Origin Denomination -les talles

I saw this wine a few weeks back, but it seamed too special and it called to be drank at a special time. And what other moment than to say good-bye to my good friend Grexxen. It has been amazing to share all this wines and adventures with you.

Going back to the wine, look at the delicate flowers on the label. It had to be some extraordinaty. Dark ruby and strong smell. As it flows in your mouth you start feeling the different layers spread and then right before the end, there is honey. honey? I never expected that, it is worth trying.

White Bordeaux – Moelleux 

And there I was thinking that Bordeaux was only a reference to Red Wine.

This post is special, because it two of my most wonderful French friends made the honorable selection. They did warned me that it would be really sweet, but I was confident as I have tried many moscatos. I though they were going to be similar. I was wrong!

They are totally different. The white Bordeaux was an incredible surprise, as it was so sweet that that there was basically no sourness to taste and yet different layers of fruits could be tasted.

I personally do not like wines that are too sweet, but this was an comfortable encounter.

Bordeaux – Puisseguin Saint-Emilion

Bordeaux! What a blessing for the world of wine! And, this one was particularly outstanding, as it was carefully chosen by my favourite French friends. It was a lovely movie night!

This wine felt soft and shy but at the same time rather elegant. It felt refined, as its smell was pleasant and not aggressive at all. It was or dark ruby red and well layered.

Personally, I really enjoy how French people are into the Bordeaux wines, and the magical thing is that they never dissapoint me. I can’t wait to get another recomendarion from you guys!

Merlot – Sassoregale

It’s a dark shadowy night, no one in the street but the wind. You are alone at home, you try to sleep but something’s on your mind. You feel something approaching, the doors slides open. You want to open yours eyes but you can’t. You hear an animal, you think it’s an owl, it might an owl…….


Don’t worry, it was just a movie, mystery, suspense movie. And there was a perfect companion for it, this beguiling Merlot.

Let me start saying the label was certainly the detail that lured us to get it, just like the movie, it felt mysterious. Upon opening it, we found out that it was absolutely delicious, however a little too strong for a merlot. We tried chilling it, but we weren’t too careful and it became too chilled. It was tasteless! So we had to wait until it got warmer.

By this time, the movie was more than half way. But the wait was worthy, it turned in to a fine wine that I truly recommend but be prepared for a merlot with character.

Merlot-Long Country

Playful! That is the perfect word to describe this wine. And it is exactly how it makes you feel.

As a merlot, it is low in Tannin, which is a characteristic feature, but I would have expected it to be more layered. It is a two year old wine, and it was too flat, perhaps if it is aged for longer time.

Either way, it is a great choice to share with friends and spend a great time.

Bordeaux Supérieur

This post is special is a special one. I needed special guests in order to do it.

This is wine is also not sold in Taiwan, just like CASTELMAURE, it was brought directly from France. And the thing is, French wines are a piece of art. There is nothing simple about them and when done properly, they are an adventure for one’s senses.  This beauty was not the exception.

Dark beautiful ruby and strong steady smell. High in tannin but well balance so that it agrees with your paladar. With many different layers so that you can feel the different grapes and fruits of the Bordeaux region. Lovely!

The only reason I have to rate this awesomeness a little harsh, is because I know that France has higher standards. For Taiwan, I would rate it about 4.6/5, but according to GG, who kindly shared it with me and Grexxen, it is about a 4/5.

Cabernet Sauvignon – Joostenberg

This is the wine served at Artful Dodgers. I love this restaurant and if you are interested I will posting about it soon.

They have only one selection of wine, and it is this one. Many of my dear friends always complain that even though the food is excellent, they do not like the wine. Before starting this blog, I did not understand all the reasons, but now that I have learned a little I went again and tried it once more with Grexxen and the SaltyAvocado.

As a Latin-American living in Taiwan, I am often in contact with South-American and French wines, also with Australian and South Africans but very little with Californian wines.

Cuvée – La Cuvée Mythique

Totally unexpected. I saw it there and I was hesitating. But that owl was looking at me like, take me, take me.

I was good, it was satisfying, it was mystifying. With a dark steady color and cranberry hues.

This Cuveé was the appointed companion for watching the newest Pirates of the Caribbean. And just like the movie, it left us with a satisfying finish, one of those where not only the taste feels good but also the experience
