  • Châteauneuf-du-Pape session (Extra Space): 2nd time trying this lovely wine.
    Appearance is clear, pale intensity, yellow-gold colour. Legs.
    Nose is clean, medium+ intensity, with aromas of floral honeysuckle, salty + stony minerality, ripe citrus fruit,. Developing.
    On the palate, I now think this is dry, bright high acidity, medium alcohol, medium body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of citrus lemon, sweet apple, honeysuckle, salty + stony minerality. Long finish.
    Very good acidity and nice mineral streak.
    Very good quality. Enjoy and will still develop over next 10 years.

  • Yellow pale gold. Lovely lifted quite rich nose of honey, some nuttiness and citrus notes. Quite a complex medium to full bodied palate reinforcing the nose but all kept in check with fresh acid - more than I expected of a 2009. This will be lovely over the next 5 years.

  • High Acidity Whites (Extra Space): Tasted blind. Pop and ppured and drank over 2 hours.
    Appearance is clear, pale intensity, yellow-gold colour. Legs.
    Nose is clean, medium+ intensity, with aromas of floral honeysuckle, honey, stony minerality, citrus lime. Developing.
    On the palate, off-dry, bright high acidity, medium alcohol, medium body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of citrus lemon-lime, green apple, honey, honeysuckle, stony minerality. Long finish.
    Beautiful acidity and lovely balance with just a touch of sweetness. This had me guessing a good Riesling at first.
    Very good quality. Can drink now, and will continue to develop nicely over the next 10 years.

  • Color - med yellow, heading towards golden. Palate - vibrant citrus with apple and pear. Persistent drive on the finish.

    Nose - fresh fruit salad served over crushed rock. Oily.

    Palate-coating but fresh and lively at the same time. Powdery minerality on the palate. Tastes totally dry to me. Very bright citrusy/acidic finish.

    Day 3 - still packed pretty tight. Tons of citrus/crushed stone/minerality.

    (François Chidaine Montlouis Les Bournais) Whether this cuvée is dry or sweet depends on the vintage. The vines are 15 years old, and François described the terroir here as more like Vouvray, without flint. In 2009 it shows a wonderful minerality on the nose, all crumbly volcanic rocks; this is very expressive. It has a lovely minerality here, a softer texture than 2008 and 2007, but still with a wonderfully vibrant acidity and minerality. This is definitely one of the better sec cuvées from François Chidaine in this vintage. It has an almost soapy character, but I still really like it. This should be great.
