Château La Tulipe De La Garde

Château Pradeaux

Cuvée Longue Garde Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2004

This was the Longue Garde cuvee. Better the second day, or just Garde it for Longue-er. Similar to the regular Bandol but with more heft and a pronounced topnote of cedar. — 10 days ago

Château La Garde

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

It has softened and the cherry is less pronounced. Plum vanilla. Getting better! I will try again next year. — 3 months ago

Chatons de garde Vin de Pays de l'Ardèche Syrah 2012

Great look on a slowly developing Ardeche Syrah. Some leather and a bit of pine forest floor, otherwise such an energetic and vital wine with lots of years ahead of it. — 2 months ago

Château des Jacques

La Rochelle Moulin-A-Vent Gamay 2013

Ruby colour, deep, still suggesting a potential for ageing and evolution. Burgundi nose between aging and undergrowth notes. Spicy red fruit, creaminess. The matter in the mouth is almost milky. Ageing in typical of Louis Jadot style, melted, bringing tannins and a little fat, international Parker style. Not necessarily the most expressive year, but elegance.

Robe rubis, profonde, suggérant encore un beau potentiel de garde et d’évolution. Nez bourguignon entre élevage et notes sous-bois. Du fruit rouge épicé, de l’onctuosité. La matière en bouche est presque lactée. Élevage en barrique typique de Jadot, fondu, apportant des tanins et un peu de gras, style international, Parker. Pas nécessairement l’année la plus expressive, mais de l’élégance.

Bandol Mourvedre 2004

All of the garrigue. Tasted alongside the Longue Garde version but this was the superior wine for right now. — 10 days ago
