Les Vieilles Vignes Cornas Syrah 2019

2019 vintage. Reverse mullet. Party in the front, all business on the back-end. Just came across some more and will have to acquire another case. Medium-heavy body. Last tasted 12.26.22 (9.4) but scoring slightly higher here. 6.4.23. — 3 days ago

Cornas Syrah 2017

Subtly smoky, like a good Scotch or Mezcal. Gorgeous. — a month ago

Domaine Grand Veneur Les Origines Chateauneuf -du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2019

2019 vintage. Medium-heavy body and mouthfeel but on the prettier side. Chambord, violets, ripe plum and cherry all jostling for your attentions. Tannins fairly difficult to discern currently. Nicely made. Want more of a traditional CDP outline but think it may take a decade to even open that door and explore. If you’ve got the space and means, pick up 3 bottles. Hit one in the next few months, one in 5-7 years and the last one in 17-20 years as a hard experiment. Zero experience with older vintages of this particular offering and genuinely curious where it may lead. 3.8.23. — 3 months ago

Cuvée Stanislas Blanc De Blancs Champagne 2008

Delectable Wine

The 2008 Brut Blanc de Blanc Cuvée Stanislas is an attractive, easygoing Champagne for the year. Tangerine oil, lemon confit, marzipan, brioche, spice and lightly honeyed notes lend notable exuberance. This is an especially forward, accessible wine for 2008. Overall, this is a solid effort.

Château Bouscassé (Alain Brumont)

Madiran Menhir Tannat Blend 2006

50% Tannat, 50% Merlot blend. A lesser-known cuvée by Alain Brumont. The result is in the Bordeaux spirit. Black dress, ruby reflections still suggesting aging potential. After two hours of absolutely necessary aeration, the wine delivers notes of black fruits, blackberries, blackcurrants, plum. The breeding is elegant and melted with tannins between tobacco, chocolate, caramel, eucalyptus... the evolution notes are perfectly integrated into the bouquet. A wine with a classic style, of great drinkability.

Assemblage 50% Tannat, 50% Merlot pour cette cuvée moins connue de Alain Brumont. Le résultat est dans l’esprit Bordelais. Robe noire, reflets rubis suggérant encore du potentiel de garde. Après deux heures d’aération absolument nécessaire le vin se livre sur des notes de fruits noirs, mûres, cassis, prune. L’élevage est élégant et fondus aux tanins entre tabac, chocolat, caramel, eucalyptus.. les note d’évolution sont parfaitement intégrées au bouquet. Un vin au style classique, d’une grande buvabilité.
