Old World on Snooth

  • Vista de Régua Caráter 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Fun and youthful purple color in the glass with an lightly herbal and fresh red cherry, red berry fruit aroma. Pronounced flavors of ripe cranberry, raspberry and cherry in the mouth with a touch of floral character as well, some licorice and tart acidity to keep the palate light and fresh. Read More

  • Louis Bernard Costieres de Nimes Blanc 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This very modest white from the mouth of the Rhone is made from a combination of typical grape varieties of the Val du Rhone. Pepper is evident on entry along with tropical fruit such as pineapple and pear. This wine has a slight hardness associated mostly with youth, but is tasty and an excellent bargain - having been reduced by half price by... Read More

    Wine review by Shai003


  • James it's not an elementary question. Originally oak barrels were used for storage. There was no such thing as stainless steel a thousand years ago. Oak was used for ships to keep water out, so why not for barrels to keep water in? To bend the oak staves into the round shape, the wood is heated over a fire. Among other things, the heat creates ... Read More

  • Ricco Rosso Carletto 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Crushed violets, menthol, and cranberries on aromas greet the nose. You'll pick up on the unmistakably Italian terroir straight away. There's a small hint of funk there as well. Easy-going, light tannins quietly enter the palate. Deep purple plums and blackberries parade through the mouth for eons. The finish razzle-dazzles with chocolate chip m... Read More

  • Clos Laborie Margaux 2001

    Snoothrank:

    This bottle was part of a lot I bought on the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/80826.Margaux is the largest appellation on the Medoc peninsular and a very prestigious one with 18 cru classe in the famous 1855 classification.Chateau Tayac is not one of them but is a respected cru bourgeois estate.

  • Partage de l'Argenteyre 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A modest Medoc second wine from Begadan (Chateau l'Argenteyre) this product is typical of the region. Cassis, cherry and roasted coffee greet the nose with the entry dominated by more red currant. Body is slightly thin with slightly coarse tannin (this is after all a second wine). not bad for the price. 86 points. Read More
