Les Rouliers Vin de France Chenin Blanc 2015

A Chenin unicorn that flys off any wine list it finds itself on. In this case, 86d out of only 6 bottles received by Per Se. The nose is what is most captivating. So unique. It’s a bit less reductive and perhaps more exotic than the Noels de Montbenault of the same vintage. It’s layered with flavors of ginger, Leflaive-like sesame, dried apricots, sour apple and salted hazelnuts. There is good richness and a wild texture that’s balanced by fine acidity. A delicious Chenin that I wish there was more of! — 7 days ago

Les Noëls de Montbenault Anjou Chenin Blanc 2015

The unicorn Richard Leroy that just can’t seem to survive any length of time on American wine lists and to no surprise 86d on this occasion. It’s quite reductive begging for a long decant. It’s deep and precise and with zippy acidity showing fiji apple, lanolin and a touch of orange zest. Finishes with great length and tension. The fuss is justified. Great stuff.  — 3 months ago

Spätburgunder Rosé 2017

A unicorn 🦄. The 2017 E&M’s Pinot’s where hard to try when young - all of them. And very hard to read. I thought the year was in question. Well this is changing this Rose is incredible now 3 years in the bottle. Bubblegum, herbs, earth and dirt on the nose. Fantastic fruit - strawberry guavas? Hint strawberry, lime, nice acidity. Lots of body. Begs for a Salmon dish which would go so well with the color. Drink now. Addictive. — 19 days ago

Holy cow! I am sipping the 2017 Rosé and it is so good. I had it last year and it seemed a bit tart and kind of gamey/funky in the finish, but today: so crisp, bright but not tart, nice mouth and great mouth with rose lavender and a hint of grapefruit and strawberry. Wow! Thank you! I’m having it with Mediterranean falafel, grilled chicken, and steak Shawarma with saffron rice and some hummus, baba ganoushand toasted pita and salad so yummy!

Emmaline Ann Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Clean, pure, soft... butterfly and unicorn whispers. Needed a few hours to open. In fact I thought it was best the next day (and last glass on the third ). Nose is beautiful. Palate well balanced and smooth. — 3 months ago

Leslie's Blend Estate Red Blend 2016

A biker that could be a ballerina. Total intimidating beast at this point but with some taming or time this could be a unicorn wine. — 3 months ago
