Château de Lascaux junior and senior

IMG_4149

Admittedly, we are comparing the top wine and the entry level wine of this Languedoc estate which isn’t really logical, but it doesn’t matter. Actually it’s not really comparing in a quality sense, but maybe just seeing how far of a way the older one has come. Read the rest of this entry »

Random Bottles Wine Tasting

Sometimes you just meet up with friends for a wine tasting without having a particular plan or theme. You just start with one bottle and pick the next one according to the moods, the appetites and desires of everyone. This was such a tasting:

The 2007 Deidesheimer Grosse Hohl GG by Mosbacher is a powerful Riesling. Vibrant and musculous, yet with enough fruit and a beautiful acidity to balance it. Nice presence and nice length. Able to compete within Germany’s Riesling top league.

Of course there were also non-corked bottles for Christmas. This 2000 Cuvée Les Secrets from Château de Lascaux was superb. Tannins were softened after 7 years but fruit was still there.

Si vous aimez les bons vins et êtes de passage à Montpellier, je peux vous recommender un bon petit restaurant dans une petite ruelle au Coeur du vieux centre ville. Le concept bien pratique des Caves Jean Jaurès veut que vous vous dirigez vers les etageres à vins une fois que vous avez choisi vos plats. Vous pouvez délors vous laisser conseiller ou étudier en toute tranquilité les etiquettes et choisir votre bouteille comme s’il s’agissait de votre propre cave. Read the rest of this entry »
