Gros Manseng

Château du Retout

Le Retout Blanc Gros Manseng Blend 2016

Star bright straw gold in the glass. Nose of baked quince and citrus rind. Echoed on the medium-bodied palate with stony minerals and underripe white peach. Firm acidity throughout as expected from this solid Sud-Ouest white. Pork chops, cassoulet, or even light cuts of beef with Béarnaise will pair nicely. Drink now through 2023. — 14 days ago

Les Loachausses Echezeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2017

You can drink this as is. Not clear to me why I would age a wine which is awesome out of the gate. Stunning but 192$. Violets yes. Super elegant. Very well managed oak. Just a touch chalky. Pomegranate mostly. Hint of cherry. Tiny touch of blueberry really just a touch! And sandalwood. Yes this has all the hallmarks of a Grand Cru. Obviously for the wealthy or folks who forgo clothes and buy this instead. — 19 days ago

Domaine Michel Gros

Les Chaliots Nuits Saint Georges Pinot Noir

It is necessary to take decanting. But from one hour, we can enjoy complexity. A bit body more than mid. Elegant. Aroma actually better over time, 2 hours and more 2004 @4650, Eric Tsai, 191113 — 6 days ago

Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2013

Wine 2 of the Daube Provençal dinner. So much character. So minerally and iodine on the nose, dark blackberry extract fruit too. Rich and clingy in the mouth but with nice acidity and the tannins there but not obtrusive. Nice! — 17 days ago
