La Dame Rousse Lirac Red Rhone Blend 2018

I got suckered into this delicious and relatively expensive rose by a particularly enterprising sommelier. One who, not shockingly, also talked me into several other bottles just beyond my max price range. In any event, this is deliciously complex. He told me it is funky, but it is only funky the way your 80-year-old grandma dancing the tootsie roll to Earth, Wind, and Fire is funky. Instead, this is delightfully complex and creamy, with a finish of black pepper and faint peppermint. — 6 days ago

Cuvée La Reine des Bois Lirac White Rhone Blend 2015

If honeysuckle and tangerines coupled... what a great nose!

Heavier bodied, with a hint of candied ginger, buttery eucalyptus leaves, and a touch of anise.
Superb.

La Reine des Bois Lirac Red Rhone Blend 2014

Wow! So much better value than some CdP.
Plum, cassis, licorice, leather, and earth. Decanted for 30 minutes. This is just entering its drinking window so no rush...

La Dame Rousse Tavel Rosé Blend 2018

Another terrific Tavel from a top Rhone producer. Limited availability in Texas. Approx 4-6 million bottles annually are produced by the entire Tavel AOC, which is less some single bottlings of Provence Rosé (e.g. Whispering Angel). 2018 is bit riper than our favorite 2014 release, but this could be due to the blend this year: 60% Grenache, 10% Cinsault, 10% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 5% Bourboulenc and 5% ClairetteABV 14.5% ABV, no oak used. Would be nice to try this producer's other two rosés. Red plum, bright cherry, white flowers, and garrigue. — 3 months ago
