Yikes. An epic fail from Bartier Brothers. Wow. We tried. Sipping. Smelling. Aerating. This is just aggressive, potent, a clash of no merit. Words fail me. Weird to boot with a grassy finish. I was an inch away from installing Grammarly to avoid the vile language littered in my tasting notes. Shame. Same day we had a glass of their rather brilliant Semillon, an 11.6% wonder that is food friendly, light, lovely and delectable and nearly half the price.
Price: $33 from Save-On.
Market Liquidity: Throwaway B-side. At best. And I’m not thinking Ruby Tuesday with Let’s Spend the Night Together B-side. I’m talking Cold Turkey Don’t Worry Kyoko B-side.
