La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 2016

Too young I know but was hoping with a 5h+ decant this would still deliver. It did, though I’m not sure it showed as distinctively as I was hoping. On cork pop a medicinal note that blew off. Lots of dark red fruit and purple flowers. Tannins are there but alongside a ribeye weren’t overbearing. Quite nice but was hoping for something more. — 12 days ago

Hell yes. Love this producer. If you can score a bottle of the 2019 or 2020 St. Joseph "Vieilles Vignes," you won't be disappointed. Up's the ante.

"Le Pavillon" Ermitage Syrah 2020

Phenomenal! Dark plum base but layers of exhiberant and concentrated small dark berries and red fruit jump from the glass, but all enveloped in deep, complex earthy tones. Palate is insane, minerality and acidity are tingling, almost sparking on the sides of the mouth, mingling with the very fine lively tannins. So much pleasure without sacrificing any seriousness — 8 days ago

Château de Beaucastel

Coudoulet de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 1999

Redfruits, nice acid lifts this, fully mature and is super clean compared to the gamey/leathery/slightly funky 1999 Pegau CdP, but lacks the depth or flavor interest or sheer complexity of the Pegau!! — a month ago

Good age for a Côtes du Rhône! Regarding the Pegau - I have had frequent issues with Brett and Pegau.
