Absolutely stunning Chenin. Aromatic, slightly oxidative nose, with notes of dried apricot, almond skin, Macintosh apple peel, Basque cider, preserved lemon, white truffle, and castelvetrano olive. Bracing, saline acidity on the palate with a slightly oily texture and a nutty finish. Just a pure delight!!! — a month ago
Love this wine. Subtle and elegant nose. Mid season cherries covered in lace. So sexy. A bit quiet aromatically which is a good thing in 18 as that tells me this is not some ripe bomb. Tree bark. Just lovely. Palate is pure, Lacey and elegant. Super juicy but does show a bit of heat on the palate and yes it’s 14%. But I have faith in the P’tit Max! Lovely sweet fruit and dazzling purity. One of the better 18’s all things considered. Will track this. — 4 months ago
Of course I bought this bottle because I am a chateauneuf du pape slave. But Cockork! I like the label, I like the cork, I like the varietals. I’m a Cali girl with a heart for rhone wine.
Let’s start with the good: the nose. Omg. Seriously dirty, earthy and a hint of cinnamon and spice. Screams rhone. The first palatial flavors suggest soft baking spices and strawberry. The finish has pleasant acid.
Now the bad/ugly: that’s where it stops. The palate goes flat. Void of body, complexity and everything else châteauneuf du pape!
Is it an ok wine? Yes. Would it be appropriate at $18 or less? Yes. But not at $25 plus that I paid. Sorry, just slightly overpriced for underdelivery, but I’m still going to drink it because it is a decently made wine. — 5 months ago
Refreshing acidity. Grassy. Bright. A bit of minerality? — a month ago
