Great bouquet- will try again. — 3 days ago
A fine unique blend. Dry well balanced and very smooth. The aroma hints at bold and rich but the palate comes across light and clean. More like a Pinot flavors. Then it ends with strong alcohol though the label says 13%. Very enjoyable being tasty and unique. — 9 months ago

Another old friend. The tag old reliable doesn’t quite do it justice because it’s much more than that. It’s so classy and beautiful.
A rather subtle, paler shade of pink. Bubbles are sparse in the Riedel Veritas champagne glass. Full and creamy with a lovely bouquet. Blood orange and a whiff of passionfruit to start with. This is not a powerhouse nose that blows you away. It lulls you into a sense of security and warmth like a familiar lover. The memory of her and the scent of this turns you wistful. Lemon rind and faded strawberries along with crushed herbs. By letting it sit in the glass for a bit you’ll be rewarded with greenery and autumn flowers and her.
As is typical for a Bouzy champagne, this is predominantly Pinot Noir with 20% Chardonnay. A hefty amount of still red wine added to the blend which lends it viscosity and character. Incredibly engaging and charming, this is not another run of the mill rosé. There’s power here but the grace and lithe nature steal the show. Juicy red berries on the attack matched by vanilla and dare I say it, a touch of sexy funk. Warm, toasted biscuits and tart acidity. Please don’t think of this just as another pink sparkler, it’s a cut above. It dances in your memory. — a month ago
Ripe, juicy berry and spice flavours from a winemaker who knows what he is doing. A classic Barossa shiraz with many years of good drinking. — 10 months ago
Nice example of a Michigan red blend in the style of Bordeaux. Starts full fruit and finishes drier with some mild tannin. Worked well with venison enchiladas. — 2 years ago
