Deep, brambly, dark berry fruit on the nose, dark flowers, blueberry, pine resin, alpine flowers and so much more. Awesome alpine nose. Amazing tangy and juicy blackberry fruit. Rustic tannins but somewhat refined. Delicious. So juicy and alive. Terrific.

This was a surprise. Good for a cocktail or with food (like you would pair with Chenin). — a month ago
Nose is stunning. Brambly alpine red fruits, mashed flowers and fresh cut grass. Loads of herbs as well. Fruit is gorgeous, clear and focused. Palate is juicy, clear and fresh. Lacks a tiny bit of stuffing but also needed 24 hours to become civilized. Lovely wine. — a month ago

This actually ended up being a really interesting Thanksgiving wine. 40% Gamay, 40% Chardonnay, and 20% Mondeuse. It ends the white or red question with a “How about both?” Light, high acid. Citrus, cranberry. Simple, but highly drinkable. Allows the food and company to take center stage. — 3 months ago
