Rivesaltes & pepper

[bottle]Mas Amiel 2004 Muscat de Rivesaltes (Roussillon) – White-flowered lightness done in by the spirituous finish. Yes, I know that’s the way the wine’s constructed, but it works to separate the components into two less-appealing parts, rather than a cohesive and symbiotic whole. Were the alcohol a little less aggressively present, I think I’d like this more. (12/07)
