Château Les Croisille

Silice Cahors Malbec 2019

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.

Cahors Cuvée des Hauts Coteaux 2018

70/30 Malbec/Merlot Blend with a bold purple color. Aromas of plums, currants and red berries with a hint of violets. Tart red/black berry flavors. Much more restrained than a New World Malbec. Medium acidity and tannins. Long finish. Solid QPR. — 20 days ago

Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Very reasonably priced French Sauv Blanc from TJs. It probably won’t be around as summer heat approaches, so chill and enjoy this one by stocking up now. — 15 days ago

Château Barouillet

Bergerac Blanc Sec Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2019

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 — 3 days ago

Celliers Reine Margot

Chateau Les Masseries Bergerac Red Blend 2016

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. — 7 days ago

Domaine Le Roc

Cuvée Don Quichotte Fronton 2015

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

Love those biased reviews 😉

Domaine Cosse et Maisonneuve

Le Petit Sid Cahors Malbec 2005

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! — 8 days ago

Domaine des Rutissons

Verdesse 2019

Really a delicious and unusual wine. Definitely an excellent wine. Quite a bit of apparent confectionary / sweetness on the nose and even the early palate, but this is certainly dry. Wonderful mouthfeel and nice length and acid. Nice wine. — 19 hours ago
