The description: Clear, light with golden tints. A delicate fine mousee, with a fresh, liveliness and aromas of peach, apricot, and flowers. Discreet yet complex, a very original sparkling wine of Semillon. The opinion: Accurate. Also it’s very good, surprisingly good! — 8 days ago
The description: Pale pink color, with a nose of great finesse and delicacy and a nice minerality. The palate is tight, refreshing with notes of strawberry and a crisp structure.
The opinion: accurate and not a bad drop. I don’t think a good year for Rose, but this keeps alive the faith! — a month ago
Vibrant with great depth at this young age. I am off to buy some more to store. — a month ago
The description: The 2022 Pinque has classic strawberries and cream characters along with watermelon and a touch of Szechuan pepper. The 2022 vintage was warm and dry and correspondingly this wine is relatively low in acid making for a very smashable wine, although like all our wines there is plenty of subtle complexity to delight the taster. Enjoy! The opinion: in total agreement.

The description: The sweetly frivolous and fruity side of Central Otago Pinot Noir is bound up in this bottle of Stolen Kiss Rosé; once unleashed into your glass its candy-floss and crème-brûlée aromas shall sashay into a flirtatious toffee-apple and simmering strawberry palate smeared with cherry lip-gloss; most fun to drink chilled on sultry summer afternoons and evenings.
The opinion: Accurate and very good. Stolen Kiss is somewhat variable but 2022 and 2023 is very good. Summer afternoon with a well chilled bottle, can’t go wrong. — a month ago
The description: This is classic organically grown Provence rosé. So pale and delicate yet fruity it's a real crowd-pleaser. Floral notes coupled with that kind of rich stone fruit you only get from wines from this part of France. A summer staple.
The opinion: the 2020 was exceptional, this year not that good — a month ago
The description: A deep blackcurrant-red colour, with bright cherry highlights. A profusion of black fruit flavours and soft spices on the nose. A rich full-bodied palate, sustained by freshness and a certain mineral touch. A silky, velvety tannic finish to enhance the balance. The opinion: as per description beautiful.
A wine for early drinking but can be cellared for 2 to 3 years. — 2 months ago
The description: The Commandeurs Côtes de Provence is the flagship rosé from Domaine Peyrassol and the grapes are picked from the best sites. The grapes are harvested in the cool of the night to preserve the fresh fruity flavours of the wine. After a traditional fermentation in stainless steel vats the wine goes through an extended aging period and we’re gifted a wine of precision with delicate fruit and spice. The opinion: it’s very good, but the mineral undertone is a too strong and thus the wine lacks the balance and finesse you would expect of a wine of this pedigree. — a month ago
The description: Scents of pear and mellowing yellow apple dominates the nose and are followed by a note of hay and white flowers. The palate is clean and supple with intense flavors of stone fruit and some tropical fruit flavors as well. The wine finishes with notes of dried apricot, white flowers and wet stones. The opinion: yes very very good and in-line with description. — a month ago
The description: Perfectly representative of this stunning terroir, this Tavel 2022 is an iron hand in a velvet glove! Indeed, the palate is characterized by the intensity of the fruit, with nice citrus notes and very fine tannins. The finish is long and creamy. The opinion: Accurate and a little sweeter than you typical French rose! But definitely buy again. — 2 months ago
