Last week, Charlotte Serve from Le Marchande dropped into the studio whilst on a whirlwind sales tour of the states, armed to the teeth with what is lovingly referred to here at UTGT as a “whino’s dozen.”  18 wines from France, encapsulated in about an hour.

I had not met Charlotte before, and usually when I meet someone for the first time, I find myself at a loss for words.  Hey, I’ll be the first to admit I am pretty friggin’ boring in person (hard to believe, right?).  Hell, I am more than a bit surprised my wife hasn’t died from boredom after 13 years of marriage.

Yet I digress.

One thing I did ascertain from my meeting from Charlotte – she knows her stuff – as she walked me through a portfolio of value:

French Aperó Sauvignon Gascogne 2012.  Grade=Good.  The nose was a bit aggressive but in the glass, it drinks of lemon, lime and guava notes with a smooth, fleshy finish.

Le Pree Vinette Sauvignon Touraine 2012.  Grade=Very Good.  Lime and melon mixing it up with chalky mineral and a hint of lemon.

Jean Colin Sancerre AOC 2012.  Grade=Very Good.  Citrus notes and mineral combine in a nice, light-bodied white with well-balanced acidity.

Jean Colin Pouilly-Fumé AOC 2012.  Grade=Outstanding.  Clean, crisp acidity buoys pretty lime, honeydew and quince notes.

Domaine Tabordet Pouilly-Fumé AOC 2012.  Grade=Outstanding.  A touch of brine amidst a marionette of lime and crushed limestone.  Pretty and nuanced.

Didier Desvignes Beaujolais Blanc 2011.  Grade=Very Good.  A nice, soft, round Chardonnay, showing toasted apple, pear and hints of Meyer lemon.

Domaine du Calvaire de Roche Gres Moulin-a-Vent 2011.  Grade=Outstanding.  Medium-bodied, creamy cherry and red currant notes, a touch of spice and hints of cocoa.
