Community Tasting Notes 9

    November 17, 2019 - Vintage 2014, which was my first Pradeaux rouge a couple of weeks ago, left me underwhelmed. With this wine I gladly begin to understand what the fuss is about.
    The colour is a translucent ruby red. While the wine was fiercely tannic and also quite woody upon opening, you could already sense, that this is a bigger gun than the 2014. On the second day the wine finally begins to open up and reveals a darker, riper fruit profile, combined with interchanging notes of flowers, marzipan, licorice and wood polish. It is medium-bodied, dry, fresh and pure, very structured and finishes quite long with a slight, not unpleasant warmth (which calls to mind beautiful sunny Provence). Yet the wine remains a bit too tannic, closed and unsettled for now. As I see very good potential I will buy me some more bottles and store them confidently for maybe 5 years. 91+

    November 26, 2017 - Grainy dense tannins, alcohol-forward nose.
    Good with a rustic strong beef dish, powerful wine, needs a similar dish to shine or a ton of age

    February 14, 2016 - Déjà évolué, arômes discrets de fruits noirs et de poivre, qui ressort particulièrement en bouche. Un peu astringent. Bien, sans être transcendant. A boire avec un plat en sauce ou une viande saignante pour adoucir les tanins.

    January 23, 2016 - Cork pulled at 11 a.m. Needs to come up a bit from cellar temp.

    Nose: Oregano, thyme, roasted green bell pepper, fir tree, floating over a core of red currant fruit.

    Palate loses the fir tree notes but the rest holds along with the addition of the crispy crust of a beef roast. This has so much more to give. Weekend project.

  • DrakkarNoir Likes this wine:

    December 14, 2015 - Dark ruby. Savoury nose of white pepper, wet rocks, fresh rhubarb, tart cherries. Medium bodied with very grippy tannins, like a young nebbiolo. Tart, long finish. Lively. 14.5% abv.
