    Chateau Venus Graves 2011 Lidl

    … My adventures in European style discounter shopping continue. Lidl has one big advantage so far, they sell salted pistachios in their shells by the scoop rather than in little mini packs, this makes them far more affordable, if not less scoffable. Surely they’re healthier than chocolate and you do have to put a little bit of work in to eat each…

Still primary, pure and incredibly dense this needs time to come together, but it could be a 30 year wine, and it’s fabulously good. 95/100 Château Mouton Rothschild Petit Mouton 2005 Bordeaux, France…

    Chateau Béard La Chapelle, 2008 Saint-Émilion Grand Cru, Bordeaux

    …This beautiful bottle of Bordeaux comes from Saint-Émilion, a French region known for its Merlot-based blends. The focus on Merlot means that Saint-Émilion wines are softer and generally are ready to drink at an earlier age. I was excited when I purchased a duo of this Chateau Béard La Chapelle for $27 each. After all, I was getting a Saint…

    A Bordeaux family of wines

    … Château Léoville Las Cases of Domaines Delon http://www.domaines-delon.com/en/accueil.html Finding recherché in the classicism of a family run wine business is obscured by today’s speculative boardroom market of classified growths, futures and the wheeling of the négociant. When Bordeaux comes to town the connection is by and large a sterile…

    Bordeaux: Time Out

    …This is just a quick ‘heads up’ to all Winedoctor subscribers that I doubt I will be able to make any further posts this week, as I am flying out to Bordeaux this evening. When I visit Bordeaux, such as for the primeurs, it is not unusual for me to suspend site updates, but in their place I usually update the Winedr blog instead, writing less…

    Wine of the Week 19 – a superior Bordeaux Supérieur

    …Vineyards in Entre-Deux-Mers. I’m not a great one for the cheaper end of Bordeaux, the sort of wine that was described as ‘luncheon claret’ when I joined the wine trade. Red Bordeaux more than any other type of wine really ought to make you stop, think and smile. Claret – any red Bordeaux – can be the most thought provoking, elegant and refined…
