Whispering Angel Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2020

Not remarkable but classic Provençal Rosé. Great QPR. Tastes exactly like a Rosé should. For under $20, it can’t be beat. — 7 days ago

Goldeneye (Duckhorn Vineyards)

Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2006

Nose has cherry jam, wet leather, wet leaves, alcohol and dried cranberries.

Palate has under-ripe tart cherry, dried raspberries, dry leather and faint dry soil notes.

Not holding as well as the 2005 enjoyed over two evenings earlier this week. If improvement comes at 24H, notes might be updated. Decanted 90m.

Bass Phillip

Since 1979 Pinot Noir 2020

Delectable: This is the new entry level Cuvée from Bass Phillip called “Since 1979 Pinot” not offered in your choices. This is the first vintage with Burgundian winemaker, Jacques Fourrier in charge. The first thing I noticed was how fresh and bursting with red fruits this was. Like raspberry, strawberry and cranberry leaping from the glass. No detectable oak influence - all about the fruit. Very approachable immediately - soft silky and delicious. While the other 3 Pinot Cuvées have increased in price this entry level has reduced to under $50 allowing more wine lovers to be introduced to the best producer of Pinot Noir in Australia IMO. Probably clever marketing. — 10 days ago

Domaine Tempier

Bandol Rosé Blend 2020

👃 Watermelon, cold peach, cold clementine peel, crushed rock.

👅 Under-ripe peach, cold raspberry, red currant, orange zest.

Lovely, been a while since we've grabbed this bottle, in a great spot, probably killer in 2-4Y, but I'll never know; one off purchase.

Yep. Always lovely (I rarely use that word, but all Tempier’s wines are lovely).

Château Calon-Ségur

Marquis de Calon Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Andrew Holod

Even better than the last bottle, though I slouched and drank it with cheese/crackers/fruit and on day two with grilled chicken, bulghur pilaf, stewed yellow squash and tomato/cucumber/feta/parsley salad.
Serious, savory, stony, sapid, vibrant, lively and delicious. A great value for what I paid, under $50 US, less of a good value from wine searcher at around $400 these days.
