Domaine Huet

Le Mont Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2009

Sweet aroma explosion. Light honey, Mirabelle plums, apricots, white tea, candied orange peel, yet it remains so fresh.
On the palate this is so balance, so juicy, v. sweet to still fresh. And there’s depth, a hint of tannic structure, a stony, mineral finish.
Why have dessert when you can have this?

Weingut Tement

Sausaler Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Glass cap belies its elegance: needs air to fully come into a mid weight, substantial Sauvignon Blanc with all kinds of mineral & chalky layers. Medium acidity, green papaya, grapes & scallion. Rich yellow/ green hued. Hellava food wine, though drank solo. A note to self-Austria rocks — 6 days ago

Herencia Altes

Garnatxa Blanca 2020

I’ve never had a wine from the region of Catalonia near the border of Aragon! Would love to visit the area to see Antoni Gaudi’s architecture in person. This wine made my jawls pucker with the first sip but ended up being really light and refreshing on the palate. — 6 days ago

Silex Sauvignon Blanc 2005

2022 Independence Day Party 🇺🇲 with several members of our Tastevin crew and extended friends.🍷 Proof that our palates are wider than Burgundy. Notes may be light, scores will be honest.

1500ml; From our cellar. Wonderful, so young still...very, very happy we have more (same vintage) in magnum & standard. Notes on future bottles. So many smiles today, all cheeks hurt.

@Ira Schwartz For sure, looking ahead to other bottles, as this is still quite youthful!

@Severn Goodwin I had some issues with some older 750’s.

Groth Vineyards & Winery

Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Pale lemon with stone fruit aromas & spicy floral tones. On the palate flavors of crisp apple and peach, with blossom and cinnamon spice, lively acidity supporting the oak and “sir lie” aging. Medium+ finish ending with vivid acidity and mineral tones. Very nice. — 5 days ago

Les Denisottes Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Lyle Fass
9.5

Superb nose of mineral, lemon zest, pink grapefruit and wonderful lime flesh and zest. Gorgeous mineral depth here. Lots of earth as well. Almost a Burgundian interpretation of Sancerre. Juicy and insanely complex palate that is finesse driven and so delicate. Wonderful sap and has a grandiose quality to it and finish that does not quit. Hugely concentrated but never heavy and a gamey/savory element on the palate. So sappy and pure. Round like Keller can be. Just a gorgeous bottle. Blown Away. Will last 10-15 more years. — 5 days ago

Yes, I like to let these rest a bit, but they are great

Foreau - Domaine du Clos Naudin

Goutte D'Or Moelleux Vouvray Chenin Blanc 1990

Couleur presque brune, un nez incroyable, du fruit confit, une texture sirupeuse un peu, il y a encore de l’acidité pour aider à balancer un peu cette richesse extravagante, la longueur est interminable. Belle expérience d’en boire un verre ou deux. 93-94

Almost brown in colour, the nose is amazingly complex, the texture is almost like syrup, there is still some acidity to balance that richness that is almost too much, and the sugar is wow, but it is still delicious and the length never stops, great experience to drink this wine that was made in only 4 vintages.

Hartwell Vineyards

Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Surprisingly has many years left on it, nice $5.00 sale bottle. Better than the new Realms at $75-100.00,
Actually wasn’t a sale, it was a glitch on K&L where everything at one time listed at $5,00, grabbed about 30 different bottles
