An exciting Bordeaux wines tasting took place as part of the Harlem EatUp! festival
Jaillance Rosé, Crémant de Bordeaux Brut NV – Sparkling wine
Showing a delicate pink hue, this wine has an attractive red berry cream nose with a whiff of biscuit notes. Refreshing mouthfeel with a persistent creamy mousse and lively bright red fruit flavors. A super all-around bubbly for any day of the week.
Château Bonnet Rosé 2016
Attractively pink, this is a delightful, easy drinking Bordeaux rosé. Lively and wonderfully fruity on the palate (think red fruit cocktail). Energetic, packed with flavor, with an attractive creaminess mid-palate and refreshingly crisp finish.
Château Nicot Blanc, 2015, Entre Deux Mers
Zesty Sauvignon Blanc dominant wine – attractive floral lift on the nose. The wine is crisp, juicy and light bodied with ample citrus, grassy aromas and flavors. A perfect spring/summer sipper and ab fab with all things seafood.
Château Tire Pe, Tire Pe Diem, 2015 AOC Bordeaux
Merlot with soul and style and firmly anchored in terroir. Youthful, medium-bodied, and packed with delicious bright plummy and blackberry fruit. Firm, yet fleshy tannins add texture and roundness. Long persistent finish.
Château Laribotte, 2011 Sauternes
Delicious, luscious and richly textured with a fine spine of refreshing acidity. Bountiful aromas and flavors of orange marmalade, dried stone fruit, with lifted floral notes and a touch of spice. Lingering rich finish.
