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.

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. — 20 days ago

Grande Cuvee 169ÈME Édition Brut Champagne Blend

Always good, but the 169 is a little tight and austere right now. — 8 days ago

Domaine Pascal Cotat

La Grande Côte Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Delicate, precise and mineral on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied - quite viscous - and mostly citrus and stone fruit, faint grassy notes. A bit shy, though. Seems to hold back. Maybe closed at the time..?

More weight and more generosity on the day after. So, up a notch.
