“It drinks like a Tawny Port.”
So basically it was one of those “what the hell does that even mean?” kind of nights. Which, in all fairness should be expected when drinking 2009 sparkling from Loire, yes? Who knows. But if molten pear surrounded by oxidized pecan nuttiness is your thing, then we have discovered common ground my friend. 100% Chenin. Reminded all of us enjoying this bottle why we continue to scratch at the abyssal library of non-mainstream wines.
Summary: ooOOOOoo Bubbles!
Where to find? For our Phoenix Locals- Defalccos Italian Deli (Scottsdale) has a few bottles left 😉
