Michel Guignier

Canon Les Améthystes Moulin a Vent Gamay 2018

Pretty raspberry nose, the mouth is airy and concentrated. Fine and persistent finish on fruity and floral notes typical of the vintage, without exuberance. The discreet charm typical of the Michel Guignier style.

Jolie nez framboise, la bouche est aérienne et concentrée. Finale fine et persistante sur des notes fruitée et florale typique du cru, sans exubérance. Le charme discret typique du style Michel Guignier.

Le Mont Moulin á Vent Gamay 2019

Deep, rich red fruit on the nose, gummy bears, a hint of leather. Some floral and herbal notes follow, with mushroomy earth, funk, and autumn leaves hiding underneath. The palate reveals even deeper notes of raw oyster mushroom, stewed cherry, dried leaves, and flowers pressed in a book. A slight tang of marjoram. A hint of ash. Characterful and distinct, a bit richer and heavier than most Moulin-Á-Vent. — 19 days ago

Château des Jacques Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2014

Gastronomic style. Pleasant appreciation of aging with toasted, spices. Almost oily mouth texture, ample style. Lacks a little freshness to hang the tasting.

Bouteille au style gastronomique. Agréable appréciation de l’élevage au style toasté, épices. Texture en bouche presque grasse, style ample. Manque un peu de fraîcheur pour accrocher la dégustation.

La Cravate Bourg Malbec 2018

2018 vintage. La Cravate , Clos du Notaire , Bourg. This is an extremely rare 100% Malbec (300 bottles produced) from Bourg. Concerning the name, just Google "cravate de notaire kamasutra". Apart from the name and the beautiful bottle, this is an outstanding wine, showing the potential of Malbec in Bourg.
Blackberries blueberries, cassis, violets and cigar box. Malbec can sometimes lack elegance, but this beauty combines power and finesse. Seems effortless. Very long. Amazing. 59 euros and well worth the price if you manage to find a bottle.

Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2020

I’m not a big Beaujolais fan but this is about as good as it gets. Give it a little time for some funk to blow off. Bright black and red berry fruit, fruit roll up. Great structure, grip and lift. — 15 days ago

Château Le Clos du Notaire

Notaris Côtes de Bourg Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

2018 vintage. Notaris , Clos du Notaire Côtes de Bourg. A blend of 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot. Intense black fruit and cedar. Concentrated and very fresh. The oak is still a bit obvious at this stage, but it should ultimately outperform the outstanding 2017. Refreshing to see how this neophyte couple turns out great wines from the start (they bought the estate in 2015). — a day ago

Les P'tits Bouts Cornas Syrah 2018

Full of Cornasness: Olive tapenade, garrigue, violets, smoke, earth. There’s some black fruit in there if you dig real deep. Delightful now, but I predict the texture will improve with time as tannins soften and broaden. Great wine with a label so terrible it’s endearing. — 11 days ago

Moulin Touchais

Coteaux du Layon Chenin Blanc 1981

Last of the 1981 bottles I bought for my dear wife’s birthday and I believe this was the best. The cork was in incredible condition, looked only a few years old - Ah So made easy work of it. After allowing it to warm a bit - caramel apple, some barnyard funk on the nose, plus an under layer of fresh green apple. Palate is beautifully balanced, no sign of fatigue at all - this #coteauxdulayon #cheninblanc could coast for ages it seems. Caramel and honey notes, fleshy texture, some lemon, piercing acidity cutting through that sweetness, and more fresh green apple underlaying the baked notes. This was a nice counterpoint to the Sauternes we had closer to her actual birthday and a compelling alternative. — a month ago

Toichais lasts forever! We celebrated my parents’ 50th anniversary with a 1959 and it was as good as new! Better even!
