Domaine Sarnin-Berrux

La Syrah

A very natural Syrah, by Burgundian winegrowers. Aging for one year in old casks. Crunchy and spicy, with peppery and liquorice flavors. Blindly we think of a high-quality Croze-Hermitage. As is often the case with low-sulfur wines, there is good volume and freshness. An accessible and refined wine. A beautiful domaine whom I discover the different vintages, each more successful than the last.

Une Syrah tres nature, par des vignerons Bourguignons. Élevage d’un an en fût ancien. Croquant et épicé, avec des saveurs poivrées et réglisse. À l’aveugle on pense à un Croze-Hermitage de haute facture. Comme souvent avec les vins peu soufrés, on a beau volume et de la fraîcheur. Un vin accessible et raffiné. Un beau domaine dont je découvre les différentes cuvées, toutes plus réussies les unes que les autres.

Ancien Domaine des Pontifes

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2001

Browning at the edges of a medium to dark red with a somewhat closed but complex dusty nose with a medium complex body with definite age, but not over the hill at all with a long complex aftertaste. 4.0 for the 2001 — 2 years ago

Softer than Fiddlestix 2018 so like it more! — 7 months ago

Tokaj Hétszőlő

Ancien Domaine Royal Imperial Tokaj Late Harvest 2007

This wine is still showing pretty well but is probably on the decline (showing some signs of oxidation perhaps?). Ripe yellow apple, pineapple, dried mango, white pepper, honeyed things. Lots of flavor but lacks the acidity and umami characteristics of an aszú. — 7 months ago
