Château Caroline

Cru Bourgeois Moulis en Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend

2016 vintage. Owned by the Chanfreau family (also Lestage and Fonréaud in Listrac). A blend of Merlot (65%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (35%). Still a bit on the oaky side, but the wine handles it well. The red fruit is juicy and fresh, the tannins ripe and the wine has elegance. Wait a few years until it fully absorbs the oak or decant if you drink it now. — 13 days ago

Château Lestage

Cru Bourgeois Listrac-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend

2018 vintage. This historical estate has been in the hands of the Chanfreau family for over 50 years. They also own Château Fonréaud in Listrac and 2 Moulis estates (Châteaux Caroline and Chemin Royal). Lestage is the only Listrac granted Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel in the 2020 classification. The 2018 vintage is a blend of 62% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot. The nose is a bit oaky at first, but the wine starts to truly shine after an hour in the glass, so take your time or decant. Cherries, cassis and cedar wood in the nose. The fruit is concentrated and layered, embedded in a powerful tannic structure with very good balancing acidity. While the warmth of the vintage is unmistakable, there is no sign of jamminess. Impressively long finish too. Incredible value at 11,90 euros. If you open this in 7 or 8 years you will curse yourself that you didn't buy more. Kudos to the owners and consulting enologist Antoine Medeville. Abv. 14,5 %. — a month ago

Chassagne-Montrachet Chardonnay 2017

Caroline Morey chassagne chambrées 2017

One of the best Chassagne villages that I have had in 2017. Henri Germain was the best Meursault village in 2017 that I have drunk. The 2 producers are among those at the top of the qualitative pyramid in my opinion. For this Chassagne from the opening we have notes of honeysuckle, acacia and hazelnut. Pale yellow color with greenish reflections. On the palate, the attack is powerful on lemon, acacia and the mid-palate is sustained with a finish worthy of a premier cru. Certainly very young but I had to try it to know the starting point. A great success for the appellation

Domaine Mule Blanche Crozes-Hermitage Roussanne Marsanne 2018

“All my wines tells a story” is quoted by Caroline Frey and the back label, and I do Iove this story from start to finish. Make it a winter staple and pair it with a French classic, such as Sole à la meunière or a Chicken with cream and mushroom sauce.
La Mule Blanche from Paul Jaboulet Aine is an equal blend of Marsanne and Rousanne. It present a Burgundian like expression but a bit riper profile. Ripe primary fruit with grilled lemon, juicy peaches, honey and buttercup that is supported by a foundation of nuts and crushed stones. A lovely texture on the palate with good weight and density that is balanced by a savoury and fresh base note that holds the wine togheter throughout the finish.
