Château de Beaucastel

Coudoulet de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2009

Wow, this is amazing for a 12-year old Cotes du Rhone. Nose almost reminds me of mature Bordeaux (good shit, not regular Bordeaux). Cedar, earthy, dark spicy blackberry, iodine. Totally resolved and balanced in the mouth, with a remarkable fruit presence for a 12-yr. old. Tannins still there but super soft. Good acids. Just wow. — 5 days ago

What a mouthful this gem is. A reference point in southern France.
Huge dollops of Meyer lemons on the nose. Palate displays biscotti and maple syrup. Huge textured finish, with a viscous mouthfeel. Extremely decadent. 15 - 20 years of runway in front of it.

Poetry of Silence Ardèche Pinot Noir

Unfiltered, peach color. Petrol, leather, peat on the nose which reminds me of the port wine caves in Portugal. Complex taste overall with a round mouth feel and a long finish. This oxidized style of wine is well balanced by a bright acidity and slight tartness but does allude to the vin jaune style of the Jurassic region. Very beautiful skin contact Pinot noir. Would love to try some other wines from this vigneron. — 22 days ago

Hermitage White Blend 2015

This wine is just Fucking beautiful.

The style here is so elegant. I love these wines. I could really drink this once a week. So much the opposite of heavy.

Nose is perfume. Tropical fruit flowers. Not the fruit itself.

Palate is hints of tropical fruit. Mineral. Sleek in a good way. Gorgeous texture. So atypical for the rhone. If more wineries made wine like this I’d drink them as much as I do burgundy.

I think when you add the F-word, the wine is at least a 94.
Looking forward to drinking her wines at some point, we bought '17.

These are not wines for people who want to be knocked over by fruit. Very atypical for the region.

They are also crazy cheap for some reason.

Vin de Pays de Collines Syrah 2019

Original cuvée. Syrah in carbonic maceration. Not filtered, not glued, without added sulphur. A surprising light colour when you know the usual colours of the grape variety. The nose is generously marked by fruits and flowers. The mouth is juicy, aerial, explosive, dominated by the primary aromas and the purity of the fruit. Fine, supple and digestible texture. The day after it gains in scale and finesse in a beautiful nuanced balance reminiscent of Burgundy or the most aerial wines of Beaujolais. A wine that is not as obvious as it seems that it takes time to reveal itself.

Cuvée originale. Syrah en maceration carbonique. Non filtré, non collé, sans apport de souffre. Robe surprenante de légèreté quand on connaît les couleurs habituelles du cépage. Le nez est généreusement marqué par les fruits et les fleurs. La bouche est juteuse, aérienne, explosive, dominé par les arômes primaires et la pureté du fruit. Texture fine, souple et digeste. Le jour d’après il gagne en ampleur et finesse dans un très bel équilibre nuancé qui rappelle la Bourgogne ou les crus les plus aériens du Beaujolais. Un vin pas aussi évident qu’il n’y parait qui a besoin de temps pour se révéler.
