We have been in France the last couple of weeks, drinking mainly the locally produced wines, notably St. Nicholas de Bourgeuil and Reuilly, while a special mention goes out to Claude Mahoudeau, whose winery we visited and picled up some superb Touraine Sauvignon for 3 euros a bottle!

 

Flew back yesterday and gave the Singapore Airlines' Business Class selection the usual hammering - I had a glass of the 2010 William Fevre Chablis but felt it a little sour so I switched to red quite early on.  This was a stellar Medoc, 2008 Ch Preuillac Cru Bourgeois, classic blend of Merlot and Cabernet grapes, smooth, good fruits and the right balance of tannin to give it a decent bite.

Tonight, I have been mainly drinking Tesco Simply Garnacha 2012

.

From the Campo de Borja DO in Spain. It's £4.49 and an absolute steal. Bright Raspberry Fruit and grippy tannins.

Still working my way through all my bottles of Virginia wine. 


Please buy my books so I can send my girl to a decent school.

Wine's not much of a hot topic around here these days, but for me it is an almost-everyday experience.  Latest bottles were K Cellars 2013 Milbrandt Wahluke Slope Syrah (Washington) and Tablas Creek 2012 Esprit de Tablas GSM Blend (Paso Robles, CA).  The K Cellars Syrah was beyond my expectations and it would certainly rate 94 or 95 points if reviewed in one of the industry publications.  The GSM from Tablas Creek, while also a good wine, paled in comparison and I would give it 89 or 90 points.  Both were consumed on Tuesday evening while in Tokyo, Japan.

Nice experience last Thursday...tried a bottle of St. Clement 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (****) at a local wine bar called The Tasting Room.  Recent bottlings weren't as enjoyable and I wondered if the divestiture by Japan's Sapporo might have lead to a decline in quality.  This one was darn good and with at $42 per bottle quite a bargain.

 

Also last Thursday at Salt Air restaurant I shared a bottle of Nickel & Nickel 2015 Carneros Chardonnay (****) with a work colleague and we agreed it was fantastic in spite of the relative youth of the vintage.  Bright, clean and sporting hints of citrus and limestone it was the perfect match to our oyster entrees.

My good deed for the year...recommending Virginia Marie Lambrix Vineyards out of Alexander Valley in California. Fantastic wines at relatively inexpensive prices.  They don't sell much to restaurants or to wine shops so if you want their stuff go here ==> http://www.vmlwine.com/home/
