We've tasted 1 bottle of blanc and 5 bottles of rouge tonight. The Vigneron is Jean Mitchel Alquier.

The blanc was chilled little cooler, so that The taste was nice acid and mineral, but It didn't smell nicely. but after half an hour, it's started blooming! Very nice toasted smelling, little honey and fruits.

The rouge was also nice tannin and juicy. It also has nice acidity even though the winery is located in Faugeres in Languedoc. Especially, I loved La Maison Jaune 2004 and 1998. Those two were nice balanced, I think. By the way, Older bottles was printed "JM Alquier", but Recently It's printed "JM & V Alquier". Could you guess who is "V"? We think It's the name of his wife.
