Vintage 2009 | Blend from 50% Cot and 50% Cabernet Franc. This wine must be misunderstood by many in the ten years before. When you pop and pour it is harsh and stubborn! Even now it needs an overnight in the decanter to show it’s beauty and velvety structure. Nice red summer fruit. Paired with pork. — 5 days ago
Tonight it was time to open my 2007 Domaine Huet Le Mont Demi-Sec Vouvray.
On the nose there is peach, apricot, persimmon, baked apple, lime, honeydew melon, jasmine and brioche.
On the palate we have wonderful notes of peach, honeysuckle, honeycomb, ripe yellow apple, lime, ginger and minerals.
This wine is medium bodied with a viscous mouthcoating mouthfeel and with this age still has mouthwatering medium + acidity that moves smoothly into a medium+ to long peach lemon mineral finish. What a treat. I thought this may be past its prime but no it is still wonderful. Just goes to show you the Loire Chenin Blanc age gracefully. Happy hump day and enjoy the end of the week. Stay safe and continued health. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 8 days ago
Shockingly good rose bubbles! This is 70/30 Cab Franc/Gamay, and the Cab Franc really shines. Deep rosy copper color with expressive notes of strawberry, peach, rosemary, creme brûlée, and warm bread. Served with a cheese plate and fruit. Drinks way better than it should for $20. — 12 days ago
Consistently great winery. La Butte is delicious and easy going expression of Gamay. Bouquet full of strawberry, spices and wet wood. Well balanced, fresh with soft tannins. — 5 days ago
