Les Deux Domaines

Château Moulin de Launay

Entre-Deux-Mers Les Ailes d'Or 2019

This white Bordeaux wine has a subdued nose, but traces of stone fruit and citrus do come through the mineral curtain. The palate is also laced with minerals and citrus, with a nice touch of salinity to add to the waterside connotation of the region’s name. The acidity is fresh and zippy enough for a salad, some vegetables or a seafood dish. — 2 days ago

Château Gloria Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. This is the best Gloria I have ever tasted and quintessential Saint-Julien in this fabulous vintage. Concentrated black fruit, cigar box, floral notes and lead pencil. Margaux meets Pauillac. Powerful and elegant, layered and precise, with juicy acidity and a long mineral finish. Highly recommended. Abv. 13,5%. On release I thought it was superior to its stablemate Saint-Pierre, should try to taste them alongside again. — 18 days ago

Deux Robes Violettes Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2011

2022/5/6 with Japanese style bincho charcoal grilled ribeye with wasabi and shoyu, shishito peppers, bamboo shoots in dashi and rice with peas. I found this at a shop and the aging conditions seemed questionable, so I was prepared for whatever. Indeed, at first the nose seemed a little browned out, but the palate still had acidity and flesh - blueberry at first. With a couple of hours of air, though, the nose brightened up, with dark berries. There’s also green pepper and smoky herbs - an interesting angle on Japanese claret. — 17 days ago

Love the weight that the Semillon and Muscadelle bring to the table

Cuvée des Deux Soeurs Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2012

Post drinking note: damn good. This wine was weird when initially released, but after several years in a cellar, delicious. See my most recent prior notes for more specifics. — 15 days ago
