Château Bel Air la Royère

Fig.10 Malbec 2018

2018 vintage. Small production of pure Malbec by one of Blaye's top producers, Château Bel-Air La Royère. Deep purplish colour. Intense perfume with the typical Malbec violets much more pronounced than in the 2017. Layers of ripe black fruit, fresh acidity and a long spicy finish. A showcase for the potential of Malbec in Blaye (and Bourg). Highly recommended if you are lucky enough to find a bottle. — a month ago

Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

With a nose of dried black currants,
this SA Cab has layers of pomegranate, fig, black olive, tobacco, cacao. The heavy body of this wine is awakened and lifter by the orange zest acidity.
The lingering tannins structure is firm and gripping. Ripe and ready to drink.

Boy Meets Girl

Sauvignon Blanc Sémillon 2020

Nice, dry. Unoriginal but pleasant enough. Wouldn’t complain if I was served it, but wouldn’t seek it out. Purchased via Naked. — 16 days ago


Toro Tinta de Toro 2016

This is what I imagine a good Toro would be: a rich and powerful rendition of Tempranillo. Blackberry, plum, licorice, fig, incense, espresso, and earth. Exuberant and dense on the palate but there is enough acidity to carry the weight. Gripping tannins.
From the founder of Bodega Numanthia, and I think this is better than the Numanthia. Wish I bought more.

Réserve Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2012

Fig and raspberry. Hints of rooibos tea. At a very good moment to drink. This wine requires patience to enjoy. It stays a little bit heady and awkward until 5-6 years from the vintage year. Now it is fully balanced and integrated. — 2 days ago
