Live from 8pm: #TWStaste white Rhône vs white Burgundy

Yeah I think so — a slight bitterness — like if you had a bit of the green skin still on your pineapple. — it actually tastes “green”…


#42


Right in the face :grinning:


#43

Dr C has just got home and rushed through the nose and onto taste - over ripe banana chemically thing in her words.


#44

Good body, lovely mouth feel, a big hit of tropical fruit, pleasant acidity and yes, agree about the alcohol!


#45

Its quite warming! But the alcohol doesn’t dominate at all. It adds to the weight and gives a little tingle on the finish.


#46

Quite smooth with a pleasant after taste. Very slight spritz in my glass


#47

Absolutely. It’s there, but not in a bad way!


#48

Definitely getting that!


#49

Yes, pheweee! It’s big on the alcohol alright! Still getting nice pineapple too, though, which works quite nicely with the big body. Would this work better with food, do you think?


#50

Savoury seaweedy Viognier thing. dr C again.


#51

Would love this with a big ol’ fish pie!


#52

The last of my glass had warmed up - the stone fruit now coming through nicely. Big mouth, long finish. I don’t mind the alcohol, but it does tingle a little.


#53

Wowed fish pie tonight😁


#54

Agree that this seems to need food. Not sure what though!


#55

Roasted veg :wink:


#56

Hope so, I’ve got a risotto lined up for tonight.


#57

Sorry wowee


#58

Fish pie is a good call


#59

Yes a good food wine - Cuttlefish tagliatelle!


#60

I see the recommendation to have it with chicken korma — I can’t imaging that alcohol heat playing nicely even with a relatively mild curry… Something like crayfish or a crab dish I could see though.
