I do like this Polish immigrants craft.

The blend of fruits are a broad spectrum of, sour, candied and floral, ruby, mid & dark, red fruits, spice, cinnamon stick, dark spice, floral heaven & flat out elegance.

More tomorrow.

Cuvée des Conti Bergerac Sec Sémillon 2017

Sud-Ouest tasting #2
Elegant, complex, poised, the Semillon breatdh of lemon wax matching the floral Muscadelle nicely. Beautiful mouthfeel, layered, coating, escapes the obvious clichees. Really nice.

Domaine de Thalabert Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2017

Impressively complex for the price. Lilting purple flowers, black cherry, black plum skin, raspberry compote, tarragon and something like fresh sweet mint leaf which I’ve never had from Syrah. Great acid. — 2 days ago

La Maison Bleue Hermitage Syrah 2015

It’s a walk in the woods with a bowl of cherries. The nose presents with woods and earth. The palate brings forward subtle fruit notes. This is a complex beauty that paired perfectly with my rustic herb grilled whole chicken. While I’m generally not a huge fan of Syrah, this wine is wonderful. — 5 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Morgon Gamay 2016

Cloudy raspberry color that’s so intriguing. On the nose it’s crisp pomegranate, raspberry, and cranberry with subtle notes of smoke and dusty herbs. In the mouth the fruit is snappy and pure, with a pretty crushed rock mineral streak. High acid with sneaky tannic grip on the impressively long finish. Delicate, while remaining structured, and beautifully pure. — 7 days ago
