Solid show, nothing crazy.
To be honest Sauvignon Blanc gets so much exposure these days that it’s hard to get too pumped about it.

    QOTD. I’m, without a doubt, into Loire Chenins for these season. I found some great aged 2002’s and I’ll be going through those with pleasure!

    GV – I am really late in watching this show. Between Easter and a business trip, I have not had the time. Good show. I really like Kiwi SBs. Have been underwhelmed by the Cloudy Bay myself.

    QOTD – Albarinos, Pinot Gris, and Sauv Blanc – my spring and summer wines.

    Nice tight show, GV. I generally agree with you that Cloudy Bay is fairly consistently well-made, but it doesn’t usually excite me, especially for the restaurant wine list price.

    QOTD: I just had WL order me a case of 2007 Chateau Le Nerthe CDP Blanc because my wife and I had it in Vegas and it was outstanding. As for other summertime preferences, a nice Tavel (Rhone rosé) is always enjoyable.

    qotd: I plan constantly switching it up and avoiding an endless barrage of Napa cab’s and chard’s and all the other boring, overpriced, name dropping stuff out there. Not that I don’t love a Napa chard or cab every now and then.
