Black Saint Peter

Pierre Gonon

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2019

No lack of concentration. Bloody. Meaty. A bit beefy at first but this blows off and resolves into a powerful, elegant bouquet of black licorice, exotic black pepper and nutmeg, grape candy, crushed mint. Beneath is a juicy, salty, smokey and bacony wine that is silky and flavorful but clearly withholding even more. I’d not drink again until 2024 when this should be open for business. — 3 days ago

Lovely, we have lots of Beychevelle, but mostly mid-90's forward.

Château Laroque

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

This is my 2nd '18 from Saint Emilion tonight, the first I didn't rate... Selection Bias..it was a 91 ... Anyway, this one well integrates the front forward red, blue and black fruit. Equally, it is a bomb of the combo of the 3, but with a slight leaning towards the blue berries. Nice balance with medium plus alcohol and medium tannins. Medium minus acidity. It's a very well balanced wine. I would like another shot at this one as it may be a notch or two higher.

The Vice

Single Vineyard Napa Valley Saint Laurent 2019

Tried this as I happened to walk past a wine bar “Local & Vine” in NYC and met wine reps. Deep Ruby with aromas of red fruits, cedar and big floral and violet notes, aged in French oak. On the palate flavors of blackberry and ripe black cherry with notes of cacao, vanilla and pronounced dried floral herbs. Fine rich tannins, long finish ending with fruit, cacao, spice and floral notes. Nice but a bit too floral right now, needs more time in the bottle. — 6 days ago

Château Gloria Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. This is the best Gloria I have ever tasted and quintessential Saint-Julien in this fabulous vintage. Concentrated black fruit, cigar box, floral notes and lead pencil. Margaux meets Pauillac. Powerful and elegant, layered and precise, with juicy acidity and a long mineral finish. Highly recommended. Abv. 13,5%. On release I thought it was superior to its stablemate Saint-Pierre, should try to taste them alongside again. — 23 days ago
