This is likely JUST entering a peak drinking window, and still on the upward trajectory. Killer aromatics of lemon meringue, crushed rock, and something reminiscent of a grilled lemon/citrus fruit. Acidity is still gripping, though not overpowering, with a slightly sweeter back palate and finish. Reminds me of a candied lemon drop with poached pear and ginger. — 15 days ago
Saturday night and I have opened the 2011 Domaine Vigneau-Chevreau Vouvray Chenin Blanc.
On the nose there are notes of honeysuckle, chamomile, saffron, sake, marzipan, honeydew melon and brioche.
On the palate there is quince, hints of lemon, marzipan and honey.
This wine is in the stage of change becoming more aperitif like. The wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity that leads into a lightly salted honey finish.ets have a great weekend and please stay safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 7 days ago

Monthly WTF wine group night. Our theme was American oak vs French oak. All wines tasted blind. We started off with two bottles of bubbly and finished with two non-themed reds.
One of the most unique, and enjoyable, rosés I’ve had in a while. More orange than pink in the glass. As expected, herbal and musty aromatics with underripe nectarine and black cherry skin. Soft and round on the palate with additional note of tart rhubarb. Complex. Thanks @Jack Thompson — 10 days ago
I love Pineau d’Aunis, and this is one of my favorites. I’ve had the 2013, 2015, and now 2018 vintages. All terrific. This one went well with pasta with anchovies, garlic, capers, and kale. — 6 days ago
Yaaaaa. This tastes like sunshine. Clean, bright, touch of canteloupe, would drink. In fact: did drink. — 20 hours ago
