Touriga Nacional Rosé 2019

David T
9.1

Burrata, roasted garlic, garden cherry tomatoes, olive oil, pesto and Tondo balsamic with chopped pistachios for texture.

The nose is showing; candied, lean, strawberries, cherries, blood oranges, tangerines, raspberries, shades of black cherries, sweet rhubarb, brilliant pink rose petals with some red mixed in, vanillin, watermelon Jolly Rancher, slight herbaceousness, beautiful, saline notes, delicate chalk and sandstone minerality.

The palate palate rushes in juicy, lush and then slides in chalky powder with a slightly waxiness character & near tannin presence. You definitely sense this is made from a hearty grape varietal, like Touriga Nacional. It has beautiful viscosity. rushing cool river acidity. Candied, lean, strawberries, cherries, blood oranges, tangerines, raspberries, shades of black cherries, sweet rhubarb, brilliant pink rose petals with some red mixed in, vanillin, watermelon Jolly Rancher, slight, fresh herbaceousness, saline notes, beautiful, delicate chalk, sandstone & gripping limestone/volcanic minerality. The finish is refreshing, nicely balanced and smartly polished.

I was curious about their Rosé and wanted to try it. However, it will benefit with another one to two years in bottle.

Réserve Exclusive Chouilly Rosé

8.9

This was suppose to be a Friday night happy Champagne toast. But like Neapolitan, we drink Champagne in good & bad times.

We raise a glass in celebration of one of the greatest women of our time. Ruth, you were a true champion of Justice for the people. Rest in power. You have earned it. Can’t think of many more deserving. You wanted to hang in there for the people. We are forever sorry destiny had other plans. “2020, The Year of the Apocalypse!”
#RIPRUTH

It has been a long time since I’ve had a Nicolas Feuillatte anything and never had their Rosé until It was at Costco for just over $30. I thought to myself time to give it a try & grabbed one.

The nose reveals; black cherries, strawberries, deep, ripe, watermelon, pomegranate & cranberry juice, hints of tangerine & even less rhubarb, cherry kirsch, good presence of yeastiness, bread dough, baguette crust, oyster shells, sea spray, some white spice, watermelon Jolly Rancher/fruit roll ups, fruit tea, saline, grey volcanics, soft chalky powder, candied, red florals that are brilliant with pink & red roses.

The palate is; round, thick, rich, lush & highly polished. Micro oxygenation. The fruits are very ripe, deep and juicy. Black cherries, strawberries, deep, ripe, watermelon, pomegranate & cranberry juice, hints of tangerine & even less rhubarb, cherry kirsch, good presence of yeastiness, bread dough, baguette crust, oyster shells, sea spray, more white spice on the palate with heat, watermelon Jolly Rancher/fruit roll ups, fruit tea, saline, just a splash of herbaceousness stingy, grey volcanics, soft chalky powder, candied, red florals that are brilliant with pink & red roses. The acidity is round & lively. The long finish is nicely balanced fruit & earth with a long set of spice that persists minutes.

Serviceable at this price point but, it’s not going to replace my BSR & Ruinart N/V Rosé habit.

Cuvée Elisabeth Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne 2007

🏅Rating 92/100 (4,2⭐)

I always struggle with rose champagnes. Somehow they don't convince me and almost never justify the price tag. But there are a few which I am satisfied with.

Cuvee Elisabeth is definitely in my top list. Its first vintage is 1988 and was created as a counterpart to another prestige cuvee of the house Nicolas François.

This cuvee is about the elegance and finesse rather than the power. Made of equal parts of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir it is blended with less than 10% of red wine from old vines in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ.

Chic rose color with copper hue. Reductive style with a cooler 2007 vintage showing through. Apricot jam, candied citrus, sugar powdered red berries. Delicate bitter cool and dry finish. Disg. in Feb 2019 after spending impressive 11 years on lees. The dosage of 6 g/l is enough to reach the perfect balance.

Domaine La Bonneliere

Saumur Tradition Cabernet Franc Rosé 2017

Just concluded the annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.

Nose has washed raspberries, sliced Clementine orange, peach skin and moist chalk.
Palate has dried orange, partially-dried cherry, peach skin and (minor) dried raspberry. Light acidity remains, our final bottle, this was a good run.

Lansdowne Vineyard

Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

Rosé and comfort food - heck yes! Growing up my mum made ‘sausage swirls’ which are pastry, sausage, potato and cheese swirls. And now they’re my go-to comfort food - however I add a jar of jalapeños 🌶 for a bit of a kick 🙌

I thought they’d be a great match to this bottle of Lansdowne 2019 Pinot Rosé which we were sent as a sample from Good Pair Days (thanks guys!).

Only a small quantity of this wine was made (177 cases in fact) due to extreme weather conditions that year.

If you want to give it a whirl, and/or try out the Good Pair Days experience, make sure to add the code “travellingcorkscrew” for a discount at the checkout 😉

I felt like I was watching the sunset 🌅 as the red-y orange like liquid was poured into my glass. On the nose it had me thinking about wild strawberries 🍓, tangerine and pink grapefruit. While in the mouth it’s smooth and hella delicious. Refreshing, comforting and bloody yum.

This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it. By using the above promo code I will receive a small amount of commission.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!

We overwinter in our house in MA. We can't get into the ME cabin in the winter, unless the logging roads we access our property somehow get plowed, too much snow generally.

Delicious. So much so I forgot to snap a pic til it was almost gone. Strawberry, rhubarb, peach and rose petals, crowd pleasing but good presence and complexity — 2 days ago
