Really lovely aromatics, funky, fresh, and a bit green. The palate is entirely alpine, almost crunchy red fruits, with cedar, pine, and menthol. Excellent restraint with the fruit concentration. Great balance. — 17 days ago
Manni is THE advocate for Kerner - an under the radar variety that I’d describe as Riesling with a figure. His clocks in at 13.5%, so you’d expect some richness but it comes out a clean translucent silvery green skin. It looks mute but sings. Grapefruit and lychee and white flowers and white pepper too. — a day ago
Delicious. Dark purple color, aromas of plum, toast, mashed bramble berry. Intense, deep and still polished/softish tannin. Feels like there could be Merlot here. Good w homemade Bolognese. — a day ago
I should have known, but wow I'm really in love with sparkling Nebbiolo (Spanna) rosé!
Prior notes still apply:
Nose has cut yellow & red cherry, washed raspberries, freshly baked white bread, (light) white pepper and moist chalk.
Palate has chalky cherry, raspberry juice, medium acid and crusty bread on the very long finish. — 16 days ago
2017 Vuillermin is dense, with layers of cherry, red fruits, and a great backbone. This is crazy good, affordable, and 100% terroir specific. Outstanding, memorable, and iconic. — 23 days ago
Lovely waxy texture. Right floral nose. Fruity, saline, and good grippe. — 9 days ago
Super interesting d’Abruzzo. Green peppercorn, sage, and minerals. Medium body and lovely finish. — 3 days ago
