Château Gigault

Cuvée Viva Premières Côtes de Blaye Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Vintage 2011 / brown rim, cardinal red colour, very classic smell with vannila, stable, laurel, cassis, true to type #bordeaux Lovely taste (after a few hours in decanter) this wine rises above its modest AOC #blayecôtesdebordeaux tasted blind it can easily be mistaken for higher placed wines. Bravo! / paired with a steak and shitake — a year ago

Château Cap Saint-Martin

Premières Blaye Cotes de Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Vintage 2017 / Oenologist Pierre Ardoin from the University of Bordeaux owns a wine estate on the right bank, 2 km away from the city of Blaye. From his 22 ha he uses only one for the white wine made from #sauvignonblanc #blayecôtesdebordeaux #bordeaux A very expressive smell with buxus, wagonloads of gooseberry. It’s a wine that fools my brain (springtime!). Very vivid, good acidity. Quaffable! Very true to type sauvignon blanc. Frivolous. Partnered it with a salad with smoked chicken, mango, walnuts and pomegranate. — a year ago
