    March 9, 2011 - Martine's Wines Portfolio Tasting 2011 (mk Restaurant, Chicago, Illinois): I've absolutely adored this wine in the past two vintages; it's everything I think Bordeaux Blanc should be: tart, taut, mineral, maybe fleshed out a touch from the Semillon, and for god's sake lay off the fucking oak. Well, this producer does all this and offers it up at an attractive tariff. My expectations were pretty inflated, so maybe I shouldn't be too crestfallen by the fact that I didn't swoon for this as I did for the 2007 and 2008 versions. It's riper, for one thing, and that comes across not just through the fruit which at times bordered on tropical, but also as a grassy, herbaceous quality that I didn't find in the cooler previous years. Not so much that Zen inscrutability, that presence-of-absence-of-flavor that is my ideal for Sauvignon Blanc-based wines. But the kids'll like it more, and that's fine... just this once.
