Lichtenberger-Gonzalez

Vorderberg Blaufränkisch 2012

you better have this vinery on your screen! one of my personal discoveries at vievinum 2014. super likeable winemakers (each of them in a bread-and-butter job with big names and at their own little estate as well).

homeplay. one of my favourite blaufränkisch!
for me comparable look and feel to prieler's "goldberg", which is a BIG yardstick! elegant, cool type with complex palate and just the right arc of suspense. makes me smile ~~

so i correct my entry line:
you better have this vinery in your cellar!

Raised By Wolves Sémillon 2016

Not always a fan of orange wine or semillon, but they seem to have found the sweet spot for both. This was delicious! — a year ago

Solo project by Adam Mason from Mulderbosch. Sourced from 3 distinct sites. Alluring juicy yellow Apple and lemon meringue, marshmallows and a creaminess that comes from something other than malo. Not in the States, alas. — 3 years ago

Domaine Ramonet

Les Enseignères Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2011

9.2

2011 vintage: Pretty damn good for a lieu dit. Served after a way more intense over-worked new world Chardonnay, the complexity and subtle power of this was both refreshing and gloriously satisfying. Brilliant pale lemon appearance; yardstick cx bouquet w hint of sulphide, oak, sexy poached white peach; xlnt vif on entry, racy savoury mid palate w a hint of salinity with its textured white stone fruit flavours. Long, delicious. Just YUM!

(Meant to mention this Lieu Dit is right near all the Grand Crus )
