On tasting this weekend

We got some new Bordeaux in - Chateau Noaillac 06 back in stock and I ordered a few cases of this stuff to try. Hadn't tasted it before I ordered which is usually asking for trouble, but pleasantly surprised. Good fruit, decent structure, well rounded and smooth, very happ indeed. On tasting this weekend, its around €20ish.

Ordering without tasting?! I thought I was the only one who did that - I ordered my wedding wines and the wines for my daughter's christening without tasting. Both worked out well enough but I wouldn't recommend it!

It's nerve-wracking, even if it is only 5 cases!

Will be buying a bottle of this, tasted really good in the shop - nice one to have for Christmas.

Another gem from the bastion of Dalkey wine!
