Deep ruby in colour; cedary, spicy, blackberry nose; medium to full bodied, dry, firmly structured, earthy, blackberry flavour with herbal and licorice notes. Hold for a couple of years.
Light body with delicate notes of truffles, sour cherries and raspberries with fresh acid and fine tannins. Will please the Burgundy lover seeking for typicity and authencity at a good price. Just delicious!
Pure ripe notes of dark cherries and plum with black licorice structured by firm chalky tannins and balanced by fresh acid. A pleasant touch of cedar lifts the aromas. Still tight with moderate finish. If you thought Bordeaux no longer offered great value, think again. This wine shines with lamb but will benefit from further ageing; 7 to 10 years, I think.
First you smell a wave of sous bois and mushroom. Then, once you taste it, those aromas are lifted by crunchy sour cherries and raspberry notes. Light body with fine chalky tannins. Juicy and easy to drink. Delicious with duck confit.
Tasted in January, when no longer nouveau. Medium-deep purple-red colour. Strong nose of bubble-gum, grapey Gamay. Light bodied with high acidity: just what a good nouveau should deliver. But not the best of vintages; the fruit is a bit thinner and less in-your-face than one might wish.
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend. From a celebrated estate in the south of France, which gives a very deep garnet color and a ripe nose of cassis, black cherry and some toast in the background. Medium bodied and nicely balanced, tasting of blackcurrant and raspberry with a firm tannic structure—like a ripe fruity claret. Value. Drink up.
