2016. Mencía, Brancellao, Mouratón y Sousón que, además, lleva un pequeño aporte de Garnacha tintorera. Atlántico, afrutado, mineral, herbáceo y con notas balsámicas. He copiado las notas de cata porque me ha parecido un vino muy complejo que merece la pena probar. 16€ aprox. Excelente caldo. — 21 days ago
Questo e il nostro favarito, e buono con pesce e vongole. Mia moglie ha sento un spumante nel gusto, perche e bio. Sarebbe molto buono mercato! — a month ago
Intressant uttryck, inte speciellt burgundisk utan mer jordig och riktigt aromatisk. Runt 90% hela klasar, mycket lite fatinblandning. Bra struktur och potent utan att ha vare sig mycket frukt eller alkohol. Bär, kaffe, blöta löv, saltlakrits, eukalyptus. De hela klasarna har inte gett någon grön smak alls men väldigt mycket aromatiskt. Lite så att smaken inte är i samma höga nivå som doften. Gynnas massa av luft och tid. — 2 months ago
🏅 Rating 92/100 (4,2⭐)
🍷Firm and full-bodied wine. Jammy sweet red strawberries. Rich on the palate with good presence of fruit. LJ style is showing with noticeable oak. Red grapefruit on the back of the palate and a long finish. This wine is shining at the moment. Deep and concentrated with perfect balance between the big robust and the elegant styles. Altogether justifies its 1er cru status.
5-star vintage of 2005 requires lots of patience for many top Burgundy, but this one has already opened its drinking window.
📍Les Boudots covers 6.3 ha and sits on the East facing mid-slope in the Northern part of NSG and borders famous Vosne 1er Cru of Malconsorts. The soil is brown limestone and marl.
This wine is fermented in vats for 3-4 weeks and then aged 15 months in oak prior to bottling.

Astonishing that this very old wine is drinking just great! The ‘74 Cab from Souverain was my very first early favorite way back then. Got this single sample and figured must be vinegar by now but be good for nostalgia for the long gone vineyard. Instead this is a delightful shock! Labels look great. Cork has top layer of crap but in good shape though the very bottom broke off. Wine has nice garnet color with little hint of its age. Still lively, well balanced and tasty even if not super complex. Nose is just straight out attractive with very ripe dark red fruits as background for the foreground earth and field and hay. No way I’d have guessed 46 year old Sonoma Pinot! Kept sniffing and satisfied even before tasting. Palate is light and lean but still lively and texture is firm and acidic carrying over to good finish. Like an aged but still athletic and elegant ballerina showing off. What a pleasant and memorable shock in these crazy times! Lot of 4 oldies from 70s￼￼￼, Sutter Home Zinfandels (2) Montevino and primarily for these but this Pinot already made it worthwhile for AA20. Adding two to 9.3 for the age! Back label says ‘74 was great vintage and wine ready to drink but will still be good in 3-4 years with proper storage. Ha! Day two still standing strong in Eto and dancing with delight. Enough for one last glass in day or two. Day three drank without food before dinner. Kept sniffing and sniffing. Elegant and complex nose with notes of sour plum and very ripe dark fruits. Only possible in such well aged vino! Memorable. Too bad only bottle. — 20 days ago
2015 vintage. This big 101 ha estate is considered one of the oldest in Bordeaux with vines planted in the 14th century. It's owned by the Castel family since 1971. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Beautiful nose with cassis, blueberries and cedar wood. While the mouth doesn't quite live up to the nose, this is a classic Haut-Médoc with good purity, fresh acidity and well-integrated tannin that opens up nicely in the glass and that should age well. Could do with a bit more body but good value at 12,90 euro. Decanting recommended if you drink it now. Abv. 13%. — 25 days ago

Just happened to be enjoying a bottle at my mother’s birthday. She’s 70. Believe it or not the wine paired well with a coconut cake. Ha ha ha. How fun. What a delicious wine. And the cake wasn’t bad either. — 2 months ago
