Nose of dried violet, fire roasted green bell pepper, earth, cherry, iron.
Raspberry, cherry, cranberry, and earth. Still great acidity with dusty, slightly astringent tannin. Love that lingering cranberry bitterness on the finish.
Wonderful stuff with all the classic Loire cab franc notes you know and love. Still a lot of structure there 10 years out. Could go longer to soften out and evolve. — 2 days ago
This is not the rosé! Hopefully that gets corrected shortly. How much love I have for red bubbles. My goth heart jetés. This is all dried herb drawer and dried jam jar. Like seriously the scent of an empty black currant jam jar. There is a hint of sour dairy beguiling me behind. Labeled as demi sec but feels quite dry to me. The tannins have a friendly grip like the soft side of a Velcro enclosure. — 17 hours ago

A beautiful deep red wine. It opens with notes of red fruit: strawberry, raspberry, cherry. The attack is supple and beautiful freshness, the fruit is ripe on a beautiful intensity. supple and peppery finish.A fruity, crunchy wine. somewhere between Loire and Beaujolais — 2 hours ago
Very pretty Vouvray from the cellar. Not massive and probably a little past its prime but still drinking really nicely... high tone perfume, honeyed, confectionary and granitic. A bit oxidized but this marries nicely with the bit of residual sugar, the silky texture and firm acidity of the Loire Chennin. — 14 days ago
Holy Joly! A gorgeous, glossy golden hue that’s slightly cloudy in the natural, Joly way. A beautiful perfume of orange citrus and honeysuckle. Wild but not funky. Not even sure of that makes sense but I think you would get it once you smell it. On the palate it’s marmalade and heavily bruised apple...reminds me a lot of the 2013 I had earlier this year...but more powerful. The snappy acidity gives it a long, long finish. I adore these wines. — 8 days ago
Amazing 50 year bottle bought to celebrate parents golden wedding anniversary. Still bright golden in colour, complex (yeasty?) aroma that is difficult to pin point. Great tension on the palate, racy and nervy, with quite high acidity which surprised me for a Demi-sec. A real experience. — 11 days ago
