NYC Wrap-Up

June 9, 2009

New York, I love ya:

Conti di Buscareto Verdicchio di Castelli de Jesi, 2007 Le Marche: Soft and floral, with fuller-than-expected midpalate weight and less-than-expected acidity for the varietal.

Francois Pinon Vouvray Petillant Brut (2006?): Expansive and lush, with damp forest, yellow peach, and quince. Almost completely dry. It was more expressive with airtime and less of a chill on it. Chicken in the house.

Txomin Etxaniz, Txakoli Getaria 2007: Lightly floral and limey with a searing acidity and lift. So fresh, so summery. Shellfish come hither.

Abbazia di Novacella Muller Thurgau 2007, Alto Adige: Shuerebe-like aromas of tangerine, candied orange, and gravel. Deceivingly dry.

Rolly Gassmann Auxerrois 2001, Alsace: A little fresh pea, asparagus, lemon, funk, nuts and grass. A drop of residual sugar adds fullness and counterpoint to the twirl of bitterness on the finish and the great acidity on the front end. Very cool. Worth seeking out more….
