Gruet Gold Label BrutHere the Chardonnay dominates over Pinot, with apple blossom and citrus aromas and a bright, yeasty palate with a hint of citrus peel, apricot kernel and apple pit in the finish. As the wine opens in air, apple backs off a bit to reveal lovely toasted wheat flavors.
Couly-Dutheil Les Chanteaux Blanc 2017A rare and unique Chenin Blanc with aromatic, soft and floral fruits. Dry and elegant, complex and rich. Chanteaux is a dry, round, vibrant wine with flowery aromas and a little melon, white pear, and pineapple on the palate. This wine is similar to its Loire cousin Vouvray but it has more weight and depth; it is a wonderful and unique expression of pure Chenin Blanc, and it is a wonderful and delicious break from Chardonnay.
A to Z Wineworks Riesling 2015The 2015 A to Z Oregon Riesling has exuberant, almost heady aromas of white flowers, lilac, elderflower, lime blossom, tangerine peel and lemongrass that settle down revealing nuances of lemon sorbet, green tea, talc and sea shells. The wine is bright yet rich in the mouth, impeccably balanced with a hint of sweetness, moderate acidity and nice linearity. The finish is extremely long, crisp and ultimately refreshing with lingering flavors of flowers, lime zest and wet stones. Already drinking great, the 2015 A to Z Riesling will age and gain in complexity and depth over the next fifteen years.
Domaine Sautereau Sancerre 2017An open nose with a good varietal profile leading to notes of boxwood rhubarb, melon and fruit aromas of pear and mango. Supple in the first instance the wine shows good volume in the middle with fruity and floral accents finishing with long lingering aromatics.
Bodegas La Val Albariño 2017The wine has an intense and clean straw-yellow colour with bright green tones. On the nose it shows aromas of fresh herbs and laurel with fine floral and lemon notes as well as white stone fruits. In the mouth it is fresh and rich , with citrus notes and a long finish. Perfect with all kinds of seafood and fish, as well as fresh cheese, foie-gras, chicken, rice dishes and pasta.
