La Bulle Sarthoise Méthode Traditionelle Demi-Sec Pineau d'Aunis Rosé 2009

This is not the rosé! Hopefully that gets corrected shortly. How much love I have for red bubbles. My goth heart jetés. This is all dried herb drawer and dried jam jar. Like seriously the scent of an empty black currant jam jar. There is a hint of sour dairy beguiling me behind. Labeled as demi sec but feels quite dry to me. The tannins have a friendly grip like the soft side of a Velcro enclosure. — 2 years ago

Your last sentence was a brilliant simile to describe the tannins.

So cool! Met the father and son duo this summer at a small wine fair Jasnières. Glad I have a few bottles to wait on!

That bottle must have gotten a new label... Back then they called it domaine Charriere and a different design too... Old stock from the winery??

White pepper on the nose with meaty funk. Strawberry and white pepper on the palate. Smooth and light with no lingering flavors. Delicious and cheap as chips! $9 — 2 years ago
