Domaine de Rapatel

Cuvée Gitane Red Blend 2012

Mystery wine - why is this wine marked “2012” in pen on the label? Why is it $25 despite almost a decade of age? Why is it good considering all of this?

Pours a purple bricked hue, a little brown showing that age. High pitched perfumes of spiced blueberries, plums, rose petal. Tart - sometime abrasive and sometimes just right. Settles score with a little bit of fat dried fruit - raisins and prunes.

Les Rouliers Vin de France Chenin Blanc 2015

A Chenin unicorn that flys off any wine list it finds itself on. In this case, 86d out of only 6 bottles received by Per Se. The nose is what is most captivating. So unique. It’s a bit less reductive and perhaps more exotic than the Noels de Montbenault of the same vintage. It’s layered with flavors of ginger, Leflaive-like sesame, dried apricots, sour apple and salted hazelnuts. There is good richness and a wild texture that’s balanced by fine acidity. A delicious Chenin that I wish there was more of! — 11 days ago

Another surprise of a humble white still alive and dancing after 17 years. Nice deep yellow color and attractive nose of beer mature white fruits with good acidic and balance on palate and finish. Great with the scallops and Amah beat balls. 40% Colombard 30 Ugni Blanc 30 Gros Manseng 11.5 ABV. Unusual and interesting with such age. — 19 days ago
