Wow. This is genius. Stunning nose of rich honeyed apricots, marmalade, spice, cinnamon, cardamon, mango and guava. It’s at once tropical but has beguiling freshness. The palate is an uncanny freshness and is so clean and so pure it’s just staggering this is Roussanne. Amazing purity. Incredible balance. The stuff of dreams. This is unreal. Best non Christine bottling I’ve ever had from Berlioz. So fine and so delicate. Just a stunning wine.

100% Roussanne.

Nose...If I ever had a white that I could tell you was "oily" this is that wine. Caramelized honey, pear, guava and wet clay.

Palate is hazelnut butter, macerated pear, over-ripe apricot. F...this is an amazing bottle, I don't happen across Roussanne like this everyday, or like ever!

Банановая шкурка, абрикосовый нектар, зелёная груша, белый налив, жасмин, медоносы, зеленый чай, луговые травы. Свежо, фруктово-цветочно, с едва ощутимым сахаром и заметным для 12% алкоголем. Тонко, естественно и питко, с чрезвычайно легкой поступью, прямолинейно и не слишком комплексно, но с беззаботным шармом. Немного подводит загадочная, чуть выпирающая спиртуозность.

На второй день становится экзотичнее и пышнее.

Great restrained tropicality. Mineral. Good acidic balance.

A transportative wine. Honey and almonds on the nose. The palate’s fresh and mineral. But it has that alpine character that transports you to the mountains. Nothing else like it. Bought from Fass Selections. After an hour gets much more complex. This is great but yet very different. An anti ennui wine.
