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. — 2 days ago

Nice Provence Rose from Le Domaine de Triennes & the team of, Aubert de Villaine of Domaine de la Romanée Conti & Jacques Seysses of Dujac.
Classic, well crafted, great on a warm day & palate shifter from white to red. Excellent QPR @ $15...not giving up my Domaine Tempier habit but, will get worked into the mix.
I won’t open another bottle for one to two more years. Needs some bottle evolution to soften its sweetness and integrate in IMHO. — 3 months ago
Purchased at the Texas winery in March 2018, returned it to its native homeland to sit in our Brooklyn basement for 2 years. Crystals galore on the cork. Gave it about 45 mins of air. Consumed with Le Fond lamb takeout on Easter at the end of week 4 of quarantine. Stewed spring strawberry inside an unfrosted freshly toasted pop tart. lil bit of sautéed portabello mushroom. Put it in your mouth and it’s tart unsweetened cranberry juice with some vibrant bretty thing that jumps around on the tongue. Continues to rich floral bergamot and vetiver and hyacinth. Finishes back to ocean spray cranberry cocktail. Lots of sediment. — 5 months ago
46% Cabernet franc, 27% merlot, 14%petit Verdot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon. This, despite the high content of cab franc, is quite light. Acidity is up front with the first flavors of plums, oranges, and cherries. Slight notes of oak follow and a bright finish. Easy to drink. — 7 months ago
