RD Winery

Grand Cru Reserve Syrah 2014

Pleasant but unbalanced. Big, ripe red and black fruit, supple, just a bit low on acid — 20 hours ago

Grande River Vineyards

Cabernet Franc 2016

Excellent white wine blend - the classic Sauvignon blanc/Sémillon blend but made more full bodied with vanilla due to aging in oak barrels. Paired wonderfully with salmon. — 2 months ago

Domaine Ogereau

Clos du Grand Beaupréau Savennières Chenin Blanc 2008

Rich, mature, nutty, floral and citrusy. Mandarin, mango, lemon oil, lots of peppery spice, resin, wet rocks, pine kernels and cheese.
True, it’s a peculiar mixture, but it works!
This is great to drink now, the sooner the better, in your garden, some roasted almonds and some old goatcheese within reach.
Fantastic QPR at 15€ @wijnvanjoop

Château de Villeneuve

Le Grand Clos Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2016

Odd wine of the night. Cab Franc to top it off. Fresh ripe tomato and tomato leaves, dried herbs (oregano) on the nose. Tastes much better than it smells. Light bodied, with medium plus acidity, slight red fruit feel and herbaceous finish. Again odd wine, not surprising for a Cab Franc, but good tasting experience. — 2 months ago

Domaine de l'Aujardière (Eric Chevalier)

La Noë Muscadet-Côtes de Grand Lieu Sur Lie Melon de Bourgogne 2018

Je suis un fan de muscadet. Pas de ces versions acides et étriquées à vous détartrer ce qu’il vous reste d’émail aux dents, non. Plutôt de ces envolées fluides, légères, agiles et admirablement tracées livrées par un melon de bourgogne traité aux petits oignons. À celui-ci s’ajoutent texture saline et densité qui allonge la finale. Top ! — 19 days ago

Château Musar

Bekaa Valley Red Blend 2013

Decanted for around an hour, the recently released 2013 Grand Vin from Chateau Musar is an enormous wine at present in its youth. Gradually, it opened into a gorgeous, exotic and utterly unique product of this unlikely corner of the wine world. There’s plenty of Bordeaux-like character in the form of dark fruit and cigar box, but there are notes too of cranberry, liquorice, clove, mandarin and five spice. The mouthfeel, as a whole, has a quasi Brunello quality to it, with its bright cherry fruit and mouthwatering acidity. But woe is anyone to compare this wine to any other, for it is incomparable. One of Serge Hochar’s last vintages before his passing in 2014, and one that will doubtless have a long life. — 2 months ago
