One of the lightest rosés I think I've ever tried. That was a plus today - it hit the spot when drunk after spending a hot afternoon working in the yard and pulling up ivy. Color was light and flavors light. Crisp and refreshing. Under $5 a bottle (not including airfare to bring it to the states). I don't think I'll ever find rosés in the US that match the QPR of the ones we had from Nicolas.

These are not vintage dated but I purchased this bottle in Dec 1999. Lost in the cellar until tonight. Plastic cork (which doesn't exclude oxygen as well as a natural cork). Wine was quite brown, a little short of the brown you see with a desert sherry. Muted nose. Palate was very enjoyable with caramel and honey. No off flavors. I thought it was similar to a Pedro Ximénez just a little lighter.

Dark color, tobacco, leather on the nose. Palate was rich with just a hint of tannin among the mature fruit flavors. Really enjoyable. Drinking fine now and I suspect will hold up for quite some time to come. Light sediment. Best red of the year (so far)

Still enjoyable. Dark, black fruits flavors, medium density, some wood and dirt flavors on the palate. Softened up overnight and enjoyable with more fruit and a soft mouthfeel.

Black/floral nose. Palate is a thin, some darkness. Should probably let these sit a few months and re-try

A good 87 - Transparent slight purple twinged color, pomegranate on the nose, brisk acidity but decent fruit underneath. Drank from a half bottle which was just right for a work night.

I, on the other hand, am finding this very enjoyable. Dark red color, trufflely, gamey nose. I'm getting a nice Bordeaux palate of black fruit, integrated tannin and acidity that seems balanced to the wine's density. Finish is medium length. Purchased on release and cellared until today.

Forgot this one in the cellar. Normacorc closure. Expecting an oxidixed, brown mess, but instead got a meaty, gamey smooth and enjoyable mature wine. Poured half of the bottle up into a split and sealed with a screw cap. Just as enjoyable the second night although faded a bit. Score is based on the first night. Not sure if the organic grapes, the older vines or the blend is the factor that played the biggest role in keeping this wine alive. I payed less than 10 for this. Quite a deal

PnP. Medium floor, not much nose, some sourer-ness, palate is Bordeaux with red fruit, acidity and a short finish. I don't think this has anywhere to go, it is enjoyable as a lighter claret now, drink up

Pale pink with slight orange tinge. Strawberry nose, light palate. Hard to be critical of such an inexpensive wine. Drinks well and goes down easy. No off flavors or qualities.
