  • Jean Baptiste Thibault la Duchesne Sancerre Rouge 2013


    I bought this bottle of wine from a shop the last time I was in Calais for 10 euros.Sancerre is an AOC created in 1936 [although viticulture here goes back to at least the Romans] for white wines made of the sauvignon blanc grape from 15 communes around the small hilltop town of that name on the west bank of the Loire river about 80 miles south...

  • Hi all!Hoping to wade into interesting wine talk (and food talk).  Me, I've been seriously enjoying and exploring wine for just over 20 years. On the red side, right now I'm partial to wines from Spain and the Rhone valley, but other loves are Oregon pinots, really good Italian wines (yes, it's endless, but that's the fun), and wanting to try mu...

I liked it. Read More

  • Domaine Vacheron Sancerre 2004


    I just opened a bottle of this that I got in Canada, that had been impecacbly cellared here, and I think I just waited too long to oopen it, but after a full hour in the glass, it began to reveal layers of deep violet perfume, a touch of earth, and from the getgo was quite rich and silky from one of my favorite producers of Sancerre rouge. I thi... Read More
