Château Le Vieux Chêne

Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

More grab-bag Bordeaux, why not? Nice pepper and just overall brighter than the random ‘16 consumed last night. Balanced acid and ripe red fruits. — 6 days ago

Télégramme Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2017

Classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape nose of chocolate over berries with some pepper and garrigue. Bold, juicy, milk chocolate with enough acid to keep things fresh. A little boozy and young tannins. Not the most complex but what it does, it does very well. Yummy. — 9 days ago

Condrieu Viognier 2016

Apricot, vanilla, some white flowers too. A usual condrieu nose with a barrel twist. I like it. The palate is very wide and long but goes on step by step. There width and a silky, almost velvety mouthfeel. There is apricot all along, the mouthfeel stays on for a long while and overcomes the fruit, some much so that the structure lingers longer. It came along with home made foie gras (half cooked with cognac) and it was a very nice pairing. Merry Christmas to all of you, wine lovers! — a month ago

Sous le Chêne Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2016

Distinctly savory and herbal with the fruit concentration of a lightly flavored fizzy water. Elegant and unique. — 8 hours ago

Château du Vieux Puit

Cuvée Croizet Blaye Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Dried red fruits and some spiciness in the palate. Not a long finish. Probably a little past its prime but pleasant for Sunday afternoon and pairing well with Stilton. — 8 hours ago

Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2010

Vieux Donjon 2010

Le nez n’est pas très expressif après 1hr en carafe mais on dénote subtilement des notes de fruits noirs et de réglisse.

En bouche c’est la réglisse qui attaque en premier, une touche de prune confite des herbes (thym,origan) mais chaque gorge a une certaine chauffe. Le vin fait bien ses 14.5% d’alcool mais n’a pas une lourdeur désagréable. Parfait pour un journée froide et enneigée comme aujourd’hui avec un bon plat mijoté!

Effectivement tres bon, mais légère préférence à Charvin 2010 bu il y a 1-2 mois. Plus dans ma palette de Cdp. Mais Donjon était quand meme un régal.

Vieux Solitaire

Grande Réserve Maury Sec Grenache Blend

Superb nose with licorice, blackberry, garrigue, other red fruits. This is very intense and inviting. The palate shows a very nice strong acid drive and a great width, with matter on the sides. Licorice and blackberry play back to back notes all along. The mouthfeel is soft, until mid palate where some dusty tannins spice things up a notch. Very long finish with that tannic grain, licorice and blackberry. I'm probably biased as this is my uncle's wine (he bought shares in the vineyard 2 years ago) but this is one of the best grenache blend I've had. More Maury sec please!

@Delectable Wine it's a Maury sec AOC

Le Vieux Donjon

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend

C’est du beau Chateauneuf-du-pape en jeunesse. C’est épicé, fruité, cerise et framboise avec des notes de violette, de prune et de garrigue. C’est assez puissant et doté d’une belle longueur ! — 22 days ago

La Crau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2005

Beautifully transparent, ruby hue. Upon opening this is tight, and animal scented. Then it blossoms to reveal violet accented florals, candied red fruit, ginger, gojiberry and more. Grapey with persistent tannins. Not at all too sweet or ripe. This has a rustic balance that’s unique to Vieux Telegraphe and is one of the things I really love about the domaine. — a month ago

Just had the ‘06 and it was also in a great place. 15-18 years in bottle seems to be a sweet spot.
