Introduction

Tasting some wines from Ulysee Cazabone negociant in Bordeaux at WSPC .

Flight 1 (6 notes)

Rosé
2020 Domaine de L'Ile Côtes de Provence Porquerolles Rosé France, Provence, Côtes de Provence
The wine is a blend of mainly Grenace, with Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, Tibouren
The wine shows density, ripe pearl, apricot, floral notes, very fragrant, almost cologne-like, there is ripeness, a touch of reduction that will probably clear up
Palate shows body, ripe fruit, more on the peach side, mandarin, very fruit, nice texture, 12.50%, long finish.
Different rose, offering impact, gastronomic, not for a party. Would be fun to see this with a few years on its back
White
2021 Domaine de L'Ile Côtes de Provence Blanc France, Provence, Côtes de Provence
Very different in style, salty, sea breeze, freshness, citrus fruit, lemon leaves, again a fragrant cologne-like nuance. There is a bit of bitter/medicinal hue here
In the palate, the wine shows the same level of impact as the nose, it has the same profile of flavours, citrus notes, green overall, lemon leaves, kiwi, high acidity, long finish.
Again I’d say that this would be better with food.
Red
2014 Pauillac de Rauzan-Ségla France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Pauillac
65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 200 different soils, 18 months in oak
The wine shows depth of fruit, loads of ripe black fruit, berries, cherries, floral notes, fragrant, elegant but also dense. The oak offers support in the back. Very extrovert with a bit of time in the glass, ripe black fruit, cherry, currant, prunes, plums, a touch of smoke, tobacco, licorice nuances, quite open and welcoming.
In the palate, the wine shows loads of fruit again, a touch warm (13.50%), the oak is more upfront, ripe fruit, prunes, currants, medium acidity, it does feel lacking real depth and complexity, feels more for short-term drinking, a few herbal bitter notes in the medium finish
Red
2001 Pauillac de Rauzan-Ségla France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Pauillac
The wine shows evolution in color
The wine shows great profile, straightforward, evolution with ripe to overripe red cherries, decadent notes of sweet spices, currants, clove, cinnamon, a fine layer of old wood, tobacco but mostly fruit which is amazing and adds to the freshness.
In the palate, the wine shows the same profile as the nose, tobacco, earthy, rose petal liquer, cloves, roasted nutty notes like a baklava, shows body, elegance, silky tannins and medium to long finish
Red
2001 Château Canon France, Bordeaux, Libournais, St. Émilion Grand Cru
The wine shows darker core but more evolved rim
In the nose, the wine shows depth, earthier and elegant, fin and layered, there is ripeness next to licorice, with coffee liquers drops here and there
In the palate, the wine shows beautiful character, again elegant, earthy, a touch gamey, not entirely Bretty but beautiful old Bordeaux character, nice texture, silky tannins, smooth, medium finish
Red
2014 Château Canon France, Bordeaux, Libournais, St. Émilion Grand Cru
65% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc, 1 soil, 18 months in oak
The wine shows fragrance, ripe fruit, cherry, currant, plums, fine oak layer, licorice, a touch warm again.
Palate shows elegance, ripe fresh cherries, again warm, the tannins are not aggressive, it does seem lean though, it lack body but it is really easy to drink, medium finish
