Just to get these out of my head…

August 4, 2009

Matrot, Bourgogne Blanc 2006: Fat, slippery and wooley – almost demi-sec chenin-like. Loved it, but would like to try a cooler vintage. One of the more serious Bourgogne Blancs I’ve had. Drink with scallops.

Iche, VDP Herault, Les Heretiques 2007: Pure black fruit, clean acid, some dried herbs and ashy smoke. I can’t think of a better way to spend $9 on a red wine. Silly Summer Red Value.

Xarmant, Arabako Txakolina 2008: Electrifying. Laserbeam lemons and melon rind. Drink with tiny grilled fish – and friends.
