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.

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!

2016 Domaine Weinbach Cuvée Sainte Catherine Riesling Schlossberg
Going big and by big, I mean MAGNUM, this Wine Wednesday on Alsatian Riesling. I mean, let’s be honest – a little Riesling out of a magnum is always fun. Lemon spritz, honeysuckle, slate minerality on the nose and palate. Tingling acidity with a long finish. Lovely!

Staying home on this snowy day with this lovely sparkler. Lemon poundcake and marzipan notes on the nose. Similar on the palate with a moist lemon cake finish. Nice mousse and acidity on this guy. Quite lovely!
