@Bob McDonald - Here you go. 56% Grenache, 29% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre. Aromatics show the red berry Grenache side of this with lots of cracked pepper & structure on the palate. The Fall’s debut album is a raw, garage masterpiece that sounds like it came out last week rather than 40 years ago. — 4 days ago
Good berry aromas with deep ruby/black colour. This is a nice smooth wine with a background of berries and cherries and a very subtle vanilla and pepper hint.
All round a good bottle that is happy on its own or with a chow mein stir-fry.

First nice organic wine I’ve had. Inexpensive. Went well with an eggplant and red bell pepper pizza. Extremely berry tasting, powerful fresh and new flavor. Deep red color. — 3 days ago
I bought nearly a case of this years ago. I’m guessing 5 plus years ago. I think I paid somewhere $16.99 - $19.99 a bottle and its proven to be a very good QPR steal. Sadly, my last bottle.
I found it in a box encased in styrofoam. It has been on the side floor of my garage at least that long. This Cremant was even better than I remember it despite its poor storage. I was expecting far less and was really only curious to see if it was still good. I will say it doesn’t get hot on the California Coast often but, I am surprised by how well its held up and even improved slightly.
This bottling represents to me how good of Cremant/Sparkling wine can be made in Burgundy and in the hands of a good producer. The climate and soils are not all that different than Champagne.
This Bourgogne Cremant was lively in the mouth. Good acidity. The body showed a lot of mousse. Bright lemon, lime, grapefruit, green apple, its taken on just some very light honey notes, beautiful, soft chalkiness with spring flowers. The finish was rich, delicious and lingered on the palate for minutes. Great with dessert and sipper to close out the night.

Blend: Grenache, Cinsault, Pinot Noir. This lightly frothy, salmon hued, sparkling rosé smells of peaches, strawberries and flowers. The palate falls in line with a sense of wild cherry cough drops sprinkled into the mix. It's fun and it's refreshing, as well as being a little more complex than I anticipated. — 6 days ago
Friday night, finally! It's been a long week, so I'll relax with one of our favorite Champagne's. We visited Caillez-Lemaire in May of 2018, greatly enjoying their hospitality and tasting through the lineup. The Eclats Brut is our favorite, great value for delivered enjoyment at ~$35.
Nose is toasty brioche and a minerally quince jam. Ultra clean, creamy palate reflecting the same notes.

This is a very nice Champagne.
Showing lots of yeast, bread, limes, lemons, green apples, citrus, nuts, minerals and sea salt.
Medium plus in body with racing acidity and medium plus sized bubbles.
Nice length on the finish.
This was very enjoyable before dinner, compliments of Wine Bar George.
Well balanced with nice complexity, and without a bitter finish, which I always appreciate.
100% Chardonnay grapes.
This Non-Vintage Champagne is going to be so much better in 5 to 10 years.
12% alcohol by volume.
$70. — 18 days ago
This is the perfect wine to sit on the back porch with in the spring. It is a little sweet to my taste but not overly sweet. I would love to try and make this a frozen rose with strawberries — a day ago
The latest release of the Grand Siècle from Laurent Perrier is a truly spectacular Champagne. Disgorged in October 2017 the wine is a blend of the top wines made from 2002, 2004 and 2006. The bouquet is simply intoxicating with amazing range, from honeydew lemon to citrus rind, brioche and Japanese pear. On the palate, this shows an excellent combination of viscosity and tension. Apricot, Challah bread, marzipan and kumquat zest flavors all marvelously combine togehter. While this is a marvelous Champagne that is built to age, it is simply impossible to resist right now.
