Community Tasting Notes 5

    February 15, 2020 - That is a rustler, high bitter and acidity, nice flavours of grass and endives, good thickness but mostly rustic. Needs two more years and a lardo di Arnad.

    January 22, 2020 - This wine is made from an ancient grape called Prié Blanc. It is grown at the foot of Mount Blanc at 900-1200 meters above sea level on pre-phyloxera vines trained on a low pergola system to protect the grapes from the cold. Vinified in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks and sterile filtered before bottling.* 13% ABV.

    The wine is a bright, light to medium lemon yellow color. The nose is full of ripe pear and white peach with a sweet smelling floral aroma. The wine is bone dry on the palate but otherwise reflects the nose with a crisp mouth feel and good acidity. The finish is quite long with a little citrus leaving a saline, limestone-like feel in your mouth. The producer's tasting notes suggest a white pepper note in the wine but I didn't pick that up in the bottle I tasted. Very pleasant and enjoyable with better depth than I expected. I usually I like even my whites to get some air but in this case the wine seemed best to me in the first 20-30 minutes after opening. Interesting first time tasting this.

    *Paraphrased description from the producer's website.

    January 5, 2020 - My 2nd time trying this in the last month.

    The nose has saline "sea breeze" notes - I may have compared this to Muscadet and I think that still works, but I could see someone calling this blind as a wine from either Savoie or the Jura as well.

    Light-bodied and savory on the palate. Very likable.

    December 24, 2019 - I just tried a glass of the '16, and this wine is similarly severe on the palate. I like this a little better than the older wine, and once again this does have a nice sea breeze scent on the nose, with a saline component that is positively saliva-inducing, but these wines make Muscadet seem full-bodied.

    November 10, 2019 - Clean palette, medium acidity,medium body and finish. Thyme, green apple, and white peach on the nose, Asian pear and a hint of quince paste on the finish.
