For the money, an outstanding value claret that sends some of the famed / named houses to Coventry.
Pantone 209 with good legs in the glass, warm nose, wonderful dry mouthfeel, silky firm tannins, lovely aftertaste. Always a pleasure to imbibe a Chaignes creation.
Some Wild Geese for Dad’s Birthday.
Perhaps a bit over the hill, not quite vintage Lynch-Bages.
It was a bit thin with a rusty colour around the edges.
Nonetheless, a nice nose and you could taste the remnants of a more complex or fuller texture.
Acceptable enough, soft sweet fruit.
‘Bottled for Febvre at Alzey germany’. Nondescript bulk wine from Chile.
Wineonline Pot Luck using Febvre liquidation stock so thankfully we won’t have to face up to it again.
Grapes from Negotino in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) and bottled in Slovenia.
High alcohol (14%), this was a nice find in the wineonline.ie potluck sale.
One to watch, though they need a label designer – there is a competency in creating a nice wine here.
Would I have bought this off the shelf? Probably not but I’m glad it came in the wineonline Pot Luck sale.
Earthy Cab Sav, lots of fruit, dry finish.
Nice philosophy, if you can read the label after a glass then you can have another glass. Named after a plough.
Wineonline Pot Luck EUR125 per case of 12
Slightly thin berried oakey vanilled Claret. Pleasant nonetheless. This is a Tesco wine, I wonder if they offload their bin ends to wineonline?
I liked this, big refined Cab Sav from Chile.
