Domaine Laporte

Les Grandmontains Sancerre Pinot Noir

Lovely tart juice a la Loire Valley, perhaps my favorite sip of the entire trip #winedads #france2016 #FRavorites — a year ago

Bonneau du Martray

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2009

Young Bonneau du Martray; just linear, oak though a big presence is layered, nose awfully restrained and fruit basically hidden until it evolves some more; try in a decade maybe two; so slight but so tight; acid tucked behind the wood too; an evolution to happen; great Corton; an even better site when I drove past this vineyard in May this year; #drinkFrance #drinkburgundy #côtedor #cortoncharlemagne #corton #bonneaudumartray #grandcru #domaine #2009 #uncorkedandcultivated #wineandfoodtours #France2016 — 2 years ago

Visited Rene last year; tasted 2013; he is careful to not overblow his viognier; keeps it taut and consequently more drinkable. #uncorkedandcultivated #wineandfoodtours #france2016 #france2017
