2009 Château Tour Baladoz Le Centenaire Saint-Émilion Grand Cru, France, Bordeaux - Wine Review

Grade: 
A
Score: 
96

What a treat to try this.  It has been difficult finding anything out about the wine.  Apparently it is from a small vineyard that is planted on its original root stocks and over 100 year

Grade:

Score:

Pale but vibrant ruby in color.  The nose has some slight cherries and a bit of rhubarb.  A nice foam with a lot of little bubbles.  On the palate, this is good but lacks depth espec

2015 Château Thivin Côte de Brouilly Cuvée Godefroy, Beaujolais - Wine Review

Grade: 
A

A bit lighter in style (truer?) than most of the other 2015 Beaujolais I tasted.  To me, that was a good thing.  Purple/ruby in color.  The nose is very tight at first but then opens

Grade: 
A

Purple and opaque in color.  The nose has black cherries, and black olives with some black raspberries.  Again, it reminds me of the northern Rhone (not a bad thing).  Very smooth.&n

Grade: 
A-
Score:

Purple/ruby in color.  Bright.  The nose takes a moment then shows black cherries, some candied qualities.  Someone said butterscotch, and that is close.  With more air, black c

2012 Patrick Piuze Chablis Premier Cru Les Forêts

Grade: 
A-
Score:

Gold in color.  A bit deeper, probably saw some new oak.  The nose is dusty with some lemon and spice.  On the palate, this is a very rich wine.  Very good, if to me, un-Chablis
