Tsarine Premier Cru NV
Peach and some sweaty characters on the nose. Palate is cleaner but not much of interest.
82/100

Tsarine Vintage 1999
Grapefruit and guava aromas. Lick of sweetness to the palate. Seems a bit flat and lacking character.
84/100

Tsarine Rose 1999
Strawberry and a bit of earthy funk. Palate lacks length and depth. Nothing to interest me into trying it again.
82/100

  1. We’re the Irish importers of Tsarine. We like to read the less good as well as the glowing reviews – customers don’t always speak their minds the way published reviewers do. I should just mention, though, that the Tsarine NV gets a very, very positive write-up in The Best of Wine in Ireland 2008.
