This went surprisingly well with potato dumplings with curry and siracha.

1/7/2014 - K is for Kate wrote: NR

On the first night I opened this, it came across extremely acidic and fairly light bodied. It seemed like a summery white that could do with a chill. However, after being open a few days, it seemed to put on weight, richness and complexity. It has been open 6 days now and is still drinking well, though a little faded. The acidity has mellowed out a bit and I am drinking it at cool room temperature (64).

Bright and medium bodied. This isn't really a winter red, and I would suggest waiting for spring to open it, but I still enjoyed it. Lovely acidity and a completely gorgeous aroma that jumps out of the glass even in my cold living room. I would have liked to be able to serve this a bit warmer than the 64 degrees that my apartment allows in below freezing weather.

I think I held on to this for too long and it was somewhat lackluster. The name was still a good conversation starter, though.

Decent tannin structure and somewhat enjoyable but not that interesting to me. I prefer more vegetal characteristics in my Cab Franc. I took this to a party and that's probably what I will do with the second bottle as well as I think that's the right environment for it.

Overtones of cough syrup - too much syrupy sweetness and alcohol for me.

I had my first bottle of this several years ago and it seemed disjointed. Last night, I enjoyed my second bottle MUCH more. Everything had come together and it made for pleasant drinking, though nothing profound.

NV L. Mawby Jadore Demi Sec

Leelanau Peninsula White Blend more

12/31/2013 - K is for Kate Likes this wine: NR

I should always keep this on hand for pairing with desserts. It doesn't actually come across that sweet, just fruity with nice acid, and actually tastes fairly dry when paired with sweet things, but not harsh. Perfect for my dessert wine needs. This time, we had it with chocolate and caramel fondue.

12/31/2013 - K is for Kate wrote: NR

I enjoyed this a good bit more than my last bottle. It paired well with fondue. It did seem a bit sweet compared to the non-dosage Champagne that preceded it, but hit a reasonable balance. More on the rich end of the spectrum than the precise, but light on its feet.

I think I might prefer sparkling Vouvray younger. This was nice enough, but the acid seemed subdued.

I had my last bottle with fondue again and still found that warm and snuggly quality. This has a very rounded feeling to it and I find it quite likeable though the acid doesn't shine as much as I usually like in Champagne.

I did not take detailed notes, but remember being impressed with how refreshing and precise but not at all harsh this is. There is a magical sort of balance about it. It's a joy to drink and goes down easily, but there is a lot going on if you take the time to savour.

Perhaps I should have opened this sooner. Synthetic cork. I'm not sure whether this was faded due to this or just not very vibrant in the first place. Seems watered down and unripe.

I enjoyed this with pizza. A bit round but just enough acidity and tannin to prevent it from being too flabby. Not terribly complex, but we popped and poured.

NV Egly-Ouriet Champagne Brut Tradition Grand Cru

Champagne Blend more

12/13/2013 - K is for Kate wrote: NR

Intense stuff! Quite a distinctive Champagne that stood out in a night of sparkling wines but is not necessarily what I am usually looking for when I reach for Champagne. It's got a decent amount of acidity, which is not surprising, but it's not delicate or crystalline in feel at all. It's also not really primarily creamy or yeasty, just a lot of flavour coming through as if carried on the acid. If it's being served with others, probably best to leave it for last.

Drank from a half bottle and there still seems to be plenty of structure to allow it to age gracefully. I preferred it the next day, so decanting could be beneficial.
