Very good wine with cheese and jazz — 18 days ago
It is time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.
This is a very tasty Merlot based blend from Saint Emilion.
Full-bodied with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with nice complexity.
Showing blueberries, black plums, cooked cherries, cola, chocolates, light vanilla, oak, light vegetables, herbs and black pepper.
This 5 year old is still young and needs three to five years in the bottle to mature. Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.
I had it a few months ago and this time I gave it 24 hours to open up in the bottle. Much better this way.
Good by itself or with food. I enjoyed it with Camembert cheese and crackers.
A blend of 68% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc.
15% alcohol by volume.
$60. — 12 days ago
One of my favorites ! Great price and pairs incredibly well with medium rare steaks, melted cheese, and bread. Bring it over to a dinner with friends and amaze everyone with this gem. — 6 days ago
Limes, minerals, butterscotch, goat cheese, some oak in the distance. Despite its age (10 yrs) this thing still has rocking acidity. Citrus fruit, minerals and a touch of oak and ML.
So good. I wish I had more. — a month ago
Light, summer, with cheese — 9 days ago
Can’t say I’d reach for a sweet fortified muscat by choice, but this wasn’t too bad. Expectedly rich with notes of ripe exotic fruits and candied citrus peels. While there was not much going on beyond that, it did go exceedingly well with some blue cheese. Having said that, I would have preferred to have matched the cheese with the sweet energy of a Spatlese or grandoise of a Sauternes. — 9 days ago
The all-reliable! Always fresh, crisp, and full of energy. The 2021 entry-level Pepiere was all that but with a little more fruit power than expected, which worked well with the rich cheese pairing (Brie and Brillat-Savarin). Love how it still hits it out of the park on the salinity front. — 9 days ago
