My oh my, how this beauty has developed. Rita's fruit...crazy salinity. Like being in the vineyard early in the morning. Maritime madness. Savory beach ambiance on nose. Lemon dug deep. Little lime on palate. Meursault weight, with a lemony curd finish that goes to a slaty, wet stone clean finish. Mark, you're a genius — 2 months ago
Just sitting on the self of my local store. I drink a massive amount of the Delas CdR. This is much more nimble, fresher on nose and mid-palate. Grenache notes uplift leather, red cherries and raspberry. Some lavender. Syrah on the finish. Dark berry, graphite, smoke. But acid wipes clean. Is it super complex? No. Is it super tasty for £7? Hell yes! Going great with pizza. — 2 months ago
