Domaine Borie De Maurel

Château Lalande-Borie

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Enjoyable and drinking well, if a little on the oaky side. Plum, black cherry, graphite in the palate with an herbal finish that folds in a dash of barrel char. A firm, taut style typical of the vintage. Good stuff. — 5 days ago

Château La Borie

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2015

Had to wait for this one to warm up a bit. Excellent wine for the price point. Little bit of barnyard, dark fruit, hint of leather and some spices. Nice GSM blend. — 9 months ago

Chimère

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

The Chimère from Manfred Krankl of Sine Qua Non fame, and the Maurel brothers of Clos Saint Jean, is, appropriately, a beast. Cherry, blackcurrant, Christmas spice, violets and chocolate. Many elements combine to make a compelling wine that deserves attention over time. Indeed, when this bottle was initially opened, the prevailing thought at the table was that it would last months. A small tipple to check in, some time later, was tasted with our own resident chimera (well at least she sort of has the head of Lion element down) present. — 2 years ago

La Belle Aude Marsanne 2019

9.1

Gorgeous s. French white. Delicate and wispy-textured, peach focused with a slatey backbone and salty finish. Understated and very very pretty. A great discovery, especially in the context of how little attention is paid to whites in the region. Best at cellar temp. Obviously young and improved steadily with a bit of air time — 3 months ago

2016 vintage. Seductive and well-balanced. Good value for Pomerol standards. This property was bought in 2005 by the Castéja family (Borie-Manoux négociant, owner es of Batailley , Lynch-Moussas, Trottevieille etc) — a year ago

La Grand Mayol White Blend

Very nice, floral and peachy with a kiss of vanilla on the finish. Enough acidity to render it refreshing on a hot cévenol evening. — 2 months ago

This, their entry level bottling, is a steal at €12. Drinking well right out of the gate. Textbook juicy blackberry, garrigue and mineral on a medium bodied frame. Flavors echo and are well defined. Great producer... — 3 months ago

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

The 2012 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is comprised of of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot made by François-Xavier Borie, oenologist Christel Spinner and consulting oenologist Eric Boissenot. The vines at Grand-Puy-Lacoste are 38 years old and are set on gravel soils. The wine needs more than a two hour decant to unveil ripe creme de cassis, anise and graphite flavors with lighter earthy tones. Bright and focused, this is just an infant now.
