Love the Querciabella Chiantis but this is comparatively nothing special -- appealing inkiness but one-dimensional flavor. — 18 days ago
Still gorgeous 28 years after harvest. Color: deep garnet. Nose: raisin. The taste evolved beautifully, too. It started off surprisingly light in body and reminiscent of plum tart. After some 40 minutes in the glass it grew deeper and richer, with notes of stewed fruit. — a month ago
Try as I might, I couldn't find much to enjoy about this Pouilly Fuissé. To my taste, it was thin, lacking the necessary body and with flavors of under-ripe fruit (apple,.pear and pineapple) with a touch of citrus. Not delicious at all — 5 months ago
Don't expect a ton of complexity here, but Pinot fruit is on full display and there's more body and mouthfeel than in your typical German red. I liked it quite a lot. Purchased at LCBO in Toronto. — 6 months ago
Wow, what a beautiful red fruit bomb. To think this could taste so ripe and present after 18 years is almost mind-boggling. Flavors are beautifully integrated. Most pleasant wine-drinking surprise YTD. — 4 months ago
