Ca' Marcanda Magari Bolgheri Cabernet Franc Blend 2016

11/17/20 Tuesday night and to follow up on last night's Gaja Ca'Marcanda Promis I have opened the 2016 Ca' Marcanda Bolgheri Magari. A Super Tuscan blend of 60% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot.

On the nose there is black cherry, plum, black raspberry, strawberry, mint, bell pepper, mocha and crushed gravel.

On the palate there is black cherry, red plum, black currant, green bell pepper, cedar, herbs and an earthyness.

This wine is full bodied with a smooth velvety mouthfeel, medium + acidity and medium + smooth round tannins that leads to a long dark fruit finish. A beautiful expression of a complex super tuscan. Love the mouthfeel and the all around expression of this wine. Continue having a great week and do stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷

Tenuta di Monterufoli

Poggio Miniera Val di Cornia Sangiovese 2012

Medium-intensity ruby dress with slight ruby reflections. Elaborate nose, rich aromatic bouquet: cherry, red fruits, licorice, roasting, herbaceous notes, fennel, herbs, caramel, oak, smoke, tobacco. The mouth is more delicate than expected, in a style reminiscent of Burgundy. The finish is superb, developing the promised aromas on the nose. At its peak.

Robe rubis d’intensité moyenne avec de légers reflets rubis. Nez élaboré, bouquet aromatique riche: griotte, fruits rouges, réglisse, torréfaction, notes herbacées, fenouil, aromates, caramel, chêne, fumée, tabac. La bouche est plus délicate qu’attendue, dans un style évoquant la Bourgogne. La finale est superbe, développant les arômes promis au nez. A son apogée.

Domaine Sigalas

La Sémillante Bordeaux Semillon 2015

2015 vintage. Sauternes will have to focus more and more on dry wines if they want to survive, but I strongly believe in the potential for dry white wines in this region. This is 100% Sémillon made by Sauternes Cru Classé Sigalas Rabaud. Deep yellow. Intense perfume of pineapple, flowers, honey and a hint of brioche. Powerful taste with exotic dried fruit, rather low-acid but well-balanced. Some residual sugar is obvious in the finish, but it works well for this exuberant style. Abv. 14,5%. — 4 years ago

Sauternes White Bordeaux Blend 2010

Extremely funny part about this one is that most people have never had or do not like sweet wines. It seems to me though they don’t know how to drink them very well. At this party we had a mixture of hard and soft cheeses, bread, and sausage. Showing people that a small sip of this wine combined with some of those flavors produced something much more interesting and tolerable feels like a big coup on my part. My guests went from not wanting to wanting another bottle of this wine. Honeyed apricots and dried peach flavors. Kind of dusty in a raw honey kind of way. Excellent second label of Chateau Sigalas-Rabaud. — 5 years ago

La Demoiselle de Sigalas Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Выпито 04.01.21 по приезду в Constance Moofushi на Мальдивы. Интересная комбинация совиньон блага и семильона 2015 года. Вино на пике зрелости. После естественной декантации ( в бутылке ) на завтра стало ещё нежнее. Понравилось. — 3 years ago

Château Rabaud-Promis

Premier Grand Cru Classe Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2011

Located opposite the Chateau d'Yquem, the Rabaud-Promis castle, on the hill Rabaud since the late eighteenth century. Sweet stone fruit aromas with hints of honey. On the palate full flavors of orange and peach with notes of citrus notes adding a bit of spice. Balanced acidity, rich finish ending with botrytis-like character. Very nice! — 6 years ago
