L'Effet Papillon Côtes Catalanes Rose Grenache Noir 2021

Tasting this 2021 vintage with Alicia in Slaughter Beach DE, watching the sunset. Alicia says, “I like it. A nice mineral finish.” I taste a nice strawberry finish. We’ll discuss this down to the last drop tonight, lol. — 6 months ago


Sherry Oak Single Malt Whisky

A chance to compare again with proper notes. Aromas of maple syrup and honey. The Sherry sweetness comes through, with a toasty, nutty character on top of the grape. Very nice. — 2 months ago

Domaine Le Roc

La Folle Noire d'Ambat Fronton Negrette 2020

After the Sicilian off dry white which I drank only a glass of in disappointment, I decided to open something I knew would make me happy. We are watching Dunkirk while drinking this wine and the contrast between the on-screen drama and the funky liveliness in the glass is stunning!
As usual the nose is a bit funky at fist and takes a good 20 to 30 minutes to set into place. Then it's violet, blueberry, clay, that iron thing too, which I always smell in this cuvée, no matter the vintage. The palate is big, bright and fruity. There are blueberry notes all along, some cherry too. Some width, a nice and soft mouthfeel, some tannins in the rear, and a really nice anf long finish with fruits, some pepper, and a nice tannic layer. There is a subtle savory note too, almost meaty, that makes it more complex than you would have bet at first. Of course this is, as always, a very biased review, but I mean, what's not to like there?

Vin de Pays du Gard Rosé Blend 2013

This one really resonated. Tasted amazing the first and second day. Aromatics were petrol and calcareous. — 6 months ago

Domaine Lafond

Roc-Epine Lirac Grenache Blend 2020

Lots of juicy blue fruit. Black pepper and earth. Just a little savory. Tremendous Southern Rhône QPR and a great match for Texas style BBQ if you can believe it — 8 months ago
