Frisson d'Automne Côtes de Gascogne White Blend 2016

Delicious sweet white with depth and balance, great honey and apricot nose and satisfying finish. Works well as dessert wine or and also with rich or spicy main courses. Great bargain. 2016. — 6 months ago

Brut Nature Rosé Bonarda 2013

Meg Maker

If Malbec is Argentina’s concertmaster, Bonarda plays second violin. This red grape, originally from the Savoie, is less muscular and powerful, more floral and demure. It’s usually made as a still, pale red wine, but here it’s been turned into a Brut rosé sans dosage to good effect. The fruit was grown in the Uco Valley in low-fertility limestone soils. It was pressed, vinified with native yeast, bottled for a secondary fermentation, then aged on lees for six months. Its tourmaline pink body emits quiet pearly bubbles that burst in a frisson of apple-mint, strawberry blossom, and barely pink berries. It feels fresh and pure, and counters with a slightly bitter finish that adds depth. Not serious, but delicious. 10.5% abv (sample)

Thanks for reading. Bonarda as a still wine is juicy and light-hearted.

Very fruity. Lots of plum flavor. The tanning is not overly power. The length is abundant but not crazily long. — 7 months ago

Derthona Colli Tortonesi Timorasso 2013

Courtney Cochran

And then God created the perfect wine. Its soul was part St. Aubin, part Albariño. Its body was svelte, with liquid curves and a frisson of feral charm. Pear and apple, hay and jicama. Rainwater and mineral, some juicy white peach and orange essence. A cool cheesy note. Style. One of those uncanny wines that works with lighter or heartier fare, charming all along the way. Let's just drink this one, shall we? 🔝 — 4 years ago
