weekend wines – week 28 2017

This weekend, after the must try harder of last weekend – full marks! Even the 2009 ‘swissie’ was a lovely bottle!

2007 Camille Giroud, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Les Cazetiers
Hmm – this was still too young when I last opened one – but no more! The nose deep, seemingly textured with dark and enticing layers of fruit. The palate still has a little muscle but it’s much more lithe and supple with layers of delicious flavour – here darkly fruited too, but just so yum. A wine that was drunk rather quickly – always a great sign!
Rebuy – Yes

2015 Château Saint Amour, Saint Amour
Deep coloured – a fabulously floral melding with dark cherry fruit. Even better in the mouth – a wine that promises much – aromatically – and yet still manages to easily deliver. Great wine – a Bravo 2015 without a doubt. Super stuff!
Rebuy – Yes

2015 Domaine du Moulin Berger, Juliénas
Imagine the last wine with just a little more hardness and rigour – a little added spice too – both aromatic and organoleptic and you will have a good idea of this wine. Stronger muscled, a little less giving, but altogether excellent. You should certainly enjoy the former whilst waiting for this one though…
Rebuy – Yes
