Le Frappé NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Its pale, elegant colour leads into a pleasant bouquet of citrus read more...fruit, particularly grapefruit and orange zest. I t is clear, translucent and brilliant, with golden highlights. The foam is fleeting and white with fine, regular bubbles. Nose: A good mineral scent with citrus fruits and lime and subtle tones of lilac and mimosa. Taste: After a frank, lively initial impact full of freshness, the palate ends with a long finish of yellow fruits. Nice acidity without a trace of aggressiveness. The bubbles are invigorating and airy. Citrus fruits can be discerned one again.

Philippe Raoux, a winegrower and trader in the Bordeaux area, is the latest in line in a family that over 4 generations has made a significant contribution to the way the current wine world is fashioned. This contribution includes the creation of mail-order wine sales in 1923 and the launch of the first "bags in box" in the late 1960s. The owner of four winemaking estates in the Bordeaux region, including Château d’Arsac (famous for both its Margaux wine and its works of art), Philippe Raoux opened France's first Winery in March 2007. The aim was to make wine more accessible and democratic. "What we want to do is experiment, never stop, not keep doing what we did yesterday", explains Philippe Raoux talking about La Winery, a vibrant place where each experience is a delight for the senses. Just 30 minutes away from Bordeaux, on the road leading to the Médoc vineyards, a contemporary cultural site made of glass and steel stands in a 26-hectare park: La Winery. This is neither a conservatory nor an academy. It is a huge complex offering newcomers and wine-lovers alike a modern, accessible and personalized approach to wine. You won't find a château or traditional winemaking facilities here. Instead you will discover a place that changes with the seasons and the events on offer, a transparent site that fits in perfectly with its natural surroundings. Welcome to La Winery… Read less

I thought on the first sip on New Years Day, 2011, I was drinking hard cider and didn't like it much, but Mary loved it. So the next day when we finished the bottle while unChristmasing the house, I came around some to her way of thinking. While we both like are wine dry and I study wine more than she does, my nose/tongue is "stone" compared to Mary's who can taste and smell the wine's small notes. However, this is "My Wine" list so it doesn't rate "I love it", but only a male moron would not by another bottle or two when your wife loves it.
