Seriously good QPR here. Garagiste. Stuffed to the gills and action packed with black fruit abundant. Need to open the rest of the bottle and let breathe/open to see how we are at this stage of the game. No 'rating' yet.

This wine keeps getting better the longer the NV Cuvee sits in bottle. If you can swing a case of this, grab it. We had it with guilty pleasure fried calamari. So great. Just love the lightness balanced with the rich strawberry fruit.

I just like mine on the older side. They get creamy, more complete on the palate. I think this will easily go 5 years in the cellar if properly stored.

That would be magic right about now. I couldn't keep my own paws off my own stash, and now I need another 12er when I can find one on deal. Cheers.

All full throttle Riesling LH all the way. In a great spot. On day 2 even more layered with honeyed gold apricot. Sonnaofagun. I should have bought more. Delicious!
