Vintage 2020 Les quelles de la coste - cuvée carmenere | very dark colour. In smell blackberries and black cherries, initially gloomy but after half an hour in the glass it is joyous and expressive. Friendly taste with good concentration and a velvety structure. We paired it with one of our home favorites, Cantonese beef with mango, and this went well above expectations. Well made Vaucluse wine that gives immediate pleasure. — 8 days ago
2018 vintage. A rare 100% Carmenère produced by the Finnish Berglund family ftom 15 years old vines at Château Carsin in the Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux appellation. This wine is sold as "Vin de France", was aged in clay amphora and bottled unfiltered and unfined. Only 1000 bottles produced. Very spicy. — a month ago
No one wanted to open this bottle at a function, so I took it home. We don’t want to waste anything, let alone a bottle of wine.
Nose has nice complexity, with blackberry, red cherry, fig, black pepper, and subtle green note that’s the signature of Chilean cab.
Medium body, juicy and quite eloquent.
Very pleasantly surprised. — 4 days ago
Wily and coy, leading me down a dusk-lit walkway of cobblestones and cascading ivy, whispering and beckoning through the shadows to a well hidden speakeasy entrance where it knows the doorperson. Must let it open for some minutes before tasting, let the demons out and then the softness reveals itself….
