Domaine Potinet-Ampeau

Charmes Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay

Ripe lemon, tangerine and lime pith encircle a warm tropical melange. There are endive sentiments and echoes of ocean brine.
lemon is a big player on the palate, showing three faces; zest essence and racy fruit. A touch of lime keeps it clean and the salinity brings it all home. What it lacks in complexity it doubles down on in subtlety. Def for lighter seafood dishes that need to brighten.

Domaine Jean-François Quénard

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2019

White gold glints over chatelaine. Pineapple peers through a steely mask, jasmine and magnolia softly breathe through winter’s nostrils. Meyer lemon suggestions turn zest and pith on the palate; key lime invoked. Grapefruit veins of pith peel back slowly to reveal lightning streaks of complex citruses, and squash blossom stem.

Domaines Schlumberger

Les Princes Abbés Alsace Pinot Gris 2014

Classic Pinot Gris from south facing slopes in the Guebwiller valley in Alsace. Off dry on the palate with some apple, pear and a touch of citrus. With good acidity and minerality, the wine did open up some more in the glass. Still youthful, it had a very refreshing mouthfeel. This would pair well with fois gras and soft cheeses.

Domaine Delaporte

Chavignol Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Lean aromatic spot of light, clean, almost frosted lemon, lime juice, lime pith, and gooseberry aromas. Chalky. With zippy, bright lemon zest, nectarine, dried starfruit, green-white underripe blackberries, black currant leaf, and grapefruit pith. Amazing Sancerre with buoyancy and ethereal grace.

Goutorbe-Bouillot

Reflets de Riviere Brut Damery Champagne Blend

Goutorbe-Bouillot Reflets de Rivière Brut, Champagne. Blend of 60% Meunière, 20%Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay from vines near the village of Damery. Very traditional , fruity and complex , yet still has good acidity and freshness. I can imagine it will develop some more with age. Very enjoyable wine. Used it to wash down it a turkey burger. #champagne #frenchwhitewine #goutorbe-bouillon #villageofdamery #refletsderiviere #nicholaspearce #growerschampagne #nonvintagechampagne #champagneanytime — 4 years ago
