This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

A mixed bag of French

Dinner at L'Envol.

Françoise Bedel Entre Ciel et Terre - I believe the base vintage was 2010?  Nice and ripe, lovely on the palate.

2015 Domaine de la Taille aux Loups Montlouis-sur-Loire Clos de Mosny - the nose was a bit steely underneath the ripeness, a bit floral and perfumed.  Acidity was high.

2017 Gilles Berlioz El Hem - sweet nose of tropical stone fruits, flinty.
2013 Pierre Boisson Meursault - leaner with more acidity.  Some toasty oak, which got much heavier later.

2001 Kalin Bourgogne Côte de Beaune "Les Pierres Blanches" - nice and sweet fruit in the nose, very fragrant, more feminine than expected, with leather notes underneath.  A beautiful wine.

2013 Domaine de Souch Cuvée de Marie-Kattalin - lots of botrytis with a little plastic.

Full post on dinner is here.
