Lalande de Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend

This Lalande de Pomerol is made by the Bielle family at Domaine de Viaud, not to be confounded with Chinese-owned Château de Viaud. Brut(es) is a 100% Merlot wine, vinified in amphoras only. Organic farming and no additives except 20 mg/l of sulfites which makes it officially fit in the new "natural wine" category. It's a delicious fruit bomb. Blackberry fields forever. Ripe tannin, juicy and intense. Good length too. No vintage mentioned on the label, lot number says L19L1, I suppose it means 2019 vintage. Abv. 135%. — 7 months ago

Côtes de Bourg Red Bordeaux Blend

2015 vintage. As I am moving to Bordeaux (and more precisely Bourg sur Gironde) it makes sense to dig a bit deeper in the Côtes de Bourg appellation. It's not the most renowned part of Bordeaux, even with one pricey superstar (Roc des Cambes). But wow, did this one exceed my expectations! The estate has an ancient history, but up to 1993 the grapes were sold to a local co-operative. The present owner Philippe Betschart moved the estate since 2010 into organic and biodynamical farming. This "Terroir" is a somewhat atypical blend (65% of both Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon, with the remainder Merlot) for the region where Merlot is king. More black than red fruit in the nose (cassis, blackberry) with some tobacco and a discrete licorice touch. In the mouth it has amazing elegance. The 14% alcohol go unnoticed, the fruit is bright and lively and the tannins velvety. This has class and depth for the price range (under 20 euros). Highly recommended. — 7 months ago
