My latest French Wine Discovery
|Raphael Knapp and Steve Andrews at Terroir Wine Bar|
One thrill was discovering a rustic, incredible wine bar and store in San Francisco's SoMa, called Terroir Wine Bar, and also interviewing a young adventurous Sancerre Winemaker, Sebastien Riffault. More on his wines soon.
But, at the end, he poured to us one of the most interesting white wines I have had lately - the Brin, Pierres Blanches, 2010. Full of crisp vitality and a terrific backbone, yet balanced with such graceful finesse, showing floral, and hazelnut elements and a gorgeous balance of honey.
