La Féline Minervois-La Livinière Syrah Blend 2019

Beautiful Southern gourmandise. Grenache in front with its notes of black fruits, coffee, chocolate. Syrah brings its lot of pepper, violet, typical menthol, and Carignan, thyme and garrigue notes. The 14 degrees of alcohol are absolutely unfeeling. It’s very good, it’s very soft.

Belle gourmandise sudiste souple et soyeuse. Grenache devant avec ses notes fruits noirs, café, chocolat. La Syrah apporte son lot de poivre, violette, menthol typique, le Carignan, du thym, des notes garrigue. Les 14 degrés d’alcool ne sont absolument pas sentir. Ça se boit très bien.

This, their entry level bottling, is a steal at €12. Drinking well right out of the gate. Textbook juicy blackberry, garrigue and mineral on a medium bodied frame. Flavors echo and are well defined. Great producer... — 9 months ago

2016 vintage. Seductive and well-balanced. Good value for Pomerol standards. This property was bought in 2005 by the Castéja family (Borie-Manoux négociant, owner es of Batailley , Lynch-Moussas, Trottevieille etc) — 2 years ago

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Vintage 2012 | coming into its tertiary period. Lost its fruit, oak more in front. ‘Richesse’ as the French would say, but a bit onedimensional. Paired with chicken. — 4 months ago

Château Lalande-Borie

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Deep red, subdued nose with pepper, potato, and soil. Medium body, medium plus alcohol, not showing too much on the palate, but otherwise nicely balanced. Good, not very good.

La Grand Mayol White Blend

Very nice, floral and peachy with a kiss of vanilla on the finish. Enough acidity to render it refreshing on a hot cévenol evening. — 9 months ago

9.1

Gorgeous s. French white. Delicate and wispy-textured, peach focused with a slatey backbone and salty finish. Understated and very very pretty. A great discovery, especially in the context of how little attention is paid to whites in the region. Best at cellar temp. Obviously young and improved steadily with a bit of air time — 10 months ago
