A sophisticated rosé. May not have enough sweetness and fruit for the average rosé drinker at Plates. — 2 months ago
Honeysuckle, Apricot and a musky note on the nose. On the palate initially a sweet mandarin fleshy note with apricot. With time a plethora of fruits - tropical, stone fruit and citrus even ripe banana. There is a saline streak in the overall minerality. Medium minus acid. Medium plus to profound intensity. This wine has it all. Look up the word delicious in the Dictionary and you will see a photo of this CdP Blanc from Beaucastel!! A blend of 80% Roussanne; 15% Grenache Blanc and 5 % of a few other varieties including Clairette. Lucky to have 1 more bottle. — 2 months ago
Soaks into my palate like a good body lotion to the skin, nourishing and moisture-rich but absorbs right in without any residue. In fact, the more you use (drink?) the dewier and more golden and perfect you appear, is the this the BB cream of wines? I dunno but it is beautiful and you are too.
Also there is an almond nature that haunts me as I have sense memories of an extraordinary hair conditioner that smelled of amaretto.
Okay actual notes: golden in color (duh) medium plus nose of ripe yellow plum, apricot, flowers and honeycomb, on the palate (omg what a silky) medium plus body, dry, medium acid, all the aforementioned flowers with a bit of herbs tossed in to boot. It has a small and friendly bite no more threatening than a friendly kitten. Long finish and like I said it starts unctuous then seamlessly soaks in leaving only the aroma and memory which (if your glass is full enough) you fortunately can revisit. Just to be sure. — a month ago
