Good with sushi or lighter Thai dishes. Citrus forward, but herbal, bitter and a little boozy. (15% abv) Interesting texture. Others are saying waxy but I get oily. Not a “clean” wine, but certainly unique. New grape for me. — 11 days ago
Ok. You know you have guys who like “big reds”? Well this is a big white. Hard hitting, would stand up to any fucker that gives it attitude. — 2 months ago
Demi-sec, baked pear, stewed apricot, canned pineapple, prune, honey, ginger candy, musk, quince, minerality, and dried herbs. 50g/L RS. Round mouthfeel. Medium+ finish. — 4 months ago
Opens with confectioner’s sugar on the nose. The fat kid in me loves it. Pears and wildflowers and acid for days, minerals. Beeswax. Then when it opens it tastes like you’ve sliced into the juiciest grapefruit and are eating it whole with a little honey. Good stuff. Like spatlese. — 2 months ago

Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.
Nose has oxidized yellow apple, sweet pineapple, yellow apple flesh and faint oak influence.
Palate has pineapple, yellow melon, dried lemon peel, ripe papaya, naval orange (light) with light, sweet oak on the long finish.
Very surprised at this bottle, after having the lesser tier bottling (2007) on several occasions, I expected this to be highly oxidized and only pleasurable to anyone enjoying that particular style of Romorantin. This bottle was lively and fresh, still many years to go, future bottles can be 2022+ with little concern, when in proper storage. — 5 months ago
