Delicious and fun. Not very complex but it does have a nice mouthfeel and textural quality. Age hasn't hurt this wine at all. Still has nice acidity, stone fruit, and citrus flavors. At peak now, so drink up!
No detailed notes. A nice balance, with good but not overpowering fruit depth and a sense of minerality. A very enjoyable wine, and excellent pairing with potato, leek and pancetta soup. Terrific QPR and while this is a great "everyday", it can also have a place at more important occasions assuming a thoughtful food pairing. Very versatile.
Light color, like straw. Rubber, mango, and crushed rock on the nose. Sea shell, rocky minerality, green apple, and asparagus on the palate. Faint butteriness on the finish. Great conveyor of terroir and excellent QPR.
Tried this at a low room temperature, the acid was very pronounced. This is granny smith apples all the way. Upon chilling the acid reduced, the wine tightened up, and a minerality appeared. This is not a complex wine but the apple and mineral is wonderful with this skin ripened goat cheese. This is definitely one to open upon a return home and a glass of something to wake you up is required. I've had Sanceres at twice the price that impressed me less. A good wine that when I run out I will not miss overly much, but will welcome back should it appear again.
Exposure to Les Trois Chenes turned us on to the qualities of Domaine Ricard, so it was nice to sample another offering. This one is very young and fresh and vibrant, with a slightly sherbet-y nose, brimming with citrus grapefruit attack on the palate, texture provided by typical chalky minerality, clean and bright, rarely finding equivalents in the New World.
