This week we reviewed two white wines…I wanted to like the first which I brought but ended up loving the Riesling Mary brought! 1)2015 Chateau Loustalet. Buzet $15. This was a blend of Semillion, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. A bit flowery for my taste and not much acid…Mary liked it more than I did. Buzet […]
