Full-bodied, some “fat” and with a lot of fresh fruit. The grape blend is unusual: petit manseng, albariño, verdejo, grenache blanc and grenache gris. And these unusual grapes are of course the reason why this wine is a Vin de France. Domaine de la Cendrillon (cendrillon = Cinderella) […]

A riesling is a riesling is a riesling. No, no, no! This wine is simply delicious and is a perfect paring served with for example a white fish or seafood like some nice prawns. The wine has a very attractive bouquet with complexity and citrus, some mint and classic riesling petroleum. On […]

Delicious, very elegant but still quite full-bodied. Age has given it a silky texture and some aromas of leather and dried fruit. It has aged very well. The grapes are 80% Carignan and 20% Grenache. Which shows, if somebody still doubts it, that wines from Carignan can be amazing wines to age. The […]

We light a fire to keep warm. Stews simmer in the kitchen. This is a good time to pop the cork in a Brunello di Montalcino. Like for instance the one from Tenute Silvio Nardi. 2011 does not have the same cult status as 2010 but it still shows excellently […]

Like for example Champagne. I tried this English sparkling wine blind at my sister’s and brother in law’s house. Obviously they wanted to set me up. And so they did. My thoughts went directly to Champagne, although I also considered whether it could […]

The family’s Cahors wines were then known as powerful wines for laying in you cellar. Wines that you should rather not touch the first years of their life. But Fabrice realized that today’s consumers do not want to wait 10-15 years for their wines. […]
