Côte à Côte Estate Paso Robles Grenache Blend 2019

Drank it early (needs more air). But it feels like 93. All the balance of a great Chateauneuf. — 6 days ago

Romance Domaine de la Côte Chardonnay 2020

Sandhi ‘Romance’ Chardonnay (2020) is made exclusively with grapes from the Domaine de la Côte estate vineyards, farmed organically, within the Sta Rita Hills AVA of the Central Coast region of California.

After a wild-yeast fermentation, this wine aged 10 months in neutral oak and 6 months in tank. It is textured with flinty mineral notes, next to layered aromas and flavors of toast, cream, cheese rind, white blossom, lime zest and just-ripe apple, pear, white peach, nectarine, honeydew, and starfruit. It is precise, elegant, and nuanced.

It has a freshness and vibrancy with a textured mouthfeel, bright acidity, and a delicately reductive character. At 12.8% ABV, this wine sits firmly within the medium alcohol range, speaking to the cooling coastal winds that are prevalent in the Sta Rita Hills AVA.

It’s absolutely delicious and a versatile culinary complement.

Cheers to Sandhi and beautiful, terroir-driven California Chardonnays!

Eclat de Granite Côte Roannaise Gamay 2022

Spicy and earthy nose, with some unidentifiable ripe red fruits. Very light and balanced, forward. Again, more ripe fruits but can't identify. — 2 months ago

La Côte des Monts Damnés Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2023

Bright light golden color. Fragrant aromas of baked apple and pear along with notes of white flowers and wet stones. The palate is full of apple, pineapple and orange flavors. Hint of baking spices on the very long and chalky finish. Quite full bodied, intense and powerful. Rich and concentrated mouthfeel. Thanks Kase! — a month ago

La Grande Côte Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Popped and poured. “Oh, hello friend!” This is what Sancerre is supposed to smell/taste like. Herbs and star fruit. Pyrazines are not prominent (long hang time has something to do with that). On the palate, the wine is dry and has simply wonderful acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is long and unbelievably chalky. This is a baby with a very bright life ahead. What a treat to get an early glimpse of the brilliance to come. Unfortunately, it’s getting harder and harder to find Sancerre like this. Drink now if you have multiples and you can appreciate the potential. Better after 2027. — 4 months ago
