Sepia filter courtesy of smoke filled skies here in Oakland. If the end of the world is coming we better get drinking. Let’s start with some regal Chasselas. Six years in the bottle this is starting to pick up some weight with hints of butterscotch on top of the lemongrass and citrus pith notes you’d expect from this stony little white. Quite delicious.

New Year's Eve is for Chasselas, duh. Saline texture and lifted aromas, C is for cookie.

Nice bright balance between rich fruit and zingy zippy crispness. Apples lemon and creme anglais.

Salty ice cubes. What I'd want in a drip IV in between alpine hut-to-hut hiking.

A great Chasselas from the Savoie. First drink was too cold and muted, but it showed some great citrus and mineral sides once it warmed in my glass. Classic alpine white.
