/rench, Spanish and Lebanese! 03/8/19
Do Ferreira Albarino. Pale yellow color. Bright and tart yellow citrus. Big expansive white with a little more body than most Albarinos.
Massaya Blanc. A Lebanese wine made from a primary grape that is unique to Lebanon, with a little chardonnay and sauvignon blanc blended in. Big fruity palate. Maybe pear on the palate?
Pissares Macabeu. Mineral nose and palate. Sweeter fruit than you usually taste in a Macabeu. Not as much brine as some but chewy with minerality.
Massaya Rose . Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet. Taste and aroma profile are typical of a Provencal rose.
Pissares Priorat (60% Garnaxta/40% Samso). Unoaked, dark ruby color, black plum and cherry fruit on the palate. Medium long finish.
Massaya Rouge. GSM Blend from Lebanon. Juicy with spicy tannins. Delicious.
Chateau Canadel Bandol Rouge. Medium dark garnet color, spicy nose, some red fruit but not as rich as other Bandol Rouge I’ve had recently.
Gros du Nore Bandol Rouge. Dark, deep ruby, red fruit on the nose and palate. Tannins are structural and vibrant but more polished than the Canadel. Very good exemplar from Bandol.
