  • Château des Erles Fitou Cuvée des Ardoises 2009

    Snoothrank:

    I bought three bottles of this wine from the website ... for £17.Fitou is an AOC created in 1948,although viticulture in this area goes back to before the Romans, for red wines from the area around the village of that name about 15 miles north of Perpignan close to the Leucate salt lake and stretching inland up to the mountains. It is surrounde... Read More

  • Château Rolland-Maillet Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This little-known, modest estate has produced a fine effort here- there is much to like on the nose what with bright, sweet cherry in abundance. On entry, this wine is velvety-smooth, balanced (dissipated tannin) and with a full, creamy mouth-feel. Could last a couple more years but seems perfect now. 88 points. Read More

  • Fitou Aoc Mont Tauch 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Berry taste. It's surprising that this wine wasn't aged in oak, because it has a full flavor. Slight taste of butter - that must be the terroir, because a few of the Languedoc-Roussillon I've tasted reminded me of butter. Very interesting. I would buy this, yos.92/100 Read More

  • Cap 42 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Oak and vanilla comes out right off the bat followed by some forest aromas- pine. Licorice, cloves, black currant and dark cherry comes through after swirling and smelling again. The taste comes through as sweet with a nice tannic finish. Well balanced with the sweetness, acidity, tannins, and oak. Would go well with grilled steak- not a heavy r... Read More
