Nose has carmel dipped strawberry, dried lemon zest, under-ripe lychee, grilled pear slice, slightly oxidized yellow apple slice and dry crushed rock.
Palate has honey drizzle over lemon slice, neutral oak, dried pineapple, pineapple core with light acidity and medium finish. A very nice wine for 2018, hitting this much too young. At $48 this is good, if you can land for under $40 it would be a way better value.
Cork pulled for a 5H slow oxidation.
Great pairing tonight with 'Georgian Chicken'; (local) chicken thighs with dry rub, seared in cast iron, then simmered/baked in a walnut/cilantro/jalapeno/tomato paste sauce, finished with pomegranate seeds & pomegranate vinegar drizzle. — 4 days ago

I think the J. Lassalle Cuvee Angeline has been my best bubbly yet; this NV Cachet OR is not to be ignored! Once it warms and opens a bit this is beautiful for the $40 through Kermit Lynch Wines! Apples, Pear, Minerals, Croissants, Kiwifruit!
Happy New Year to everyone in the Delectable Community (this is my New Years Eve). Cheers! 🥂 — a month ago
Oh those delightful little vin de liqueurs aka mistelles. This is a treat. Smells like grape jam and come to think of it there is a nuttiness that calls to mind a nut butter but more like a pistachio I think. A swirl of raspberry jam comes into play on the palate, weaving its way through bits and bobs of honeycomb. It’s not cloying though. Keeps you coming back for me. Keeps you young and honest. You like sweets, just admit it. Be the kid in the candy store. — 8 hours ago
Lemon and orange blossom. Ginger and diesel. Once the diesel character blows off the white spice really shines. Honestly, I prefer the Trocken, but the Spatlede is probably what most people are looking for. — a day ago
