Clos de Lunès

Lune d'Argent White Bordeaux Blend 2018

Normally I would never describe a white wine as being chewy, but this wine is chewy. It’s got some lovely velvety tannins from the Semillon. And the Sauvignon Blanc give it sparkle. Meyer lemon and limes on the nose. Vanilla and hint of brown sugar on the front. The medium tannic structure adds an understated solidity to this wine. Grapefruit high notes on the top of the palate and on the finish, with a return of the vanilla as I swallow. This is the setting sun in the glass that Emily Dickinson wrote about. — 10 days ago

Château Mongravey

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

2008 vintage. Bernaleau family (also owners of Haut-Médoc Château de Braude and Moulis Château Galland). Situated in Arsac between Château du Tertre and Château d'Arsac. Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon (around 70%) with Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Great effort in a difficult vintage. Dark red with orangy rim. Cassis, flowers and cedar wood. Textbook elegant Margaux. Drinking beautifully without the harsh tannin that characterises many 2008s. Lovely and nice value. — 4 days ago

Another bottle. Still great! Can’t think of a better house red. Freaking delicious for around $30. Has pedigree. Will go with a steak. Very serious wine but also worthy of a mindless 7pm Monday evening — 20 hours ago

Château Magneau

Cuvée Julien Graves 2014

2014 vintage. The website being very vague, the information is coming from other sources. A Sémillon (60%) and Sauvignon Blanc (40%) blend from selected parcels vinified completely in wood. Note that this estate produces more white than red, with 25 hectares out of 40 planted with white grapes. Brilliant light golden yellow. Exotic fruits and white peach with a toasted hint. Lightweight in alcohol (abv. 12,5%) but intense flavour of ripe pineapple and peach with crisp acidity and good length. Not particularly complex but attractive and probably at its peak. — a day ago

Clos René

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

The wine last night was the 2015 Clos René Pomerol Right Bank Bordeaux. A blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Malbec.

On the nose there is cherry, raspberry, black currant, violets, anise, faint hints of oak and earth.

On the palate there is bkack cherry, black raspberry, plum, blaxk currant, licorice, minerals and earth.

This is a full bodied wine with a silky smooth mouthfeel, medium to medium + acidity and medium to medium + fine tannins that moves into a long dark fruit earthy finish.
