Clos Fourtet

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Blend of 90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc, aged for 16 months in 60% new French oak. Deep Ruby, purple edges, with aromas of black berry fruits, cedar and meaty smoky notes. On the palate flavors of baked plums and black currants with cacao and tobacco spice, on a well balanced frame. Fine dry tannins, long finish ending with fruit, earthy spice and cedar character. Nice! — 2 days ago

Clos De La Roilette

Clos de la Roilette Fleurie Gamay

I was a little concerned I let it go too far in bottle on its own, but with pepperoni pizza and rigatoni bolognase and a little time to air out, it was very nice. I think one of the few Beaujolais wines that can spend more time in bottle reliably. — 19 days ago

Clos Erasmus

Laurel Priorat Garnacha Blend

A mild Grenache to me. Approachable and modest. Missing the kick I often experience with that grape but it also made it more mild than I would have liked. Fragrant and balanced. — 11 days ago

Domaine des Lambrays

Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2017

I don’t get to try this ultra premium segment of Burgundy much so it is a treat to have this. This displays ripe aromas of berries, rose petal, leafs and wine gum pastille. It is medium bodied. On the palate you get more berries, citrus fruits, vanilla and cinnamon. The finish is fresh and dry with district fine tannins. — 17 days ago

Clos de la Maréchale Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

2017 vintage. Decanted and tasted for the next 5 minutes-2.5 hours. Medium body. Expressive oak and spice wizardry early on with sharp and clearly defined flavors all in a row. After approx 45 mins, the sharpness started to wane a tad and the harmony began to roll in. Good intensity throughout. Coming across this at least a half decade too early but this is built for the long haul vs short-term gratification. 2.10.24. — 15 days ago

Clos des Papes

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2015

Over three years since I opened up the first bottle. Still young-ish but much easier to drink after a quick decant of half an hour. All the typical scents and taste of C9DP. Very balanced. Clearly from a warm climate but retaining ample freshness. Like it a lot. Hope I can keep my hands off it in the coming years to check in on the remaining bottles every couple of years — 14 hours ago

Clos de los Siete Malbec Blend

I think this is an amazing Malbec blend - 58%, 23% Merlot, 10% Cab, 8% Syrah, and 1% Petit Verdot but… it needs to open up a little bit more; I can’t help being impatient- this wine has been 9 years for me to find it tucked away in a small city Arkansas liquor store. Initial impressions are - I love this but and the intricacy of the blend. On the nose - definitely blackberry and black currants. So smooth and perfectly balanced on the palette. I would definitely purchase this again but I’d look for an older bottle for sure! Oh, did I mention this bottle cost under $20? — 21 days ago
