L'imprévue Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes White Blend 2014

The wine is supposed to be a 50/50 blend of Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris. The GG wins of with loads of stone fruits and their pits. — 12 days ago

Domaine Gauby

Vieilles Vignes Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes Grenache Blanc 2013

Complex white and not for the faint of heart. Slight oxidation, muted floral aromas with subtle notes of almonds, beeswax, vermouth and green olive. This is a vehicle to enhance food. — 19 days ago

Bastide Miraflors

Cotes Catalanes Vieilles Vignes Syrah-Grenache Blend 2016

Bouquet of boysenberry marmalade on toast.

This is one of those wines that has a complete one to one relationship between bouquet and drinking experience.

Intense, lush, full fruit. Berries. Mango. The type of wine that would make an excellent base for a sangria on a warm summer eve.

Fragile Rosé Grenache Blend

Fragile - I don't believe it’s pronounced frah-ghee-lay - has a big, bright nose full of big, bright red fruit. A bit of heat pokes its head through, too, owing to the 15% alcohol content. That cherry-red fruit comes through on the palate as well, with a boatload of acidity to boot. The winery notes say Fragile pairs well with lighter fare and warm, sunny days. I'd have it with pork chops in a heartbeat. — a month ago

Château Joanin Bécot

Côtes de Castillon Red Bordeaux Blend

Vintage 2010 / my favorite Castillon because it is so seductive in smell and taste. Deep colour, rich smell of cedar and pencil shavings,red summerfruit, velvety taste, satin alike. Roundness and pleasure, still that pretty tension of tannins but very accessible too. Paired with tenderloin. Great Bordeaux from small region. — 4 days ago
