Grappe Diem Blaye Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

2019 vintage. This is the red "Grappe Diem" Blaye. Jérôme Eymas gained winemaking experience in both New World (Australia, Chile) and Old World (Switzerland, Champagne, Côte Rôtie) before taking over the family estate. This "Grappe Diem" is a selection of the best plots with old Merlot (75%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (25%) vines. Intense cherry and blackberry aromas, slightly jammy, but balanced by a fresh almost minty touch. Concentrated bright fruit and spices with good acidity balancing the high alcohol (15% abv.). Long warm spicy finish. Serve slightly cool at 16°C to keep the alcohol in check, the ripe tannins have no problem with that. Sexy Bordeaux indeed. Note: in the best vintages this estate also produces a confidential high end 100% Merlot cuvée called "Le Secret". — a month ago

La Varoche Extra Brut Champagne Blend

I definitely preferred his La pouillotte, which we had recently. Both seem to be 80/20 Meunier / Chardonnay. Both extra brut. Seems the Pouillote sees a bit more time on the lees and the vines average 45 years vs. 35. — a month ago

Cuvée Gaïa Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine Melon de Bourgogne 2018

Probably the best Muscadet around. Bought a six pack to try this. Had hoped to be blown away but still standing both feet on the ground. Nice blue wax closure though — a month ago

Prestige Fût de Chêne Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

2005 vintage. Talented winemaker Jérôme Eymas doesn't produce a wine under this "Prestige" label anymore, but at the time it was a premium wine and it shows the ageing potential of his wines. A blend of Merlot (75%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (25%) from the best grapes of his oldest vines, aged for 12 months in oak. Attractive nose of strawberry jam, dried herbs and a hint of leather. Fully mature and well-balanced with a soft mouthfeel, a certain complexity and good length. Drinking beautifully now, probably at its peak. Abv. 13%. — 17 days ago

Not related, Eymas is a rather common name over here.
