Spritzy and lifted with leathery, meaty Brett and cranberry tartness; better than average depth and length for the category

A little spritzy at first but that blew off and the nose was glorious

Can't tell if I love it or hate it. Stop being fizzy after three days. But has grown and developed with every sip. Sans souffre? Mais oui!

Starts out with some funk (the good kind) then after a moment to breathe it really mellows out into a wonderfully rounded wine.

Super funky as expected, close to fizzy soda pop on first sip then gets real serious. The 2015 gets into meaty Cote Rotie territory when it opens up. Highly recommended for off the beaten track.

A great weekday wine. Nothing fussy, but tons of juice with good enough structure to stand up again spicy fare.

Very funky. Effervescent at the start. Still a great wine but out there.
