Melon de Bourgogne on Snooth

  • Growing up fishing from boats off the coast of Santa ... SB/semillon or riesling or melon de bourgogne or others. Lightly dust a crust with even the addition of some crushed almonds or walnuts or pine nuts or others, and the range of interesting wines increases. If doing a court-bouillon poach I'd consider blanc de blancs champers and other whi... Read More

  • Going back to the Lingcod story I hinted at in the other thread, here's how that went...I just remember trying Lingcod years ago at some place like King's fish house, and then never seeing it again. I'd even read fish reports in the newspaper and hardly see any caught except sometimes a few in Oxnard, etc. Seems like they are mostly caught off o... Read More

  • Le Fils des Gras Moutons Muscadet Sevre et Maine 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Excellent Muscadet, the back label says these grapes come from 18 acres of vines that average over 50 yrs of age in Gras Moutons. Light yellow in color, there's a bit of aroma of lemon pith which may show better if we drank it a bit less cool. Nice lemon cream, a touch of white grapefuit, a hint of white pepper, lively acidity and a medium finish. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Binny's 4/2015. You get to smell the Loire Valley soil in every bottle of Muscadet, or so it seems. Was just lovely with a chicken stir fry meal. Read More

  • An extemely enjoyable 2010 Eyrie Vineyard (Oregon) Melon de Bourgogne. This grape is widely grown in France, mainly in the Loire Valley where it is also known as Muscadet. In the glass it's an interesting light to medium gold expanding to a clear rim. On the nose is some ripe pear, a hint of lemon pith and a touch of apricot. Some fairly mouth w... Read More
