Couple of fun weeknight wines- Saar feinherb and Morgon

by Dale Williams » Thu Feb 14, 2019 11:52 pm

With roast chicken, wild rice, kale, and salad
2016 Foillard “Eponym” Morgon (On CT and my sales receipt this is listed as “Les Charmes Eponym” but I only see Eponym on label)
First time with this bottling for me. Crunchy tart red fruits, light and lively, really delicious and appealing. B+


With mushroom dumplings and shanghai bok choy in dashi broth, broiled flounder, and salad
2015 Falkenstein “Niedermenniger Sonnenberg” Riesling Spatlese Feinherb (AP#7). Really taut acids, limeade and donut peach, spicy/gingery finish. B+


Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine, B a good wine, C drinkable. Anything below C means I wouldn't drink at a party where it was only choice.Furthermore, I offer no promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.

Never heard of that Foillard cuvée.

Neither have I. Interesting....

It's a new cuvee/vineyard for Foillard.

Kermit describes it as stylistically inbetween the CdP and the Corcelette: https://shop.kermitlynch.com/product/detail/16FJF06.html
