Côtes de Castillon Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

2017 vintage. The Côtes de Bordeaux is a fantastic playground for value seekers and this Castillon is no exception. To be honest I feel sorry for owner Patricia Aroldi that she has to sell a biodynamical wine of this quality at such a low price (4,95 euro consumer price, I kid you not!). A blend of 86% merlot and 14% cabernet franc. Bright red fruit and flowers in the nose. Good fruit concentration and ripe tannin structure with vibrant acidity and more than decent length. Very easy to drink now, but this should age well for a few years. Highly recommended. Abv. 13%. — 2 days ago

I agree Stefan, wrong distribution channel 🤨

It just shows that it is not that easy to sell lesser known Bordeaux regions. And contrary to the image, Bordeaux produces some of the greatest values in the world.

It must be frustrating if you want to invest in making quality wine that there are price barriers linked to the place/region

Lussac St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1998

Nose has moist leather, blackberry jam, grilled red pepper, dried blueberry, dry cedar shavings, dried black cherry, dried rose and dry gravel.

Palate has dried blackberry, dried blueberry, sauted red pepper, minor cedar box, Cuban cigar, ripe plum, lingering acidity and mild tannins. Overall in a quite nice spot this evening.

Perfect pair to homemade burgers from a local farmer in Columbia Co. NY (Kinderhook Farm), cooked to a beautiful medium-rare served on toasted brioche burger rolls. Topped with the first harvest of our heirloom lettuces, it was a cool 44°F this morning so ideal timing to trim lettuce in the cold frame today. Home grown tomato topping will have to wait until August. 🤷‍♂️

Decanted 6h+ and doing just fine. Last bottle displayed heavy green pepper and herbal notes, not this bottle, more to our expectations. Can continue to hold/evolve another 6-10+ in proper storage.

95% Merlot / 5% Cabernet Franc

Château Bellevue La Randée

Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Proteiny...like when you smell wet mushy fertile live earthwormy soil with cherries budding in the fleshy forest. A bit of farmy cheese funk. The palate showcases earthiness and young fruit, even red apple skins. Supple tannins and a finish that floats over that wet young ground. Pair with tapas leaning toward hard cheeses. Think manchego with hard salami. — 17 days ago

Signargues Côtes du Rhône Villages Red Rhone Blend 2018

Medium ruby hue. Aromas and flavors of blackberry, cranberry, pepper, plum, toast, and vanilla. Medium-plus body; firm, medium-plus tannins and refreshing, medium-plus acidity. An rich, ripe bouquet of fruit and spice; a soft, well-integrated mouthfeel; and an easygoing finish (with a little heat on the backend). A solid, everyday wine. Blend of Grenache (50%), Syrah (30%), Carignan (10%), and Mourvedre (10%). — 2 months ago
