Eyes right for just a mo... pasta and sage with butternut squash. Prep’d for my wife by yours truly 🙂
Now onto the wine... Visited Eminent and it was closed, but they threw me a bone. Looks like a cab in the glass, but the nose gives the game away. This is tightly wound and requires aging. Beautiful fruit support the tannins perfectly. Oak profile is neutral. A strong effort which is below my price pain threshold. — 15 hours ago
GPS stands for gamay blanc (which is actually chardonnay's local name) poulsard savagnin. It's a white made partly with red grapes processed as white ones. The nose is very joyful and soulful: white flowers, white fruits, grape. The palate is a model of balance between the fruits (white fruits, white flowers, grape, lime) and the acid backbone that takes every single other element of the palate on tour. The finish is long , refreshing, fruity. You don't want it to end anyway! — 8 days ago
Grapefruit and nectarine and blood orange, taking on an interesting savory edge after a few years in bottle, pronounced floral finish with noticeable heat. Not a summer sipper but a serious, hearty rose. Always a great way to drink pink on Valentine’s Day! — 4 days ago
A JV between Champagne Taittinger & Kobrand established in 1987. Ruby color with full red & black fruit aromas, with earthy tones. Aged for 10 months in oak, shows raspberry and black cherry flavors adding toasty oak and sweet delicate spice. Lively acidity and smooth dusty tannins, great mouth-feel that brings this wine to a lingering finish. Tasting Sample. — 19 hours ago
Gorgeous, rich bouquet of fruitpunch, spice, herbs, honey and a dash of a petrol. Apricot, peach, candied citrus, hints of almondpaste, honey and wool in the palate.
Concentrated and creamy mouthfeel. This is very well balanced and complete. Drinking at peak.
And @ under 20€, a real QPR-winner. — 2 days ago
a recent purchase of 2 bottles, this is gorgeous white Burgundy that is soft and billowing on the palate, yet it has a spine of acidity in the background. White flowers, citrus, real depth and breadth, it’s a very expansive wine that is in the zone. Lots of finesse and length, but not a real big wine, and no Ramonet mint, it is very enjoyable. — 4 days ago
Мокрая шерсть, солома, битый камень, крепкие желтые яблоки, консервированный ананас, бледная курага, семечки, каперсы, заветренный мёд, сухотравье. Среднее тело с хорошо сбалансированной кислотностью. Вначале чуть закрыто и плоско, но подышав открывает красивую фруктово-минеральную фактуру с заметной глубиной. Естественно и органично. В аромате больше смахивает на шенен, чем на шардоне. — 7 days ago
Nice dark tawny color. Opaque. Closed nose not giving much, even with air. Some sweetness with notes of rhubarb, raspberry, spice and plum. Lots of backbone in the mouth. Reasonable finish. Maybe it never got enough air over 2 hours. Have had better bottles of this. — 9 days ago
