Community Tasting Notes 5

    November 22, 2020 - Very Raj+Sashi in that this is pure French, summoned from New World. Very Chablis at first. With decanting and temperature White Burg appears. Both with a drop more fruit than their old world counterpoints. Very enjoyable already and I’d venture this will age beautifully for a decade+.

    August 16, 2020 - One of A_M's contributions to a night of socially-distanced, outdoor wine tasting in surprisingly warm SF. Not sure how long this had been open when I arrived, its cool temp was just right. Nose of flint with notes of green apples and Meyer lemons. Chalky texture with river rock notes gives this one of the more White Burg reminiscent mouthfeels of a new world chard I've had and was a delightful contrast to the '14 Aubert. Silvery, medium bodied, light legs, moderate acidity. Moderate+ complexity, intensity and persistence. We drank mostly as a standalone, but I think that this would be an awesome accompaniment to the usual poultry and seafood, probably far better than the Aubert. Elegant and subtle, this would fall just outside the top tier of CA chards but on this night, had the bad luck to be next to the outstanding Aubert. Low alcohol and acidity gives the sense that this should have a solid decade of excellent life from here. Recommended if you can get this around the $70 low price on WS.

    August 15, 2020 - Socially distanced wine tasting and pizza (My place in San Francisco): Too gentle for my tastes. Nicely balanced wine, but didn't stand out in any particular way, especially next to the other wines this night.

    Pale yellow in color. Nose of earth and soft stone/tropical fruits.

    The fruit wasn't showing strong, the oak was just barely noticeable, and the low ABV didn't help with structure.

    More seasoned wine drinkers said it was almost Burgundian.

    Nice wine, but I prefer other chardonnay at this price, e.g. William Cole.
