Lamblin Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume and Davino Domaine Ceptura Rose
I opened these wines on FRI evening and re tasted them during the following two days.
Lamblin Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaumes 2007
Price: 14 EUR
The wine has a pale yellow color. The nose shows discreet aromas of lemon and green apple mixed with wet stone. In the mouth this wine is thin, with a light body, watery, lacking any kind of concentration, has a medium acidity, with some light mineral notes and an unpleasant short bitter finish. A very poor bottle of Chablis 1er Cru. Poor and wouldn’t buy it again.
Davino Domaine Ceptura Rose 2008
Price: not sure as it was a gift
This is a blend of Merlot with Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine has a pink salmon color. Strong aromas of roses mixed with light red fruits are coming on the nose. In the mouth the wine comes with an off dry sensation. On the first day the wine had an unpleasant heat, the 14.6% alc was very present, however over the next two days the heat faded away and the wine became more pleasant, still a medium body wine with a high acidity, with flavors of spicy red fruits and strong red currant aromas. The finish is short to medium. Good but I couldn’t drink more than 1 glass at a time as the alcohol level is disturbingly high in this rose “summer” wine.
Overall it wasn’t a pleasant wine session. Hope the next one will be better.
Thanks for reading!
