Weekend, au natural

June 29, 2009

No, I didn’t spend the weekend naked – but my wines did.

Francios Pinon  “Cuvee Traditional” Vouvray 2007: Slammin. Delicious tension between the seduction and the elegance. A wave of acid, a twist of bitter and twinge of sugar.

Domaine de la Pepiere “Clos des Briords” Muscadet…, 2007: Perfect and crystalline, this is a near-flawless expression of vigor, freshness and minerality.

Chateau Musar, Red “Gaston Hochar” 1997: Rediculously umami. A little hot, but pure pleasure. Ingenious in it’s composition – it didn’t feel at all like a blend of grapes – It had one-thing-ness, a higher harmony. Clearly one of the truly singular red wines of the world, bursting with character.

Clos Roche Blanche “Cuvee Gamay” Touraine, 2008: Bubblegum, twigs, black tea and cherries. My first time with this wine, and it maybe underdelivered. I will revisit the other bottle in a few months. Quality wine, no doubt, but I got way more excited by the Puzelat’s Gamay a few weeks ago.

      Thanks – I hope the other bottle of CRB will show better – I was prepared to love it and get a case! It’s hard to obtain where I am and I’m wondering if it was damaged during shipping…
      And the Pinon rocks…I enjoyed it more than the 06 and the latest Brut. ..

      unfortunately, the other bottle of CRB Gamay 2008 showed exactly the same last night….arg 😦

      I will need to try and obtain a bottle that wasn’t shipped to see if they are getting cooked….
