Delicious, nice nose, good fruit yet balanced dry and good finish. Lovely — 3 days ago
Wow. What a nose. Confectionery city. Elite confectionery. Like God’s carnival but on a lazy spring day. So gorgeous. Citrus, candied lime, apricot, slate. So complex. Just stunning stuff. Palate is so elegant and juicy with just tremendous complexity and amazing fruit presence. Elegant and round. Man do Martin’s 20’s remind me of his 16’s. Icing on the cake texture and so sappy. Amazing purity and depth. Concentrated and ripe with great structure and grip. Super pure and deep. Genius. My score might go higher with air.
9.6 to 9.7 with two hours of air. So complete and so complex. The depth here is something special as is the accuracy and vividness of the fruit on the finish.
@Delectable Wine this is the alte reben. Thanks! — a month ago
Earthy, herbaceous aromas of Brown, river mud and clay, cattails, plantain, fungus and peach, with matchsticks and ripe grapefruit. Medium-creamy texture sharpens into bright lemon citrus and Granny Smith morphing into crabapples. Green table grapes, sage, peppercorn, grapefruit and orchid textures shoot to clean river and trout bones. Racy, with twists and turns, a real ride down the rapids #chardonnay #chard #espino #chile #williamfèvre #mountainwine #maipoandes #maipo #SanJuandePirque #pirque — 4 years ago
Opened 4 years after the first bottle. The change is unbelievable and it rememberd me why I bought it. Drunked on a lazy sunday afternoon with no food pairing. — a year ago
Drinking local in the Grand Valley AVA (Palisade CO). Such a fun place to visit....wineries on bike, exceptionally lazy today so electric assisted (like a golf cart on two wheels). Colorado has a lot of mediocre wine but Petite Verdot has been an exception. Dark fruit, oaked, old world feel. Surprising. — 4 years ago
First enjoyed with Dave Roesler at Luna in 2017 or 18. It was $70. Found it for $20 this winter of 2022 at Lazy Acres and shared with the Hidegs. Also amazing — 17 days ago
Drinking beautifully with a Northern appellation feel to it, more Brune and schistous to me. Would love to know all the lieu dits that contribute and their proportion in the final blend. Its darken fruit profile, meaty/smokey and forest notes make the argument that it’s of northern origin. Its opening up for now there’s a rich stream of dark black fruits reminiscent of Black raspberry liquor, soaked plums, almost prune, and overripe black berry/cherry. There’s still freshness to the fruit however, nothing ox’d or decaying. Singed cedar, leather, ash, roasted meat and animal come next, followed by the garrigue and bacon fat. Threads of eastern spices and of course pepper. It elusive now, the aromas coming and going. Palate has some lovely richness and bones to accompany it well, never pushy, always with restraint and nerve. Reminds me of Barolo. Great “basic” cuvée for Rostaing this vintage. Day 2 this really got going, much more harmony and focus on the nose. Loads of bitter root and pastille notes developing among its dark content. Very delicious — 2 years ago
Wonderful Etna Rosso. Plenty of red fruit, high minerality, very fine bones and tannins. Improves wonderfully in the glass. A great nerrelo mascalese (90 pct) — 4 years ago
