Great vintage for this. Super stoney nose. So so stoney. Smoke. Some red berry fruit. But so stoney. Gorgeous balance and so so juicy with that stoniness coming through with huge tannins that are so velvety. Pure. Juicy. Gorgeously defines red berry fruit. Amazing inner mouth aromas. Awesome freshness and acidity. Long. Amazing wine. What an estate. By far the best Cahors. Ripe vintages key here. This is superb. — 20 days ago

Château d'Aydie (Famille Laplace)

Odé d'Aydie Madiran Tannat 2016

Deep ruby. Aromas of sweet black fruit with hint of anise iron and toasted brioche. Tastes mildly of dusty fruit with a meaty edge. Good sharpness and big bold tannins. Great chewy finish. Very together. For me this has a huge impact and I love it. — 12 days ago

Domaine Bordenave

Cuvée des Dames Jurançon Gros Manseng 2007

100% Petit Manseng. Solid not great. Focused fruits. Not too sweet. Acidity is holding up. A bit of bitter on the finish which detracted from it. — 12 days ago
