Famille Fezas Domaine Chiroulet

Les Terres Blanches Vin de Pays des Côtes de Gascogne 2016

Vintage 2016 / Gives joy when young, and I thought drink within a year. But the winemaker told me that the wine can be enjoyed for at least 6 years. When older it has some resemblance with a Petit Chablis, he told me. French like everything with ‘petit’ 😊 — 16 days ago

Château Coutinel

Fronton Negrette 2015

I rather like this — especially for the price. Nothing super special but plenty of plum and full mouth feel from start to finish. Medium long finish with no dominant flavors: some earthy tones and soft leather. Generally satisfying. Holds up to rich flavors. — 2 days ago

Château Pineraie

L'Authentique Cahors Malbec 2009

Vintage 2009 / Wednesday Meatballsday (6) / Ten years old Cahors from Malbec, special cuvee ripened in new wood, a very rich smell with vannilla of course but also chocolate and some cherries. Powerfull taste, still enormous potential, smooth taste. I love it. / Paired with Polpettine, Italian meatballs from calf and pig in a simple tasty tomatosauce. — 3 days ago

Château Bouscassé

Madiran Tannat Blend 2010

Oaky on open and finish. Delicious, spicy, full-bodied, but with a smooth finish. Tastes of plums, cherries, and green apples. Hint of pepper on the finish. — 8 days ago

Domaine Le Roc

La Folle Noire d'Ambat Fronton Negrette 2016

This label cracks me up every single time😃
Violet, cherry, iron, earth. A firework of a nose and no trace of any barnyard funk lately which is good improvement on the same bottles opened one year ago. The palate is well balanced with a crazy fruit, violet exploding here and there, a strong acid frame and some matter, côte du Rhône style. Gentle tannins kick off a very playful finish with violet and cherry and a lot of fun. This wine is made out of grapes grown 10 miles from the house I grew up in near toulouse and it's always a win!
