"Sau 5 Solera" by Jérôme Saurigny in Anjou. Absolutely awesome ! Difficult to find informations about it as the quantities produced are ridiculous but it seems like it's a blend of Sauvignon Blanc wines, some botrytised and some dry, with a Solera system started in 2005 ! Sweet, oxidative, powerful, very very long, with a high acidity, dry figs, orange skin and raisins notes. Fabulous !

"Confiturine" by Didier Chaffardon. Insane beverage ! "Moût de raisins très partiellement fermenté" / "grape must very slightly fermented", 1% of alcohol (!), made from Chenin Blanc in the Loire Valley, with a high high level of residual sugar ("confiture" means jam in french) ! Remember me about "Les Sens du Chenin" that Patrick Baudouin produced one or two times.

Amber brown color with a beautiful nose of apricot jam, strawberry jam, acacia honey, dried figs, saffron... Over-rich texture, like a liquid jam, super sweet with a spicy / peppery feeling and most incredible a lively and intense acidity ! Super long finish. Few sips are enough as it's very sweet but what a sensation !

Also very "affordable" compared to Tokaji Eszencia which is actually quite similar in taste and texture, except a bit lower alcohol level. And it's natural. Just wow !

"Les Noëls de Montbenault" 2011, Richard Leroy. Such an excitement, such a disappointment... It was showing awfully with a strong reduction, only expressing grilled sesame and matches notes. I kept a bit of it in the bottle and tried it again yesterday and today but same. Maybe the flight didn't help ? Did anyone had a similar experience with 2011 ? Very sad as the occasions to drink Richard Leroy wines are so rare.. Shit happens !

⬆Great time at COMME MOA with good food, good friends and good wines, especially the always marvelous "Bianco Zibibbo" 2014, Serragghia by @gabrio_bini !

Incredibly aromatic nose on lemon verveina, mango, musk, lavander (!) / Quite powerful palate compared to 2013 with a perfect combination of texture, thin tannins, bitterness and acidity. Just amazing ! Definitely one of my favorite wine (and THE favorite one of @iam_lena) !

Thank you @bob.eat for the great bottle and merci @avecmoa for the delicious meal that brought back memories from France ! We will come back !

Damn ! La Cave des Nomades has just the most amazing bottles I ever seen ! They are perfect, labels, wax, shapes, poetry and message.. ! Of course labels and packaging have absolutely nothing to do with the taste of a wine but when you get such a beautiful object in your hand it already give you the most positive vibes ! Add to this the natural winemaking, the romantic story behind the winery, and the ultra-limited production (between 400 and 1000 bottles of each wine) and you get all the ingredients to make a cult wine ! Lucky to get some in Korea ! Will tell you about the taste of the 2016 soon ;)

"Ageno" 2011 by Elena Pantaleoni, La Stoppa, in Emilia-Romagna. "Ageno" was my first experience of a skin-contact wine, almost 10 years ago and it still amazed me now ! Fantastic and powerful nose, exactly what I love from a beautiful orange wine, on musk, apricot and orange marmelade, origano... Delicate body (for an orange wine) with a round texture and a nice bitterness. I could have enjoyed a bit more acidity but it's not as heavy as some other Italian skin-contact wines so it remains very digest. I loved it !

맛있어요 ! Triptych from Gilles & Antonin Azzoni, Le Raisin et l'Ange, in Ardèche

It seems that summer is the best season to enjoy them, it's amazing how they are so refreshing and easy-going. I was disturbed by the high level of volatile acidity of the 2015 few months ago but they are very pleasant to drink now ! Just the right balance between a juicy and savory fruit, rustic flavors and lively acidity. C'est bon !

와인 페어링 Dinner wine-pairing tonight at Zero Complex ! Dry, sweet, red, white, orange, rosé... A bit of everything, from everywhere ! 6 glasses (6 x 70ml) ➡ 80,000₩

Côtes du Jura "Savagnin Ouillé" (non-oxidative) 2015, Didier Grappe + Scallops / Trout eggs / Coriander "Élément-Terre" 2010, Julien Courtois (Loire) + Smoked beef tartare

Alsace Gewurztraminer "Kritt" 2015, Domaine Marc Kreydenweiss + Candied mackerel / Honey vinegar / Rose "Rosato" 2015, Le Coste (Lazio) + Cuttlefish / Red paprika / Black olives "Blanc" 2014, Domaine Léon Barral (Languedoc) + Cod / Beurre blanc / Asparagus "TN" 2015, Partida Creus (Catalunya) + Iberico Pluma / Anchovies

Petfect dinner at Restaurant D_51 last Sunday, with @iam_lena and @aidenjineom. Delicious and heartwarming food by @chefdongs, the coolest chef in Seoul ! With two fabulous wines from Partida Creus "BN" (Blanco Natural) & "BB" (Bobal) : the texture/color of BN and the Poulsard-like color/aerial character of BB were stunning ! Thank you so much Aiden for bringing those special wines !

Two very different expression of Sauvignon Blanc by Sébastien Riffault ! "Les Quarterons" 2013 on an aerial and exotic nose with a very sharp and straight palate / "Akmeniné" 2012 on powerful orange peel and ginger notes, with intense palate, dark color and slightly oxidative style. A more brutal and radical style and that's also the reason why I love Sébastien Riffault's wines so much !
