Deep ruby red in colour, with a black cherry core. This wine has lively berry fruits on the nose, with a touch of liquorice and a hint of black pepper. The 2009 is full of fruit, juicy and round with ripe tannnins that gently support the cherry, cassis and herb character on the finish.
A ruby red wine, with a vibrant red fruit bouquet. Made in a clean, fresh style with lovely balanced structure that is supported by silky smooth tannins and a pinch of sweet spice. Typical Merlot character continues through the long, velvet finish.
An excellent chateau, owned by the Fabre family. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot grapes and traditionally vinified. Aged in oak barriques with blackcurrant flavours and lots of creamy, vanilla oak.
A red dress sharp, brilliant, with the reflections garnet. Finely timbered, the fruit dominates with raspberry notes. The flexible attack is followed of a large volume supported by velvety tannins. The final is long and cordial.
Dark, deep red colour. Nose is expressive of berries and flowers (strawberry, raspberry, peony) . On the palate the wine is soft well-rounded with a beautiful harmony between power and velvety ripe tannins. The finish is long, fruity with a touch of pepper.
The palate is bright with ripe red and black fruit aromas and rich liquorice notes, balanced by delicate tannins. This wine has a remarkable balance, thanks to its good acidity and freshness. Long finish with white pepper flavours.
"Dark purple. Heady red and dark berry aromas are complicated by incense, fresh flowers, baking spices and minerals. Sexy strawberry and raspberry flavors offer a smooth, velvety texture and impressive depth. Finishes clean and brisk, with outstanding persistence. I love this style for its vivacity and precision."
Very dark colour with crimson highlights and a wonderfully complex and powerful bouquet of morello cherry, blackcurrant, and spices. The freshness and fruitiness on the nose carry over beautifully to the palate, which has a long, silky aftertaste.
The 2017 Cote Rotie was still in separate lots when I visited, yet I came away with remarkably similar impressions from the Gerine (fragrant charming and silky) and le Plomb (taut, intense and structural) as I did last year. A number of other lots will go into the final assemblage (Chavaroche, Fongeant, Lezardes and several more, probably including La Landonne). There's more cracked pepper and vio…
A wine full of charm: bright ruby colour and a nose rich with aromas of red fruit (raspberry, red currants, wild strawberry). On the palate, the wine is pleasant, fruity and refreshing, with light tannins and great elegance.
Deep red colour. The aromas are powerful and elegant, with notes of cherry and blackberry, as well as hints of cedar wood evolving towards gamey touches. On the palate: beautiful balance between structure and softness. The long aftertaste is reminiscent of fruit syrups and mild spices.
A great Burgundy, worthy of its reputation. An intense, bright, red colour; a powerful nose, with notes of black cherry and spice, evolving towards aromas of young leather. On the palate, the tannins give a certain impression of firmness, somewhat softened by a nice, harmonious texture. Persistent flavors in the aftertaste
The nose reveals a spicy plum and blackberries, followed by notes of vanilla and black pepper. The palate conveys the perfectly ripe fruit, great concentration and a backbone of round tannins. Supple and ripe this Merlot a classy taste of the South of France.
Given the new interest in �Volcanic Wine� it should be noted that Auverge is the largest volcanic area in Europe. The main production is of red wine; the appellation is classified as within the Loire, though geographically is quite separate from it. Gamay/Pinot Noir is a traditional blend, giving distinctive light, mineral wines which can be enjoyed at classic room temperature, but are even more p…
Light purple in colour, with a elegant, fresh intense nose of soft red fruits. The palate is equally open and fleshy with lots of fruit and little tannin. Wonderfully soft and accessible, plenty of character backed by good balancing acidity.
The Clos de Combe long is made up of 70% Carignan and 30% Grenache, grown on rocky calcaire soils. Michel produces around 160hl each vintage, but yields are a parsimonious 20hl/ha. Vinified in tank, it's youthful, but fresh and extremely supple. Rich intense purple-garnet colour, striking dark fruits and lovely acidity. Comes in at 14.5% vol� but dont let this put you off as it is a wine in perfec…
The 2010 Moulin des Chnes is a full, soft, generous wine mainly from Syrah, Grenache and Mourvdre. It is generous in body with supple tannins and primary fruit and freshness, with a long, mellow finish.
