Default TN: 3 good whites

Sunday was a gorgeous day, we invited Betsy’s sister and kids over for croquet, Cal joined us after a concert for a dinner of fish tacos. With:

2010 Karine Lauverjat Sancerre
Good weight, quite crisp, clean white fruit with hints of catpee and grass, but well balanced. Very nice Sancerre, in the crisp/fresh style (as opposed to the more “serious” style of the Cotat I enjoyed a few days before).. Glad to have some more of these for summer drinking ($15 makes a good value). B+

2007 Donnhoff Oberhauser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett
Peach and green apple, moderate sweetness, maybe more Spatlese styled but quite tasty. B+/B

I was in charge of meatless Monday, did a large pizza (tomato/,mushroom/cheese, feta/onion/olive, and gorgonzola/tomato sections), salad, and the 2008 Trimbach Riesling. Lemony, dry, midbodied, a bit foursquare but pleasant. B/B-

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
