Translucent, a hint of age.
A fruity nose, blackberries and dark plums, quite complex, inviting.
Fruity attack, strong acidity, tannins under control, sweetness in the mid palate, quite long.

Wine Education Service - The Northern Rhône (Imperial College): Age, opaque.
Disappointing nose.
A long way short of expectation.

    4/12/16, 8:23 AM - I was surprised. I've previously enjoyed brine et blonde - rated it 92/93 points. It must have been a rogue bottle but there was no TCI . It was just flabby and dried out.

White - Sparkling
2013 Elio Perrone Moscato d'Asti
6/12/2014 - tendring Likes this wine:
88 points
Wine Education Service - Italy - Piemonte: Gold-silver with good bubbles.
A grapey nose with liquorice notes.
Grapey and refreshing taste.

    6/12/15, 2:43 AM - This is a wine for enjoying in its youth, so drink within a year or so.

Red
2009 Celler Vall Llach Priorat IDUS Grenache Blend, Grenache
9/12/2014 - tendring Likes this wine:
92 points
A delightful bouquet of dried and fresh fruit.
Very rich fruity attack, quite tannic, full, peppery, very long.
  • tendring commented:

    9/30/14, 1:17 PM - This wine is drinking pretty well now. The tannins will soften in the next five years and the wine will age beautifully and will be drinking well in 20 years.

Red
2002 Château Batailley Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend
12/25/2013 - tendring Likes this wine:
90 points
Beginning to show a little age
Some development aromas mingled with baked fruit.
Fruity attack, refreshing, good acidity with tannins under control, great length.
  • tendring commented:

    1/6/14, 2:04 AM - To expand on my note:
    This wine is still youthful in its look, smell and taste. I have 7 bottles left and I'm not hurrying to finish them off. I expect to enjoy them during the next 4 years.
