Osé Blanc Sec, Château Richard, 2011

this is the most wild, energetic, potent white wine I’ve ever had. during the first fall chill, i brought it home and had a sip. i had to sit down. i just stared at the glass, letting the taste come alive. something like this that owns its character and doesn’t back down is absolutely NOT friendly, it is aggressive and raucous and RARE. over the past several days i’ve had a glass after work, and with time the wine has become a deep amber, deliciously tart and acidic. surprisingly delicate although not for the faint of tongue, it’s like drinking fresh pressed cider from peaches. there’s tons of sediment and no galore.

This wine comes from a very small biodynamic vineyard in Southwest France. You can visit them here: http://www.chateaurichard.com/codes/premiere-page.html
