Open at the Tasting Bar this Weekend

Haut-La Péreyre Bordeaux Blanc ($19 / $17.1) This domaine has been around since 1881, selling wine in bulk to traders, and finally estate bottling in 1974. Olivier Cailloux is the sixth generation manager of the domaine, producing bone-dry white wines, courtesy of the appellation's high ground of sloping hills near the river town of Cadillac. Lemongrass, gooseberry, lime, and seashell. Starts out, but finishes with a nice viscosity. 

Graville-Lacoste Graves ($22 / $19.8) The 2022 vintage is in! Like the 2021, this Graves from Hervé Dubourdieu is crisp, refreshing, citrusy and slightly tropical. The Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Muscadelle vines are 5 decades old and make for a delicious and great value white. Orange fruit, white peach, pineapple lovely tart acidity to balance the finish. 

Grand Enclos du Château de Cérons Blanc ($32 / $28.8) Wine club feature.  Under owner Giorgio Cavana, winemaker Bertrand Léon and technical director Xavier Dauba create age-worthy white blends, the 2016 is drinking beautifully at the moment. This 2016 wine is made of 49.5% sauvignon blanc and 50.5% semillon which makes for a long finish and ever-changing palate with a full-bodied but fresh complexity. Pome tree fruits, quince paste, melon and beeswax. Finishes with creaminess and tannins from oak barrel aged Semillon.

Haut-La Péreyre Cuvée Meste-Jean ($25 / $22.5). The Reserve from Oliveir Cailloux''s top vineyard acresd in the hills behind Cadillac, this blend of 65% Cabernet, 25% Merlot and 10% Petite Verdot is dark and savory wine for the excellent price. Finishes smooth with black spices and soft tannins.

Canon Chaigneau Lalande-de-Pomerol ($33 / $29.7). Wine club feature. This 'baby Pomerol' comes from the Néac plateau where deep gravelly soils result in ripe plums, violets and truffles to this wine of great character.  A long, mediumn tannic finish lingers and begs for something gamey and sweet.  93% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec.

Château Dutruch Grand Poujeaux ($37 / $33.3) Wine club feature. Across Bordeaux on another plateau, the Grand Poujeaux, Chateau Dutruch is located just west of Margaux and St-Julien in Moulis-en-Medoc. The Cordonnier family fashions wines in a timeless, elegant way. A blend of 55% Cabernet, 44% Merlot and 1% Petite Verdot gives aromas of dark berries, cassis and white smoke, rlaly highlighting the uniqueness of the Medoc. Tannins are bolder here, but have integrated nicely with time in the bottle. 

Grand Enclos du Château de Cérons Rouge ($35 / $31.5) The Rouge of the estate, this is a classic Bordeaux with aromas of vanilla, toasted oak, green leafs and spice. Tannins are long and finessed. 67% Merlot, 33% Cabenet Sauvignon.

2010 Moulin Pey-Labrie Canon Fronsac ($47 / $42.3). Showing off the strength of the 2010 vintage, the primarily Merlot red is struting right now. Ripe fruits, candied orange, and a bright acidity is nicely balanced with soft tannis. Drink now! 

Château Grillon Sauternes ($26 / 23.4) For sweet wine lovers that appreicate restrauint, Sauternes is an affordable entry into a very complex wine category. Made from grapes affected by the 'noble rot' of Botrytis cinerea, Sauternes are complex, earthy and not overly sweet. Chateau Grillon's includes aromas of dried citrus, baked pome fruits and cut hay.
