Vin Vieux Grande Reserve Ait Souala Red Blend 2017

2018 was a great find. Evocation of Madiran and Cahors wines, with Tannat and Malbec grapes. Very ripe black fruits, spices and toasted notes. Deep mouth and freshness well balanced. 17 is more flexible, is a bit more homogeneous and round. Definitely a very good quality / price / pleasure ratio.

2018 était une belle trouvaille évoquant les vins épais de Madiran et Cahors, avec la présence de Tannat et Malbec. Toujours fruits noirs très mûrs, notes épicées, toastées, toujours un bel équilibre. Avec un an de plus, l’ensemble est plus souple, plus homogène. Définitivement un très bon rapport qualité/prix/plaisirs.

Maison Arnoux & Fils

Vieux Clocher Nobles Terrasses Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2017

Such a surprising nose - a bouquet of pungent roses right out of the bottle. Light, dry finish but a layered palette that makes me think of Bylinksá Kyselká. Not a sipper. $31 NH LS dp. — 9 days ago

Domaine du Vieux Château Vieilles Vignes Chablis Chardonnay 2014

Consistent & balanced. This shows a mineral driven palate with plenty of round edges with air, this is quite expressive and tense. Refreshing even in a frigid November backyard setting. — 6 days ago

Exactly what I expect from a French Merlot! Lighter-bodied and jammy, bone-dry but still juicy. — 3 days ago

La Crau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 1989

Near perfect '89 CdP. Rich, yet elegant. Strawberries and sous bois, earthy notes in the nose. Vibrant fruit on the palate. Drink now and over the next 5+ years. Tasted with '89 Bonny Dune Le Cigar Volent. Each complimented the other. Great wine.. — 8 days ago
