9.3

Deep, brambly, dark berry fruit on the nose, dark flowers, blueberry, pine resin, alpine flowers and so much more. Awesome alpine nose. Amazing tangy and juicy blackberry fruit. Rustic tannins but somewhat refined. Delicious. So juicy and alive. Terrific.

24 hour update - so juicy and compact on the palate. Stunning freshness and depth. Awesome. 9.2 to 9.3.

Bellissimo! This blew the doors off: inky w/gorgeous aromas of foresty woodland berries, darker fruit, spice, pepper, lavender & garrigue… intriguing beguiling. Med to lighter weight but wore it well with lip-smacking dark berries and warm spices on palate. Finish was a bit disjointed but I’d like to revisit in a year or 2. Bump for QPR — 20 days ago

Bugey-Cerdon Sparkling Gamay Rosé

My favorite region for fun sparkling wine! Strawberry, raspberry and light brown sugar (granulated).
Unsure of the exact blend, but this should be mostly Gamay with Poulsard added.

This actually ended up being a really interesting Thanksgiving wine. 40% Gamay, 40% Chardonnay, and 20% Mondeuse. It ends the white or red question with a “How about both?” Light, high acid. Citrus, cranberry. Simple, but highly drinkable. Allows the food and company to take center stage. — a month ago
