Reserve Napa Valley Chardonnay 2018

Ron R

A nice cool, steely chard, with a precise structure. A touch of honeycomb on the nose, with lemon zest and a waxy component on the mid palate. Oak treatment is judicious. — 3 years ago

Nice tasting

Domaine Bernard Baudry

Le Clos Guillot Chinon Cabernet Franc 2018

A lot of fun with this beautiful Cab-Franc de Loire. Dark, shiny purple color. open nose on black fruits and mineral touches of graphite. The green notes that are sometimes found prominently on this grape are discreet and let express a beautiful round and lively juice that magnifies the fruit. It is a magnificent natural wine, unfiltered. Favorite 💓

Énormément de plaisir avec ce beau Cab-Franc de Loire. Robe violine sombre, brillante. nez ouvert sur les fruits noirs et touches minérales de graphites. Les notes vertes qu’on trouve parfois sur ce cépage de manière proéminente sont discrètes et laissent s’exprimer un beau jus rond et vif qui magnifie le fruit. C’est un magnifique vin nature, non filtré. Coup de cœur 💓
