    July 9, 2017 - Glorious. Clean, mean mineral bomb. The fruit is lean like glass. The ozone and rainy pavement envelop lemony goodness. Slight touch of oxidation around the edges. In a perfect spot. Drink up with some light foods.

    July 4, 2016 - Brine, sea salt, sea shells, lemon lime zest, just delicious and light. Drinking well now, probably will improve.

    June 15, 2016 - There's a distinct green tint to the medium yellow color. I normally perceive a good deal of citrus in the aromas of Briords but in this instance that seems to be sharing the stage with something reminiscent of the seashore: almost oyster liquor-like. The citric twang pushes forward on the palate and reminds me of the yellow-skinned variety of sweet limes. Amazing, really, that a nine year old $13 wine is this vibrant and interesting.

    November 27, 2015 - Light greenish yellow. Herbal/algal aromas. Light weight but a lovely layer of glycerine. More fruit (orange) than it has shown before, vanilla bean, and then a powerful finish of acid and soil that leaves a dusting of stone on the tongue. Tremendous, as fresh as it was 2 years ago, and as always, amazing return on a $15 investment. That won't change over the next decade, either.

    (Domaine de la Pépière Muscadet Sèvre & Maine sur lie Clos des Briords) A lovely nose, creamed thyme, liquid rocks, soapstone and pumice, topped off with notes of yellow pepper and yellow plum skin. Remarkable minerality! Fleshy but sappy, well defined, full of very tangible substance, broad and very mouth-filling, with all that yellow fruit coming through onto the palate too. Great style, purity and rich, fresh depth. Very fine indeed, delicious now, but a wine that will also repay keeping.
