Côtes De Blaye, Côtes De Bordeaux

Château Nodot

Perle de Nodot White Bordeaux Blend

2015 vintage. 100% biodynamically farmed Sauvignon blanc made by young Blaye producer Jessica Aubert. This wine was meant to be drunk young, but actually a nice surprise at almost 6 years old. Light golden colour. Fine honeyed and floral nose with impressions of dried pineapple. Sweet exotic fruit with a certain complexity and nice spicy length. Very nice if you are into older whites. — 8 days ago

Château L'Escadre

Grande Réserve Blaye Merlot Blend 2016

What a deal at Costco. This is tasty — 2 days ago

Château Le Puy

Rose-Marie Rosé Blend 2015

Deep pink. A little sweet spice, like honey baked ham, small white flowers on the nose. A light and fresh palette, initially you get fruit like fresh blueberries maybe a little tartness/cranberry with a nice sense of minerality, dissipates quickly into slight funk and menthol/cough syrup/outer layer of tootsie pop. Long finish. Definitely more tannin then you’re used to with a rose. — 2 days ago

Château Les Grands Maréchaux

Cru Bourgeois Premières Côtes de Blaye Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

This was the mystery wine at the Downs Club Committee dinner on Wednesday night and I was a long way from picking it. I don’t want this to sound snooty but I rarely drink Cotes de Bordeaux and on this showing I should be. Merlot dominant medium bodied with red fruits, a touch of tobacco and grainy tannins. Incredible QPR - can be bought for $30 in Australia. — 24 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 days ago
