    March 12, 2014 - Very similar to the previous bottles. Fresh nose with red fruits (cranberry and cherry), rose petals and celery roots. Needs a little breathing time to gain weight on the palate but as always a very nice, light pineau d'aunis with grippy tannins on the finish.

    November 30, 2013 - Nice fresh wine. Bright red cherry, rose petals, leather and a hint of vegie. Cassis lurking in the background. Beautiful soft texture. A light tartness lifts the finish with tannins keeping the wine together.
    Such an easy wine to drink with a great sense of place.

    June 21, 2013 - Something had to have gone wrong here. Carbonation is almost Champagne-level and the wine is cloudy and smells like chewing gum stuck to your shoe. I could not drink this.
