Tasting Notes

Without question the most wacked-out gorgeous weirdo-wine in this offering. The base wine ferments in used barrique and ages six months before tirage. It spends three-plus years on the lees and emerges as a serious wine that tastes for all the world like a Vilmart Cuvée Rubis, without quite the elegance and polish of the Champagne. Hibiscus and rhubarb jelly, echoes of wood, a finishing kiss of rosewater. Defeat even the most cocky blind taster! Amaze your somm pals! Put something on your list that no one else has, or even dreamed of! And finally, serve a three-eyed alien wine that’s not only without flaws: it also tastes good! As the wine is disgorged as-needed every few months, this final contingent has had really long lees time— four-plus years. We bought all the rest of it; the wine is indelible and amazing. — Terry Theise
