Château Tour du Moulin

Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

A nose of alpine berries

Decanted for 4 hours, as it’s such a young wine for this region, medium to heavier bodied with a rounded mouthfeel. Austere in its own right, this has flavors akin to raspberry, blueberry, white stone, anise acidity and firm, yet forgiving tannins.
French Merlot for the win.

Pepper Tree

Venus Block Orange Chardonnay 2014

See previous notes. They still apply. All the hallmarks of modern Australian Chardonnay. Nutty leesy aromas with rock melon notes - from the cool climate district near the city of Orange. A light to medium weight palate. Proving that the Orange/Tumbaramba district is a great area for cool climate Chardonnay with Penfolds sourcing fruit from here for their top Chardonnays like Yattarna. Also Phillip Shaw (former winemaker for Rosemount when they were famous) has set up a winery here under his own name. — a day ago

Château Margaux

Pavillon Rouge Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

Had this a couple of weeks ago. We don’t have a lot of bordeaux in our cellar, mainly because it takes so many years for them to come into their own. Case in point is this 2003. While it was reasonably approachable when young, it’s now beautifully integrated. Will have to take a look at what else we have resting down there… — 2 days ago

Oooh. Nice one. Not had their second label - hopefully a good value

Clos Labarde

St. Émilion Grand Cru 2016

Dark red purple. Abundant nose of cedar and black raspberry. Medium full palate yields black raspberry, dried plum (not prune), red licorice, light graphite. Juicy medium plus acidity. Medium plus tannins. Medium finish. Classic French food wine that’s ready for lighter cuts of beef and hearty Sud-Ouest stews (drop a cup or so in the stew to make your own Julia Childs moment!). Drink now through 2026. — 6 days ago
