Licorice, blackberry, strawberry jam, caramel candy... This is very rich. The palate is wonderful with a very strong acid drive, a great width with a nice thickness on the sides which can be broken down in matter and a radiant black fruit. Some tannins that stick up on the sides in the rear and a slight drying effect and a very long finish with again a typical licorice touch, blackberries and a nice tangyness which makes you crave for another glass. Wow this is great and it puts a lot of fancy Châteauneuf du pape to shame! — 10 days ago
LOVE. Loire might be my favourite French region.
Some green pepper on the nose. Dangerously drinkable. Food friendly. Went well with spiced ground beef and rice, but this red would be a good companion for red or white meat, Indian dishes, or on its own. — 10 days ago
Classic amarone. Dark cherry. Tobacco and a hint of spice on the nose. It is well halved and drinking well an hour after opening. Thanks effect wine for the fall season - to keep my warm whilst grilling! — 2 days ago
A nice middle ground between oak and steel finish. Not overly fruity but the Chardonnay fruit is there. Smooth finish with a little butter. Great with food. — 10 days ago
Less flavor and more texture. Subtle, weird, and wild.
The easy and obvious comparison is pop rocks with an intense effervescent effect. But if you hold this and swirl around, you’ll get a puffy baking soda sensation on the edge of your inside checks, contrasting the acid ringing in the center of your tongue.
This is the pop album with catchy beats that open up to deep, intense, and thought provoking lyrics the more you listen. You want to say ‘meh’ but then you can’t. It’s the record you put on when you have a party, but the conversation is dull and a distraction is required without breaking the mood. — 13 days ago
Licorice, tar, blackberries, cherry and a bit of almond on the nose. This is great! The palate is very lovely with some strong acid backbone, a nice tangy cherry all along, a good width with a lovely matter on the sides. It's not thick, it's rather light but very playful and fruity. Some tannins kick in in mid palate which give a bit of a drying effect in a mid palate sphere. It's quite round in there! The finish is all fruits, a bit of bitterness and thee tannins drying up a notch. Very lovely and joyful wine. — 9 days ago
Proteiny...like when you smell wet mushy fertile live earthwormy soil with cherries budding in the fleshy forest. A bit of farmy cheese funk. The palate showcases earthiness and young fruit, even red apple skins. Supple tannins and a finish that floats over that wet young ground. Pair with tapas leaning toward hard cheeses. Think manchego with hard salami. — 17 days ago
I’m into this! Nice middle ground Chardonnay. Round but good acidity too. Under 20. — 25 days ago
