  • Certan de May Pomerol 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Opened 30 minutes before aeration via Venturi. Deep (strong) dark cherry nose with a sugar note or two and some subtle (light) cedar bark. Beautiful, enticing black cherry colour just beginning to turn brick red. Entry is soft, seductive, sweet with cherry and cola predominating. Tannins are light, fading, but integrated. Finish is long and sati... Read More

  • M Chapoutier Bila-Haut Cotes du Roussillon Villages 2016

    Snoothrank:

    The Bila-Haut Cotes de Roussillons Villages Rouge is an excellent bargain year over year; Raspberry notes dominate the bouquet with just a hint of earthiness - almost like Sirop de Framboise. Entry carries the Grenache element with a slightly rustic raspberry/plum flavor - but balanced and only slightly warm on the finish. This is a very sound ... Read More

  • I'd have to admit that I don't really have an everyday wine as such - although, if not too, too dear, I'll always go for a good Premier Cru Chablis or even just a decent generic Chablis from a reputable producer (white).  There are also many cheaper alternatives in the under twenty dollar range in white Cotes du Rhone blancs that would satisfy, ...

  • Captain Morgan Long Island Ice Tea NV

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet heavens, it's a load of everything delicious I shouldn't have! Sugar, caffeine, alcohol wrapped up in a tasty package that hits all senses full tilt. Self-control becoming a problem, after the alcohol wore off, I woke up at 4 a.m. ready to build a rocketship to Mars if only I could walk a straight line to the *ahem* library first. Capta...

  • Domaine Lafage Centenaire 2015

    Snoothrank:

    This is a fat, juicy, creamy southern wine from Roussillon; with the scent of fresh pears and freshly fallen snow. On the palate, you get a panoply of sweet, spicy white fruit - like Bartlett pears and white pepper - with a touch of sweet cream. This rich vintage has produced a great wine with some aging potential (2-3 years) but no need to wai... Read More

  • Gérard Bertrand Tautavel Grand Terroir 2011

    Snoothrank:

    The reliable and good price-to-quality wines of Bertrand hit the mark again here: there is a lot of wild blueberry, service berry and sweet cherry on the nose due, no doubt to a good dose of Syrah and Mourvedre. The entry is dominated by more blueberry and cherry with a relatively smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Finish is manly (alcoholic) but satis... Read More

  • Domaine Lafage Tessellae Old Vines Côtes du Roussillon 2013

    Snoothrank:

    The "Tessellae" Old Vines offering is bigger than it's price point by 3-4 times. A superb CdR that shows red and blueberry fruits, light gamy notes, spice, pepper, floral accents. Elegant any juicy with finishing acidity and minerality, this pours really real. Drink now - Paul 91 points Read More
