Château Moulin de Launay

Entre-Deux-Mers Les Ailes d'Or 2019

This white Bordeaux wine has a subdued nose, but traces of stone fruit and citrus do come through the mineral curtain. The palate is also laced with minerals and citrus, with a nice touch of salinity to add to the waterside connotation of the region’s name. The acidity is fresh and zippy enough for a salad, some vegetables or a seafood dish. — a month ago

Lovely and supple fruit. Grapey blackcurrant and some underbrush. Resolved oak. Very nice now- a little generic — 3 years ago

Côtes de Bourg Sauvignon Gris 2019

2019 vintage. A rare chance to taste a 100% Sauvignon Gris, a variety that almost went extinct after phylloxera, but it's still present in Bordeaux and other regions, mainly as a blending grape. It is naturally low-yielding and matures early. Light golden colour. Intense perfume of fresh passion fruit and a hint of flowers. Round and ripe, with crisp exotic fruit and very good minty length. Great value and a very original Bordeaux. White Côtes de Bourg is already very rare, let alone a 100% Sauvignon Gris. — a year ago

Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Toasty, berry and cherry bunch, plums, very regal and aromatic. Toastiness is dominant. A touch rusty. Some nail polish towards the end. Long finish. Reminded me of Liger Belair. — 4 years ago

Violets, dark cherry liquor, ripe blackberries, hint of sandalwood, Provence herbs. Needs time for the tannin and acidity to get fully integrated but good effort. — 9 months ago

Les Chaponnières Pommard 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

First experience with Launay-Horiot. While I've heard lots of good things about this rising star in Burgundy, the 15' Chaponnières was just underwhelming. Sure, there's balance and depth in the wine, but I expected a little more freshness and fineness from the domaine. Tasting notes from the professionals seem to indicate the prevalence of the vintage's warmth in this wine. Rich and earthy would best sum it up. Bouquet of cherry brandy, earth, mushroom, and graphite. The palate is muscular and smokey, balanced by well-judged acidity. Nice chalky tannins and finishes with a savory tang. A miss here for me especially for the price, but at least there wasn't any marmalade notes which I detest in Pino. Will seek out Xavier's wines again, but probably 16' onwards first. — 2 years ago

@romo I should have noted that it went very well with the mushroom pizza 🤣 But yea... Just didn't meet expectations

Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir

Fruit, marcona almond, floral nose. Stylistically it’s bread-y. Brioche and unsweetened gingerbread on the palate. Good acidly up front and dry finish. 50/50 blend Chard and Pinot — 5 years ago
