Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2018

Nice wine especially for the price. Dark and brooding in the glass. One of the more Syrah-y syrahs that we have had. Green olive on the nose. Deep black fruits. Tannins are unresolved - not surprising given the age. But the acid is there in a great way, and holds this together. One to try in several years - too young now. — 7 days ago

Les Ronces Côte St-Jacques Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015

Vintage 2015 | Tasted next to the basic vin de France Pinot Noir. Just as transparant 1/4, but way more depth. Minerality and flint in smell, hint of raspberry, lovely true to type pinot expression in smell. More depth in taste, elegance and fine acidity. Paired with vegetable macedoine and a meatball. — a month ago

La Guiraude Crozes-Hermitage Syrah

A nose of black berries, spices, herbs, olives and tapenade, a touch meaty and a slight hint of barn aromas, the palate has decent fruit, it is tight, medium bodied plus, texture a tad dry without being thin, medium finish, pretty good.

Un nez de mures, tapenade, olives noires, une touche viandée et étable mais sand être dérangeante, la bouche est assez serrée, de corps moyen plus, une texture sèche sans être mince, finale moyenne, c’est assez bien. 89-90

Classy Rhone. Open for 30 min, rounded and soft on the nose, blueberry/raspberry with an undercurrent of dry earth. Some spice on the palate. Well made. — 2 days ago

Les Chenes Vert Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2016

This needs time but already can tell it’s major. Olive, meat, mineral, high acid. Strength and elegance. Magnum. — 14 days ago

Saint-Romain Chardonnay 2016

Once again very nice, a touch buttery and with some lemon zest, fresh and nice vivid and energetic structure. 90-91

Magnifique et complet encore une fois, touche beurrée et citronnée, tout en fraîcheur et saveur ayant une belle charpente d’acidité bien dosée. 90-91

Tres Vieilles Vignes Auxey-Duresses Pinot Noir 2016

Expressive notes of dark fruits, spices and still some signs of oak, palate is medium bodied, fresh with depth and clean, nice texture, drinks easy, could benefit of 1-2 years in bottle, the 2017 drank earlier this year was even more ready. 89-90

Fruits noirs, encore une touche d’élevage, bouche de corps moyen avec une belle fraîcheur et une certaine profondeur en bouche, de belle texture, se boit très bien en ce moment mais 1-2 and encore en bouteille serait bien. 89-90
