Bonny Doon Vin Gris De Cigare 2019
In appearance, almost Cate Blanchettish in its pale elegance, a beautiful subtle salmon color (the wine, not Cate). On the nose, subtle suggestions of rose hips, linden flower, blackcurrant as well as a slightly toastiness (methinks perhapsdue to the extended bâtonnage and lees contact). On the palate, wonderful bracing natural acidity, good weight, and comforting viscosity. Some discreet floral and fruitysuggestions, (mostly ribes with background black-cherry notes). Let us presently offer a simple prayer: While virtually all of the ’18 vintage Vin Gris will be consumed within a year of purchase, may there be a few smart cookies who put the wine aside for several years to see it reach its full potential (and will be enormously well rewarded for doing so).
