#THIRSTYTHURSDAY • At @theshoreclubca #Toronto Sommelier @allisonvidug is excited to be able to offer Savary's Fourchaume Premier Cru Chablis by the glass! This is a rare opportunity to taste one of the finest Premier Cru vineyards. Fourchaume is often compared to the quality of Grand Cru Chablis. The vineyard shares the same southerly aspect as the Grand Cru sites. The soils are composed of the limestone rich Kimmeridgian clay, which gives Chablis its signature minerality. The Chardonnay vines used for this particular wine are 30 years old. They have a deep root system which gives loads of complexity to the wine. The wine is elegant, round the natural cool climate acidity. Savary's Chablis is perfectly suited to rich seafood entrees, such as The Sauteed Prawns & Scallops in a Pernod Herb Cream Sauce.
Bring on the storms! 🌧 Forecast calls for continued cold weather and wet storms next week. With warm temperatures of February we saw our first bud break a month earlier than last season. These cold storms call for frost prevention. If you see sprinklers going off in the vineyards or big fans, these are the two biggest frost prevention methods! #winter#frost#earlybudbreak

Lazio Igt Grechetto '12 Brecceto - alcool 14% #cantina Trappolini #winery#lazio#winelovers
Cru ottenuto da uva #grechetto con saldo #chardonnay affinato in barrique, si presenta alla vista di color giallo paglierino con riflessi dorati.
Naso fine e complesso, giocato su frutta secca, frutto di passione, gherigli di noce, canditi.
In bocca l'avvolgenza alcolica, le sensazioni vanigliate, il frutto esotico e una forte spinta agrumata già avvertita all'olfazione, confezionano un quadro dotato di finezza e carattere.
