Default 06/05 Bernadotte?

Every year the Foires aux Vins is a chance to pick up some Borducks that
I wouldn't otherwise see. Sometimes, there's nothing of interest.
Sometimes (like this year at Intermarche) there's a great teaser: 05
d'Agassac (sp?) for 12.5 EU. Too bad they didn't have any of course,
but having gotten me there I did leave with a couple 02 du Tertre for
around 15.

Leclerc's circular just arrived, all the usual suspects (interesting
they avoid 05 altogether, too expensive for the super market clientelle
I guess).

They have a couple of interesting things, including 06 Bernadotte for
13.60 EU and 05 for 14.30. Haven't had, I remember Dale liking other
years. Anyone tried it?

Also 04 Destieux for 18.50 I'll probably get a couple.

Does anyone know a CdCastillon called Labesse or Roque le Mayne?
AVailable for 7 and 8 respectively, the names ring a bell but
can't place it.

Thanks

Emery,
I have a few bottles of Ch. Roque Le Mayne...not bad but not very
French in style. Somewhat big and oaky but a good value.

I'm generally a Bernadotte fan, kind of mid-traditional. Haven't had
the '05, eying at $20. For a dollar's difference I'd go with '05 over
'06.
I think '04 Destieux is supposed to be good, but it's $21 or so here,
so 18.5 euros is not a bargain vs US.

Thanks Bill. Exactly the sort of heads up I was looking for. Doesn't
sound like what I look for in a Castillon, I may buy a bottle just
to try though.

cheers,

Thanks much Dale. It seemed to me the 05 would be the better candidate,
I'll likely pick up a case.

I used to buy Destieux direct in the old days, still have a little from
85/86 in fact. In those days it was a terrific value, and I still
remember it being 60FF in the early-mid 90s... Now of course all that's
changed, but I like it and think 18 is a fair price anyway, given
what you can drop for a correspondingly good (or not even as) bottle.
The difference of course is that I have to limit my purchases...

cheers,

I believe that it is the Parker/Von Neipperg effect. After reading
your post I opened a bottle of Ch. Roque Le Mayne and it was quite
concentrated, even a bit jammy with plenty of oak. Very California in
style and it reminded me of Ch. Aiguilhe.

I have a case of the Bernadotte 2005, bought for 10 quid a bottle, I was
going to leave it for a couple of years?

BTW, Bruges trip was great, went to Den Dyver, great food but a little
pricey. Had to have wine with food, could not take all those different
beers, though folk were ploughing throught he beer menu.

John, I got my case of 05. I'm guessing it will want 3-5, but it's just
a guess since I haven't tried it. Anyway that's the time frame I'll
open a bottle.

Maybe Dale has an inkling as to ageability.

Found a couple of other unexpected bargains, some Moulin a Vent from
Janin, Saumur from St. Just, cheap 05 CdR from Brunel.

BTW, Bruges trip was great, went to Den Dyver, great food but a little
pricey. Had to have wine with food, could not take all those different

Great! I look forward to trying the place. Did you notice if they
accept dogs, by any chance?

I haven't tried the '05, Typically my experience is that Bernadotte
probably drinks best 5-8 years after vintage. I have one 2000 left,
planning on drinking it soon. I don't think it typically has the
stuffing of some of its peers like Potensac, But again, just my
opinion, and I haven't tried the 2005. I just got a couple bottles,
will probably wait.
