Chánselus Castes Brancas Ribeiro White Blend 2015

Mixed feelings, mixed review: very inward nose, crushed wildflowers with some sourness; strong piss yellow color; on the palate, white petals, some dry nectarine pith, soft acidity. Could masquerade as a funky white Rhône? But it’s not, it’s Spanish, Ribeiro. . And rare. And expensive. A few double sips as wondered if corked. A strange if not enjoyable wine. — 10 days ago

Domaine André et Mireille Tissot

Bénédicte et Stéphane Tissot Crémant du Jura Sparkling Blend

Starting to consider hoarding wine instead of TP. Building a bunker for this one... Enjoyed at a social distance with some friends, some general anxiety and a few fears for the future. “Purchased by Jamie, drunk by Toni” — 10 days ago

Old Vine Heinstein Vineyard White Blend 2015

Medium gold in the glass....funky, cheesy, goodness. Forest floor, ripe pear, touch of Brie, musk melon, with some serious weight as it warms. I don’t know if I’d pour this for my sister-or mother-in-law, but all my wine-nerd friends would swoon and pontificate. The wine sings like Beyonce, and takes off and soars. Not sure I want many of these, but fun and pushing the vinous envelope. Dry and balanced, just out-there. — 9 days ago

Centobricchi Langhe Bianco 2017

This 100% Viognier is a star bright green gold. Old bananas and fresh white flowers on the abundant nose. Full bodied complex palate yields all sorts of stuff: banana, magnolia petal, underripe and overripe tropical fruits, white pepper, white peach, and on and on. Finish is medium long and doesn’t fade into that darkness typical of many white Rhône varieties. Medium minus acidity, of course. This is classic Viognier. Very varietally typical in every way. Enjoy on its own or with rich “white wine” dishes , especially cream sauces or roasts poultry. Drink now through 2022. — 14 days ago

I don’t think I’ve ever had a Viognier from Italy!sounds interesting.

@Winston Jones - I’m finding that the regions close to “other places” (Alto Adige, Piemonte, Valle d’Osta, Lombardia) do remarkably well with varieties from those “other places.” Piemonte isn’t that far from the Rhône. I got a Condrieu in this month’s WFL case. Should be an interesting comparison.

Clos Idylle Cruet Vin de Savoie White Blend 2017

This is a dark horse. It’s actually fantastic, but you’d never suspect it. Mineral crisp. — 5 days ago

Dry Stack Vineyard White Blend 2016

Adding to @Ron R‘s prior notes, this is holding up strong. Nose still is intensely perfumed, showing the a tropic fruit wet stone thing. Piña Colada. The tension is still firmly there too, carrying through to a lingering finish. — 5 days ago

Cuvee 741 Extra Brut Champagne

Very tight at first, this reveals itself with still doughy apple pastry notes, green apple skins and seeds, lemon and lemon zest and a clean mineral nose with something almost reminiscent of swimming pool (not in a bad way). Palate is mineral and focused with lots of acid leading into the finish. Just starting to develop a honeyed note. Pleasurable if a little austere, will be better in 2-3 years. 2013 harvest, disgorged 2018 — 5 days ago
