Verrry reductive upon opening. Took a good 20 minutes to fully blow off. On the nose, buttered croissants, lemons and petrol. In the mouth, stone fruits, underlying minerality, bright lemon and lime acidity. Mouthwateringly pure acidity in fact. Balanced sweetness. Long finish. Awesome. — a month ago
One of the best values in Whites @14 bucks...On the nose, sea spray, lemons and wet rocks. In the mouth, bright lemon zest, slight beeswax, green Apple and rocks. Spectacularly mineral. Great acidity. Long finish. Might not be summer, but this is a 4 season wine for me. — 2 months ago
Not really characteristic of a Vacqueyras for me. On the nose, dusty cherries and older oak. In the mouth, higher toned red fruit and some tannins. Slightly hollow mid-palate. Medium-Short finish. Price was higher than quality tonight. — a month ago
A little too modern for me... on the nose, oak, some green peppers and baking spices. In the mouth, very smooth dark fruits and vanilla, earth. Decent acidity keeps it from being flabby. Medium finish. Very polished, but I like some more gravel in my Graves. — 2 months ago
On the nose, grilled bread and lemon zest. In the mouth, yeasty citrus and minerals. Medium-long finish. Good QPR. — a month ago
Beautiful Cru Beaujolais! I must admit a soft spot for any well made Cru Beaujolais...but this was a very nice bottle. On the nose, spicy black pepper, roses and lilacs. In the mouth, brambly red fruits and spices, dried flowers and minerals. Bright acidity, medium-long finish. A textbook example of this wine. — a month ago
