Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2005 Chateau de Coulaine Chinon Les Picasses. Geez this #wine is fantastic. Soaring nose, black fruit and oodles of violets. So fresh and complex it is ridiculous. To think that this was $26 when I bought it in 2008….I can’t help but laugh. Stunner. #france #chinon #loire #cabernetfranc #gottatrythis
I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
