MAGNUM! This is an unique blend of all the permitted grapes in Chateauneuf (red and white), named after Rudi’s grandfather, that plays well above its humble Vin de Pays du Gard, complex, rich, structured, needs 5+ more years, great wine!!
(Disclosure — Rudi is a friend through my brother, who imports his wines, but the front label shows the 12th Century chateau on the Rhône across from Chateauneuf, just south of the Lirac appellation!!) — 11 days ago
The first aged bottle of Raveneau from my cellar that has ever showed a clearly oxidized light orange color, still alive, with solid acidity, we’ll see if it improves with aging (as these older Raveneau seem to consistently do), but right now this is just good/very good. — 16 days ago
