Cháteau Le Crock, Saint Estèphe, 2009

Cháteau Le Crock, Saint Estèphe, 2009, Grand Vin Bordeaux, Red-wine from France

This vintage is two years older than the same wine of 2011 I tried recently. I like to risk writing that I would prefer the younger one. To avoid any misunderstanding (!), the 2011 is perhaps less drinkable yet but 2009 is. Please find my review about the 2011 here: https://avdwineandfood.wordpress.com/2015/08/20/chateau-le-crock-saint-estephe-2011/.

Heimann, Birtokbor, Szekszárd, 2011

Heimann, Birtokbor, Szekszárd, 2011, red wine from Hungary

4,5 points

My friend Gabor Kereszty brought me a box of six different wines from the Hungarian winery Heimann.  Although I thought I would know more than others about Hungarian wine, I must admit I didn’t know of Heimann, from the southern city of Szekszard.

Like all really good Hungarian wine, this is a cuvée! Birtokbor contains Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Kékfrankos (Blaufränkisch) and Syrah – according to the website of Heimann (http://www.heimann.hu/en/menu/wines). It is the very well-balanced combination of grapes that makes it very notable and, simply speaking, good.
