Bodega Luigi Bosca

Gala 4 Cabernet Franc Malbec 2015

Omg didn’t expect to feel enthused and I am at least enthusing. It’s got that good ripeness but is ohhhh so fresh in an unpretentious way like it is en pointe but it took it til age 16 for madame to approve it for pointe (not projecting real life nahhh) so it says “elegant red and black fruit with undercurrents earth” but ”oh hi I’m so ripe cause like, The sun is hot!”. Ugh I adore this didn’t expect to and I do. Egads. — 3 years ago

Le Grand Clos Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2010

Vintage 2010 - there are multiple reasons why I love #bourgueil let me explain. When I just discovered wine as a real passion - at the age of 18 - I adored the raspberry smell no other wine offered so generous. I like the name: Bourgueil is by far the most beautiful AOC name. My wife and I fell in love with the great dishes of Madame Debacker and the #Loire region on our honeymoon. This #cabernetfranc is deep black in the glass. It has character. Even at this age the wine shows a bit harshness, and an austerity that is found in Bordeaux often. But the raspberry and cherry smell reminds me of Cru de Beaujolais. It has also flint and mineral expression in smell, hints of leather, tobacco, clove. On the tongue it has a velvety structure. Bourgueil can be complex and frivolous at the same time. / Partnered it with Bavette from bbq and cauliflower mousse. — 4 years ago

Nice Peter. I also love the Loire Cabernet Fanc and Bougueil has some very nice expressions.

Nice notes and memories, I may just have to pull a cork out of a Bourgueil this evening.

Domaine Gavoty

Grand Classique Côtes de Provence Rosé Grenache Cinsault 2021

Fun & fruity.

A bit more ripe fruit and body than expected in a classic Provence rosé, but I like it. Madame Gavoty blends in a few hours saignee rosé with direct press. Raspberry, strawberry, cherry, garrigue, wet limestone on the nose. Red fruits, orange zest, sour peach candy on the palate. Mineral sneaks back in on the finish.

Château la Tour de l'Évêque

Vendanges Manuelles Rosé 2016

Pale salmon in color. Nose of minerally melon, echoed on the palate which also yields white flowers and marzipan. Body is light. Acidity is medium minus (as appropriate for the appellation). Finish is surprisingly long. As I’ve read, the 2018 vintage is a bit weaker than its immediate predecessors and that shows here. Not as much depth as last year, but Madame Sumiere still managed to pull off a very nice and typical rosè. As well she should, having invented the style and all. Salade Niçoise is of course a natural pair, but feel free to take this one into the fall. Drink now. — 3 years ago

Not sure why someone gave this such a low rating. Not a great wine, but well made. Worked very well with a pork liver pate I made during the days of Covid. — 2 years ago

Some of the best value White Burgundy in 2015. Still have 3 bottles of the 2015 rouge to evolve over the next decade.
