St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

It’s time for some Merlot on this#MerlotThursday.

Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

On the nose, plums, black currants, strawberries, sweet cherries, light cedar, licorice, vanilla, earth, herbs, chocolates, tobacco, spices, dark coffee and black pepper.

Medium plus in body and soft, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with currants, black plums, cherries, oak, light vanilla, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn, earth, light vegetables and herbs.

Medium finish with fine tannins, tangy raspberries and peppercorn.

This young Bordeaux from Saint Émilion is already showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel.

Tasty and interesting. Tangy and rich. Needs a couple of hours to open up properly.

Still young, but starting to drink nicely now. I am surprised of how approachable it is already. Still a little unbalanced, and needs another few years in the bottle to mature properly. Would be nice to revisit it in 5 years.

This 2018 vintage is showing a lot of potential. A little lighter than the 2016 I had a couple of weeks ago.

A good quality wine that will age nicely in the next 15 to 20 years.

I paired it with Brie cheese and crackers.

A blend of 68% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$55.

La Voûte Saint-Vincent Morgon Gamay 2018

A week after 2019, we taste 2018. Quite similar in the design. With another year, it begin to express, notes of evolution tending towards Pinot-noir and this slightly truffled flavour, dried flowers. Delicacy.

Une semaine après le 2019, on goûte le 2018. Assez semblable dans la conception. Avec un an de plus commencent à s’exprimer au nez et en bouche, des notes d’évolution tendant vers le pinot noir et ce côté légèrement truffé, fleurs séchées qui apporte à la gourmandise une certaine délicatesse.

Saint Amour Gamay 2018

The Beaujolais wine we love to taste. Carbonic maceration that brings explosive and intoxicating fruity, coupled with pigeage in the Burgundian style, and partial ageing in barrels bringing delicate tertiary notes. The colour is bright red, typical of a Saint-Amour. The bouquet is ripe and floral red fruit, with beautiful herbaceous notes. The tannins are fine but well marked. The finish is stretched on freshness, strawberry and flowers. It's a lot of fun.

Le type de Beaujolais qu’on adore goûter. La macération carbonique apportant le fruité explosif et enivrant, couplé avec un pigeage à la bourguignonne et d’un élevage partiel en fût apportant de délicates notes tertiaires. La robe est rouge vif typique d’un Saint-Amour. Le bouquet est fruits rouges mûrs et floral, avec de belles notes herbacées. Les tanins sont fins mais bien marqués. La finale est tendue sur la fraîcheur, la fraise et les fleurs. Beaucoup de plaisir.

Chiroubles Gamay 2015

Well aged in Magnum format. A very beautiful beaujolese vintage who pinotes as we like. Notes of grape variety: cherries, rose petals and iris.. Beautiful notes of evolution dried flowers, truffled, humus. The 2015 density and the evolving aerial nuances of gamay form a rich and refined bouquet. Very greedy. Interesting final for this type of wine.

Bienn vieilli en format Magnum. Un beau cru du beaujolais qui pinote comme on aime. Notes du cepage: cerises, griottes, pétales de rose et iris.. Notes d’évolution: fleurs séchées, truffées, humus. La densité de 2015 et les nuances évolutives aériennes du gamay forment un bouquet riche et raffiné. Très gourmand. Finale intéressante pour ce type de vin.
