Gabriel Boudier

Louis Jadot

Clos de Malte Santenay Chardonnay 2011

Nose has oxidized yellow apple slice, dried papaya, candied pineapple, hay bale, cold candle wax, oak shavings and buttercream.

Palate has dried pineapple, dehydrated lemon, pineapple cake, limestone sand with a very long finish.

Lightest color of yellow in the Gabriel Glas, by far the least visually oxidized version of this wine of all prior. Fresh as a Spring day!

Château Barrail Tapon

Montagne Saint Emilion Merlot Cabernet Franc 2019

2019 vintage. Château Barrail Tapon, Montagne Saint Emilion. As this is the fourth impeccable wine with amazing value mentioning "vignobles Gabriel & co" this week, it seems safe to say that it is a quality label. This one is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc and it's juicy, fruity and fresh with ripe tannin and good length. Another great value at less than 7 euros. — 3 days ago

Château Rocher Bellevue

Côtes de Castillon Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

2017 vintage. The Côtes de Bordeaux is a fantastic playground for value seekers and this Castillon is no exception. To be honest I feel sorry for owner Patricia Aroldi that she has to sell a biodynamical wine of this quality at such a low price (4,95 euro consumer price, I kid you not!). A blend of 86% merlot and 14% cabernet franc. Bright red fruit and flowers in the nose. Good fruit concentration and ripe tannin structure with vibrant acidity and more than decent length. Very easy to drink now, but this should age well for a few years. Highly recommended. Abv. 13%. Vignobles Gabriel & co. — 7 days ago

I agree Stefan, wrong distribution channel 🤨

It just shows that it is not that easy to sell lesser known Bordeaux regions. And contrary to the image, Bordeaux produces some of the greatest values in the world.

It must be frustrating if you want to invest in making quality wine that there are price barriers linked to the place/region

Château Le Grand Moulin

Collection Grande Réserve Blaye Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

2018 vintage. Another spectacular value from the Côtes de Bordeaux, this time from Blaye. From 79 hectares of vines on sandy gravel soils. A blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet sauvignon and 5% Malbec. Again I feel sorry for owner Jean François Reaud that he has to sell such a good wine at silly prices (4,95 euro consumer price!). Even at twice the price it would be great value. Subtle nose with ripe black (blueberries, cassis) and red fruits (raspberry) with a subtle floral touch. The taste is amazingly elegant, the fruit is fresh and crisp, with a good soft tannic backbone, some complexity, moderate alcohol (abv. 13%) and very good length. Extraordinary value.

Domaine Leroy

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 1999

Just concluded the annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.

Reddish-brown, translucent; mid-shoulder fill for this particular bottle, saturated cork but solid without any deterioration. Enjoyed in our Gabriel Glas's.
Nose has wet earth, forest moss, dehydrated black cherry, molasses cookie, cherry compote, over-ripe strawberry, wet wood, cherry syrup reduction and mahogany shavings.
Palate has dried cherry, dried strawberry, (minor) metallic minerals, dry soil, medium tannins on the long finish. Anyone still holding this should consider enjoying this in the near term (2020-2024), when held in proper storage.
