Popped and poured. No evidence of bricking, nice ruby color. Nice nose with fruit elements, very spry. Mature fruit but amazing for a 16 year old Bourgogne to show this well. A great producer

this is what im talking about.

cru beaujolais is ageable and underrated.

mineral laced. iron/blood. loamy and earthy like very good pinot. balanced and complex. good acid. lighter bodied, and elegant. love love love to drink this without food just sip it right up.

2017 Domaine Trotereau Quincy Sauvignon Blanc
Taste TOP Wines for July (San Diego Wine Co.): WAY too cold

From a 10.64 ha vyd planted from 1985-2008 in "sandy, silex-ridden topsoil with an undercurrent of pink limestone;" Typically, "Indigenous yeasts for fermentation with 24-72 hrs of cold soaking before fermentation begins; Fermentation lasts 15 days to 1 mo in s/s tanks. Malolactic blocked; Wine raised in s/s & enamel tanks;"

N: FRAGRANT *gooseberries* with notes of spice & minerals coming on

P: Med body; Very RNDISH entry with NICE, almost swtish frt buttressed by a BRISK acidity which is the face of the wine into & through the LONG, tangy finish with ult a subtle (honied?) swtness. FASCINATING stuff for now & through '20 min, though if acidity is not PARTICULARLY your "thing", you might want to cellar this 6 mos or so. 13.5% ABV; My EXC-/EXC. [This vendor's $15.99 is $3 < wine-searcher's lowest.]

  • TedStriker commented:

    7/29/19, 5:39 PM - Apologies—I did see that about your scoring methodology but apparently misread it. I recently read that Trotereau replaced Kermit's previous Quincy producer upon the vigneron's retirement following the '05 vintage.

I'm not a big fan of Kermit's co-created wines, but this one was at the top of the heap for the value $. It was very interesting with savory and fruity in good balance. It tasted real and served well over the space of 3 days from gassed/refrigerated bottle.
If you've had bad experiences with Lynch labels this wine should turn your head and give to you an exception.
6.5/10

Brambly red fruit on the nose. Very mouthfulling - a big Brouilly that still retains great acidity and lift. Just a tad spiky, but overall it handles the vintage really well.

Acceptable but unexciting. On the nose, light strawberries and earthiness. On the palate, tart, tangy and chalky with a relatively long finish. This CDR should be decanted and would pair well with beef, however, I would recommend shelling out an additional ten bucks on a more memorable bottle.
