Domaine Begude is a small family-owned property located high in the foothills of the Pyrenees in the Limoux region of the Languedoc. The long, cool growing season lends itself to the production of crisp and delicate wines. — 16 days ago

A very nice Grenache blend - stronger Tannins than you might expect. Strong enough to complement beef burgers. Still quite smooth and dry. January 2020. — a month ago
Home alone, and as a result, I can return to some French faves. Regretfully, wifey tastes vomit if it’s anything other than a Napa fruit-bomb. Yes, I’m exaggerating, but you get my point...
This is on another level. 2009 was in my opinion a breakout year for this winery. With the winery renovations complete in 09, and Michel Rolland consulting on the winemaking, it’s easy to see the future state. This is a Merlot blend with double digit cab franc, and a dollop of cab sauv. I poured this pretty much at cellar temp (unusual for a typical Bdx), and it’s simply wonderful at this point.
Nose displays kirsch, nutmeg and a hint of sweet tobacco. The palate explodes with fresh black fruits, brown sugar, bold tannins, and a touch of white pepper. Judicious oak treatment allows the components and winemaking to take center-stage. A very contemporary example, which will sail on for another 15 years, minimum.
@Deborah M, your gentle nudge moved me. While I didn’t decant, I did open it 2hrs prior to tasting 🙂 — 2 days ago
Love the work Navarre is doing, particularly with his “forgotten varietals” series. Carbonic nose, slightly prickly mouthfeel that dissipates with time. Very vivid and lively. Incredibly fresh for the Hérault, the schist gives this a distinct slate-y tone that cuts through the dominant wild berry character, with a roasted coffee note on the finish. Very natural and alive in feel. 12% alc. love it. — 6 days ago
Hapan ja kirpeä. Hyvä nautiskeluun mutta liian hapan dokaamiseen.
