Ch. Verdignan 2009

Bordeaux wines are becoming increasingly more expensive and the best value reds from that region are the smaller properties like the Verdignan. 2009 and 2010 are two excellent vintages and the wines from these vintages are drinking perfectly right now. The colour is deep dark red. The nose is discrete with nice dark fruit, some herbs and vanilla. Well balanced taste with firm soft tannins. A nice Bordeaux at around 270 NOK or 20€.

Chambolle Musigny Les Cras 2012

Patrice Rion is one of the masters of Chambolle and he has three different premier crus as far as I know. This one called Les Cras, Les Fuees and the famous Les Charmes. All of them are equally good and elegant although my personal favourite is Les Charmes. Optimum timing for drinking them are at least 5-7 years old to smoothen the tannins that are present in the younger years. This one from 2012 has lots of red fruit dominated by wild raspberries and cherries. Delicate taste with a lovely balance and soft tannins. A lovely wine that will improve even further with a couple of more years in the bottle. Chambolle Musigny 2012 "Les Cras" Patrice Rion  Ca 50€
