Maison Anselmet

Vallée d'Aoste Torrette Superieur Red Blend 2012

This has a pop to it. Seemed like a cross between Pinot and Zin. Completely vibrant. Big flavor of red and black fruit. High acidity and tannins in pine. Lovely wine — 6 days ago

Les Crêtes

Sommer Valle d'Aosta Nebbiolo 2016

Ruby with aromas of fresh crushed red berry fruits, floral and slight spicy notes. On the palate black cherry and blackberry flavors, well balanced with acidity and fine soft tannins. The finish is long, ending with fruit, cedar and mocha notes. Nice, will age well. — a month ago

9.5

Such a freak show. Just an insane wine. I’ll be in an asylum after a glass. The nose is like the best bath/body works you’ve ever smelled in your life. Tangerine blossoms. Tropical but not blowsy. Everything is mineral here. Even the tropical fruit. Citrus jelly and mint julep! White tea. This stuff is crazy. Hi end bubble bath now. Like “Mediterranean” flavor. If such a thing exists. (I googled it. It does). Palate is like a white hermitage. As good if not better than the 14. Excruciatingly awesome minerality, and dry, dry dry. Licking plywood dry. But long. But trust me it’s great plywood and you want the finish to be thing long as there’s really good citrus. Long. Just a superb showing. This has more to yield. It’s tannic as well. It’s the craziest Fiano ever. The harmony, finesse and white hermitage/white burg 1er cru quality push this to a 9.5. This is elite. Might get a 9.6 just for how to original this wine is. I’ll see how it opens. — 20 days ago
