Château de la Dauphine

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009

Vintage: 1999
Type: Merlot, Cabernet Franc
Country: Bordeaux, France

V-day Dinner at ROSL 4

This wine we had for with our Valentine’s day menu. It was superb. A wine this old needs to be decanted and left to breath, but afterwards it is an experience. The bouquet was amazing and full, whilst the flavours were subtle (hints of leathery smokiness). If you can find it have some!

La Serre

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

Vintage: 2007
Type: Merlot
Country: France

This wine was served at a function, and I decided to do a quick rating. Not very good overall, but easy to drink and if it was served again I would have some.

This is a very good drinking wine. Great flavours and quite resonably priced. Those Aussies have done it again!

This is a nice wine. I really like how well the flavours mix around, but are balanced. Recommended.
