Honey, lemon, green apple and white flowers on the nose. The palate is very well balanced with a big acid backbone, lemony touches on the sides, some green apple too. A nice grip but a soft touch all around. Long finish with apple and honey. Also @Marine Cerbelle 's wedding wine. It was served along scallops with leek in a coconut, coriander sauce. Such a treat! — 5 days ago
I don’t care what anyone says, this vintage at least, they mislabeled Chenin Blanc as Sauvignon. I’ve had it about 10 times and always come to the same conclusion. That said, it is great and I will will really miss this wine🙁 1 more btl — 5 hours ago
Rose’s can be hard to pinpoint but Petite Mairie’s is unmistakenly Loire Cab Franc and that’s precisely what I love about this wine. If you like the stripped down vastly undervalued Loire red wines from greats like Guibertau, Baudry, Thierry Germain, Catherine and Pierre Breton, and so on, you’ll similarly appreciate this wine.
It has that pure herbal vegetal frame - artichoke, asparagus, and sage surrounding wet gravel and light berries. The flavors include fresh tilled soil , green bell pepper, and roasted red pepper. Really terrific from the Rosenthal portfolio. — 10 days ago
Crystalline and mineral. Just a touch of that Loire blood, beet and green pepper thing with a moderate bit of cherry fruit that could be a bit riper and more prominent. With this particular bottle, I don’t get anything more complex from the FdP. Ample acidity and dusty tannins. Probably has room to age, but whether it will reward it remains to be seen. — 7 days ago
Neuro reunion 10/12/18. Not a crowd favorite but I find it interesting. Orange in color and acidic and oxidized though not overly so and chewy complex profile on palate with tinge of over ripe citrus on finish. — 6 days ago
