Arcane XIX Le Soleil Grenach Blend 2015

Second tasting and still as much pleasure. Deep ruby color, with a beautiful shine. The nose is greedy, on the fruits, between juice and jam, black cherry, plum, blackberries, strawberry. Spicy and roasted notes typical of southern wines, chocolate, pepper, thyme and aromates, smoky touch. The mouth is soft, beautiful texture. Greedy and balanced with volume and flexibility. The 15 degrees are absolutely not felt. Nice finish on black fruits and licorice. To have in his cellar absolutely.

Deuxième dégustation et toujours autant de plaisir. Robe rubis profonde, au bel éclat. Le nez est gourmand, sur les fruits, entre jus et confiture, cerise noire, prune, mûres, fraise. Notes épicées et torréfiées typique des vins du sud, chocolat, poivre, thym et aromates, touche fumé. La bouche est moelleuse, belle texture. Très gourmand et équilibré avec du volume et de la souplesse. Les 15 degrés ne se font absolument pas sentir. Très belle finale sur les fruits noirs et réglisse. A avoir dans sa cave absolument.

Val de Mer Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay

Oak butter, olive, green apple smell, taste has a really tart acidic bite, meatiness that creates a complex full linger of the described flavors — 3 years ago

Reserve Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2018

This wine gives clarity… a clear understanding that most of the pinot noirs i’ve drunk in the past few weeks are rather bad.  Well, not bad…this is simply in another stratosphere. Jammy, medium acidity with a finish of pear and vanilla — 5 months ago
