Wine Reviews: Mini Round-Up for March 4, 2024


The post Wine Reviews: Mini Round-Up for March 4, 2024 appeared first on 1 Wine Dude.

I taste a bunch-o-wine (technical term for more than most people). So each week, I share some of my wine reviews (mostly from samples) and tasting notes in a “mini-review” format.

They are meant to be quirky, fun, and (mostly) easily-digestible reviews of (mostly) currently available wines (click here for the skinny on how to read them), so you can get right to the point and decide if they’re for you (or not). Cheers!

  • NV Albert Bichot Cremant de Bourgogne Brut Reserve (Burgundy): Earth-y, biscuit-y, and pleasingly apple fruit-y. $27 B+
  • 2017 Chateau Simone Palette Blanc (Provence): Bruised yellow apples, honey, and golden richness to challenge the intellect. $70 A-
  • 2021 Domaine Labet ‘Fleur de Savagnin’ en Chalasse (Cotes du Jura): A masterclass in racy, linear, focused acidic backbone. $190 A
  • 2019 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Selection Saint-Joseph Offerus (Rhone): A dark, meaty, spicy, and structured beauty. $45 A-
  • 2022 Carpineto Dogajolo Bianco (Toscana): Simply refreshing, and refreshingly simple. $15 B
  • 2013 CVNE Vina Real Crianza (Rioja): Delicious. Rich, spicy, evocative, and classically modern Rioja red. $20 B+
  • 2015 Foppiano Vineyards Petite Sirah (Russian River Valley): Bacon, sour cherry, wood spices… this one’s still in great, tangy shape! $30 B+
  • 2016 Villa San-Juliette ‘Chorum’ Reserve Red (Paso Robles): A reasonably affable agreement reached between big, leathery palate, quite ripe black fruit, and dried wild herbs. $17 B
  • 2022 Troon Vineyard Druid’s Fluid White (Applegate Valley): Figgy and savory tribute to a now-proven, unique spot in OR. $25 B+
  • 2021 Domaine Bousquet ‘Virgen’ Natural Malbec (Tupungato): Mineral and red fruit driven, and a fine match for anything off the grill on a warm day. $13 B
