A contender for the wine of the year might be in this trio. Not sure. Check back in ten days. These three are from Savio Soares I'm a Beaujolais slut and I LOVE Domaine Chamonard's Morgon, often forgetting about the Fleurie. But the 07 has finally come around as well. V. pretty. Gosh, is that all I wrote? And they call me a wine writer? I guess I was too busy drinking. Ah, Pet Nat! Annie et Philippe Bornard make gorgeous stuff out of Pupillon in the Jura! First note? Shut up and drink. After all, Tant Mieux means so much better. Well, it's a lot better than a lot of rose sparklers out there, that's for sure. I didn't want to think. I just slurped. This ploussard 08 goes gently. This is a Spot Hitter for any pink fizz drinker. With 9% alcohol, there was a slight bit of a honied finish, floral, raspberry and some sort of viscerality dancing on the tongue. YAY! (I wrote as a first note, take that!) Christian Venier's Le Clos des Carteries, 08, has great grip. This gamay/pinot blend from Cheverny in the Loire is like green walnut with a touch of fresh picked teensie strawberries, and more green walnut. Imagine the bitter and sweet of brocolli rabe with pine nuts. Fascinating.
