I have often struggled to appreciate Roussanne as it often lacks the acidity that I prefer in white wines. That being said, I always keep an open mind and experiences like this are the reason why. As a pairing, this was absolutely perfect with our seafood boil. Richly floral with stone fruits and nuts. A wine of texture with an undeniable oily-ness about it. The finish lasted 15-20 seconds; just long enough for the next bite of crab, lobster or shrimp. Repeat. This was markedly better than the first bottle we had a couple years back and I have to believe a little cellar time and the right food made the difference. — 3 days ago
Happy Christmas Eve!!
Came in a really cool James Bond box with an awesome lifting mechanism!
Great start to the holiday season! Medium gold color. Classic Bollinger nose. Wine is very complex with brioche, nuts, apples, peanut butter, and lots of caramel. Dessert in a glass! I don’t think this has much aging potential so drink up! — a month ago
The strong fruity nose is noticeable at the first pop of the cork and fully develops in the glass. The deep opaque purple hints at what is to come. The jammy taste of strawberries and plums is complemented by a perfectly sweet finish. An early Christmas gift — a month ago
This is such a ridiculous wine. Nose is so high toned and also luxurious. Beautiful herbals, high toned sour cherry, cherry flower and mid season cherry. Floral, some terrific spice. This has greatly improved on PNP aromatically at this point. Gorgeous, clear, precise and super focused nose. Just the most stunning complex spices imaginable. Really impressed. Palate is tight as expected but it’s like 10% more open than it was earlier this year. But it is all there perfect harmony. Amazing fruit and density yet elegant and light on its feet. Big, noble tannins, so so precise and fine with just unreal clear and focused cherry fruit of the mid season and sour kind. Needs mega air but man will this go places. I’ll be back. As this slowly opens the fruit sweetens. The nose gets more floral and much more harmonious. Awesome inner mouth aromas and terrific spice and energy. Now we are taking. — a month ago

12/29/2020: Very sweet. Tastes as good as other sweet raspberry wines I've bought from wineries. I purchased this at Kroger I believe. Will buy again — a month ago
