Shindig

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC)

Richebourg Pinot Noir 1978

I contributed this bottle, which had a seepage problem earlier in its life leaving a ~5.5cm ullage. Decanted and left to aerate and hour before heading to the shindig. Amber tawny color, translucent. A Wow! Nose from the get go. Bing cherry, framboise raspberries, rhubarb, rose petals, sweet red cherries. Exotic nose leads to a luscious experience as the wine is tasted. Sois bois. The wine peacocks over several hours of enjoyment. Great juice. — 16 days ago

Domaine Robert Arnoux / Arnoux-Lachaux

Les Suchots Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1995

Reddish tawny color. Vibrant in the glass. Direct nose with notes of raspberries, rhubarb, asian spice and moist black soil. At first, more structure than fruit. But with 6+ hours of air a sweetness develops and softens the harsher notes, making this more voluptuous. Was singing loudly at the end of the shindig! — 2 years ago

Shindig Fizzi Pink Cabernet Franc Rosé

Shindig Fizzi Pink
With a nose of berry, lime, and a slight minerality, fizzi pink is a dry, effervescent sparkling wine with notes of cherry and raspberry. I love it.

Sancerre Pinot Noir Rosé 2010

What is there not to love? Textbook with some extra shindig through. One of the better warm-up wines we've had in a while. And at 12.5abv tough to beat. — 6 years ago

This is not the rose. This is SB. Delectable -- where is the edit function. Or the "you've got the wrong wine" function?
