Mmmmm good 😋 My first time trying negrette - similar vibes & white pepper notes as Pineau d'Aunis, but less expensive. Only $18! Thanks to the folks at Riverview Wines in JC for recommending — 6 days ago
Had the 2005 vintage - an expensive drop for us but completely delicious! Very different for a Merlot, incredibly woody and leathery, just south of Bordeaux and would have had a much heftier price tag if made a few Kms north. Excellent wine! — 12 days ago
I don’t think I have ever had a Malbec from France. It made a statement! Crisp, sharp tannins submerged in dark extracts of pipe tobacco, cassis, dark cherry and unripe blue berries. Strong backbone with vibrant acidity. We started sipping it late at night and it evolved from an intriguing brass quartet to a full blown symphony with huge drums, trumpets, and double bass. — 4 days ago
New wave of Cahors. A good volume due to the very greedy type of grape variety that is Malbec. Black fruits, marked and stretched mineral notes, soft and loose tannins. Balanced tasting. Great drinkability for its price range.
Cahors nouveau style. Sur la fraîcheur et le fuit. Beau volume dû au cépage au combien gourmand qu’est le Malbec. Fruits noirs, notes minérales marquées et tendues, tanins souples et amples. Dégustation équilibrée. Superbe buvabilité pour sa gamme de prix. — 14 days ago
Love this wine. Year 1999 is such a great year! — a month ago
Natural Southwest French white blend for under 15$-Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, semillion & Chenin Blanc. I don’t like Alsatian blends but this I do: like a rich Muscadet. Floral but not heavy on the Sauvignon Blanc, balanced. Celebration of lifting of Covid restrictions in New York State, with friends on the Hudson — 7 days ago
Forgotten bottle at my in laws. What a good surprise! Didn't know I had left it there 🤷🏻♂️.
This is again a very biaised review as this comes from a vineyard located 10 miles away from where I grew up. A blend of negrette and syrah.
There is a strong violet, blackberry, irony, pepper nose. Very inviting. The palate is very much defined by its acid backbone and its vibrant blackberry and cherry note. There is a huge tannins wall in the middle here, drying up everything in its wake but making way to a fruity, peppery finish with a fruity twist. Huge wine for less than 10 euros — 18 days ago
Vermelho terroso não muito vibrante, e bom corpo. O aroma não é aberto, mas é bom e amadeirado. Tem uma acidez equilibrada, e não se sente os taninos. É um bom vinho. — 11 days ago
