Holiday Tastings

2005 Falesco Vitiano IGT (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese), Umbria, Italy, 4 Stars1/4, $11.49 per bottle (good value)- medium bodied, dark fruit and chocolate notes with hints of mint and a bit of spice on the back of the tongue, the tannins add a bit of bite to the medium to high acidity wine.

Olivier Laflaive 2006 Bourgogne Blanc Les Setilles, Burgundy, France, 4 Stars1/4, $17.99 per bottle- subtle aromas of apple and oak with hints of stone fruit added on the palate, moderate acidity, and just a touch of buttery texture in this very balanced, not overly oaked wine, great compliment for a nice meal.

2005 Gentil Hugel (Silvaner, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Muscat, Gewürztraminer), Alsace, France, 4 Stars1/4, $13.99 per bottle- grapefruit, mineral, and peach notes with hints of perfume on the nose and a tart citrus and floral palate, this wine is high in acidity, yet still light and well-balanced.

By the way, have y’all seen what’s going on in the EU? Crazy.
