Default TN: Bubbly Chenin, Dry Riesling

After giving a friend instructions on garden watering while we were away, we invited her for a glass on the front porch while we waited for a toilet delivery (?!?!). Recent reports of premOx in 2002 Huets have me nervous, so I popped the 2002 Huet Vouvray Petillant Brut. I was a little worried as there was scarcely a burp as I opened (not premox but flat?) but no, normal amount of bubbles, and actually a charming wine. Apple fruit with cinnamon and spice, a definite citrus zest note, just a hint of yeast roll. Good, chalky, full, and fun. B+

Tonight was Betsy's last chance to cook for David before he heads to Berkeley, so she went for his soft spot-Asian noodles. Soba with scallops, clams, shrimp and Chinese broccoli, with the 2002 Robert Weil Kiedrich Grafenberg Erstes Gewachs Riesling. Stony, white pit fruits, dry, large framed but with enough cut to keep fresh. Full, fresh, and feisty. A-

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine, B a good wine, C drinkable. 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.
