The Winesleuth and Wine90 checking out the chards…
The Winesleuth (me, Denise) has joined forces with the always entertaining UK wineblogger, Wine90 (Sarah Newton), for occasional forays into the world of video blogging or vlogs as they’re commonly known.
So I called up Sarah and invited her over with a wine of her choice, something to compare and contrast with my white Burgundy. Sarah usually blogs about Italian wines but for our maiden voyage into vlogs, she chose something to go along with the chardonnay theme, an ’05 Californian chard, the ’05 Cambria Katherine’s Vineyard Chardonnnay from Santa Maria Valley (£18), which she picked up from one of my favourite wineshops, Wines of the World in Earlsfield.
Oddbins has been slowly releasing a trickle of wines to the shops and this little gem arrived the other day. An ’05 white Burgundy from Domaine Martin, the Senaillet, a Macon-Villages, 1oo% chard, a fantabulous mouthful that has found it’s way onto our shores and currently at the reduced price of £6.99
Now this should be an interesting comparison…it’s a tad long but we were delighted and amused….(I can’t believe she’s never heard of creamsicles!)
