Chateau Feuillet

Valle d'Aosta Petite Arvine 2018

OMG so good. Goes great with basil pesto!! 1 hr later: OK I can’t stop drinking this. It’s got a lot of fruit like a Sauvignon Blanc but then this super saline finish. It’s just so balanced and perfect.. — 3 days ago

Valle Isarco / Eisacktaler Sylvaner 2020

Delectable Wine
9.0

The 2020 Sylvaner is sharply focused with lemon oils, savory herbs and young peach forming its bouquet. It’s round and soothing on the palate with sweet florality, ripe orchard fruits and a core of juicy acidity. Confectionery spice and candied citrus linger on the medium length finish. $12.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, June 2022) — 8 days ago

Mariatinto

Vino Tinto Tempranillo Blend 2019

Really well balanced red blend from Baja California. Ripe fruit balanced well with acidity. Improved with time, so could use a solid decant. Great with pizza. — 20 days ago

L’Emerico Pinot Noir 2017

I agree with Eric Guido’s note on this wine, but I rate it slightly higher. This is quite light in color. It has nice zippy, sappy, sweet red fruits. The mouthfeel is velvety. The finish is long. All that being said, there is still a mountain quality to this. I paid $39. Worth it. — 5 days ago

A rare gamay disappointment, and I’ve enjoyed this producer before. Sorry, @Romain Fitoussi — 20 days ago

Blanc de Morgex et de la Salle Prié Blanc 2020

Really enjoyed. One of the more unique wine bottles I’ve seen, which is fun - but more importantly the wine has great balance, hint of fruit, wonderful refreshing green apple acid. — 19 hours ago

Enfer D'Arvier Petit Rouge 2020

Whew came swimmin’ out this bouquet cause it is rich and enriching, cedar, clove, baking spices, forest floor, the spice of fresh velvet.

Only 16 cases were made and the little wine shop on Jones Street, Jones Street Wine, was nice enough to let me get my hands on one of their last bottles (1 of 5).

Crunchy — ✔️
Brambly — ✔️
Luscious — ✔️

Mouthwateringly good. Nice balance of spice and acid to wake up the buds. Little to no bitterness. Punchy fruit punches through. And that wonderful clove essence throughout.

Few wines make me write longer notes, but when I find one that does, I can’t seem to stop talking about them.

Aight time to drink it though…

Maison Anselmet

Petite Arvine 2020

This is a seldom encountered grape that makes a delicious wine. At Anselmet they give it a light wood treatment and lees stirring by rotating the barrels. The wine has crisp acidity and flavors of lemon, white peach, pear, wet stone. With 13.5% abv the wine has a surprising ripeness s as well as medium body. Wonderful silky texture and it marries perfectly with Valle d’Aosta’s traditional fontina cheese-based specialties. A bit pricey (but typical of this Alpine region) and well worth it. Delicious — a month ago
