|Region:||France » Loire » Touraine » Chinon|
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...

King of the zinfandels, all hail. Surprised the reviews are low, but to each their own, here are some points I'd like to highlight. A full-sensory experience, this zin has fragrance, colour and taste in its pocket. Not only does the wet wine wash we...

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...

Garnacha has arrived. Wine drinkers demand varietal Garnacha bottles and ask for the grape by name. Garnacha delivers versatility and character. Her gently styled dark fruit flavors pair with a broad range of dishes, and stand on their own. Now that we’ve established Garnacha as a go-to grape, we turn our attention to location. Where will we fin... Read More
Interestingly, found a Montebello edged out a Dunn from the same mature vintage recently, though both could've been WOTN, with very tough competition from the Musigny. Two meals, one seafood and white, the 2nd red meat and red wine. Every single bottle gets my *buy* recommendation. Interestingly, was down in the tropics just north of the equator... Read More
The writer for the first example writes a lot about CA and the West and the Pacific and Mexico. The book this comes from is even centered in southern Orange County, JD. Stephen King is *not* cool SoCal hip. ;-( Read More

Enjoying an anchovy and balsamic caper pasta dish with, of all things, an Acrobat 2012 Pinot Noir that was recommended to me and for the price was really very good - a complete and pleasant surprise, though it shouldn't be.King Estate bought them and bottles entry level PN, PG and Rose of Pinot under the Acrobat label. I've now had 2 of the 3 a... Read More
I've been really bad about posting updates on the house. Structurally, we are finished, and all the walls are painted and floors finished. We have stairs, about to have our big Tansu thing in the middle of them, And we've got a dining room that seats twenty pretty easily. Maybe more. (Didn't OT say all that garden building was making him lose ... Read More
Barolo may be Italy’s most famous red but surprisingly it hails from a very small vineyard region. Tucked into the top northwest corner, just south of the medieval town of Alba in the heart the Langhe region of Piemonte, it’s barely 8 kilometres wide. The vineyards are breathtaking. The snowcapped Alps form a distant backdrop to a series of hill... Read More
MJ, how much was that high-end tasting down in Florida? I bet $75 or so. The 2009 Roca Vespera Blend sounds very tasty. Yesterday we headed back to the district for a performance at the Arena Stage called 'All the Way'; it was about President Johnson after he became president upon the assanation of President Kennedy. Very powerful and an exc... Read More
Think you know everything about wine in France? Think again. Here comes an unheralded region to titillate your palate in brand new ways. Roussillon has been a bastion of Catalan culture since the mid-seventeenth century. The amphitheater-shaped region borders Spain, so it’s no wonder the local dialect sounds more like Spanish than French. Cultur... Read More
