Good at 55 degrees, but even better at 40! Nose of strawberries, brie, walnut, sourdough bread. Enters with small bubbles, crisp, acidity in check. Crisp red apple, strawberries, hint of young raspberry. Finishes with more rounded edges and creamier notes -- strawberry sorbet! I would have never guessed that this was an 06 Vintage Rose. I think this one has a whole LOT of life left in it and will keep all the other bottles in the back! Went insanely well with a pastrami sandwich with coleslaw and bacon! — 3 days ago
Hibiscus and pink lemonade on the nose. Super intense flavors upfront, sour watermelon, peachy. There’s a hint of floral honey in there, but it’s mostly nice and tart. — 3 days ago
After being gone for 23 days, it was a race to get all the work done to open up our backyard or as we call it, the D&S Lounge.
5 full days of; planting, power-washing the house & patio, cleaning furniture, setting up 60 candles & torches and the endless odds and ends. It’s all finally done.
It’s the best room in the house!
It’s opening weekend and looking forward to a long summer and fall weekend nights in our own slice of heaven!
This tastes so good tonight. Showing more tangerine and blood orange tonight. I am in my version of the “Nexus”, Star Trek reference.
Cheers to everyone doing what they enjoy doing with their weekends and opening a good bottles with good friends and or family! 🥂🍾🍷 — 17 days ago
This 6 year old vintage champagne Rosé, is salmon in color. Very fleshy and fruity with a nice finish.
Dry on the palate with expressive notes of raspberries, strawberries, green apples, yeast, bread, citrus limes and minerals.
Very enjoyable by itself or with food.
12% alcohol by volume.

Is it Friday again? Yeah, I think it’s Friday. 🍾🥂
Bought this at Costco for under $40. Good at regular price, better at under $40.
The nose is showing more blood orange than memory recalls currently. Orange, tangerine, kirsch, rhubarb, strawberries and plenty of watermelon. Nice medium chalkiness, volcanic minerals and shells. Baguette crust, zesty cola and almost liqueur notes with red & pink roses.
The palate is rich and flows nicely. There is elegance and beauty here. The fruits are a little candied...roll up like. Blood orange. orange, tangerine, kirsch, rhubarb, raspberries, strawberries and plenty of watermelon. Nice medium, grainy chalkiness, volcanic minerals and shells. Baguette crust, zesty cola and almost liqueur notes with red & pink roses. The acidy is perfect. The finish is; long, well balanced with elegance and polish for days.
Pairs well with, Maxwell’s song, 🎶 Each Hour, Each Second, Each Minute, Each Day. 🎶
Photos of; the House of Drappier, cellar shots and their extremely chalky caves.

Had this a while ago, new batch, some lots underwent malolactic conversion enhancing flavor & weight. 40/40/20 blend, Pinot Meunier-20%. Founded in 1776, Reims France, rare family owned company, still managed by Roederer family. In 1833, Louis Roederer inherited company his uncle & renamed company under his namesake. Fresh fruit aromas, nice mousse, rapid bubbles, citrus & toasty apple flavors, crisp & refreshing, lingering ending with lemon, smoke & yeasty mineral notes. Nice value! — 20 days ago
