Château Saint Aubin

Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey

En Remilly Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

DAY 1
👃Perfumed orange florals, peppery lemon & minerals
👅More pretty & less intense than many PYCMs. Palate is medium bodied. Not totally dry

Remaing wine Slow Decanted in my refrigerator

DAY 14
Change in character vs Day 1. The subtle fruit has been shrouded by intense minerality
👅Flinty, smoky minerality with just enough lemon fruit. Nicely salty. Long bold and distinctly dry finish

Quite different on the 2 occasions. It was more delicate and very nice on Day 1 but I preferred the intensity & minerality that had developed by Day 14💕🥂

Le Ban Saint-Aubin Chardonnay 2018

This smells like a meursault : butter, lemon, hay. That's nice... The palate is very good : very stong acid backbone, very nice lemon note, some buttery notes, a very good width, a good grip, some expanding mid palate and a finish with lemon and butterry touches. Very good — a month ago

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1985

1985. Synth laden moment. Depeche mode. Tears for fears. But I digress. Just opened this. It’s quite a structured wine. The nose is a little muddled right now but that’s because I didn’t decant. That said, after 15 minutes of opening in the glass the nose is indeed tannic cherry skin. Musty and such, but that fruit profile is obvs right up front. I would say that the same is true on the front palate. Cherries with immediacy and extremely full fruit. That is what drives my initial rating here. So rich and definitive fruit. Finish not real refined but it’s only been 15 minutes and this wine has just had the wires jacked out of it Matrix style. It doesn’t know itself yet. Will post some notes in a few hours to see if the landscape has changed. Cheers! — 7 days ago

Le Charmois 1er Cru Saint-Aubin Chardonnay 2015

Charmois, the working man’s Chassagne Montrachet, it is said. Very floral and citrus, butterscotch too. Great QPR. — 13 days ago

Cave Sébastien Blachon

Margariat Saint-Joseph Syrah 2019

Starts weighty and earthy, but becomes pretty with a few days. Earth, grape, brine, berry. Tannins are grippy and forbidding, actually quite bitter, but then this does have promising seductiveness and finesse. — 4 days ago

Château La Roque

Cupa Numisma Pic Saint Loup Red Blend 2019

Yes, to early-evening sunshine after being cooped up inside all day!! And, yes, to savoring a glass of delicious wine while we’re at it!!!

This wine is 60% Syrah, 40% Mourvèdre, hailing from the Pic Saint Loup appellation in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France. It was produced by Château La Roque, which is certified biodynamic and practices low-intervention winemaking.

It offers a medium purple hue with medium (+) intensity of youthful aromas reminiscent of black cherry compote, blackberry sauce, ripe plum, also licorice, anise, peppercorn, nutmeg, tobacco, leather, peat, and cured meat (not tied to bottle aging).

This wine is dry with medium acidity, high alcohol (14.2%), a medium (+) body, medium (+) and grippy tannins, and medium (+) intensity in flavors consistent with the nose, but the pepper is more present on the palate than on the nose. The finish is medium (+).

This wine has balance, a strong structure, and great concentration of aromas and flavors. It’s beautiful.

We have tasted and loved many wines coming from this appellation (and the Languedoc-Roussillon region) lately. It's a region undoubtedly worth exploring.
