Citrus is a common term and genus (Citrus) of flowering plants in the rue family, Rutaceae. The most recent research indicates an origin in Australia, New Caledonia and New Guinea. Some researchers believe that the origin is in the part of Southeast Asia bordered by Northeast India, Burma (Myanmar) and the Yunnan province of China, and it is in this region that some commercial species such as oranges, mandarins, and lemons originally came.

    • White Stones and White Bones: terroir-based Chardonnays from Catena

      It was very interesting to try these two high-end terroir-based Chardonnays from Catena, and then the next day to have a look at the soils that produced them. They both come from the same block in the Adrianna Vineyard, high up in the Uco Valley at 1450 m altitude. But even within the same block, there’s quite a variation in soils. Soil pit 1, above, shows one of the soil types.

  • On the cheap, part II: Muscadet

    … On the cheap, part II: Muscadet Drouet Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine "La Sancive" 2013 Not bad for an Alko wine under 10€. Neutral in a nice way, the pear-drop cool ferment aroma I found in a previous bottle almost a year ago has faded and now it smells like wine. Instead there's a slight lees aroma and some nice citrus. Crisp and citric and even salty. This isn't Pépière but considering that it's Alko that I have to deal with, this is among the best buys here: it does what it says on the tin.…
