Thillardon, Chenas Les Blemonts, 2019

Expectations

The wine is cellared for some years, but I’ve had very good experience otherwise around the ten year mark.

I expect it to be excellent. I haven’t tried it yet. Saving it probably for Thanksgiving dessert.

Pleasant, lacks rose fragrant joy

Laherte Freres, Champagne Extra Brut Rose de Meunier, NV

Interesting

Floral notes but not overwhelming

Ten Plus

Excellent. Of the first five of the twelve Rieslings in the order, this was the best. However, we are drinking in an expected ascending order of even better, so we still have a good seven to go.

low Cost and fine Pinot

Silky and delicious. Amazing entry level Pinot!

A delightful and complex biodynamic Vouray

Golden yellow, lots of ripe fruit on the nose. Sweet but with enough minerality and a good deal of acidity for balance. For me, this wine has apple, pear & some peach on the palate and grapefruit on the finish. Fresh and complex; this is a delicious wine.

Crazy Value in Bordeaux

I've been working through a whole case of this and will surely get another when I'm done. Decant for an hour plus. Lose a few at the back of your wine fridge since this only going to get better in the next few years.

lively verdicchio

sharp, acidity, aroma of wet open field. simple in a good way. second glass nearly as good as first.

Very Nice

More mineral than fruit. Very satisfying; had with roasted chicken and Mac & Cheese. We liked it and will buy more in the future.

Elegant

The Saumur is gorgeous, as are the Bougogne and Bourgueil recommended by the onsite sommeliers. And the price-point is perfect.

Muscadet

I really enjoy the Muscadet selections you have offered over the years. I especially enjoy the Domaine de la a Bregonnette. It is a clean, crisp, and easy to drink wine that drinks well alone and certainly pairs with grilled fish, shrimp, scallops, oysters, etc. I also think it pairs well with chicken. A lovely find.

I’m ordering more!

Well, I opened a bottle a couple weeks ago. I can’t remember tasting notes, but what I do remember is the three of us drinking the wine all loved it.

Fontvert rose - perfect summer wine

First petnat I’ve bought and I’m sure I’ll be buying more. Refreshing, balanced, fun. Bubbles seem different from champagne - not better or worse, just different. Great suggestions by flatiron.

Winemaker Pascal Janvier rediscovers this small Chenin Blanc appellation

This organic Chenin Blanc from the Jasnieres appellation is a great find and a great value. It has floral aromas and a bit of honey sweetness on the palate. It’s very refreshing with a bit of mineral and enough acid to hold its own with the honey and fruit notes.

A fun sparkling Chenin Blanc that’s a wonder summer wine but is good any time

This organic Chenin Blanc is minerally and very fresh with a touch of sweetness & citrus. Don’t be put off by the bottle cap; this wine is way too good and so easy to drink.

Run out and buy thi Chenin Blanc

This Chenin Blanc from Pascal Janvier has a bit of a floral nose with melon, citrus and mineral on the palate. It’s fresh, has complexity, and good acidity. It’s a great value at this price.

Why I love Julien Barge, Saint-Joseph "Clos De La Ribaudy", 2017

A gorgeous wine offering all the structure and earthy minerality I expect from the Northern Rhone. Its totally approachable now but will also age beautifully. What a steal!
