    July 15, 2017 - Le Cigar Blanc-aromatic but overpriced - grenache blend

  • Tony Molester Does not like this wine:

    January 22, 2016 - Stelvin.

    High acidity nose, oak, faint orchard fruit.
    Palate follows through, with lots of oak and acidity, making the flavours seem unbalanced and lacking fruit.
    Grenache blanc and roussanne dominated blend.
    Mediocre.
    14.5% abv.

    July 4, 2014 - Powerful nose of honeydew melon, candle wax, and alcohol. Promising, but it's fading, with a little heat, a touch of tangerine and not much else on the palate. Bet it was drinking well a couple years ago, but it's pretty empty now.

    November 29, 2013 - Really delicious on thanksgiving...nice balance.

    July 3, 2013 - Quite intense and complex nose, with tropical fruit, spice, some oily and iodine tones. Full, very mineral, the acidity is rather low, but nonetheless the wine feels surprisingly well balanced, solid and structured. Very long. Very fruity finish, complex, citrus, mineral, tropical. This seemed to me more like a white Rhone rather than a New World, perhaps that's why I actually rather liked it.
