Quadrant of 2017 chardonnay served blind. All opened 5 hours in advance.
2017 Dauvissat Forest was similar to my last note, but lusher and fuller due to the extra air given to it.
2017 Walter Scott Seven Springs - was excited to try their first bottling of this vineyard. Super clean and pure bright yellow fruit. Tons of sparkling mineral jumping lively on the palate. Wine is full of energy and vibrancy. A really interesting contrast to the X-Novo which is a denser wine. This was more like a high wire act.
2017 Walter Scott x-novo - fairly different from the last bottle we had, which only had 30 minutes of air. The extra 4 odd hours really gave it time to expand in concentration and body. Filled out like a weightlifter. Slightly exotic fruit match with that reductive profile on the palate that gives it a complexity on the texture of the wine. The wine is so deep and concentrated with a backbone of acidity to keep it going. Brilliant wine. Hard to find. Chardonnay that hits at this high at this level year in and year out. Bravo @walterscottwines@kpahlow32 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2017 PYCM st aubin Hommage Marguerite- classic reductive smoke on the nose. Sappy orchard fruit and high acid. I do wish it had more on the mid palate as it hollows out a bit. Thanks @harmacist ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My pick of the four is the X-Novo.

Now I know why I can’t find any meaning in life. I lack a cat master... 🐈

This is my first time in Canada! It’s a gorgeous city with very kind people.
The moment I got off the plane, I realized all the signs and advertisements were in English and French. I was very excited to test my French, however everyone I talked to spoke English.
I noticed the soaps in our hotel and even the world brand sodas were in both languages.
Walking through the villages of the French Alps. If you want to fill your lungs with fresh air this place is perfect. Forests, meadows, cows, lakes and small towns with lots of charm is what you'll find in the French Alps, this image is from Saint- Etienne de Crossey.🌄🌳🌲🐄🏔
