  • 2014 Domaine de la Mordorée Tavel Rosé Cuvée de la Reine des Bois

    A pale strawberry with a distinctly orange hue, this wine is just lovely to look at, and the nose is spectacular: rose water, orange juice, white grape juice, cherry bonbons. But surprisingly firm on the palate, when you feared a flabby tuti-fruiti kind of wine: eyes closed you might think this was a high-end rhone white, albeit a bit sweet (the significant acidity helps keep that sweetness in check, but this is not a dry wine). Really fascinating. Perfect for summer picnics.

  • 2013 Château Simone Palette Rosé

    Quite a good rose, and in fact with your eyes closed you might easily guess that it was dry, slightly fruity white wine. On the other hand, the wine is striking for its bright pink, nearly red color. Tight on opening; benefitted from an hour of air. Somewhat tart, citrus aromas and flavors, a bit of sea-salt on the nose. Good mineral driven finish.

  • 2006 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage

    A great wine, the 2006 Chave is deep purple with a black core. The nose is vivid and complex, with seemingly contradictory aromas: ripe strawberries, which I associate with a lighter wine, but also musk, leather, toffee, bacon fat. Powerful and intense, with that ripe fruit, but cradled in soft, dense tannins and lifted by serious acidity, like a burgundy. Sipping this, I was somehow reminded of stewed rhubarb (in a positive way). Endless finish... A great wine, just reaching early maturity.
