Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2013 Domaine Florent Garaudet Meursault with shellfish and fish dinner tonight. Pale yellow color and packed with intense lemon, white flowers, raw hazelnuts and steely focus. Drinks better at room temperature than when cold as it feels austere when it comes out of the fridge. Lovely wine, great value, Florent Garaudet stands out to me as one of those winemakers who I want to buy from every vintage and across his portfolio. What a great winemaker in Fass Selections portfolio.
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.
