Simple, stiff small berry fruit that screams of summer. — 2 years ago
Mmmmmm. Crisp, light and refreshing. Lots of bubbles and soft flavour. — 2 years ago
If you don’t want to think about this wine, no problem, you’ll have fun. If you do there’s a lot to cogitate on. The Animaniacs of wine. It has complexity (intriguing watermelon/river stone/candied watermelon/underripe strawberry/strawberry leaf) but also is just so pleasant in a way that I think: oh a non-wine snob would adore this too. Bubs are plush albeit don’t last so long as I might yearn for but then is that what I got for pouring into a syrah glass? You tell me Riedel lovers. — 2 years ago
The NV Bollinger Rose Champagne is comprised of 62% Pinot Noir, 24% Chardonnay with 14% Pinot Meunier, which was almost entirely sourced from a combination of premier and grand cru vineyards. Right away the mouthfeel really entices, as this shows wonderful verge and tension once on the attack. Layers of sour red fruits parade with shades of kumquat zest, wild mushroom and peat moss tones on the palate. The length here is excellent as this great new NV Rose will drink nicely over the next decade. Drink 2020-2028- 91 — 2 years ago
Last night I opened the 2017 Bisol Valdobbiadene Crede Prosecco Superiore Brut. A blend of 85% Glera, 10% Pinot Bianco and 5% Verdiso (Estate Grown).
On the nose there is nice citrus tones with lemon, green apples, pear, honey and good minerality.
On the palate is the same citrus notes, lemon, green apples, pear and minerality.
This sparkling wine is medium bodied that has fine long lasting bubbles with a creamy dry mouthfeel and medium + acidity that move smoothly into a long citrusy mineral finish. Have a great weekend with continued health and please stay safe. Nostrovia! 🍾🍾🍾🍾 — 2 years ago
I might not know it was rosé if blind tasted and I might not mind. But it DOES have that berry thing. Barely but just enough. It is cherry-berry it is mineral it is just fun. And white peaches and salt. And thyme. Hmm. It’s someone to hang out with when you need a friend also when that friend needs to...be food friendly and if your friends don’t like food I’d be concerned. — 2 years ago
