Wine lover, taster, researcher.
A very enjoyable although not quite profound bottle. Rich brioche with citrus and pear notes. A crisp finish framed by nice acidity. Perhaps this should rest a few more years, or maybe it’s just the vintage as I’ve not had an 06 yet that was really bringing it. — 17 hours ago
The first one i’ve had that is finally starting to open up. Dark as night in the glass and full of rich black fruit. Mild acidity and still medium but softening tannins make this a good wine for food. This threw a ton of sediment, had a full half glass of dregs leftover. — 2 months ago
Starting to soften just slightly and drinks well now with a short decant. Bright red fruits from the grenache, some darker and more savory elements from the mourvedre and just a touch of syrah which I can’t pick out on the palate but makes for a nice bouquet. — 15 days ago
Everything about this says rose and Pax said its ok to call it one. From a technical standpoint its a Trousseau Gris which has undergone carbonic maceration. This grape traditionally makes white wine, but this produced a pink wine which packs a ton more red fruit character than your typical rose. Super interesting wine, but not for those who are caught off guard and expecting a typical rose. — 25 days ago
Has started to round out just a touch with now 6+ months post disgorgement. Still some sharp edges that will integrate with more time and i’m hoping it puts on a little weight and lets the pinot fruit show through a bit more. At this point it shows best after several hours open. — 2 months ago
