Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

2009 vintage. At that time this estate was owned by French Bank Crédit Agricole, but it was sold in late 2019 to the Perrodo family (owners of Marquis d'Alesme and Labégorce in Margaux). Considered very good terroir, fairly close to the Gironde with 30 years old vines and some very old plots. The blend in this vintage was 55% merlot, 40% cabernet sauvignon and 5% petit verdot. Very attractive nose after 30 minutes in the glass, ripe cassis and flowers. More elegance than sheer power, this is drinking well today with a nice balance between cassis fruit, good acidity and well-integrated oak and alcohol (abv 14%). With a little bit more depth and more fruit in the finish this could have competed with some of the crus classés. In any case very reasonable value at 29 euros and what you'd expect from a good Margaux at this price point. — 9 days ago

"Isabelle" California Pinot Noir 2016

Outstanding! Continued to improve throughout the night. Clearly a nuanced baby that would greatly benefit from more time in the bottle. — 21 days ago

Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence Rosé 2019

It’s been about 3 years since I’ve had this organic Provence rosé from #cynthiahurley and this vintage doesn’t disappoint. The color is so clear that it looks like a white, but don’t be fooled... the strong acidity and fresh strawberry flavors are 100% rosé. I find many imported Provence wines to be mediocre, but this really stands out and isn’t expensive. Also has a screw top for the beach 😉 — 22 days ago

Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

2015, beautiful vintage, balanced and generous; typical of Bordeaux. Still a little young. Great potential.
