2012 vintage matured nicely. More rounded than in 2015. — 12 days ago
Red wine from the Languedoc-Roussillon region of the vineyard of Bila-Haut from M. Chapoutier.
Wine has very deep concentration, with a very garnet color and shows signs of rim variation. Staining occurs medium to heavy, and has evidence of gas in my opinion.
It’s like a volatile acidity, yet has a moderate intensity with a devoting age assessment. It is coming to see earth character, but also cherry and black currant.
It’s a very off-dry wine, yet shows some signs of sweetness when you leave the bottle open for a while. In my opinion, the wine is not bitter at all, has Med+ tannin and same for acidity. It’s not entirely full bodied, perhaps of the ages and the decanting (not necessarily needed as the age range is between 1-3 years and the 2017 now, is a perfect companion. — 11 days ago
For $9 from K&L, this is exceptional. Presents a mineral-driven, steely nose, which transitions to the palate. Love the citrus fruits combining with delicate white flowers. Most memorable is the piercing minerality - mainly limestone. For the price, it’s unbeatable. Below $20 in the white wine class, no country touches France. — 4 days ago
Да. Свежий аромат, сочный, вишня, такая садовая, свежая, но при этом очень четкий но тонкий тон бочковых огурцов, и много специй, даже куркума, с нежными таннинами. высокая кислотность, но не вырви глаз, очень сбалансированное. Выпил бы бутылку один легко. И летом и зимой. — 11 days ago
Gift from rohl ( I think) — 22 days ago
Wow, really impressed. We opened this a couple nights ago with homemade French onion soup - it was beautiful, and paired very well. I’ve never had an aged white wine with such an amber, almost pink, color but such a youthful nose and flavor. Still has great acidity. It seems the short maceration time really contributed a special aspect for this one. — 4 days ago
Super complex and complicated. Light gold color with ample green tones. Nose has melon, apricot, and sugar. Wine has everything from lemon to grapefruit to peach/apricot to cantaloupe. Surprisingly low acidity. Just what I was hoping for and an excellent QPR for under £20! — a day ago
