nose says I have some ripe tropical AND domestic fruits for ya. Sipping you think sour overripe lemon and orange with squeezes of ripe lemon juice. But a glass of this has been sitting in fields of honeysuckle dancing with all the limestone babies. — 18 days ago
