Disg Feb 12. Think this has lost some of its red fruit flavour over the past year. Has developed a more Bollinger like tang, which I think detracts a little from this rose version of LGA.
Still drinking very nicely though. — 2 months ago
A cheap quaffer but my goodness, it's packed with flavour. Buttery, butterscotch, melon and a touch of honey.
Very drinkable. — 3 months ago
A rounded, buttery type Chardonnay of the type I prefer. Has some floral notes. Not as good as some Margaret river wines but very drinkable. — 4 months ago
Lychees and white pear flavour, very entertaining drink but my palate prefers a more Pinot driven red fruit finish.
Good but have had better. — 3 months ago
ID 213027. Cellared since March 16. Can hardly call this Rose champagne when it’s more a sunset orange colour!!
Time has taken away some of the fruity freshness that used to be here but replaced it with a more solid, almost spicy backbone.
I’m uncertain if this krug is a candidate for long term cellaring. The grand cuvée will keep for years. This? You pay your money and take a chance. I’m going to drink it young but will keep a couple of bottles just to prove myself wrong. — 3 months ago
An interesting mix of 50% Pinot Meunier and 50% Chardonnay from oak barrels. Lovely fruit flavour from the meunier and wonderful subtle flavour from the oaked Chardonnay.. A smashing bottle of fizz from a cooperative I visited last week. — 4 months ago
In a good place at the moment. Decanted and drank over a couple of days. By the second day had developed some dark black fruit flavour like plum and blueberry. But still wrapped in classic Aussie Shiraz ummph. — 3 months ago
ID 214041 Brioche and citrus fruits on the nose, perhaps even a hint of prune? Very slight green tinged light golden colour. Light citrus flavor but with some of the Meunier fruit showing through. Very drinkable now but I suspect patience will be rewarded handsomely. — 3 months ago
Really fine bead , lovely golden colour. Tons of apple, pear and other stone fruit flavours.
Another spectacular wine from the 2002 vintage. Tasted at Billiecart Salamon during the '17 harvest. — 4 months ago
