Val de Loire Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Tried again! Blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Chardonnay, medium lemon with aromas of white flesh fruit, citrus and floral blossoms. On the palate flavors of ripe apple and citrus with floral spice. Long finish, lively acidity, nice body and texture due to Chardonnay, ending with citrus and mineral notes. Very nice! — 12 days ago

Le Val Cornet Brut Champagne

Very very pretty. Delicate green fruit, a confectionary quality. Subtle and delicate. Very young but seductive already. — a month ago

Refreshing acidity. Grassy. Bright. A bit of minerality? — 23 days ago


Südtirol Vinschgau Val Venosta Riesling

Perhaps the best example of resiling I have ever had the opportunity to sample.

Dry, but lots of honey on the finish. Pear up front. One of my favorite whites

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2017

Right in the Chianti Classico sweet spot. Resolved tannin and acid support rich black and red fruit. Pruny, but still bright. Bone dry Amarena cherries, but no rs. Oak in balance. Expensive cigarettes. I wonder about this in 5, 10, 15 yrs… — 15 days ago
