La Bastide Blanche

Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2017

Första dagen upplevde jag det som en besk eftersmak - efter ngr dagar i kylskåp o nu i lite mindre glas så mötte det syran i tabbouleh riktigt bra. Den kanske helt enkelt behövde tid att öppna upp sig. — 4 days ago

A unique gem from the Loire Valley in France. Produced from the rather rare Folle Blanche grape. This wine presents wonderful fruit aromas, a smooth lush mouth feel, a hint of green apple finishing with a slight effervescences. A pleasant surprise that begs for more notice. Cheers 🍷 — a month ago

Château La Tour Blanche

Donation Osiris Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2016

Vintage 2016 / Pampering ourselves with a Saturday lunch in the garden: pumpkin soup, good bread, ripe Roquefort and ripe pears. This Sauternes from sauvignon blanc, semillon and muscadelle is obviously very young (first bottle from my box). Shy smell with light impression of apricot and honey. But amazing taste already, perfect balanced wine! — a month ago

I knew I recognized that bottle. Loved this 2015. Great choice!

La Bastide Saint-Dominique

Les Hespérides Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2013

Nose has smokey dry earth, dry lavender, old licorice, dried black cherry, ripe black currant, dried blackberry and (light) dried oak.

Palate has silky dried blackberry, ripe plum, black currant jam, (light) dark chocolate, dried blueberry and light tannins. Mouth coating texture. Future bottles should be 2023+

50% Grenache & 50% Mourvédre

Paired with a bottom round beef roast, slow cooked 8+ hours with autumn root vegetables and the au jus from the roast, thickened with a little of my own tomato paste, delicious.

Thanks. Not big CdP drinkers here, as most need time to settle. Household storage bottles are recent, so they're sleeping. Have enough older versions, but they are off-site, so hard to PnP, planning required.
Not a 'new' pic, been rocking it for several weeks. Until Julia and Team push out the Android update to address the first round of bugs on their new version, I can't update it. I'm going to work thru all of the fur-kids once I have the ability to change it again.

Drappier

Carte Blanche Brut Champagne Blend

Had this NV about three years ago and tried their new batch. The Carte d'Or cuvée has a very high proportion of Pinot Noir, which is “the Drappier style.” Aromas of stone fruit and spice in a light frothy mousse. On the palate peach, plum and raspberry with citrus zest and earthy spice. Nice flow of bubbles lead to a lingering finish ending with toasty notes. From my ‘16 notes very consistent house quality style. Nice! — a month ago
