Château De Roquefort

Château Simon

Cuvee Prestige Barsac 2015

Exotic fruits, pineapple, passion fruit. On the grassy side, hay, peach in syrup, apricot... superbly in place for this 2015 with a potential for evolution over the next 25 years, potential evolution towards notes of dried fruit and nuts. Sweet without saturated sugar. Digestible and light. A real wine in the refined sense of the term. Magnificent on a Roquefort cheese.

Notes fruits exotiques, ananas, fruits de la passion. Côté herbeux, foins, pêche en sirop, abricot… superbement en place pour ce 2015 avec un potentiel d’évolution sur les 25 prochaines années, évolution potentiels vers des notes de fruits secs. Doux sans sucre saturé. Digeste et léger. Un vrai vin au sens raffiné du terme. Magnifique sur un Roquefort.

Petit Salé de Villeneuve Vermentino - Clairette Blend 2017

Loved this, a real favourite. A saline treat! — 2 years ago

San Polino

Helichrysum Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2009

Good but overpriced Brunello. This Brunello is just too strong for most food. It went well with Roquefort but likely nothing else. The finish is very peppery. The attack is very strong and inelegant. — 4 months ago

Les Genêts Côtes de Provence 2019

Typically shy Vermentino on the nose with Mediterranean herbs but everything but on the palate. Taut & clean with great tension between the shy fruit & herbs and the beautiful mineral salinity. Great caracter and sense of place and at 12% alc this is such sheer drinking pleasure. A brilliant white! — 2 years ago

Cantina dei Produttori Carema

Carema Nebbiolo 2016

My ‘ house’ wine shared w friends & paired with baked Cod & Roquefort sauce, roasted vegetables, & barley. Pretty in color & on the palate: rusted rose hips, some distant forest floor. Medium plus acidity but enough to cut through the Roquefort sauce, & low enough tannins to not spar with the cod. — 10 months ago

Les Mûres Côtes de Provence Grenache Blend 2015

Typical CdR blend of Grenache, Syrah & Carignan with a dash of Cinsault, gives the typical fruit forward flavors (raspberries, blackberries, plums) yet in a very light, airy & crunchy manner - more of a gothic cathedral than a baroque palace.
On the palate this is also airy & light, with fresh crunchy fruit (Black fruit again, with a touch of olive), good quality, juicy tannins and a mineral backbone. Weightless almost, and this despite 14.5% alc!
A beauty!

Château Armens

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

2012 vintage. Alexandre de Malet Roquefort (owner of Premier Grand Cru Classé La Gaffelière, Chapelle d'Aliénor Bordeaux Supérieur and co-owner of the tiny Pomerol estate La Connivence) bought this estate in 1999. In my experience his wines are very reliable and classic, elegant and never overextracted. This medium-bodied Saint-Emilion (90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a solid effort for the vintage (that generally fared much better for Merlot than Cabernet Sauvignon). Strawberry fruit and very subtle oak, freshness and balance. Drinking well now, but I feel there is more room for improvement. A nice wine nearing maturity. The only "problem" is that for the price (21,9 euro) you can buy the delicious 2015 second wine of La Gaffelière. — 2 years ago
