La Charge

Touraine pet nat made with Loire based Menu Pineau grapes. 2nd time tasted, with a much drier approach this time; I preferred the first bottle that had some carmelized & riper melon notes on finish. Still, very good w some complexity — a month ago

The Pale Rosé Blend

In spite of its Deceptively Fru Fru label, this is a very credible Provence Rose, with all the attributes of a Rose from that region. Crisp, dry with a hint of sweetness; the color of salmon and a taste of citrus. Drank in October 2023. Easy to drink and pairs well with a variety of food. — 8 months ago

Château Baret

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. A blend of Merlot (76%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (20%). Owned by the Ballande family (also Prieuré-Lichine and Villa Bel Air). Amazing value! — a year ago

Blanc du Château Prieuré-Lichine White Bordeaux Blend 2022

Never saw this in the market. Small production. A Funky and Mineral take on Bdx blanc, drinking wonderfully now.
Liked it a lot.

Matouse Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Rich mouthfeel and I would say atypical for a sauvignon blanc. As such, it definitely fits in my wheelhouse. — 3 months ago

Alexis Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

#AgedWineTuesday

Ruby in color with a wide brick rim.

Beautiful nose of black currants, blackberries, blueberries, dried figs, raisins, light oak, licorice, light tobacco, light earth, chocolates, eucalyptus, light vegetables, herbs, wildflowers, cola and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, black plums, figs, dried fruits, coffee, light cedar, tobacco, chocolates, cola, vanilla, licorice, spices, light earth and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This gorgeous 18 year old Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley is drinking beautifully now.

This is a great surprise, as the cork totally crumbled, and I expected the worst, but it really delivered.

Shows nice balance, and great complexity with a velvety mouthfeel.

Easy drinking and good right out of the bottle. As it opens up, tannins come in (45 minutes), and make it more structured and interesting.

A great sipping wine to have all by itself and talk about. The nose is just gorgeous.

14.8% alcohol by volume.

95 points.

$80.

What a great review…Marco Cappelli made that wine…happy to see it’s still alive and well. Don’t think they ever got the respect they earned.

Confidences de Prieuré-Lichine Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Surprisingly good for a second wine in an tricky vintage. Gorgeous nose has cedar, roasted peanuts, cassis, purple florals, warm gravel. Nose whack of flavor up front, then lightens up as the palate progresses. A bit of gritty tannin in the finish. Would I prefer a bit more concentration and length? Sure. But this is quite nice. — 8 months ago
