Domaine de L'Idylle Divine, Roussanne, 2013

Light, refreshing, brightly acidic, tart to the point of palate cleansing. A tad hard to place. There is no hovering bouquet, but what there is—gooseberies, kumquat, damp earth—is pleasant, pleasurable and very food friendly; go cheese and go big.  Go fondue.  If you’ve ever had a wine from Switzerland—a good wine from Switzerland—and you liked it, then you’ll like this.  There is something both perfect and imperfect in the same mouthful; think Jean Arp.


We have been collectively “trained” to dislike wine like this. Which, while true, sad and weirdly anti-wine, means this probably won’t win any favour with your vino clique. My metaphor is Bill Cunningham’s photos; it takes all sorts and without all sorts we’d all be the same.


Price: $17 USD


Market Liquidity: Striking, if not striking a balance.
