Cuvée Haitza Irouléguy Tannat Blend 2010

Mostly tannat(!) with the rest cab franc and cab sauv. It smells almost Bordeaux like initially. The nose and palate are absolutely stunning; black currant, raspberry, hibiscus, wet mossy earth, herbal, almost startling in its high toned elegance. Still developing hours after opening. I wish I had more. — 9 months ago

Ohitza Irouléguy Tannat Blend 2014

[Edit: 2 hours later this has come around a bit and a nice mineral character is showing through. Upped the score. Still not as interesting as the Pierre Rouge.]

We have quite enjoyed the other wines we’ve had from this producer; therefore we were surprised that this particular bottling turned out to be rather faceless & formulaic, a least to our palates. 😐

My buddy, whose wife is the Godmother of our son, is the Global Sales Manager of La Cave Irouleguy.

60% of the vineyards in the AOP are vinified by La Cave. The AOP is only a couple hundred hectares. We spent a week with them during 2019, and the landscape, the people, the food, and the wine are fabulous.

Been 4 years. Nose is wide open. Smoke, licorice, nougat, intense cassis, some rusted metal, mesquite bbq and gorgeous wet earth. Really compelling nose. Palate is like a Bordeaux with rich red fruits and tremendous structure and freshness. Not lactic at all like Bordeaux can get. Just teeming with energy and lovely red fruited sweetness on the finish. If France had a Tuscany it would be Irouleguy. Lots of pepper notes on the finish. Super juicy and so clean. A great wine but still better in 5 years. — 8 months ago

N:Quince, Pear, a bit of banana, yellow fruits.
P: Ripping acid, very bright, tart even, .
Lemons and flowers, refreshing, not long. A good match for Puerto Rican rice&beans.
Grapes most of us don’t run across daily,
Gros Manseng, Petit Corbū, 50/50, all stainless.
