Needs 60 minutes to calm down. Do not drink before then.

Nose is tropical. Lovely.

Palate -elegant tropical fruit. Sort of this creamy tropical elegance.

Long elegant tropical finish.

As this opens it becomes much more elegant. Almost a tropical perfume.

An hour in this gets crazy. Tropical flower perfume. Insane. Oh my god. Like a walk in a rainforest filled with tropical fruits during a rainstorm with the rain aerating the first with tropical fruit and flower perfume. Elite aromatics. Jesus Christ good. Palate is elegant. Almost golden. With a bit more grip and density this would be even higher scoring. Internal aromatics are a thing of beauty. Papaya guava. Wow. Wow. Wow.

Yummy...I think it's creamy beacuse of the cheese I've paired it with. Crisp and not overly sweet. — a month ago

Nose is complex off the bat. Tropical fruit, wild flowers. Like papaya and mango but also a cutting smokey floral aspect. Hint of high end bling bling honey. Sweet and savory honey like aspect. Feral. Really just full of character. Palate is clean, elegant, balanced and super pure. Juicy, nimble and really graceful. Nice concentration and depth. Tropical fruit continues on the palate. Sneaky length and intense mineral crescendo on the finish. — 4 months ago

Cuvée "Le Jaja" Chignin Jacquère 2016

Showing really well, perfect lunchtime wine. Super aromatic, pungent, heady, very floral. White flower with a honeyed edge and a kiss of volatility. Flowers, quince, white raspberry and slate on the palate with a bruised apple finish. Lingers with a cidery impression. Love the balance of palate richness and nervy acids. Complex and delicious. Love! — 2 months ago

Cuvée "Les Friponnes " Roussanne 2017

Lyle Fass

Nose of intense alpine minerality. White flowers. Custard. Hint of medicinal quality. More like an apothecary. Not bad medicinal if that is not clear. Clean and way batter than my last bottle’s aromas. Palate is juicy and clean, long and tense. Really long. Terrific elegance and purity. Nice spice. Balanced and very pure. Exotic tropical fruits. @Delectable Wine this is roussanne not Jacquere. — 6 months ago
