For $13.00 🤷🏼♂️, More than half Viognier, with the balance rounded out by Roussanne, Bourboulenc and just 2% Grenache Blanc, t
Definitely a case buy for the summer,
Seriously don’t know what white this is, says Blanc on K&L where I bought it, but doesn’t show up on delectable..

Galant middagsröding. Nästan godare å moffigare dagen därpå. Småpartierna. Pompette. — 3 days ago
Flinty minerality, orange peel and a distinct and intense shot of herbes de Provence. The lack of fruit might leave you wondering where the 93 point RPWA score came from, but this is a focused, unique, and mind-bending wine from 140+ year old vines. Pairs awesomely with French fries. — 17 days ago
Reading Cork Dork. So far, it’s captivating.
Rich, dense, perfume of leather, pumpkins, and cinnamon.
Sweet licorice and blackberry compote right at the forefront. Followed by a juicy berry mid palate and a kick of garam masala and red pepper flake spice right as you’re setting the glass down.
A medium to high acidity, a bit much for this composite of flavor profile, but it still works — probably needs a bit of age. Pretty solid overall. — 6 days ago
Actually this is “Le Rose de Simone” Seguret Rose (not on Delectable?).
Absolutely lovely southern French Rose, initially shows lovely fresh white peach aromas, then some subtle red berry flavors along with ripe peach, supple, balanced, wonderful sipper, not at all heavy, wonderful!! — 10 days ago
Zuriah’s medium red. Reminds me of France with Milena and Myles and Zuriah so I’m not objective. Seems like a very universal red wine. Zuriah says it’s smoky but not too much. I don’t taste it but I do smell it when she mentions it.
Bold but not bitter. I liked it a lot at first but I feel like all red wine’s unpleasant flavors build more than white wines — 6 days ago
Cellared for 1.5 yrs. What a great value wine. Had it with an olive caper shallot chicken dish with anchovy radishes. Tomato leaf, green stemmed vegetal nose with a hint of mesquite or bbq sauce. Palette of cranberries, cherry and kids aquafresh. I think some of that minty bbq stuff comes from a bit of age. — 4 days ago
Another blockbuster Tavel from Morderée. The 2018 is as delicious as it gets and this is tasting better in 2020 than it did on arrival last year. I’d always attributed the unique zesty and pungent flavors in this wine with the tiny amounts of uniquely Tavel blending grapes... perhaps that remains true, but this wine is mostly Grenache 60%, with Cinsault/Syrah/Mourvèdre at 10% each, and Clairette/Bourboulenc at 5% each. Whatever the blend, they’ve nailed this one. Sadly, it’s quite pricey at over $30. Now if I could locate some LaFond in my area, we could crown a Tavel champion, but this one will be hard to beat. — 8 days ago
