Full on glistening bright gold in the glass... nose a touch shy (perhaps a bit too cold)...but intense initial attack on the palate of tart lemon and key lime. Pretty full bodied, definite oak, and real weight. Lively acidity and lots of length. Perhaps not my present style, but well made and impossible to ignore. — 2 months ago
Best bubbles I've had this year! Some nice buttery aromas. No overwhelming effervescence and beautifully balanced acidity. Great way to ring in the new decade with a decade old bottle. — 5 months ago
Big wine! Lots o berries n rich structure but far too young with a bit disparate flavours n a little aggressive tannins n acididi. Looking foreard to it in a few years! — a month ago

Mycket frisk och rivig Pinot. Aromatiskt härligt. Grön fräschör från stjälkhantering. Körsbär, lingonris, lakrits, kryddor, jord och mineral. Mer härligt vild än burgundiskt elegant, vilket jag uppskattar. — 3 months ago
ノンフィルターか澄んではいない外観。赤〜黒系果実と、オーク、瓶熟成まで第一〜第三アロマが数多く取れる。オークが強めだった。もう少し置いてもいいかもしれない。 — 5 months ago
This stuff is bloody excellent. Had with chicken with tallegio and breadcrumb crust with baby tomatoes. Perfect accompaniment. Well rounded , fresh but long and complex. A burgundy rival without question. Love it. Tempted to give higher score. — a month ago
Sho-nuf I like my chateauneuf! Wild, floral, but muscular and strong.
Usually, I try to pay attention during wine tastings, but honestly a lot of the time I am just imagining how well I would do in American Gladiators. Especially the early 90s version. (When I was a young and impressionable kid.)
I thought Malibu was an idiot and I knew I could take him out in the jousting competition, though I was certain Nitro would bash my head in with a pipe pretty quickly. Diamond... she scared me. The intense lipstick reminded me of some horrible creature of the night in search of blood. I preferred Lace. In fact, I really preferred Lace. (The first version: Marisa Pare. Not the later Lace played by Natalie Lennox Merritt.) I imagine the reason I have a penchant for wild tangled hair now is because of my infatuation with American Gladiator Lace when I was 4-7 years old. When I was younger, I would often imagine battling with Lace. As the events got more intense she would throw herself on top of me in frustration and we'd roll down the gladiator pyramid, making out in a heap of sexual energy and wild animalistic thrusting.
But I digress.
This wine smells like Lace. — 3 months ago
