2017 Cantine Miali “Lvnalba” Chardonnay Frizzante

So I’m taking this sparkling Chard from Puglia on a little picnic because whoever thought to make a sparkling Chardonnay… in Puglia??? Pretty cool stuff. Lemon, bread, stone, and peach skin on the nose. Almost cider-ish apple on the palate with lemon, ginger, and lemongrass notes. Pretty cool! Stay safe, everybody!

2017 Cave de Lugny Mâcon-Villages

Rockin’ out with this value white Burgundy. Lemon, ripe apple flesh, and even lemon curd on the nose. Super mineral on the palate with more lemon curd, green herbs, and fresh, fresh acidity. Anjou pear notes on the finish.

2017 Bouchard Aîné & Fils Pouilly-Fuissé

This is my white Burgundy face. Meyer lemon, apple, honey, yellow flowers, and cashew notes on the nose. A little simpler on the palate with predominantly lemon, apple, and a hint of honeyed notes. Cheers!

Happy Thanksgiving, friends! Beautiful pinkish color on this Burgundy sparkler. Meyer lemon, pastries, butter cookies, croissant, brioche crust, and orange blossom on the nose. Lemons, oranges, apricots, and honey on the palate with a limey finish. Nice acidity and minerality. Thankful.
