So mellow in a really good way. Light cherry. A little smoky. — 6 days ago
I hope everyone is well? Tonight I have opened the 2017 Maison Roy & Fils Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley Dundee Hills, Oregon made with organic grapes.
On the nose there is bing cherry, raspberry, clove, floral notes, a good funk, mint, wet leaves and forest floor.
On the palate there is bing cherry, raspberry, cranberry, clove, spice, vanilla, violet and forest floor.
This wine is medium bodied with medium to + acidity and medium to + fine tannins that seamlessly move into a long tart berry finish. Please everyone as we move into this weekend stay healthy and safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 14 hours ago
Beautiful floral bouquet and spices, touch of cinnamon and some black cherries. The wine is surprisingly quite open for a young Dujac, drinks really well, touch of oak and stems on the palate but used so judiciously, good structure but with fine grain tannins that are elegant and approachable, absolutely delicious and was gone in a flash. 90-91 at this level
Superbe nez floral, un peu terreux, avec des épices, canelle un peu et une touche boisée, mais de façon judicieuse, tout comme en bouche, belle structure, des tannins de belle texture, vraiment délicieux et surprenant pour un jeune Dujac, bouteille sifflée en un temps record. 90-91 à ce niveau — 6 days ago
Red berries, a rouch of cinnamon and spices. Fresh, elegant, lots of energy, nice soft tannins, well balanced, the most approchable and less powerful of all the premier crus from JM Vincent, very good, drank in a flash. 89-90
Fruits, rouges, touche de canelle. Frais, fin, énergique avec des tannins présents mais tellement approchables en ce moment, bien équilibré et le moins puissant des premiers crus de ce domaine, très bon, ça se boit tout seul. 89-90

Rosé and comfort food - heck yes! Growing up my mum made ‘sausage swirls’ which are pastry, sausage, potato and cheese swirls. And now they’re my go-to comfort food - however I add a jar of jalapeños 🌶 for a bit of a kick 🙌
I thought they’d be a great match to this bottle of Lansdowne 2019 Pinot Rosé which we were sent as a sample from Good Pair Days (thanks guys!).
Only a small quantity of this wine was made (177 cases in fact) due to extreme weather conditions that year.
If you want to give it a whirl, and/or try out the Good Pair Days experience, make sure to add the code “travellingcorkscrew” for a discount at the checkout 😉
I felt like I was watching the sunset 🌅 as the red-y orange like liquid was poured into my glass. On the nose it had me thinking about wild strawberries 🍓, tangerine and pink grapefruit. While in the mouth it’s smooth and hella delicious. Refreshing, comforting and bloody yum.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it. By using the above promo code I will receive a small amount of commission.

Earthy aromas with ripe plum notes - a very Otago nose albeit in the lighter spectrum. Same notes transfer to the medium bodied sappy palate. Not as full bodied as I was expecting. Quite Burgundian in weight and texture. Made by the equally earthy Nick Mills, owner and winemaker who made his presentation at Pinot NZ 2018 in Wellington in bare feet. Rippon is biodynamic and chemical free. I subsequently had a nice chat with him - a genuine bloke. Must be one of the prettiest vineyard scenes anywhere in the world sloping up from Lake Wanaka. Whilst this is classed as Central Otago this is not as full bodied as the Bannockburn/Felton Road district. — 6 days ago
Nice Burgundy wine, rather light. A nose of tangy red fruits typical of Pinot Noir (raspberry, redcurrant). Wonderfully conducted vinification, bringing slightly woody aging notes. The body is full, harmoniously blending primary and tertiary notes. The finish is developed, nothing more.
Joli vin bourguignon, plutôt léger. Nez de fruits rouges acidulés typique du pinot noir (framboise, groseille). Vinification admirablement conduite, apportant les notes d’élevage légèrement boisées. Le corps est étoffé, mêlant harmonieusement les notes primaires et tertiaires. La finale est développée, sans plus. — 21 days ago
Hay and an animal side when just opened, turning into more red fruit, raspberries and spices. The wine is delicious, tart classy red fruit balanced with soft tannins with a beautiful grain, the finish is long, classy and elegant with a slight feel of wildness. Still got gas in the tank and delicious now. 92-93
Au départ, Nez de foin, animal se change ensuite sur plus de fruits rouges, framboises et épices, comme un côté anisé. Le vin est délicieux, un petit fruit acidulé, mais balancé par des tannins magnifiques, avec une finale presque sauvage mais avec classe et élégance tout de même. Superbe bouteille à point, mais encore dans son plateau de maturité je pense. 92-93

Reddish in color with a wide reddish rim and medium plus intensity. Very pretty.
On the nose bing cherries, blueberries, spices, light oak, light red candy, earth and black pepper.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.
Dry on the palate with bing cherries, raspberries, blueberries, light wood, light earth, spices and peppercorn.
Medium plus on the finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.
This 4 year old Pinot Noir from Sonoma County is drinking very nicely now. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.
Fruit forward and easy drinking with a spicy finish. Fun wine and very tasty now. Alcohol is nicely integrated by now.
Will continue to drink nicely in the next 3 to 5 years.
Good right out of the bottle. I gave it a light chill and had it by the pool. Paired nicely with a Double cream Brie cheese.
100% Pinot Noir grapes from a Single Vineyard. A small production of only 92 cases. Aged in 30% new oak barrels.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

Superb Morey Villages that needed a bit of time in the cellar to open up some. All the power of a Morey with freshness and elegance, nice pure fruit, lovely and silky tannins, long delicious finish, really good especially given this cold 2011 vintage. 90-91 easy.
Superbe Morey Villages qui méritait du temps en cave pour s’adoucir un peu et s’ouvrir. Toute la structure d’un Morey avec du beau fruit très pur et des tannins veloutés sur une finale persistante, fraîcheur et élégance aussi, vraiment très bon, compte tenu du millassez froid aussi. 90-91
