Lovely natural wines

We've opened those wines below.

The left picture was Sauvignon Blanc. It's rich, but not thick. It's different from usual sauvignon blanc, I think. The middle wasa also the same grape. It smelt like citrus and fresh. I like to drink it in a summer day. The right was Chenin Blanc. It's extraordinary smell. I wanna drink it again.

Recently, I have a chance to taste Bordeaux. I've got a feeling of that Bordeaux wine(might be aged ones) has a style. and It's exellent. But I also liked the wine like these wines tonight. There are lots of charm that I wouldn't have expected. I can't say which is better. Anyway, I'm lucky to have opportunities to taste those wines.

Tonight Bordeaux wine.

We've opened two bottles of wine tonight. Both were aged. 1994 and 1975. The 1975 smelt like Chinese rice wine at first. and enough acid as an old wine. It begun to smell like fruits, spice, meaty smell, and nice smell mushroom after minutes. It's not thick, more elegant. The 1994 smelt like mushroom too. It's better balanced than 1995. I liked both.

Calon Segur again

I had a chance to drink this wine another vintage. Somehow, I can smell nice mushrooms, currant, spice. when I taste this wine. I've told it might be the smell called "sous-bois". I have some chances to drink Bordeaux recently. A French wine lover invites me. I think Bordeaux wine is also nice. I wanna try aonther Bordeaux sometimes when I can join. The pino was also nice balanced.
