This is Clos Pepe’s Dark Side bottling, which they only made a few times. What an excellent PN, loaded with dark cherries, other dark fruits and some cola. There was a little left in the decanter about an hour or so after dinner and the fruit was gone as well as the long sweet finish. I had opened and decanted it about an hour before dinner and maybe that was too much time but got through dinner fine. — 9 days ago
N: Salty dried butterscotch/caramel, Seashore, old boats, rot in the best of ways.
P: Sweet but no… upon entry, the impression is of something unctuous and sweet, for a bit of a second, then DRY. Yellow and gold flowers/melon,
heady at 16°. Great w baby artichokes and Parm and pan seared Branzino.
Really fine weirdo stuff. I’ve never splurged for the Quattro Palmas…but….

Delicious traditional method sparkling with such toasty, almond brioche notes next to apple, pear, white blossom… just lovely.
Happy National Bubbly Day!

This is a great way to drink an older white. A little funky and oxidized, subdued, some apple juice notes. Great value, ~$40. — a month ago
