With Goat Cheese

Flying Goat Cellars

Nielson Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

This is a new one to me… 2 hour decant left me happy as this wine has a smooth and silky texture with ripe cherry and Asian spice notes. — 23 days ago

Château Bellefont-Belcier

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

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.

91 points.

$60.

Anselmo Mendes

Muros Antigos Monção e Melgaço Vinho Verde Alvarinho 2021

When in Portugal drink Anselmo Mendes… from the local mini mart…so savory, tart, & begging for food…a few digestif biscuits & some local goat cheese, this sings. Medium bodied, & so not for the faint of heart. — a day ago

Snoop Dogg Cali Red Petite Sirah Blend

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

Domaine de Saint-Just

Coulée de St-Cyr Saumur Chenin Blanc 2012

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.

M. Chapoutier

Muscat de Beaumes de Venise 2016

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

Domaine de la Pépière

Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie 2021

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
