Château de la Dauphine

Fronsac Merlot Cabernet Franc 2015

Wow! Big and beautiful. Ripe raspberry, blackberry, black plums, some leather and smoke. Long finish with a perfect balance. I would never know the alcohol is 14.5.. — a year ago

Anne Boisson

Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2019

Classic, restrained Meursault nose - yellow fruit, lemon peel, a hint of green hazelnut, just a touch of wood. Fresh & precise. Taugt.
On the palate this shows depth & precision and yet this is all a really nice Meursault, just not in name.
Love the tension & balance. And the really long, fresh, light yet persistent finish.
A brilliant ‘simple’ Bourgogne Blanc.

Gnarly Head

1924 Limited Edition Double Black Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Someone said it almost tastes like a red blend and they were right! I don't know what it is about the bourbon barrel wines, but so far, I love them. — a year ago

Bodegas Godeval

Godello 2020


Very Impressive - particularly given the $12 price point. A chameleon on the nose w/appealing citrus fruit interspersed w/herbaceousness, kinda grassy yet floral but also a stony, briny marine influence. Great complexity, very engaging & equally impressive on palate w/silky sexy mouthfeel nicely integrated acidic backbone. Bit more austere on mid palate fruit wise, but great minerality and clean refreshing finish. I could drink this a few times a week. — a year ago
