Château de la Négly

La Falaise Coteaux du Languedoc 2016

Stage 10 #tourdefrance 2019 into beautiful Albi. It was hot so we had this white Languedoc. Roseanne, Marsanne, and Bourboulenc. Ripe and rich with a bit of funky herbal notes that take you away from th Rhone. Enjoyable but odd. — 4 months ago

Le P'tit Barriot Le Clot de l'Origine Red Blend

Rustic syrah for stage 17 of #tourdefrance as they climb the Pyrenees. A bit of Brett and meaty funk. Not great in our really warm weather. Switched to the stage 18 white ;) — a year ago

Saering Alsace Grand Cru Riesling 2015

Stage 6 of #tourdefrance what a great Grand Cru Riesling. Hits all the right notes, green apple, petrol, some wax in the finish. Long full mouth and finish. Great expression of Alsace. — 4 months ago

La Jasse Castel

El Abanico Pays D'Herault 2015

Deep in the mountains for stage 18 of #tourdefrance. Big blend of chardonnay, Roussanne, Grenache blanc, and more. Fruit driven, ripe, and long finish. Surprised me. Could have been a CA Rhône blend with the ripeness. — a year ago

La Reserve d'O Terrasses Du Larzac Syrah Grenache 2015

For stage 15 of #TourdeFrance into Carcassone, we played the Castle while watching the show. Bright cherry on this Languedoc. But flavors a bit muddled. Nothing to really stand out. — a year ago

Pellin S.A.

Méthode Ancestrale Vin du Bugey-Cerdon

Something new for stage 12 #tourdefrance to celebrate the grand climb of Alpe d'Huez. Off dry sparkler. Pleasant flavor and good mousse but prefer dry bubbles myself. — a year ago

Brasserie d’ Achouffe

Chouffe Houblon Dobbelen IPA Tripel

Start of #tourdefrance 2019. Stage 1 starts in Belgium. Bright and refreshing Belgian Ale in a familiar CA IPA style. Nice little quaff of Chouffe. — 4 months ago

Prieuré Saint-Jean de Bébian

La Chapelle de Bébian Languedoc Grenache Blanc Blend

Finished the big mountains with an epic stage for 19 of #tourdefrance starting down in the Languedoc and climbing. This was really nice white wine. Again, a lot of body, but this more balanced than yesterday. Good long finish with honey, white peach, raisin. Nice wine. — a year ago

Cornas Syrah 2015

Stage 13, #tourdefrance hits the Rhône where we try a deep, inky syrah from Cornas. Looks hot out there, stay safe. This one with a bit of Brett, iodine, and blood. Settled out with deep fruit and smoked meats. — a year ago
