Yeah, Matt, you and Manton turned me on to appreciate more austere, mineral wines. Gomey had a part with his great love of Didier and getting me to try a couple different bottlings from him. I'm not always in the mood for, nor do I think food always needs it, your almost ascetic wines but I do now prefer some minerality and backbone. When I first was exploring wines I thought I just did not like Chard due to everything people are saying here about most CA Chards. It took exposure to old world wines for me to start to drink (selected) CA Chards.
