Don’t judge a book - this is a deceptively forward, rich, and concentrated little Loire sparkler. Pretty glowing magenta. Aromas of wild strawberries, black cherry, and forest growth with playful off-dry fruity creamy flavors - cranberry, blood orange, and watermelon. For the holidays. — 12 days ago
The bottle that got me into so called “natural wines”. Fresh and lively fruit and acidity, but enough structure to really pair with a wide range of dishes.
2011 was the last vintage grown by the late producer and where his wife and family had to take over the winemaking after his tragic passing.
Happy to share it with the person that introduced me to this wine 6yrs ago. — 17 days ago
Is it possible to drink a cloud? A perfumed nose of honey and hints of caramel that never overpower but instead tickles your nasal passage . You feel it enter you mouth but instead of exploding it just expands and covers your tastebuds with incredible freshness that defies its age. Honey, apricot , salt and that chenin wax appear in a flotilla of flavors . — 2 days ago
Welcome back old friend. Brick hue & translucent edge, deep black fruits & burnished leather nose, lovely medium bodied cassis blackberry body. Having drank many of these releases young, the bass and deeper notes are starting to ring. Dressner import. Yum, big time. No, I didn’t drink this at temple, but Delectable stopped feeding my proper location — 10 days ago
The 2016 'Les Romains' is simply gorgeous, as it begins with striking aromatics of wildflowers, honey, lychee and cantaloupe that immediately draw you in. The texture and minerality is simply stunning, as flavors of with tree fruit and citrus oil leave a mark. The oily, unctuous character this possesses is found in very few Sauvignon Blancs. An absolutely brilliant wine from one of the leading producers in the region. Drink 2019-2033- 95 — 13 hours ago
