Clau De Nell Cuvée Violette Anjou Cabernet Franc Blend 2018

Lyle Fass
9.6

Out of this world very ripe Cabernet Franc nose. Stunning depth. Cassis, red berries and so pure and almost glossy fruit. Lovely earthy lift. Tweed jacket, moss. Tree bark but that’s the background to the incredible ripe fruit. Huge florals as well. Big time violets. Wow. 9.7 nose. Sick! Palate is deep, structured and sappy with incredible depth and cut. So so pure and lovely hit of opulence in the mid palate. Drop dead purity and stunning length. Superb tiny berry fruit intensity and killer acids and freshness. Complexity starting already. So long. A stunning wine impeccably made. — 2 months ago

Cuvée Violette Syrah 2014

We pulled this from the cellar - originally from the winery during a trip to the Okanagan in the summer of 2016 . This is a very silky wine. Complex, powerful notes with violets, stewed dark fruit, wild blueberry, eucalyptus, white pepper with a hint of basil and bell pepper. A great Canadian wine and well worth the wait. It’s definitely a drink now. — 4 months ago

La Sarrasine Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2018

Already very balanced although still young. Association of Power and Finesse The fruit is still marked with well-melted light notes of oak. Deep concentrated notes of smoked ham, primary peppery and violette notes. Classic style. Beautiful gourmandise that will gain in wisdom with several years of cellar. 😋

Déjà très équilibré bien qu’encore jeune. Association de la puissance à la finesse. Le fruit est encore marqué soutenu par des notes d’élevages déjà bien fondues. Notes concentrée lardées fumées, notes primaires poivrées. Style classique. Belle gourmandise qui gagnera en sagesse avec plusieurs années de cave.

Saumur Cabernet Franc 2020

The charm of the Cab-franc de Loire in the expression of a cuvée to drink on youth. Variety notes in the spotlight: raspberry, violet, slate. 2020 is concentrated, bearing the stigma of solar vintages with almost liquorice notes. Blindly, it almost feels like you're in the Rhône-Nord (without pepper) Fine and gourmet. Drink refreshed 13/15 degrees.

Le charme du Cab-franc de Loire dans l’expression d’une cuvée à boire sur la jeunesse. Notes variétales à l’honneur: framboise, violette, ardoise. 2020 est concentré, portant les stigmates des millésimes solaires avec des notes presque réglisse. A l’aveugle on se croirait presque dans le Rhône-Nord (sans le poivre) Fin et gourmand. À boire rafraîchi 13/15 degrés.

Les Perlines Valais Syrah 2020

SyrahSession#2Wine#1
Ruby, Violin, translucent and vibrant color. Gilliard is a Swiss domain in Valais. Cuvée honoring the fruit. Seductive nose on the freshness of youthful Syrahs: violet, lupine, blueberry and mountain berries... with aeration, pepper imposes itself along the entire length of the palate carrying a loose body without looking like it. The acidity is lively and brings charm to this tasting. The winemaking is fine and controlled. Northern expression of the syrah full of nuances, with contained strength.

Robe Rubis, Violine, translucide et éclatante.
Gilliard est un domaine Suisse du Valais. Cuvée mettant le fruit à l’honneur. Nez séduisant sur la fraicheur des Syrah de jeunesse: violette, lupin, myrtille et baies des montages.. avec l’aération le poivre s’impose sur toute la longueur du palais portant
un corps ample sans en avoir l’air. L’acidité est vive et apporte du charme à cette dégustation. La vinification est fine et maîtrisée. Expression septentrionale de la syrah tout en nuances, avec une force contenue.
