I bought this bottle of wine from a shop, also called 'Le Grand Bouqueteau ' next to the car park by the entrance to Chinon castle when I visited at the end of May 2014. Chinon is an AOC created in 1937,although wine production in the area goes back ce...

Oddly herbal in a composty and medicinal king of way, I find this to be unusual but attractive in its complexity and like the other South African Syrah in this tasting this is showing a distinctive character that is very possibly distinctive South Afri...

Sweet, wet to start, then semi-dry to finish. Depending on when you pick blackberries, they can range from a little tart like a raspberry to nature's candy. This is right on the edge between the two with the lucious exterior berry taste to the slight...

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most popular and widely planted red grape varietals in the world. Part of its attraction is that it has a distinctive and very recognizable taste no matter where it is grown—which is perhaps why today we can find it in just about any wine growing region which is reasonably warm. According to Jose Vouillamoz, a bo... Read More
I've never messed around with any Bordeaux over the $15 price range, and I'm beginning to think Bordeaux is one of those wines that doesn't really have a satisfying "cheap" version. There are wines -- like Malbec -- that at $10 can make you feel like a king. But even a $15 - $20 bottle of Bordeaux can make you feel like a pauper. This wine has a... Read More
Back when I owned my win bar, I carried winemaker Ray Walsh's Capitello Brut in my shop. Thankfully, before putting my shop up for sale, I brought home several bottles of this delicious Methode Champenoise sparkling wine - saving a few for special occasions, ie: New Year's Eve. Coincidentally, three of the four sparkling wines we popped the cork... Read More
Blanc de Noir is a French term for "white wine from red grapes." Although the varietal of red grape used to make this sparkling wine isn't listed, I'm assuming the winemaker used Pinot Noir since most of the fruit comes from their estate (and King Estate is located in the Willamette Valley). I enjoyed this sparkling wine in the last few minutes ... Read More
I have tasted the New Zealand chartbuster with a couple of girls from a fashion outlet,and honestly I have tried to impress them with this wine as previously what i chose they did not like. It did not work this time either. As much as i wanted to surprise the girls with the wonderful wine they surprised me, because they did not like it. The rea... Read More

Dark ruby colour, this wine has a medium- weighted nose of red plums and fresh raspberries with a hint of saltishness and ginger. Dry, medium-bodied wine, high acidity, soft tannins that provided a good structure overall. Flavours of plum, raspberry couli, cherry with a generous pinch of smoky Welsh sea salt. An easy drinking wine good paired wi... Read More
