Château des Jacques Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2015

Ingen standard beaujolais. Påminner mer om en cote d’or med bra struktur, röd frukt, bra syra och en hel del tanniner. — 23 days ago

Juvé y Camps

Essential Reserva Cava Xarel-lo

Vintage 2016 | Reserva | Biowine | a hommage to the grape Xarel lo, which is 100% in this Cava. Refined smell with vague yeast, citrus and a blurred impression of peach. Powerful taste with a solid body. Very high acidity. Paired yesterday with shrimp tortillas and tomato mayonaise, and for Sunday breakfast with scrambled eggs and smoked eel. I prefer this cava with food. — 2 days ago

Château Pradeaux

Bandol Mourvedre 2014

Châteaux Pradeaux is located in Bandol AOC, of Provence, France, near the magnificent coastal town of Saint Cyr-sur-Mer, situated on the Mediterranean Sea. I imagine there are breathtaking views of the azure waters from the vineyards and estate of Château Pradeaux. 🌊

Generations of the Portalis family have produced wines from this estate dating back to 1752. The land has seen devastation such as the French Revolution, Phylloxera, and World War II, and yet today it remains strong, carrying forward the family traditions, thanks to the fortitude, will, and courage of the Portalis family. 💪

👁 It is medium ruby with garnet rim variation. It has a subtle haze, perhaps because this wine was not fined nor filtered.

👃 On the nose this wine has a baked, black fruit quality, with notes of blackberry, plum, and black cherry 🍒 ; also notes of dried lavender, anise, clove, cedar, nutmeg, tobacco, leather, peat moss, meat, and barnyard.

👄 On the palate, this wine is dry. It has medium acidity, a medium(+) body, medium alcohol, high tannins, and medium(+) intensity in flavors that are consistent with the nose.

The grapes were not destemmed in the winemaking process, which has undoubtedly contributed to the strong and grippy tannins experienced in the glass. This wine benefits from decanting and could also benefit from more time in the bottle. 👍

In sum, this wine tells a story of commitment, perseverance, and respect for the land from which it’s cultivated. It’s made with minimal intervention and has 95% Mourvèdre and 5% Grenache. 📚
