M. Chapoutier

Les Vignes de Bila-Haut Côtes du Roussillon Blanc Grenache Blanc Blend 2017

Red wine from the Languedoc-Roussillon region of the vineyard of Bila-Haut from M. Chapoutier.

Wine has very deep concentration, with a very garnet color and shows signs of rim variation. Staining occurs medium to heavy, and has evidence of gas in my opinion.

It’s like a volatile acidity, yet has a moderate intensity with a devoting age assessment. It is coming to see earth character, but also cherry and black currant.

It’s a very off-dry wine, yet shows some signs of sweetness when you leave the bottle open for a while. In my opinion, the wine is not bitter at all, has Med+ tannin and same for acidity. It’s not entirely full bodied, perhaps of the ages and the decanting (not necessarily needed as the age range is between 1-3 years and the 2017 now, is a perfect companion.

Screw cap.
For $9 from K&L, this is exceptional. Presents a mineral-driven, steely nose, which transitions to the palate. Love the citrus fruits combining with delicate white flowers. Most memorable is the piercing minerality - mainly limestone. For the price, it’s unbeatable. Below $20 in the white wine class, no country touches France.

Thanks, @Kai Wright. My wife gave me an ultimatum; Eurocave (which I had) or custom cellar, but not both. I opted to build the one that you see. When this pandemic is behind us, come and tip a glass.

White Else? Roussillon Grenache Gris Macabeu

Ripe, rich, tropical, and with a healthy kick of VA that allows this wine to really punch through heavier fare. Yum. — 18 days ago

Coume de L'Olla Rouge 2016

Да. Свежий аромат, сочный, вишня, такая садовая, свежая, но при этом очень четкий но тонкий тон бочковых огурцов, и много специй, даже куркума, с нежными таннинами. высокая кислотность, но не вырви глаз, очень сбалансированное. Выпил бы бутылку один легко. И летом и зимой. — 11 days ago

Salmon rolls plus salmon colored sparkling equals the best most refreshing swim upstream. Yum yum yum. Should be New Years but it’s a Sunday!
Strawberry shortcake sparkles. Love this bottle of lilting joy. Perfect sashimi marriage partner.

Domaine Gauby

La Muntada Cotes Catalanes White Blend 2011

Wow, really impressed. We opened this a couple nights ago with homemade French onion soup - it was beautiful, and paired very well. I’ve never had an aged white wine with such an amber, almost pink, color but such a youthful nose and flavor. Still has great acidity. It seems the short maceration time really contributed a special aspect for this one. — 4 days ago

Reserve de Gassac Sélection Guibert Vin de Pays de l'Hérault White Blend 2018

Super complex and complicated. Light gold color with ample green tones. Nose has melon, apricot, and sugar. Wine has everything from lemon to grapefruit to peach/apricot to cantaloupe. Surprisingly low acidity. Just what I was hoping for and an excellent QPR for under £20! — a day ago
