light Purplish/garnet in the glass, nose of mushroom, forest floor and shoe leather. Light tannins, round in the mouth, black pepper and licorice, medium finish. Unassertive but with great balance and structure.

Light salmon in the glass, light fruit notes of strawberry and citrus. Fruit and stone on the palate. Bone dry, crisp finish. Great for a sunny afternoon on the terrace..

Pale salmon in the glass, stone fruit (nectarine) on the nose. Fruit a little shy on the palate, unremarkable acidity. Underdeveloped, too shy and retiring to recommend.

Pale salmon color hiding a wonderfully assertive and playful wine. notes of strawberry and lemon peel on the nose, lively citrus on the palate. Crisp minerality. Excellent balance of fruit and acid. Perfect for a summer afternoon in the hammock

Seriously good value for a big, complex, well structured wine. Dark ruby/purple in color, aroma of plum, black pepper and spice on the nose. Abundant black cherry with notes of licorice and leather on the palate. Long, soft, well balanced finish. Great wine for the price.

Rich dark rose/watermelon color in the glass. Stawberry and redcurrant on the nose, abundant fruit on the palate, crisp minerally finish. Good structure. Grenache, Clairette, Cinsault and Bourboulenc blend. Great choice for the non-rosé drinker

The wine has a light golden hue and honeysuckle on the nose. There are notes of tropical fruit and a touch of cantaloupe on the palate but it is flabby in the finish and devoid of the crisp minerality that you expect in a good sancerre. Simply put, this wine has no balance. bland and disappointing.

Deep ruby color and with slightly throttled nose of blackberry and cocoa. But seriously unbalanced on the tongue, abrasive tannins bullying the fruit into submission. Tart medium finish. Very disappointing
Rosé
2012 Moulin de Gassac Guilhem Rosé Vin de Pays de l'Hérault Grenache Blend, Grenache (view label images)

This salmon-colored country girl from the Herault has agreeable legs and a full aroma of strawberry and peach. Bring her to your lips and you'll find her Strawberry jammy on the palate, but somewhat restrained compared with some of the rosé beauties hailing from Southern France. However, there is some compensation in the long, lush and somewhat angular finish. She's a 40-40-20 GCS (Grenache Cinsault, Syrah) blend. 6 months in stainless steel has left her llively, fresh and good company for some light appetizers on a sunny afternoon.

The unctuous wine sports a green-gold hue with medium legs. Notes of goosberry and lemon on the nose and guava/yellow lentil on the palate. Medium to full bodied with a lingering finish and satiny texture. Luscious... and charming complement to a biryani...oh blimey

This wine captures the sensuality of Mediterranean France. Garnet/ruby with languorous legs. Aromas of cassis and coffee caress the nostrils. On the palate there is more cassis, cherry, black pepper and butterscotch. The body is Medium/Full, fleshy of texture with a long finish. Gina Lollabrigida in a glass...
