Professor B’s Vintages August 3 Release Recommendations.


Pouilly Fume, 2011, Domaine des Fines Caillottes, Loire, France
Dried herbs and citrus aromas dominate the nose. Vigorous, but refined and very well balanced. This is a fine sauvignon blanc from the region, unlike others from other countries.
695908, $ 22.95

Chablis Beauroy Premiere Cru, 2011, Alain, Geoffroy, Chablis, Burgundy, France
Crisp, and mineral-etched with lovely fruitiness of apples. Fresh, bright, clean, typical Chablis that would complement white-fleshes fish, crustaceans of all kinds.
733501, $ 27.95

Tavel Rose, 2012, Chateau de Triquevedel, Cotes du Rhone, France
