Tasting note: Chateau Leoville Poyferré, Saint-Julien, 2017

Comments = This wine offers a pronounced intensity on the nose and a pronounced intensity on the palate. It has a beautiful balance balance acidity-aromas but the tannins need to soften through additional bottle aging. It shows a great range of aromas and a long finish. It is maybe slightly below than their 2016 vintage but there is no doubt that this is a great wine.

Final Grade = A-

Tasting note: Chateau Leoville Poyferre, Saint-Julien, 2015

Comments = An outstanding wine with a perfect balance acidity-aromas. It has a pronounced nose and palate. Its tannins are in the process of being polished by time and are starting to be integrated to the wine. The palate is very enjoyable with a mix of ripe fruits completed with delicate spices and hints of mint (and Eucalyptus). The finish is complex and long with hints of spices and a very precise acidity.

Final Grade = A+

Tasting note: Champagne Rosé “Philippe Starck”, Brut Nature, Louis Roederer, 2015

Comments = I love this rosé Champagne, purity of fruit and aromas, precision of acidity and bubbles, aromatic complexity. We can only thank Louis Roederer, Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon and Philippe Starck for FINALLY offering us a Brut Nature Champagne rosé of this quality and precision. I can only recommend it, especially since it still has good aging potential.

Final Grade = A

Tasting note: Domaines Ott, Chateau Romassan, Rosé, 2022

Comments = I really like this great rosé from Bandol focused on finesse and elegance with characteristic notes of the dominant Mourvèdre grape, a slight solar side, a nice tension on the palate which complements the acidity of the wine. Many nuances in the mouth and a long and complex finish. A very beautiful rosé to enjoy convivial and sunny moments around Mediterranean cuisine

Final Grade = A-
