La Belle Aude Marsanne 2019

9.1

Gorgeous s. French white. Delicate and wispy-textured, peach focused with a slatey backbone and salty finish. Understated and very very pretty. A great discovery, especially in the context of how little attention is paid to whites in the region. Best at cellar temp. Obviously young and improved steadily with a bit of air time — 3 days ago

Here’s another smoking good southern french white. Very interesting blend and the first time I can remember seeing Carignan Blanc. Also Roussanne Grenache Blanc and Vermentino. Sulfur needs to blow off. So beautifully textured and detailed. Glides across the palate. Green apple, citrus, almond, custard/fondant/banana on the palate and a floral, carnation (?) finish. Seductive. This would be so fun to throw into a blind tasting. Love. — 2 days ago

Faire la Fete

Crémant de Limoux Brut Rosé

Light salmon in color.

Fruity nose with raspberries, strawberries, lemons, citrus, bread, green apples, grapefruits, spices, minerals and yeast.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity. Refreshing with medium sized bubbles.

Dry on the palate with citrus, green apples, grapefruits, bitter herbs, spices, yeast, strawberries, minerals, sea salt and white pepper.

Medium finish with tangy limes.

This is a nice surprise. A very elegant sparkling wine from France. Easy drinking with a nice mouthfeel. Shows nice complexity and good by itself or with food.

I paired it with a nice day by the pool.

Made in the traditional method.

12.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$20.

Pasta Sunday. Nothing bad with this wine. A few years of age knocks the harsh edges off for me. Welcome home to the astronauts. Fun to watch space travel again. — 2 days ago

Cote des Roses Languedoc Syrah Blend Rosé 2018

Very (white) floral nose with additional touches of unripe peach and dried berries. Tangy melon and citrus flavors. Hint of chalk on the finish. Solid wine and solid value. — 7 days ago

Excellent tip from a friend, great discovery. Barnyard on the nose upon opening thankfully blew off. Very vivid, blue fruited with a mulberry / violet / spice character. Chewy finish. This feels very alive. Love the style. — 2 days ago

Plutôt austère, assez marqué par les arômes végétaux et de cuir. Fruit un peu en retrait. — 4 days ago

Château Puech-Haut

Le Benjamin Barrique

This wine is super nice to drink for apéros : it’s light, easy to drink, smells so good! The packaging is stunning! I think it makes a good present of it. Easy to stock in a big fridge and to add more wine already refreshed when necessary because of the package 😊 — 5 days ago
