over the weekend:
2017 Thymiopoulos Xinomarvo Jeunes Vignes - like a greek beaujolais. Very quaffable with enough going on to keep it interesting
2017 Domaine Ostertag Reisling les Jardins - good value entry level reisling. Great acidic cut.
2015 Eric Texier St. Juien en St. Alban - just a baby. Earthy, red fruits & very clean for a texier.
2017 Bianco di Ampeleia - Like i said when i returned it "i know its a weird wine. I know its supposed to be orange, but this is corked - all wet cardboard - dont believe me? you try it".
2017 Jean-Claude Chanudet 'La Cuvee du Chat' - like the greek wine above, but legit bojo origin and les tannic influence. Crunchy, bright red fruit with enough going on to keep it interesting.
2016 Caespes Poggio Timorasso - My first timorasso - very full mouth feel, brusied apple/pear notes with lemon acidity. Notes of straw/hay. Will definetly seek out more timorasso.
2015 Vietti Perbacco - a wine i have long been a fan of, but this vintage let me down. came across muted and one-dimensional. lacked the ususal tannic backbone and acidity i associate with this cuvee. Could be the heat, could be that some of the better grapes went to other cuvees, or something else entirely. Glad i tried it before buying a case.
