Pavillon De Taillefer

Château Taillefer

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Aged beautifully! Nice nose with some tertiary notes but limited. Still enough fruit there some dark cherries, milk chocolate.
Tanins smoothly integrated. Nice drink on a stormy sunday afternoon!

And on it goes. We like this a lot, but it’s a bit simple tonight. Maybe a bit “quiet”? Hope everyone is enjoying.... — 2 months ago

Lots of fun bottles were popped at Al’s hosting this past weekend for his birthday celebration. All were served blind. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 6 reds and 1 dessert wine.

Fantastic showing. Unmistakably Rhône. It smells of charred potpourri, spicy rhubarb and tea leaves. On the palate, it was light and nimble with a decidedly black pepper like finish. I was very confident this was southern Rhône CdP as I didn’t get any smoked meat or iron type notes like I typically do with northern Rhône. Just a hint of sweetness in the black cherry core to bring out the acidity and smooth the tannins. I called this southern Rhône CdP from the mid 2000s.

Clos de Pavillon Fleurie Gamay 2015

In order to be fair to this wine, I have to put aside predispositions about what Beaujolais SHOULD be like. Because this is a monster wine. Fully saturated color. Intense nose has dark crunchy dark cherry/berry fruit, intense cracked granite minerality. Massively concentrated flavors in the mouth. Tannic too. While finesse isn’t a word I’d use with this one, it avoids the blocky heaviness of a lot of 15s. Peppery heat peaks through in the finish. Pretty decent acidity. — a month ago

I tend to like these deep Beaujolais. Haven’t had this one but I like what I’m reading

Rosé Les Collines Faugères 2018

"the geology and elevation give bright aromatics in fresh toothsome flavors to this rose wine, a hand-harvested blend of Cinsault 40%, Grenache 30%, Syrah 20%, Mourvedre 10%. It's rose but it's not your typical pinkish hue. It's paler, like wallpaper bleached by the sun. you will find hints of black fruit, a product of the razor sharp schist rock that makes up the top layer of soil in this region. aficionados of the language dark region instantly spot that telltale trace of garrigue - the bushy fragrant vegetation that grows on the Mediterranean." — 3 months ago

Domaine du Pavillon de Chavannes

Cuvée des Ambassades Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2017

Well balanced and light to medium body with some tannins to counter bright acidity. I get cedar, warm cooking spices, and roasted pepper, fresh (not canned/sauced) cranberry. Taste lingers some, nicely. — 15 days ago

From a slice of land in the Pavillon, their other top Fleurie Cuvee. This is old school and awesome. What a nose. Big huge blackberry and cherry fruit. Also some licorice. Just jumps out at ya. Also loads of tweed jacket and even some watermelon. So vibrant and expressive. Earth and mineral frame the fruit so well. Concentrated and juicy wirh amazing sappy purity and fruit is all skin now but I’m sure will open up as it airs. Tight now but it is all there. Finish is short initially then slowly expands with air. I’ll be back with more details soon. Once it opens more. — 2 months ago
