Côtes Du Marmandais, Southwest France

Le Vin est une Fête Côtes du Marmandais Red Blend 2018

Nice discovery of the southwest, with this entry-level cuvée that makes you want to know the rest of the production. A blend that puts Abouriou in the spotlight, a grape close to Malbec or Tannat. The whole presents a very nice balance between structure and freshness; rather oriented red fruits, supported by marked tannins. Good q / p ratio

Belle découverte du sud-ouest, avec cette cuvée d’entrée de gamme qui donne envie de connaître le reste de la production. Un assemblage mettant l’Abouriou à l’honneur, cépage proche du Malbec ou Tannat. L’ensemble présente un très bel équilibre entre structure et fraîcheur; plutôt orienté fruits rouges, soutenu par des tanins marqués. Bon rapport q/p

L'Endémique Gamay

Juicy gamay with ripe cherries, light baking spices, fresh acidity. Drinks very easily from the open though you might need 5-10mins for the funk to blow off. — 6 days ago

Château Pradeaux

Vesprée Bandol Rosé Blend 2018

This is something else. Rejected from Bandol AOC. 100% Mourvèdre, aged a full year—half in cement egg, half in 15 hectoliter cask. Brilliant neon copper color. Nose is citrus peel, garrigue, and some heat. Palate is melon, citrus rind, fruit liqueur, strawberry. Not sweet or confected. Bitter finish. Wild. — 15 days ago

Réserve Merlot 2018

Color of cranberry juice, with a bit cloudy and purple hue on the rim. Nose of ripe sour dark fruits, like sour cherry and cranberry, a bit spice, a bit vanilla, a bit stingy in the nasal cavity, and a bit black tea fragrance. Taste of good quality tannins, good acidity, subtle sweetness, fermented cabbage, some mineral and spice, a bit oaky, and soft with some zest. Aftertaste of some more bittersweetness. On par. — 11 days ago
