Clos Apalta Limited Release Carménère Blend 2012

Last bottle of what has essentially been my house wine for the last 5 years. Smooth and silky with little tannin. Deep purple fruit and some oak. . It won’t develop. But it need not. A very reliable and easy drinking red for any occasion. — a month ago

Cuvée Alexandre Atalayas Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot noir is a classy wine. Although, as wise people write and say, it is also a capricious wine. Nevertheless, this Chilean pinot noir is certainly classy. You don't need to pray to him. Five years old and very fruity. In fact, apart from vanilla, it is the same fruit (cherry, raspberry - although here may be a trick because I ate raspberries today - plum). There is something sharp in the nose, I don't know what, maybe nothing, maybe only alcohol "caresses" the nostrils. — 3 months ago

Cuvée Alexandre Apalta Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Smells of ripe blue and blackberry, black pepper, fresh leather, sweet flowers. Very pretty. The tannin is fading, but holding on. Acidity rushes down the side and front of the tongue. The mouth feel is thick and fruit forward, but not over extracted in any way, with blue and blackberry to mirror the nose. The method of production using weight to crush the grapes really comes through with softer tannin and less extraction, yet still fruit forward and rose bud and leather finish. Just yum. — 2 months ago

Château Suduiraut

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1959

Tasted blind. Dark gold and as heavy as oil as it rolls around in the glass. Notes of apricot and spice, some brown sugar, some sautéed pears and oranges, and a little white stone. Heavy in the mouth. A bit heated and medicinal. Perfectly paired with Grand Marnier soufflés. Great end to a wonderful evening. Thanks Stan! — a month ago

Le Petit Clos Apalta Red Blend 2015

Ming L
9.2

Beautiful second wine of Clos Apalta. The nose is expressive yet delicate, with cassis, blueberry, vanilla, tobacco, incense, touch of herbal spices, and hint of dry lavender. The full body is finely tuned like a long distance runner without any bulkiness. Soft and expansive palate, with polished tannins.
For 2015 it contains an unusually high 47% Carmenere. 6 months in 225 lt new French oak barrel, and another 17 months in French oak barrels, 22% new.
Nothing petit about this wine!
