    June 23, 2021 - 100% Pinot Blanc. Youthful, aromas of green apple, a little coffee and a little grapefruit (bitterness). Extremely high acidity. The wine develops very positively in the glass and after some time the wine's reductive notes luckily fade away and more distinct brioche aroma shows up. Ends as an excellent btl. Has the special flavour from Pinot Blanc which I also find in Cedric Bouchard's 100% Pinot Blanc Bolorée. Can drink now but I would keep it in the cellar for some years.

    April 23, 2021 - Book Club - Reunited (Steve's Place): Blind: I guessed Pinot Blanc because the last flight was PM and this didn't come across as PN or Chardonnay. Stab in the dark.

    Nice wine but I'm guessing PB won't change the world. Fine bubbles, well made, and enjoyable but just missing that little something to make it stand out. The fruit was peach/melon which made it fun.

    April 22, 2021 - Bookclub--Wines Tasted Blind: Poured blind. My second bottle this month, same disgorgement of May 2019. 100% Pinot Blanc, no dosage, created from 65 year old vines on Kimmeridgian soil, farmed biodynamically. This really showed a nice floral aromatic last night. Juicy and round, lots of flavor and yet with the absence of dosage, there is still some austerity here that I enjoy. Cantaloupe melon, spearmint and a wet stone finish. I really like this wine and I'm intent on trying more off Piollot's cuvees.

    April 15, 2021 - When I visited Dominique Moreau at Marie Courtin a few years back, I was able to try a little of Roland Piollot's wines, who is Dominique's husband. He was driving the forklift that day as there was disgorgement going on at the winery. Since then, I hadn't opened any of the wines but recently I grabbed a couple of this 100% Pinot Blanc cuvee to check in. 65 year old vines on Kimmeridgian soil. This is zero dosage, farmed organic (although the estate is now farming biodynamic), disgorged May 2019, which gave the wine almost 4 years on the lees....pretty cool. This is flat out delicious, with tiny, persistent bubbles. A pure lemon to the wine, with some melon when cool. As it warms and aerates, the texture becomes juicier, yet the energy in the wine broadens out. It then picks up pineapple and pear, dried lime with plenty of saline coming from the soil, and I suspect the lack of dosage. You might be able to fool some folks that this wasn't pure Chablis, as it has the clean, mineral lines and flavors of Chard from that area. This was $49 US and is worth a reload. Lovely stuff.
