Top 10 wines in the US press12th September, 2013 by Andy Young
2012 Patrick Piuze Petit Chablis
In the LA Times, Irene Virbila picked out this as her “wine of the week”, she wrote: “Another terrific Chablis from young négociant and winemaker Patrick Piuze, a French Canadian who stopped to work the harvest in Burgundy 11 years ago and basically never went home again.”
She added: “Lemony yellow and crisp, it is fermented with indigenous yeasts and shows off aromas of citrus, mostly lemon and grapefruit. Stern at first taste, it has a lovely texture and a finish that stays awhile.
“Drink it with a platter of oysters or clams on the half shell, with a lobster roll or a grilled lobster. It’s great with nutty cheeses too.”
