Château Roland La Garde

Roland Lavantureux

Fourchaume Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2019

Clean, crisp, zesty and pure. Palate if slightly tropical - a mix of just ripe pineapple and lemon zest. Slate, and smoke fully integrated into a perfect whole. Fantastic chablis. — a month ago

Special Club Blanc de Blancs Brut Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay 2016

9.3

Tasted in a Riedel Bordeaux glass - pure alcoholic heat. In a zalto bordeaux glass - texture was off, nose brioche. In a Zalto AP glass, brioche, chalk and unmistakable CURRY (!!?!?) and finally in a stolze quatrophil red wine glass where this special club saw its most pristine fruit, marzipan and minerality. — 2 months ago

Château Roland La Garde

Côtes de Blaye Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

NOSE: Overtly European. Yeast, barnyard, dirt, gun flint, dry herbs for cooking meat (including mustard?), bitter cherry.

I’ve never mentioned “mustard” in my wine notes before.

TASTE: As the nose - initial blast of yeast and barnyard. Lingering finish of … barnyard … in the sense of hay and manure. In between, silky tannins and a nice mouthfeel. Fruit is the background, but clear - tart cherry (quite distinctly cherry, bright red ones), raspberry, and plum. Go figure. I don’t know that I’d buy it again - it’s not my preferred style - but it is enjoyable. 89-90.

Olivier & Roland Gessler

Côtes de Gascogne Colombard Blend 2020

Apricot and peach nose. Because of this we expected it to be sweet, but it isn't. Lemony, zingy palate, super smooth, and oh so drinkable. Excellent choice for a hot summer day. — a month ago
