13' Sanguis Beekeeper. A blending of Chardonnay, Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier.
Nose - Abundance of flowers & perfume.
Can peaches, roasted pine nuts, white pepper, white peaches, mango. Lingering aftertaste of spices & creamy /silky textures 🤔. Rich & complexed. I dig it!
Not much like this on the market. This is a wine I would "not"pop for a crowd of people. — 6 years ago

Not an easy wine to find, check out K&L
blend of Grenache Blanc, Clairette, and Roussanne, this wine is distinctly floral and lush, exemplifying the quality that the famed Brechet family of Châteauneuf-du-Pape’s Château Vaudieu brings to every wine in their lineup. The Brechet family has an estate in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and just across the river from it they own a few small parcels in Lirac. This lovely little wine is at once floral, delicate, and rich, with a surprisingly weighty palate and a round quality on the tongue that enhances its depth. You might think a white from 2015 is a bit on the old side, but this little gem is just hitting its stride. With its couple of added years of age it has mellowed out, creating an almost honeyed quality in the glass that intensifies the complexity and lengthens the finish. It’s simply begging to be paired with a lightly spiced Asian cuisine such as a milder Thai dish or a traditional pork Bahn Mi. — 3 years ago

New producer to me. Pretty strong reviews and I can see why. This is not your jammy fruit bomb zin that are super common. Finesse in style but retaining richness in flavor. Reminiscent of Carlisle style zins with higher acidity, lower ABV and encompassing the entire fruit spectrum. Ripe raspberries, blueberries and blackberries accompanied by Mexican vanilla and sandalwood aromatics. Energetic on the palate. Delicious. Thanks for opening, @Jack Thompson . — 5 years ago
Nice Merlot with a lot of depth in the flavour. The wife bought it for me as part of wedding anniversary present. Had the bottle 13-08-17 — 6 years ago
