Chateau Le Pré Du Moine

Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

For the price a pretty good #bordeaux blend - a bit lacking in depth but otherwise pleasant all around. — 7 days ago

Domaine Fleuron de Liot

Saint Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Vintage 2012 / very classic true to type #saintestephe with earthy and mineral tones in smell, as well as red summerfruit and cedar. Gave it an hour in the decanter and afterwards the taste is smooth, juicy and very quaffable. Rich wine with noble characteristics. #bordeaux Paired it with entrecôte and later with gruyère cheese. — 3 months ago

La Révélation Des Vignobles Denis Lafon Premières Côtes de Blaye Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Vintage 2005 / still powerfull and not totally a Point... red fruit, taste with good concentration. 13 y old #merlot quite velvety taste. #Blaye #bordeaux that is comparable with Saint Emilion - in my modest opinion 🙃 I love it. — 5 months ago

@Peter van den Besselaar this wine is a yearly buy for our group. Always in a perfect spot. The 2005 from Magnum even flirted with perfection a year ago

Château Cap Saint-Martin

Premières Côtes de Blaye Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Vintage2015 / what a seductive smell... even so young... most merlot, cabernet sauvignon... clay and limestone soil... 50 km away north of the city of Bordeaux. Pierre Ardoin is an oenologist at the University. Seductive red fruits in smell. An impression of plums. Vibrant and velvety taste. No need to cellar 😉 when the wine is so good at the moment. #blaye #bordeaux Tasted with a pasta porcini. Good combination. — 5 months ago

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 — 3 months ago

Château Cap Saint-Martin

Cuvée Prestige Premières Côtes de Blaye Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Vintage 2015 / Mostly #merlot from selected plots in the 22 ha vineyard, with #cabernetsauvignon. Yesterday the regular cuvee was more pleasant with frivolous red fruit. Today after 24 hours aeration the bouquet of this wine is more open: pleasant spicyness and impression of cherries and plums. The cedar smell of sigarboxes. And my God such a velvety taste, roundness in excelsis! This wine has potential to be cellared but it’s super seductive now. #blaye #bordeaux Partnered it with dry aged entrecote, forest mushrooms and red wine sauce. — 5 months ago
