Happy Easter! Celebrating this beautiful day with this lovely Bordeaux. A full nose of cassis, new leather, tobacco, black raspberries, blackberries, oak, a hint of mint, boysenberries, bay leaf, cedar, and boeuf bourguignon. Very classic Bordeaux on the palate with chewy fruit – blackberries and black raspberries as well as cedar, leather, bay leaf, and some savory notes.

Free the grapes this Wine Wednesday with this lovely, biodynamic Beaujolais! Bubblegum, cranberries, and twigs on the nose. Similar on the palate with a nice, fresh tartness. An enjoyable and fun Gamay.

2017 Château Peybonhomme-les-Tours “Le Blanc Bonhomme”

At attention for this lovely white Bordeaux. A nice and dry white that’s a solid example of the region with lovely lemon, apple, and pear notes and stony minerality. Pair this with some grilled fish and thank me in the morning.
