April Temptations

 

Last month, I wrote about ‘Spring’ wines, but Mother Nature decided otherwise.
I am still lighting my fire and my Spring blossom is struggling. Ok, I give in, no rosé, nor white wines for the month of April. Instead, some robust red wines which will cheer us up as Mother Nature procrastinates whether to treat us to some much needed sunshine or not.

Chateau K, AOC Bergerac, Red 2009. AB
Merlot, cabernet sauvignon

Black, deep intensity, amazing depth of colour. Aromas of cedar and black fruits. Dry, full bodied, with firm, chewy tannins. Gourmet flavours of blackberries and cassis and a lingering finish, Absolutely perfect with a delicious roast lamb, or beef.

Domaine de la Croix Belle, Cotes de Thongue, Syrah 2012
Syrah 100%

Everybody’s favourite, the new vintage has just arrived.
Lovely mouth-watering aromas of black fruits, with mocha coffee and dark chocolate. Fresh acidity, medium bodied, savoury tannins. Full of flavour, with lot of blackberries and chocolate. Well balanced, lots of fruit, short finish – but a very pleasant dark fruit, after taste.

Château Grinou , ‘Tradition’, Rouge 2011. AB
70% Merlot; 15% cabernet franc et sauvignon.

This is a newcomer to the Cave. Open, aromatic aromas of red fruits, redcurrants, raspberries. Palate is gently sweet, with fresh acidity and soft tannins. Lots of vibrant red fruit flavours on the palate, with some interesting spicy hints. Can be served slightly chilled and ideal with charcuterie.
