This is a different animal! Smouldering smokey nose with light ripe fruit. Woody and complex. Changing with every sip and just got better and better. Loved this wine. Major recommendation! — 8 days ago

Dry Riesling 2016

Wow, this shows how great dry Riesling can be. Mild petrol nose, bracing acidity of concentrated peaches and lime. A real chameleon as it warms as the body fills out. Wish I had more. — 2 months ago

Maximal Gut&Edel 2018

Polished and with an heir of mystery and smokey green skin. A lot the way Gruner can be - savory herbs, dialed back on the pepper note. Gut&Edel has aromas of white flowers and toasted dandelion tea, tastes like pears, yellow apples, and starfruit. — a month ago

Wizard Water

Grenache Blanc Piquette With Lemons

Tangy, zippy, crisp, zap! Sparkling spring water with a tiny buzz. Hard to believe this can get me tipsy. Feels like drinking kombucha. I feel healthy AF drinking it! Hopefully good for my gut! Yeah! — 2 months ago

Château Cantebau

Labastide Dauzac Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

My gut feeling on the identity of this blind was a young Brunello or Rosso with new oak. In hindsight, if I had been a little more methodical, the identity would have been obvious - the stickiness of the tannins as it hits the palate on the tongue was a dead giveaway of the Merlot (49%) component, while the directionality of the tannins as it moved across the palate along the gums (on the base of teeth) can clearly be attributed to Cabernet Sauvignon (51%). Flavours again tripped me. The Morello cherry aroma, sheen of volatile acidity, fresher fruit ripeness, elegant medium body, and tart acidity just never put me onto Bordeaux… but of course it was a Margaux.

This was a really elegant example of Bordeaux, but does come off a little simple - just juicy fruits (red on the nose, black on the palate) and new oak, which leaves you yearning for more complexity to fill the “void” between the flavours. It is perhaps still a little young at this stage (my notes came after 3 hours of aeration; started off real tight according to RL), so could offer more with cellaring. Notably, I enjoyed this without much palate fatigue, although the new oak still irks me. A huge victory for young Bordeaux in my books.
