Tonight I have opened the 2018 Château D'Aiguilhe Comtes von Neipperg. From Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux on the Right Bank. Blend of 80%Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.
On the nose is black cherry, black plum, black raspberry, green bell pepper, black olive, herbaceous notes, mocha and cedar.
On the palate there is black cherry, black raspberry, plum, black currant, green bell pepper, herbs and cedar.
A beautiful medium to full bodied wine with a silky and succulent mouthfeel with medium + acidity and medium + fine tannins that has a long dark black and blue fruit finish. The weekend has started and everyone seems, from what I see, feels this pandemic is finally over. Please continue to be careful out there and stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 9 days ago
An old friend, whom I am ecstatic to find again. Basically a Burgundy estate that was exiled from Chablis & is part of Côte d’Auxerre. Concentrated green fruits, lithe, delicate & powerful all at once. The balance is remarkable-I can’t imagine a better QPR. Polaner importer. — 13 days ago
Vintage 2019 | Made from 50 y old Carignan (60%), Grenache (30%) and Syrah (10%). 18 months barrel aging. That gives a solid wine with expressive smell (red summerfruit) quite frivolous, and a surprisingly powerful taste. Iron fist in a velvet glove. Really good. Paired it with venison steak. Good starter for the quest to Ventoux @Daniel M — 15 days ago
This family owned domaine is located near the village of Gassin that is considers as one the most beautiful villages in France. The grape are hand harvested and the final steps of vinification are done by Maîtres Vigneron de Saint Tropez.
A blend of Grenache, Syrah, Rolle and Cinsault, with a beautiful rose gold color, a tempting fresh nose that blends spring flowers, strawberry, cassis a touch of hibiscus and red berries, the body is medium with pleasant acidity and a fresh fruity finish.
A lovely well made rose to celebrate the spring and upcoming summer.

I bought this bottle 5 years ago for 16 EUR and I'm not sure about the current pricetag but man what a bargain it was. I had to dig deep into my cellar to pull this one but I'm so glad I did..
This is unlike anything I know from that region.
The nose is blood orange and olive and garrigue. The palate is magnificent. A very strong acid backbone, a very dry mouthfeel with those blood orange notes all along. A huge width and an soft mouthfeel, a power house of a mid palate with carressing tannins which create a drying layer, and eventually a very long, everlasting finish with that blood orange note which turns into blood orange peel in the end with a tiny bitter twist. This is greatness before my eyes (and tastebuds) — 16 days ago
