Les Carrètals Minervois Carignan 2017

Slight reduction at first, but the ample, vivid red and purple fruits take over on the nose, and charm you right away with plum and blackberry scents. Glossy black licorice, and a licorice texture on the palate, plus a resonant, lightly toasted cacao note. Also tamarind, fruit leather, and salted caramel on the finish. Spicy tannins linger, and a hint of confectionary, exotic perfume emerges only after an hour or so. Subtle shades of purple extraction on this oh so precise, oh so Burgundian wine. A master class in Carignan. Just stunning. — 20 days ago

Morgon Gamay 2018

N: Shape shifting between cherries & Strawberries w mineral cut. No heaviness.
P: Strawberry heaven, some earth, very alive palate, refreshing. You could go through a bottle fast. Very glou-glou.

Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Ripe style. Good acid and minerality to balance a slightly tropical sweetness on the finish. Middle is a bit thin, but enjoyable overall. — 2 months ago

Grande Cuvée Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Big viscous style, with candied lemon nose, lemongrass, and lemon verbena, lime zest, quince; elderberry blossom. Creamy mouthfeel shows pith and pudding of grapefruit, lime and underripe pineapple. Tangerine and its pith, chalky and dry finish shows glints of crystalline lemon and lime. Very interesting overall. — a month ago

L'Ancien Vieilles Vignes Beaujolais Gamay

Just a casual week night with a (really strong) casual Beaujolais. Not fully carbonic. Intense floral and mixed berry fruit notes with subtle granitic undertones. Concentrated berry liqueur but not hot or heavy. Solid and full of life. — a month ago
