A truly great wine. Nose is cherries. And cherry flowers. Palate is literally the first minute of the first day of cherry season. So fresh and juicy it’s almost painful. A hint of licorice. Spicy. This is young. No idea what this will taste like in five years. Just a stunningly well made wine. Very very distinctive. Bought from Fass Selections. — 21 hours ago
Stoked on this bottle right now. Under $20, terroir driven, and well made. Not the epitome of CF but not a bottle of shrill either. Smoke, cigar ash, turned earth, cedar, wet leaves coupled with dried black raspberries and cherry. Loads of black pepper and rocky minerality too. The freshness is what surprised me, this is alive and well and showing great. — 10 days ago
Another great Le Bourg found on a wine list. Unfortunately their last btl. Dark cherry, earth, tobacco, mineral, dried herbs, olive & cigar ash are some of the notes. Always interesting & complex. This is a great vintage for Clos Rougeard. Full bodied & drinking very young. Would benefit with a 2-3 hr decant. — 21 hours ago
The night after Thanksgiving I am still giving thanks to family and friends for the great gifts they bring me. Tonight I have opened the 2015 Bernard Baudry Chinon Les Granges.
On the nose there is roasted red pepper, raspberry sauce, ripe strawberries, some matchbox, herbal notes and a bit of soil background.
On the palate the green bell pepper is ever present, sour cherry, tart raspberry, under ripe plum, an herbal note and crushed gravel.
This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity, medium smooth tannin that goes into the medium to long tingly finish. Continue having a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 17 days ago
