Just delicious! I’ve had great luck w/Savoie wines and this was no different: pours extremely dark, inky, opaque, brooding taking its time to unfurl black & red fruit w/depth, earthy w/a hi tone note along with licorice and forest floor. Big mouth filling broad across palate, gobs of fruit but all fit into sturdy tannic frame. Well cut - a Country Squire — 5 days ago

Aroma of ripe cherries, herbaceous and foxy, with a hint of mint. On the palate, it’s rich and intense, with fine tannins and long finish. — 11 days ago

Jonquille Vieilles Vignes Terroir d'Ayze Gringet 2019

Complacent and shy, with bits of distinction. Needs a little time and brain juice to find the hidden quirks. The dill, the sour cream, the spearmint. Quiet entrances. Surrounded by a more familiar crew. Lemon zest, crisp pear, tangerine, and black pepper. — 16 days ago

#4 of Jura Savoie evening
Lovely aromatics, very Pinot style with red berry fruit and nice undergrowth. A good mineral whiff, too.
On the palate this is feather light but with loads of character. Nice precision with a light yet persistent tannic frame, juicy acidity and light red berry fruit.
Brilliant drinkability though, I admit, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
Love it!

Cerdon Bugey Sparkling Rosé Poulsard Gamay 2017

Absolutely lovely. Forgot about this bottle in a not temp controlled cabinet for a few years and the wine’s better than when I bought it. On the sweet side but it’s gained complexity and certainly has the acid to balance. — 9 days ago
