A medium gold color with lively effervescence. A rush of tiny bubbles immediately. This smells simply delicious after a bit of time and air. Baked apples and fresh brioche up front with a nice of touch of spice. Yellow fruits are prevalent here along with moist rocks and sea air. There’s this honey element that is truly excellent which tops it all off.
I know, I know it’s too young. You can’t open it yet, it’d be a crime. But sometimes you just have to. And it’s so good. So focused, so fresh, so substantial. A beautiful woman wearing a sexy evening gown. Racy acidity with a superb streak of minerality. This is indeed young and not what it will be in the future but the bones are obviously very good.
Thrilling on the tongue with a dash of electricity. Vivacious and energetic, it’s more than a bit luxurious and resplendent. The palate follows the nose closely but with more pronounced fruits and dried herbs. A beautiful, beautiful wine and one I can’t wait to taste years down the road. — a month ago

Absolute stunner of a blend. Intense creamy, caramely nose. Nice bite to it on the front and a smooth lingering finish. Can taste the Sherry cask and a nice touch of smoke. Love it. Keeps getting better and better the longer I sip it. — a year ago
We really enjoy the relatively high dosage used by this producer, but a tartness is present which acts as a counter-balance.
Nose presents roasted nuts and toast. Palate is mineral-driven and energetic. Notes of meyer lemon and biscotti compete with the urgency of the profile of the wine - and this is day 2. — a year ago
Waiting a few years to taste this and was totally impressive. Driven by a throttling verve of energetic fruit, sharp acidity and bready texture. Showcases a grower style of green apple, lemon, almonds, brioche and emerging tertiary toffee and honey liquer. Well, we’ll done — 6 months ago
Watermelon and wet stone nose it just SMELLS thirst-quenching. All that on the palate plus raspberries and a hint of finder lime and pink peppercorn—which is to say floral without being floral. And something sappy and makes me think of the color ultramarine. It is also salmon pink taffeta in texture and feel.
Trinquevedel has historically a favorite of mine—I feel Iike this vintage is a bit more coy than others. A little less generous but give the glass time and it gives up pithy gems. Whether open upfront or mysterious but complex it always keeps me coming back. — 2 years ago
