Recent Winners

November 17, 2010

After a little blogcation, I’m back. I’ve had a handful of really memorable wines including some great Faury St Joseph rouge and Blanc, the 2009 Lapierre Raisins Gaulois, another great bottle of Chateau Musar Blanc, and the wines below. The Scholium were particularly noteworthy – I’ve not tried his wines in the past and am enamored with their power and scale. Yes – the are big and yes, they have lots of alcohol – but they also have great purity, freshness and an unobscured communication of soil. The Tesniere Blanc is off the charts with bright acidity, slightly flor-ish funky with some fresh apricot. The Gahier was cranberry joy and mind-bendingly pure. I need to explore more Trousseau.
