Clos de la Bergerie Savennières Roche aux Moines Chenin Blanc 2016

Deep Sauternes-like gold. Honey, straw, and ripe pomes on the nose. Echoed on the full-bodied palate which adds a sharp mineral streak from entry to the lengthy finish. Acidity is high, of course, and is needed to balance the effects of the 15.5% alcohol. Another winner from Nicolas Joly. A "thinking man's white" that should be comfortable at almost any table. From now through 2031. — 19 days ago

Réserve Exclusive Brut Champagne Blend

Tailgating for the first ski day of the year and kicking things off with this, because you’ve got to start off right.

Nice golden color with great small bubbles and a fizzy top. Smells of brioche, pear, and green apple. Quite dry, pleasant mouthfeel, and yellow apples and stone fruit coming through nicely.

Off to the slopes!

Clos de la Coulée de Serrant Savennières Chenin Blanc 2013

It's Christmas eve and here in Poland it's a big deal, even bigger than tomorrow actually. It's called wigilia and the big lunch/dinner starts around nightfall (3 PM currently). Traditions dictate that you don't eat meat but fish and winter vegetables (cabbage and potatoes mostly). The star of the show is carp in many different type of serving : fried, in sauce, served cold in gelée... We start eating at 3 pm and get up whenever nobody can eat another bite any more. Usually half of the food remains. Oh and needless to say, the go to drink to go along is wódka, or vodka, drank cold, in small shot glasses, straight down.
Of course I had to bring something special to add to local traditions and this time I went with this one.
The nose is made of honey and baked apples, and saffron. It's a powerful chenin nose, brought to a level I had never encountered. The palate is extremely dry and focused, with a great acid drive, some honey and apple notes all along, a great width, some nice matter and almost a sauternes like mouthfeel, without sugar. The finish is long, fresh and lasts for ever. This is chenin at its best and I heard this was one of the lesser vintages of this. I can't wait to open my 2015 bottle which is quietly waiting for the right moment to be popped open . Great stuff!
