    July 20, 2011 - Oh my. Soaring nose of buttery popcorn with this intense nuttiness mixed with dried herbs, roasted lemon, and tangerine rind. Super balance. This wine is extremely complex and delightful. Love it.

    (Jacques Puffeney Arbois Cuvée Sacha) Light lemon yellow color; butter, hazelnut, savory, mineral nose; buttery textured, tasty, very tangy, tart lemon, mineral, baked lemon palate with depth and medium acidity; medium-plus finish (nice to have a good bottle of this again; the one a few days ago with so much reduction was clearly just an anomaly)

    (Jacques Puffeney Arbois Cuvée Sacha) Sulfur, reduction nose; nutty, reduction palate that exhibits just too much sulfur to be appealing; medium finish (roughly 50/50 Savagnin and Chardonnay, hence the name; I really enjoyed and bought a bottle of this several months back, so I'm hoping my bottle doesn't show the reduction that this one did)

    (Jacques Puffeney Arbois Cuvée Sacha) Light lemon yellow color; intriguing, baked lemon, smoke, browned butter, baked apple nose; complex, baked lemon, browned butter, apple betty, smoke, mineral palate with tangy acidity; long finish (should be awesome with some smoky charcuterie)
