Lovely zing off this rose, crisp, clean 100% Pinot Noir, lovely with the Cheese Platter in Whelehans.
Jancis Robinson wasn’t too keen on this – preferring their standard Sancerre – but I am. Not cheap but quality shines. John brought this to dinner.
A suggestion from Provence that Saignee produced Roses aren’t the real deal.
We chased the Aldi offering with this gem from Marks & Spencer.
Bright, nutty, citrus fruit zing. Delicious.
We offered this to the Kerins to celebrate Paul’s Birthday. An Aldi own label, part of the crop received at Lesley’s Birthday Party. I thought this was fast approaching its best before; a sweet, corky taste with good bubbles, peaky rusty around the edges.

This was the second bottle to follow the Laurent Perrier at Christmas Dinner where we were joined by Ross, Amy and Amber together with Ross’ parents, Lena and Paul, and his sister Vicki
I thought this to have more character, fruit and zest than the Laurent Perrier
Another pick from Lesley’s Birthday Crop.
A cursory Google suggests it came from O’Briens
Nice and packed a punch @ 14%. Reaffirmed my belief, however, that the new world has quite a way to catch-up on the old World with regard to Pinots. We enjoyed this in Fade Street, for a super family post-wedding Georgian lunch. Followed by a nightcap in No Name Bar.
