Community Tasting Notes 10

    March 11, 2015 - Drank this with a close colleague over dinner at Rokeby and Wimbly Lu Chocolates tonight.

    Colour is dark yellow turning light brown. Notes of fresh apple juice on the nose, with a touch of pears and raisins.

    On the palate this wine carries some weight with restrained sugar giving a refreshing sensation on the palate.

    Nice wine with balanced sweetness.

    December 13, 2014 - Drank a bottle last night with friends over some simple dishes at home.

    Yellow in colour, with a rich and fragrant nose. On the palate there are notes of pear and peach. The sweetness level is moderate and the sugar level is subdued.

    November 24, 2012 - 4th Saturday Group brown bagger (Mike & Cyndi's): Light color. Aromas of minerals, orange blossom honey, and tropical fruit. Flavors of apricot and peach, with a bit of a tinny, metallic note on the finish.

    December 31, 2011 - Actually a 'fun' and rather interesting wine made from 100 percent Botrytised Roussanne... The nose displays a vivid array of melted beeswax or honey combined with subtle tones of lychée, tangerine and peach. The palate is full and lush with a finish lasting some 40 seconds. Overall impression is very positive, this is a fun and very nice effort. Age seems to do this effort justice. It is far more complex tonight compared to a couple of years ago.

    October 9, 2011 - Slightly acidic and not very well balanced. With the right sweetness around it - paired with dessert, for example - not too bad.

    (Le Vol Des Anges) COLOR-medium amber/golden; NOSE-tons of honey; smoked apricots; a little peach fuzz; TASTE-I like this -- it's not too sticky; solid balance; a lot of pears & quince on the back-end; there's a sauterne-like feel for me; GV-??
