Domaine de la Mordorée

Cuvée La Reine des Bois Tavel Rosé Blend 2017

From Ets Martin 2017 on 12/11/2021. Laura no like — “bitter finish”. — 6 months ago

Domaine Virginie Thunevin

Grand Vin de Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend

2018 vintage. 100% Merlot from this estate in Lalande de Fronsac, named after Valandraud owner Jean-Luc Thunevin's daughter. Another sexy Bordeaux value. Good concentration, ripe fruit, ripe tannin and good acidity. A little alcohol heat in the finish prevents it from a higher score, but very good value at less than 10 euros. — a year ago

Domaine Virginie Thunevin

Bordeaux Contrôlée Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Pop and pour through an aerator. Nose: menthol, herbs, blackberry. A little toffee. Promising. Taste: pretty good! Distinct blackberry, some raspberry. Tannins pretty smooth. I really like it! 90. Great deal for the $11 I paid on sale - $10 after the case discount! — 3 months ago

Fleur de Scène

Grand vin de Bordeaux Blend 2015

From ETS Martin in late 2019. (Laura Christmas gift to John, after 2017. Had 2015 on 4/24/2021. Very dark opaque at center, magenta at edge. Forest berries. Bubble gum. Overripe banana/butterscotch/pecan bread. Tannins strong, overpowering front and middle mouthfeel and taste. Glorious lasting finish, breathing out for minutes (would that be alcohol?). All Merlot or some Cab franc? Velvety like right bank. — a year ago

Domaine Pascal Cotat

Les Monts Damnés Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

From Ets Martin 2018 on 12/19/2021. Excellent winter white. Peach up front; blanched almonds — no macadamia— mid palate, and celery finish. Laura points out high alcohol for a white, in order to get around certain tariffs. Don’t taste the hotness of high alcohol, however. It does go to one’s head. — 6 months ago
