Domaine du Pegau

Plan Pegau Vin de France Red Rhone Blend

I’m equally proud and embarrassed for how cheap I found this on clearance - about $8. To be fair, Pegau is a very well respected CDP producer. I think this sees a discount in the portfolio because it’s built from multiple vintages. How many multi vintage reds do we see?

Deep dark rounded corners. Lush dark berries, cedar, and pencil with sprinkled salt and minerals with tannic inflection. I’ll take this again if I find it.

Faire la Fete

Crémant de Limoux Brut Sparkling Blend

Faire la Fête takes its cue from village of Limoux – “birthplace of bubbles” - where world’s longest running annual carnival celebration allows revelers to dance, sing, celebrate and enjoy an endless flow of sparkling wine. A blend of70% Chardonnay, 20% Chenin Blanc & 10% Pinot Noir. Clean, light aromatic nose of citrus, stone fruits and yeasty notes. Palate, ripe apple and lemon flavors, slightly creamy texture, balanced by crisp acidity and fine bubbles on lingering citrusy finish. — 8 days ago

Domaine de Baron'Arques

Vignoble Baron Philippe de Rothschild 2015

Overpriced but very good right-bank Bordeaux mixed with the Mediterranean from Limoux. Mostly an excellent expression of Merlot, the Mediterranean provides the entire finish. A little sharp in the finish, but the Rothschilds clearly know what they are doing. I’d like to taste this vintage 5 years from now, as I expecting will be spectacular then. The $50 price tag is a little steep since I can buy a Bordeaux at that price. — 11 days ago

Domaine Grand Guilhem

Corbières Blanc 2017

Slightly hazy, yeasty funk, honeydew melon, with a touch of beeswax. Smooth with impressive viscosity and building acidity. Underripe melon, lime zest and pear fruit. Finish is solid. Natural wine. Maccabeo & Grenache Blanc. Stayed at the winery May ‘18. Paired well with shrimp pasta - this is way better with food! — 8 days ago
