L'imprévue Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes White Blend 2014

The wine is supposed to be a 50/50 blend of Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris. The GG wins of with loads of stone fruits and their pits. — 15 days ago

Interesting cassis nose to begin. — 9 days ago

Domaine Gauby

Vieilles Vignes Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes Grenache Blanc 2013

Complex white and not for the faint of heart. Slight oxidation, muted floral aromas with subtle notes of almonds, beeswax, vermouth and green olive. This is a vehicle to enhance food. — 23 days ago

Fragile Rosé Grenache Blend

Fragile - I don't believe it’s pronounced frah-ghee-lay - has a big, bright nose full of big, bright red fruit. A bit of heat pokes its head through, too, owing to the 15% alcohol content. That cherry-red fruit comes through on the palate as well, with a boatload of acidity to boot. The winery notes say Fragile pairs well with lighter fare and warm, sunny days. I'd have it with pork chops in a heartbeat. — a month ago

Drank 4/14/17. Decent pairing with chicken sausage and lentils.

Big nose of raspberry bramble, cherry, underbrush, and Blackberry liquer. Red fruits on the palate, with herbs, spice, and cherry. Medium to firm tannins on the finish, dominated by red fruit. A touch hot. I beleive WA went like 96 pts on that. Can't quite get there, but a nice wine for the price (roughly $27).

4/22/8/3/4 + 50 = 91 Pts.

Charivari Côtes du Roussillon Grenache Blend 2017

Love it! Natural-style, chillable, beautiful, easy-going, brett-lite cotes de roussillon. Drinks well on its own but could pair with almost anything. High recommendation! — 7 days ago

Bastide Miraflors

Cotes Catalanes Vieilles Vignes Syrah-Grenache Blend 2016

Bouquet of boysenberry marmalade on toast.

This is one of those wines that has a complete one to one relationship between bouquet and drinking experience.

Intense, lush, full fruit. Berries. Mango. The type of wine that would make an excellent base for a sangria on a warm summer eve.
