Figured I’d pull one as a delivery arrived and this (appellation Aubert) seems to be a hot topic on here recently. Opened like a sauv blanc almost and took time to show itself but was nice.
I found it enjoyable but I understand the QPR argument. It’s priced close enough to the single vineyard so may not be worth it. — a year ago
Figured I’d check in here. The merlot is noticeable, and I love it. With time this is going to be a big fat plush wine. Right now still tannic, and starting to show itself. Patience for another year or two will pay dividends. — a year ago
Decided to give this one a shot after the exchange yesterday. Started off a bit oakier than I like, but once that blew off this was pleasant enough. I have a couple others I might wait on to see if the oak integrates and gains complexity. — a year ago
