Boug Gloug if you ask me. Its tantalizing fuschia hue reels you in, before you know it you're eye to eye with an intellectual dressed in jeans and a tshirt but the more you smell the sexier she becomes...its terroir full of subtleties shines in your face, and across the palate, and hints of pepper over the raspberry, strawberry bliss makes you wonder why all wines can't be so beautifully simple and yet authentically complex. — 4 days ago
I love this grape and region. I can't visit Swiss family this summer, but this wine takes me there. Limestone, restrained acidity, yet expertly balanced. Maybe the best Chasselas I've tried. Relatively light, and meant for apéro or fish. I had it with sushi, then the rest of the bottle with goat cheese and herb ravioli, blistered tomatoes, capers and pesto sauce. Both were great pairings 🙌 12% abv. — 10 days ago
Take out from Barcelona — great with the mushrooms and goat cheese and paella. Really delicious temperanillo, would definitely buy again — 12 days ago
Very pleasant wine. Was a gift from my neighbor- what a great surprise! Enjoyed with chicken with goat cheese and carrot / sweet pepper agrodolce courtesy of Blue Apron. Valpocella has a smooth mouth feel with dark fruit, mineral and smoke. Delightful. — 10 days ago
Pale straw and slightly opaque in the glass, nose is warm and inviting with lemon, stones, dried flowers and honey. This is ripe and broad but with more than enough cut to keep it refreshing, with juicy green pear, lemon verbena, almond, dried flowers and herbal notes. Would go great with anything Mediterranean or a nice grassy goat cheese — 25 days ago
Delicious! Had it with herbed goat cheese toasts drizzled with marinated sundried tomatoes in olive oil. Perfect pairing. I really enjoyed it. It’s funky and earthy but not too much. Slightly effervescent. Definitely not your typical Sauv Blanc. — 23 days ago
I’m not a big Bordeaux drinker, but I love this one. Had it with salmon, goat cheese and spinach crepes, but it would go with anything red-worthy. Great fruit/mineral/tannin balance. Complex red blend of 65% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 3% Carmenere, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Sauvignon Blanc, 1% Sauvignon Gris, 1% Semillon, 1% Muscadelle. Whew! — 4 hours ago
The Swiss Army knife my father gifted to me in 2002 on a trip to Niagara Falls has been a prized object in my life. From etching initials into tree bark to camping to building furniture to opening bottles of wine, this glorified knick knack has transcended that category for me and will always have its place on my desk wherever I may be.
Rich and creamy bouquet. Black pepper and vanilla and unusually, goat cheese.
Light in terms of tannins, but a medium to high acidity makes this stand out. Intense red cherries. Packs a punch berry fruit up front, the acidity rushes in at the midpoint and then ends with a slight, yet welcome, astringent note. — 12 days ago
A barrel aged Sauv Blanc!? Still light in color but a bit more golden. Very subtle and weird nose when opened, getting more peaches and tropical fruits a few days later. Bigger body and silky ("weighty") and more creamy and vanilla bean notes. Table Wine online Get to Know Sauv Blanc class, and my #gotm2020 for May! Wasn't a huge fan at class, hi enjoying a few days later with baked goat cheese! — 10 days ago
