Re: What de Négoce wine are you drinking tonight?

Just Pobega’d N.44. Another winner. Bit oakier than others I’ve tried but pure fruit beneath and refined tannin I’m the finish. Medium bodied, no reason not to pop one now.

Re: What de Négoce wine are you drinking tonight?

N50 right off the truck like Mssr Pobega taught us. Delicious - serious and brooding w savory/game and dark berry notes. Not as tannic as N25 is now, but nor is it as complex. Needs time but it’s not shocked at all. Dump one into a decanter.
