Le Souffle Vin de France Melon de Bourgogne 2019

Philippe has only been making wine since 2015, but this feral, hazy Muscadet shows a level of restraint and civility that often comes later in a winemaker’s arc. A blend of Melon from 5 hectares, he uses a screw press and zero S02. Its A riper voluptuous Muscadet with plenty of concentration and acid. Yeasty lemons and white flowers, flavors of white peach and apricot in a saline bath. — 16 hours ago

Looks really inviting.

Reine des Fleurs

Rosé Blend

Not bad for 7 bucks. Quite good in fact. Very minerally and floral all at once which I do declare, is a good combo. — 5 days ago

European Cellars

Novellum Chardonnay 2018

The 18 is better than the 16 which was better than the 17.
For $10.00 I give major props, why can’t California make a $10.00 Chardonnay this good?
If it was $25.00 then yeah 91 points, I’m rating based on QPR

L'Anglore Terre d'Ombre Grenache 2017

Am always impressed by the intensity of flavors and long finish. You can tell it’s not over extracted by the bright color so that’s not where the intensity comes from. Lush red berries followed by some spicy notes with a touch of mocha on the finish. I always try to get my hands on some if I can find some. — 10 days ago

Domaine Trois Filles

Bandol Rosé

2018 vintage. Pale pink with copper hue (what the French call "œil de perdrix" or "partridge's eye"). First impression on the nose not very attractive, but give it a few minutes in the glass and discover nice flowery aromas and red berries. Serious gastronomic rosé with good concentration, juicy fruit, spices and more than decent mineral length. A blend of Mourvèdre (60%), Cinsault and Grenache. Well done by this young estate (first vintage 2013). Abv. 13,5 %. — 5 days ago

Domaine Les Capriades

Pet' Sec Rosé Blend 2018

Pure strawberries with a touch of raspberry fruit and raspberry leaves. Like a strawberry granita with mint. Zippy acid with a hint of herbal/bitter tannins on the finish. Pure pure fruit with a mineral core. Amazingly clean for a pet nat. Medium-coarse bubbles. Very enjoyable and refreshing. — 3 days ago

Domaine Denis Tardieu

Une Tranche Sudiste Red Blend 2017

Powerful and also prime for a mild chill. A ripe blend of what I think is mostly Syrah and about 15% Grenache. Lots of dark fruits - plums, figs, blackberries, and sweet tobacco. — 8 days ago
