Grande Réserve Rosé 2020

Andrew Holod
9.1

A blend of 30% Mourvedre, 30% Consult and 40% Syrah. Batroun District.
Pale, rosey pink. This offers a deep nose of crushed wet granite and a suggestion of red fruits. On the palate this offers an energetic, mineral tinged, savory character that echos a few Catalan reds with extended skin/lees contact I've tasted. It seems more about place and soil than fruit and is quite interesting.
My wife described it as 'spicy.' Probably not the best bottle to have been pulled for girl's night!
With more air on day three this shows a dried/crushed rose petal and cardamom note.

L'Hallali Grande Réserve Gigondas 2017

Earthy, terroir nose. Opened nicely. Palette- enjoyable , long finish, medium tannins . After one hour, improved, earthiness is a nice change from Napa cabs. — 14 days ago

Grande Escolha Vinho Verde Avesso Blend 2020

Very aromatic nose with yellow fruits (pineapple, peach) along with some white flower notes and citrusy zest (orange peel, tangerine...). This is quite impressive! The palate is very well made with a strong acid backbone, a good width, some nice citrusy and zesty notes all along, a soft mouthfeel and a powerful and long finish with those same citrusy and zesty notes, bringing a tiny bitter vibe to it. We had it along with a dish prepared by yours truly of squid in sauce with vegetables (oignon, red pepper bell, zucchini, carrots and garlic), fish sauce and soy sauce and this was a great pairing. Very good one! — 3 days ago

Agreed, esp if it's TBA

Vallontano Vinhos Nobres

N.V. Brut

Very light, balanced, fresh, elegant. There is no way you can get this quality at this price point for a roughly 50/50 Pinot Chardonnay, brut no vintage sparking. — 23 days ago

Always good, but the 169 is a little tight and austere right now. — 11 days ago
