Saint-Vincent Côtes-du-Rhône White Rhone Blend 2019

I really like this wine. It has a good mouth feel, some sweetness but not too much, juicy with a dry finish. There’s a lightness to it but also some structure. It’s quite elegant. Notes of elderflower. — 2 months ago

Château Barrail Tapon

Montagne Saint Emilion Merlot Cabernet Franc 2019

2019 vintage. Château Barrail Tapon, Montagne Saint Emilion. As this is the fourth impeccable wine with amazing value mentioning "vignobles Gabriel & co" this week, it seems safe to say that it is a quality label. This one is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc and it's juicy, fruity and fresh with ripe tannin and good length. Another great value at less than 7 euros. — 3 months ago

Château Cantemerle

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

I can’t overstate my love for the Cordier stable in the 1980s and this reinforces that passion. From a 375 ml bottle in a Gabriel Glas Gold, savory leather and a streak of mint play off brooding dark currant to deliver fine depth. It initially seemed a little dilute, but 30 minutes of air brought out the fine tannin and acidic structure it needed to frame the flavors. While fine on its own, it really took off when paired with a prime ribeye. A terrific final red for this challenging year. — 20 days ago

Caves São João

Poço do Lobo Arinto 1994

Nose has honey, juiced lemon/orange, oxidized apple, warm toffee, dried coconut, sea spray, light Sherry notes, shellac flakes, old wood planks, sawdust, browning butter and roasted tree nuts.

Palate has dried lemon, old wax, toasted pistachio, honey, butterscotch dipped yellow apple with flaked sea salt, candied lemon and an incredible finish. Long with fine acidity, non-stop, oxidative notes but not overindulgent. Decanted +2H, continuing its development on our glasses (Gabriel-Glas StandArt tonight).

This wine is perfect shape and still has many years in front of it; 2030+ in proper storage. Quite possibly one of the finest bottles of any blanc we've enjoyed this year, certainly in a top five for 2020. A great example of why Portugal's blanc offerings need so many years of rest, the reward is substantial.

@Josh Morgenthau Figured any mention of Sherry would get you going 😍

Petit Gravet-Aîné

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2002

What a surprise..!
This is a very noteworthy wine in this vintage.
Dark colour - black core. Upon opening it shows wonderful notes of grilled meat, roasted capsicum and herbs, coffee, chocolate, incense and blackberries. Tannines are wonderfully integrated and there is a lovely savory quality on the palate. Only slightly rustic, this CF-heavy (!) Saint Emilion is drinking beautifully now.
René Gabriel was right. It’s quite remarkable.

4 hrs after opening, warming up a little bit, it even improves...!

Clos de Malte Santenay Chardonnay 2011

Nose has oxidized yellow apple slice, dried papaya, candied pineapple, hay bale, cold candle wax, oak shavings and buttercream.

Palate has dried pineapple, dehydrated lemon, pineapple cake, limestone sand with a very long finish.

Lightest color of yellow in the Gabriel Glas, by far the least visually oxidized version of this wine of all prior. Fresh as a Spring day!
