Color : White
Wine estate : Louis Bovard
Designation : Saint-Saphorin
Name : Salix Chenin Blanc
Country : Switzerland
Vivino : 4.5/5
Note : The Salix from Bovard is beautiful! A light yellow silky robe and a nose of citrus fruits, pears and apples accompanied by a slight mineral touch. On the palate, Salix is gourmet, tasty, long and refreshes us. A taste as an aperitif, eating or even alone, it will always make you happy.
Le Salix de chez Bovard est magnifique ! Une robe soyeuse jaune claire et un nez d’agrumes, poires et pommes accompagné d’une légère touche minérale. En bouche, le Salix est gourmand, savoureux, long et nous rafraîchit. A déguster à l’apéritif, en mangeant ou même tout seul, il saura toujours vous faire plaisir.

Another day, another time Kuhlman Cellars knocks it out of the park with a white wine. This is a 60/40 Marsanne/Roussanne Blend and is all Estate fruit...this is their first vintage. Upon opening, I did a double take to make sure it wasn’t their SauvBlanc (which I love), because it poured the exact same color (very faint gold) and had a very similar nose (lime rind, limestone, kiwi). This begins to differ on the palate where acidity is fairly low in comparison. Melon, honeydew and some lemon highlight the finish. As this wine oxidized and warmed up, it gained more complexity and heft. I’d actually have no problem letting this age a few years. — 7 days ago
Color : White
Wine estate : Taittinger
Designation : Champagne
Name : Brut Réserve
Country : France
Vivino : 4/5
Note : Excellent champagne value for money. This one is the special FIFA World Cup. It is a little more refreshing than the reserve. Fine bubbles in her bright golden robe. On the palate, a creaminess with citrus flavors and a final more than correct.
Excellent champagne rapport qualité prix. Celui-là est le spécial Coupe du Monde de Football. Il est un peu plus rafraichissant que la réserve. Des bulles fines dans sa robe dorée claire. En bouche, une onctuosité avec des saveurs d’agrumes et un final plus que correcte.

With its aromas and flavors of lime ice, grapefruit pith, white peach, anise and minerals, this vibrant, penetrating blend of Roussanne and Viognier may be Washington’s best white wine bargain. And its tactile texture and brisk acidity make it supremely accommodating at the dinner table. $16.00 (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, September 2018)

Definition of Sauvage. I felt a little dirty after drinking this, but I was smiling. Cloudy orange. “25% each of Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, Marsanne, Ortrugo, and an as-yet unidentified variety from the lower slopes of the vineyard.” 7-10 weeks on skins. #RomoWine — 11 days ago
The bubbles are cheery enough despite their quick disappearance. The nose is floral, and that's an understatement. Bouquets of flowers are in this bouquet. On the sip, things only get better and sweeter. It's not sugar overload, though. It's a nice, sweet, flirty, pleasant sweetness - not for dessert, but for anytime. — 14 days ago
Color is very intriguing, probably the lightest pale yellow I've ever seen.
Nose has dried citrus, dried fruits and a touch of alcohol.
Palate is clean and floral; white flowers, honey, touch of beeswax maybe, light oak influence.
70% Roussanne & 30% Marsanne
I think this is mostly closed for business, we'll revisit tomorrow and the rest in like a 5-8 years.
24hr Update: Slight improvement, honey with minor lemon skin notes. — 4 days ago
