Gascony on Snooth

  • Bouscasse Menhir 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Strong suggestions of unsweetened fruitblackberry, currant. Some leather or tobacco on the rear palate which makes the wine seem harsh. Some sourness. Something of a minty aftertaste. Seems to be high alcohol. I dont think I paid much for this wine, and it doesnt suck (oenophile technical word), but I doubt that I will seek out more or reco... Read More

  • From Gascony. 50% Tannat/50% Merlot Fairly pedestrian, in my view.  The good thing about Old World wines is that they don't smack you with sweet fruit.  This one has unsweetened dark berriies on the tip of the tongue but then there is leather or tobacco or something on the rear palate that just seems harsh.  Then there is some sourness and unbal...

  • Domaine du Tariquet Rose de Pressee Gascogne 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Refreshing and fun to drink. Raspberry, strawberry with bright acidity. The temps have been in the high 80's and finally 90 for several days so I served this with watermelon and it worked - wonderfully. Great little quaffer - drink now - Paul 88 points Read More

  • Domaine du Tariquet Classic 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Lithe and with a straw note and a slight separation ring this provides many citrus and melon noted with bright acidity that provides a refreshing and uplifting finish. Go ahead and buy 6 or 8 bottles of this. Paul 88 points Read More
