Crémant de Loire Brut Rosé

It is Saturday night and I have opened the Maurice Bonnamy Crémant de Loire Rosé Brut. A blend of 100% Cabernet Franc grapes from south of Saumur.

On the nose there I find strawberry, raspberry, tart cherry, minerality and some yeasty qualities.

On the palate there are notes of strawberry, raspberry, tart cherry, bell pepper, yeast and food minerals.

This sparkling wine has a beautiful salmon pink color with a constant fine bead that is medium bodied with high acidity and a long fresh, crisp, clean finish. Continued good health and stay safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

La Ciboise Luberon Red Grenache-Syrah Blend 2017

Nice to have this impromptu Chapoutier study during a casual night out with friends. Expectedly, Chapoutier orders their wines pretty well. The "lesser" of the two was certainly lighter and simpler, but one I'd happily grab for over the other when looking for a mid-week drink, and perhaps aptly priced for doing so too. Brambly, peppery, herby aromas lead a bold blue-fruited and spicy palate. The flavours are ripe, yet remains juicy enough courtesy of well-judged acidity and hints of mineral goodness. Chalky tannins and a medium finish. A proper southern Rhone, so can't complain. — 2 months ago

Bar-M Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

Delectable Wine

Diatom’s 2009 Chardonnay Bar-M, from vineyards in Los Alamos, is a gorgeous wine and a fabulous value. Tangerine oil, white flowers and light tropical accents give this curvy, airy Santa Barbara Chardonnay so much appeal. Breezy saline notes linger on the wonderfully inviting finish. $25.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, October 2020) — 25 days ago

Les Varonniers Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2011

What a difference a ...bottle makes: a few months ago I had another bottle of this wine and it was evolved a bit too far. Not this bottle! It needed some air but then reveals a nice nose of mature Syrah. Intense nose of red/black berries and dusty pepper/spice. Palette is fresh and fruity with soft tannins and a bit of zesty bite at the end. Good balance. — 2 days ago

La Bernardine Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2016

It's not necessarily the wine I'd prefer to drink, but the 2016 La Bernadine was certainly aptly placed (by Chapoutier) as the "better" wine in our impromptu Chapoutier study. Compared to the 2017 La Ciboise, this was more concentrated, primary, and persistent. It's a fruit bomb on both the nose and palate, mixing red and black fruits, and a discernable candied sweetness in the back of the palate. Spices, dried herbs, and musk sit nicely in the background. I feel the acidity and plush tannins helps mask the whooping 15% abv. Finishes long and sweet, with a interesting hint of orange rind-like bitterness. The quality is undeniable, but it's not a wine I'd care for. — 2 months ago
