Chapelle St. Theodoric

Château Meyney

La Chapelle de Meyney St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Second wine of Chateau Meyney, one of the oldest estates in the Medoc of Bordeaux. Deep Ruby with aromas of red berry fruits and sweet pepper spice. On the palate flavors of black fruits, cacao and spicy herbal notes. Lively acidity, fine tannins, medium+ finish ending with fruit, cacao and spicy oak. Drink now, only short term aging benefit. — 2 months ago

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. — 3 years ago

Cuvée Crus des Côtes du Rhône Crozes-Hermitage Syrah

This would go incredibly with a light first course. Not sweet, full flavored, light after taste but just right. Medium to light body. Very easy drinker, opens up very well. — 5 years ago

Chapelle St. Theodoric

La Guigasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache 2013

Pop and pour. Notes from about 2 hrs open. Hmm, this has darkened a lot in style. Still a touch of incense and red raspberry, but showing much more garrigue and olive tapenade than when it was younger. On the palate: solid acidity and just so giving. Very enjoyable and fun to drink next to a Betz Besoleil with similar age to compare new world--old school with old world--classically-styled. — 7 months ago

Château Chapelle La Rose

Prestige Lussac-St. Émilion 2007

Mushrooms, wet forest soil, coffee black and red currant. You can smell the age but it's lovely. Nice acid framework, silky touch, nice currant all along, fulky integrated tannins, nice coffee, and red forest fruits in the end for a nice amount of time. Good stuff — 3 years ago
