  • 2005 Domaine des Baumard Quarts de Chaume

    12.5% vol
    No formal notes, unfortunately. Drank over a week-and-a-half. The most memorable impression was on Day 2 or 3 of a rose bush on the palate (as in flowers and the green leaves and woody stems and branches). Various citrus notes through out the tasting period. On the final drops from the bottle there is a lingering taste and sensation on the back of the palate that reminds me of coconuts. Some crème brûlée on the long finish as well.

  • 2006 Domaine Guillot-Broux Mâcon-Cruzille Le Clos

    (13% vol)
    Pale-golden color. Rich nose after immediately opening the wine. After 3 days the nose is still inviting (lemons, minerals and a "synthetic" or waxy note that I cannot put my finger on). It has a clean mouthfeel and is smooth on the palate and I really like the subtle and well integrated acidity on the finish and lingering tastes of shell fish, herbs (maybe dill) and stones. (All notes from Day 3)
    I am appreciating the novelty of this wine; un-grafted vines that grow wild (en foule?), hand picked, only one or two barrels produced a year. I still find the wines from this Domaine to be a bit "light" and I do find this wine to be a bit pricey.
    Additional notes - Very heavy bottle with a wax casing over the cork and a very deep punt. Drank out of a Bordeaux glass.

  • 2006 King Estate Muscat Craftsman Series Estate Vineyard

    (11% vol)
    Opened for a few days. Honey notes on the nose; too much sugar on the palate for me to really appreciate what I perceive as rather beautiful characteristics underneath. Acidity comes on almost a tad too much on the finish.
