Lumiere De Vie

A Tribute to Grace Wines

Vie Caprice Vineyard Grenache 2017

Excited to revisit this beauty. Bought as a half case of 6. Right out of the bottle, I was immediately struck at how light the colour is. Loads of strawberry and clove spice on the palate with a stunning medium minus texture. Perhaps a bit astringent on the backend, but that will come together more over the next few years. I just had to try one early as a baseline. — 17 days ago

9.1

Authentic but undefined aroma, lacks clarity at the top range, and needs more balsamic and minty nuances to balance the smoky and earthy leather tar licorice aromas to complete the range, the sandy tannins with concentrated fruit on top of it. Old-school but there is a hint of oak in the texture, reminiscent of some La Morra. — 2 months ago

Dessimis Pinot Grigio 2018

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2018 Pinot Grigio Dessimis is a pleasure to taste and also to look at with its beautiful orange, almost-amber color. Notes of dried apricot and peach take on a yellow citrus twang, with hints of almond paste adding an alluring richness. It’s textural and soothing on the senses without a hard edge in sight; instead coasting effortlessly across the palate with ripe orchard fruits, young mango and a hint of exotic spice. An inner sweetness lingers with an air of brown butter and hazelnut. The Dessimis is matured all in stainless steel and takes its color from spending ten months on the fine lees.

Vie di Romans

Chardonnay 2018

Delectable Wine
9.4

As is usually the case, the Chardonnay Vie di Romans really stands out amongst its peers, especially in the 2018 vintage. There’s an undeniable richness to the bouquet as this gorgeous expression slowly blossoms in the glass. Pretty white and yellow florals, lemon confit, hints of custard, peach and sweet melon all come forward over time. It’s silky and pliant in texture, with formidable weight, yet balanced by brisk acids, as ripe citrus-tinged fruits and minerals excite the senses. A subtle hint of sweet exotic spice and almond lingers on the long and dramatic finish. The 2018 is charming today, yet also full of potential. (Eric Guido, Vinous, January 2021)
