Lots of dried, black fruit on the palate and leather on the nose. Fruity and dry. — 21 days ago
Nice color. Dark red with a ruby glow. Smells nice. Rose hip tea, rocks, and plum sauce. Flavors are balanced and full. Slightest edge of raspberry chocolate. More rose stuff (petals over hips). Hibiscus. A bit of earth mixed with stems of a woody plant perhaps. Elegant and silky smooth. This is a lovely blend of Portuguese native varietals that could go head to head with great Southern French or Northern Italian wines. — a month ago
Clear medium gold that’s strikingly attractive. The nose is so pretty and deep with lemon and herbal aromas immediately. There are some almond notes after a bit of time along with delicate flowers. The chalk here is incredible and long. Peaches and pears, with apples and moist limestone.
The word that instantly comes to mind with this champagne is purity. It’s so pure, so alive, so vibrant. And such a good pure representation of the terroir. From Oiry in the Côte des Blancs and based from 2016 vintage. This is an intense wine and probably not for everyone, but it’s so charming and precise. Beautifully racy acidity and exquisite structure. Fresh as hell and sharp, in that good way.
That Grand Cru fruit struts its stuff in the mouth. The chalk just screams at you until you fall head over heels in love. The citrus begins to shine along with more almonds and toasted bread. Long finish with a small bite of spice. Superbly spectacular. A real gem of a champagne. — 10 days ago
Nice bold and fruity old vine Zinfandel - exactly what I wanted from a trusted central California winery. (Paired well with spicy nachos.) — a month ago
