"An attractive nose of oak overlaying seductive dark red fruits with hints of blackcurrant leads into a complex palate with silky tannins. Soft, earthy flavours of dark cherry and currant matches silky tannins to finish."


Ambre de Maltus Bordeaux Blanc 2018

Ambre de Maltus Bordeaux Blanc is made from 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Sémillion.

Malolactic fermentation.

The wine was aged in French Oak barrels for a few month (between 6 and 8 months depending on the barrel's toastiness and cooper)

Delicious with grilled fish or grilled vegetables

Review:

"A blend of mainly Sauvignon Blanc fermented in new wood, this wine is ripe and smoothly textured. It offers hints of herbal flavors but the main thrust is towards spice and white-fruit flavors. - Roger VOSS"

Bellevue Cotes de Bordeaux-Castillon Cé Ma Cuvée 2016

SALE!


Bellevue Cotes de Bordeaux-Castillon Cé Ma Cuvée is made from 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc

The wine is made with 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. Average age of the vines is 50 years old (everything is between 40 and 60 years old).

Cé Ma Cuvée is a tribute from Michel Lydoire to his 2 daughters:
Cé is for Céline. She is like the Merlot grape varietal. Pleasant and calm.
Ma is for Marina. She is like the Cabernet Franc grape varietal. Tough and with a lot of character.

The color is deep and inky. 
The nose is spicy, fruity and oaky with some nice vanilla and coconut aromas. 
The mouthfeel is complex, with ripe red and black fruit flavors. Some spiciness and integrated oak flavors.

The wine starts as the Vieilles vignes, but some wine is aged in 500-liter American Oak Barrels for 18 months. 
They are using a mix of different toastiness for the barrels. Some high toast and some are medium toast.

This is a fun wine that can be enjoyed with any food, charbroil burgers, grilled vegetables, cheeses ... or even with dark chocolate desserts.

Review:

 2015 Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux Cé Ma Cuvée Céline Lydoire focuses this wine on Bellevue's old Merlot plots, blending in Cabernet franc from southern exposures on gravelly soils. It's her top selection, treated to 18 months in new 400-liter oak barrels; she started making it at the behest of her French customers, who wanted a step up from her cool and refreshing Cuvée Tradition. This is just as cool, but more saturated in its distinctly Castillon fruit flavor—think wild strawberries and blueberries with an earthy mineral undercurrent. That silky fruit gains its supple impression from the new oak, which boosts the textural richness. As I thought about how to score this wine, I found myself writing, "If that were from California, I'd be all over it." Absolutely. But it's also got Castillon limestone clarity. And, it's $27. Buy a case. You won't be sorry -Wine & Spirits 93 Points



Chateau des Arnauds Bordeaux Rouge 2018

Chateau des Arnauds Bordeaux Rouge is made from 100% Merlot.

The wine shows a deep red purple color and intense aromas of black fruits (blackcurrant, black cherry) with hints of liquorice. Very fruity and well-balanced. It is powerful and well structured in the mouth with round and silky tannins, ripe flavors of black fruits. Strong and a slightly spicy finish.

Grapes are coming from 30 year old vines planted on gravelly soils. 

The land benefits from sun exposure, warmth and humidity that are strong assets for the vine culture.

The wine pairs well with game meat and beef on the grill.

Larroque Bordeaux Blanc 2019

Larroque Bordeaux Blanc is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc

No oak.

Color : Pale yellow with green tints.
Nose : Complex aromas of white flowers, exotic fruits, citrus and boxwood, with a touch of minerality.
Mouth : Aromatic, with a nice richness and freshness. Predominant flavors of tart, crisp fruit.

Marie-Christine, the daughter of Henri Ducourt, purchased this prestigious left-bank property in 1979, which lies on the border of the Graves appellation. 
The 60-hectare vineyard was rapidly replanted and the château building, which dates from 1348, was restored. 
Our family now produces three different-colored wines there: red, white and rosé.

The Chateau Plaisance Estate
Chateau Plaisance is located in the Medoc area, at the border of the Margaux appellation,  overlooking the Gironde River. The average annual production is 60,000 bottles.

The construction of the Chateau Plaisance itself dates back to the 1780s, but its vineyards are far older, as can be seen on the 1753 map of the estate which can be found in the departmental archives of the Gironde.

This neoclassical "folie bordelaise" with its exterior double-helix staircase is now a listed historical monument. It still bears on its pediment the initials of its first owner, Jean Cavalier, and continues to be admired by lovers of 18th-century art. The architect of this monument was François Lhôte who was very active throughout the Bordelais.

Today, thanks to the painstaking attention of its owners, Chateau Plaisance has been reborn:

"We wanted to give the wines of Chateau Plaisance estate a reputation worthy of the prestigious architecture of the building itself. That's why the vineyards we tend, the wines we produce in our chais, the thousands of bottles we offer wine lovers, everything we do must show our ongoing concern for irreproachable quality."

The Chateau Plaisance Vineyard
Back in 1991, Jean-Louis and Isabelle Chollet began to buy up land in order to reconstitute the vineyards of the Châaeau Plaisance estate, located at the edge of the Margaux appellation d'origine controlee, on these famous palud alluvial soils, a terroir that has regained its former glory.

Overlooking the Garonne River, ten of the thirteen hectares of the estate, forming a single block, are now planted with 70% merlot, 20% cabernet-sauvignon, and 10% petit-verdot grapes. We have chosen to plant at a density of 5000 vines to the hectare to ensure a better concentration of our wines and to ensure an average yield of about 50 hectolitres per hectare.
