Short notes from several tastings…

January 21, 2008

2006 Lucien Crochet Sancerre “Croix du Roy” – Grassy, fresh grapefruit, gravel-driven finish. Very nice w/ goat cheese.

2006 Cavia Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza – Rich, full-bodied, easy-drinking. Well-made, softly oaked with some spice.

2005 Chateau de Villeneuve Saumur Blanc – Chenin Blanc. Light and clean w/ green apple and lively acidity.

2005 Petit Chapeau Cotes du Rhone – Opened up considerably with time – classic spicy syrah, with raspberries and blackberries. Simple, elegant, and medium-bodied.

2005 Aiguilhe Querre, Cotes de Castillon – Tough, closed and chalky. Celery and green pepper atop red some fruits. Backwards even after decanding, and overall disappointing.

2006 Ferraud Morgon, Les Charmes – Thin and light, with fruity banana, cherry and unique floral notes. Very awkward in the mouth with strong tannins and acidity. Disjointed in it’s youth and clearly not a crowd pleaser.

2003 Clos du Prieur, Languedoc – Brooding, smoky, and long, with extracted berry fruits and herbs-de-provence. The roundest and fullest (and oldest) in the bunch. Most peoples Wine-of-the-Night.
