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. — 12 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Roussanne 2012

A note from last weekend at the Gold Coast. Initially too cool from the fridge so left it for 20 minutes. Mid to a deeper yellow in colour. Aromas of Apricot and Quince with a touch of honey. On the palate - quince, apricot, pear - a mouthful of deliciousness and a flavour explosion - low acid. Texturally it is unctuous with the blend being around 80% Roussane. These vines were planted nearly 100 years ago and comprise only 3 Hectares. Needless to say the quantities produced are small. Must locate more if I can find. In summary a stunning full bodied white wine. — 3 months ago

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc White Rhone Blend 2016

See previous notes - just an outstanding CdP white comprising 80% Roussanne, 15% Grenache Blanc and a few other varieties. Lovely aromatics of musk, apricot and pear. The palate is rich without being heavy - a note of mandarin. Medium minus acid. Just delicious - finding yourself reaching for another glass. Easter Sunday aperitif. — 4 months ago

Les Filles Vin de Savoie Chignin-Bergeron Roussanne 2019

Wow. Like a CPB blanc (Beaucastel VV?) with a bit of humor and some mountain air. Grapefruit, wet stone, pine, lemon oil, waxy palate, bitter almond. Need more of this in my life. Beautiful stuff @Lyle Fass — 2 months ago

Yangarra Estate

Roux Beauté McLaren Vale Roussanne 2017

We were lucky to have probably the benchmark for the Roussanne grape about a month ago with the Chateau Beaucastel. This Yangarra was not as stone fruit fleshy as the old vine Beaucastel. Skinnsy notes from being fermented in ceramic eggs Two thirds fermented on skins with extended contact; one third fermented without skins. A full bodied white on the palate with notes of Quince with some viscosity and low acid finishing with some bitterness from those skins which is good. Grows on you with each sip. In summary a very good new world Roussanne. — 2 months ago

Œnothèque Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend

Youthful and meaty and still vibrant despite the 30 year age! Delish. Acidity that still thrives and competes with wines of youth. — 5 months ago
