Côtes Du Rhône Brézème, Northern Rhône

Mousset

Excellence Rosé Blend

Pale salmon pink. Citrus rind and white peach on the slightly shy nose. Firm acidity leads the medium light, minerally palate of citrus rind, white peach, and cantaloupe. Finish is strikingly long for a rosé and still quite mineral laden. An excellent pink for foods of all types including lighter cuts of beef and more dense seafoods (swordfish or scallops). An exotic sorbet would fare well, too. What would some age do? Drink now through summer 2024 (if you can hold on to it for that long.) to find out. — a day ago

Le Méal Blanc Hermitage Marsanne 2013

Not feeling the love tonight. I have had this vintage before and it has been magical. Love this wine. Usually a very complex oily joy. But tonight’s has been a bit harsh. Don’t think it’s spoiled but it’s definitely off. So let’s see how it does tomorrow. Some strong flinty elements but not much of the usual peach and apricot. Crossing fingers for better news on part 2 — 5 days ago

Côte Blonde Côte-Rôtie Syrah 1995

Decanted for a few hours before checking in. Purple reddish color. Earthy nose. Notes of black currants, crushed granite, blueberries, some funk, some menthol and some dark soil. What it has in the nose is missing in the mouth…. Not as good as the last bottle… not very exciting nor impactful. Today it’s all about the nose. — 4 days ago

Aromas and flavors of white peach and lemon with notes of minerals, white flowers and herbs. Straw gold color, medium body and refreshing. Long and lingering finish. Excellent! — 4 days ago
