  • ucbeau Does not like this wine:

    October 5, 2013 - Tired and oxidized. Lots of heat from the alcohol. This is usually a very reliable producer for me.

    September 24, 2013 - PnP. Deep gold in color, unlike any CA or NZ SB. Beautiful nose of honey, tuberose, jasmine, and a bit of lemon. Palate marked by honeydew, some apple, and even a hint of clove. As strange as that may sound, it certainly tastes great. Nice soft mouthcoating texture with just the right amount of acidity to keep it fresh. Long, lingering finish. Every time I have a great Sancerre such as this, I keep telling myself I need to drink Sancerre more often. Absolutely fantastic bottle. Bummed it was my last.

    Enjoyed in a Riedel Vinum Sauvignon Blanc glass at about 53­°F.

    September 8, 2013 - Sunday Brown Bag Tasting: Malbec (current releases) (Augie's): Straw yellow color featuring notes of melon, pear and waxy Rhonish qualities, turning to apple as it sits in the glass. Apple tones dominate the palate, turning bitter with time. Has a fair amount of acid too.

    January 21, 2012 - Found one last bottle of this at my local shop and jumped on it. Consistent with previous notes. We just LOVE this. I really hope the 2010 is as good. Beautiful wine with tremendous balance, and so food friendly.
