Re: What de Négoce wine are you drinking tonight?

Does anyone have feedback on Lot 198? Very little on CT. Was coming to ask the same thing. Searched the forums but didn’t find anything. @Gray G said he was “in on 198” when it was first offered so maybe he’s popped and tried one? very good, a big wine for the price for sure 14.9 ABV nose is comple...

Popped the 20' Rose out of the fridge and was advised by @Ron F r e e d to let this come up to room temp to enjoy. We drank this over about 6 hours. Very well made wine, I would not classify it as a typical rose. A little heat at first but the flavor won out over time. a bombastic wine for sure, he...

Re: What de Négoce wine are you drinking tonight?

We opened the Solano Chardonnay this evening by itself and with some grilled salmon. (OG N. 186) PnP. It was only bottled 6 weeks ago so I knew I was taking a risk opening it.
