Terres Amoureuses Haute Vallée Chardonnay 2013

Vintage 2013 / Wednesday Meatballsday (2) / today a house favorite Meatballs with chicory stewed in beer - a Flemish recipe / so often it is advised to open a relative simple red wine with meatballs, but why not white? This Limoux from 85% chardonnay and 15% mauzac does the trick. It has a few bottle years which gives it a golden reflection. Smell with a smoky touch, impressions of tropical fruit like ananas and a royal buttery taste. — 2 days ago

New label on the 2018... this is great; reminds me of my beloved Els Jelipins Rosé but maybe a little shorter... fresh, perfectly ripe raspberries. Running on rails 💪🏽 — 16 days ago

Cuvée Constance Côtes du Roussillon Villages Carignane Grenache 2015

This wine is perfectly aged for tonight. Needs a few years, and it will shine, like tonight.

Smells of blackberry prune preserves.

Tastes of Ripe bush fruit, oregano, super juicy, well rounded mouthfeel, soft, feathery tannins that mingle swimmingly well with the acid and stave.
Great wine, great price. Just needs to sit for a hot minute.

Les Vignes Oubliees Terrasses Du Larzac

Upon recommendation from the wine ship guy, i opened this 2-3 hours before tasting, which was good, except for tge fact that it got too warm. I popped it back in the fridge for 20 minutes and then it was perfect. Very fruit forward and fresh with a nice structure despite its youth (2017 tasted in August 2019). All the guests loved it. — 2 days ago

Domaine de Chamans (Hegarty Chamans)

Open Now Minervois Red Blend 2008

Wow- really great! Meaty and tobacco balanced with some red fruits- plum? Vegetal on the nose, lavender and fennel maybe. Tannins still give nice body but not overly strong or big. Also some cooking spices. Killer value at $8 when our friend wise bought from garagist and cellared. TY!! — 6 days ago

😯 having this in the mix with some great Burgandies and it’s a bit overpowering. Great wine. The kind I’d have everyday with a charred ribeye, but a bit much next to the burgundies and French fare. Check out the bottle. The owner of the place said and wrote on the bottle that this was his Chou Chou. I think it meant it was his favorite from his translation attempt. Super dense; blackberry, currant, pepper, and a little anise. In love with France. — 20 days ago

Mouressipe (Alain Allier)

Pitchounet Cinsault

an incredible wine! 100% Cinsault. natural, sulfur-free, modern and ancestral. Dress pulling on the pinkish gray, one wonders if it is still a red wine, we are really at the limit. Nose appetizing notes of pears, compote, vanilla, fresh sensation of fruit juice, a great drinkability. attention danger! it is a wine to drink refreshed, as an aperitif, or as a cocktail. delicious, as much as original. — 22 days ago
