05 Nicolas Joly, Savennieres Les Clos Sacres

As common and noticed is the tide, I've drank this wine. It's been constant in my glass--a wine I've never bought retail, mind you, but something like my fat, love-starved cat that just keeps showing up under my arm. I would pet you if I could. So why never write about it, and why write about it now, when I don't even have a glass in front of me... More to come.

...a great coincidence, looks like Eric Asimov at the New York Times was thinking the same thing. Uncanny: "Several times I’ve opened one of his bottles and thought it was corked, only to find after a little while that it decidedly was not." Almost everyone I know would affirm I've said that every time I've opened a bottle of Savennieres. While I collect all my notes on this Joly, please check out Eric's post on The Pour here.

I wonder if you caught Eric Asimov's recent post on Nicolas Joly Savennieres--and I'm also wondering where do you buy these? Find these?

Desiree, I hadn't, but I do regularly read Asimov's New York Times blog, and I just looked it up. What a great piece. "I don't drink nearly enough chenin blanc"--a sentiment I think shared by many who love old school wine.

In terms of buying Joly, look on wine-searcher.com. It's a great resource for finding wines at the best price and in your area.
