Finished off two bottles from yesterday.
Uvaggio, Proprietà Sperino 2013 My second bottle of this, and the disappointing showing of the first was no fluke. Have followed this wine since TWS first stocked it, I think the 2007 vintage. It seems now to have shrunk to a fairly light everyday quaffer, a pity when I remember the ethereal and classy character of the initial vintages. I can only presume that now the best grapes go into posher cuvees. Poor value, not a buy for me anymore.
Cahors Cuvee Reservee de l,Aiuel 2009, Chateau Eugenie this one, on the other hand, somewhat exceeded (admittedly quite low) expectations. In a good place I think. I don’t buy Cahors anymore because they don’t really work with anything I eat, but while Cahors Is never going to be a hug of a wine this one had good fruit and authentic character. Just the right amount of austerity.
