Château La Garde

de Garde Brewing

The Kriek 2019

One of the best. So smooth. What makes this oriel so great is the creaminess on the finish. It’s definitely tart, but the balance is perfect. — 8 days ago

Andrea Calek

Chatons de garde Vin de Pays de l'Ardèche Syrah

Notes from Sensus Wine: 25-55 year old Syrah planted in calcareous clay, 21 day skin contact, fermented in 228L Bourgogne barrels of 3rd-15th pass.

Tasting notes: structured and still incredibly fresh. It's Syrah, but it's not too over the top. Tannins and fleshy characteristics are balanced, and the acids on this are overall very buoyant. I was expecting more funk, but this bottle is incredibly clean and very fruit focused.

In all, it's a Calek wine, and every bottle I've had from him is full of personality, vision, and intent.

Château Pierre-Bise

Le Haut De La Garde Anjou Chenin Blanc

Missed this at our blind tasting on daylight savings time, but did at least get the possible varietal, and got to drink this for dinner, so I got that going for me. It tasted older and oxidized, but had big acid that I didn’t pick up completely. — 3 months ago
