Vinegary smoky tapenade. Light but not much length on the palate.

Like this rendition which is richer than normally leaner versions. Goes well with food.

Not a big fan. It didn't evolve better over 2 years. I am not a big fan of the fruit profile which is not appealing to my taste - think more cheaper beaujolais. I really liked teh white orange wine from the producer though and the label is pretty nice.

Nice fruit and smooth. But nothing too special about it. Lacking some backbone.

Light, whole cluster, some animal notes nose. Great acidity giving a lift of the cherry notes with some spices. A bit short finish.

I liked the fact that it was not too citrusy but had some roundness. Went well with both oysters with red wine vinaigrette and duck rilletes : everything went well with this champagne!

Great acidity. Some citrus, and crunchiness, but not too much juice though. I would let it aside more. Very easy to drink.

More brambly and deeper red fruited tone that could be the lighter cuvee. Hints of smoke and herbs as well, reminding of the origin. Good. Wouldn't hold to it too much though.

96 is so good for Loire Cab Franc, and this is no exception.
Give me more!

Quite mineral with some saltiness. So good with 36 month Comte(as usual !)

Fruity tasty 2009 vintage - very primary still.

Surprisingly enough wood and chewy tannins. Much better the next day. Needs time to integrate better between the acidity, fruit and tannins.

Very uplifting for a 2009. I liked the balance a lot. Primary now, but not an issue to open.

Not super fan of the cuvee. Tasted more classic champagne and not really noteworthy.

Did I commit an infanticide ? Maybe but that tasted very good. Had with veal marsala saltimboca a la luppa. this pairing was a struggle for a while, and this is one of the best one. The tannins were good and soft and paired very well with the sage, onions and sauce. Made the wine very silky and good combination. Surprised I liked such a young Italian wine.

Although very good with Asian food - think thai curry - this was just OK with white asparagus done steamed and then sauteed with truffle butter.
It lacks some minerality and punch to make it a good pairing. OK it was.

Not as great as other vintages. Missing the special energy of this wine. Still good.

Really liked this champagne rose, with right amount of vinous and flavors. Beautiful.

On 10/13/2018, paired with uni pasta and black truffle, this was fantastic. There is a lot of minerality and some of the lemon added to the pasta goes went well with it. A bit more aged could have been perfect for the truffle but so hedonistic pairing I can't complain !

On 10/13/18, pairing with Beef tartare shiso leaves, quail egg with sesame oil and capers.
The shiso, herbs and sesame complimented well with the green aspect of this Rhys. Drank alongside the 2010, I preferred the 2011 which was more refined and had more lift.

Very French balance. Fruit still present and felt younger than expected for the vintage. Should be aged a bit more. Nice gaminess, acidity and tannins balance, with a good concentration. Rather serious than fun side of the côte rôtie.

Previous vintages of this wine were much darker. This is almost rose like. But don't mistake the color for simplicity. This is complex and very l'anglore like - with some darjeeling ( I think the kombucha like is also appropriate), dried roses, and persistence on the palate. Super good rendition.

Quite serious and coiled down at opening. Needed a day to open up. Evident quality here . More serious than fun.

Burgundian élevage which needs more time to integrate. Young and powerful, striking acidity, good structure. It will be nice to drink in another 5-6 years.

Great acidity and lifting aroma. Not as much tannins as the 2007 - at least from my memory. Lovely.

Nice yeasty chalky nose. Palate turns a bit flat and not as explosive fun as others in the D&R lineup. Fine but a bit too pricey if you compare with old world counterparts.

Fantastic. Needed some carafe time to show its best. 2h later it started singing and never looked back.

Soften up. Sage, nice herbal fruit. With lasagne, maybe veal Marsala could be good as well. A touch too much wood for my liking - it is integrated but gives a bit chocolate taste that is not necessary. Fruit is nice enough.

Quite sweet on a demi sec level. Some honey and marzipan as well as medicinal herbs. Didn't expect that ripeness and sweetness.

Strong acidity - more than I remember from other vintages. Second day didn't move much. Had to wait the third day to move in nice place to my taste, were some waxy slight honey element complimented the sharp fresh lemon and saline. Quite tight now, and not as pleasurable as the regular sur lie cuvée was. Material is evident and came more forward on day 3, so for my taste I'll wait at least couple years for next one.

Nice nose but the palate is very short and not much giving. Disappointing right now. Closed phase ?

Very ripey at opening, and not appealing. Way much better next day with lifting aromatics. Take time to let this breathe !

Loved it. 96 ripeness is fantastic for Loire cab franc, and this is another win - not that I had many but the other one being the 96 Baudry grezeaux.
Soft vibrant fruit, with stony chalky minerality. Beautiful. Every glass calling for the next one.

Light color, more spicy than mineral. Very good now. Was more herbal green / acidic on second day and was more attractive on first day.

Nice ! A lot more open than the Cote du Py 14 opened recently. Lush and sensual feminine wine. Opening arms right now. It was stellar with a clear pot-au-feu.
