Château Saint Ahon

Domaine Julien Cécillon

Babylone Saint-Joseph Syrah 2016

Very dark in color, so surprising when the palate shows more red fruit than anything else. This has some savory character and some acidic structure, but tannins are a bit soft. The nose is cracked pepper and some darker fruit. This is a nice wine, but I’d say it drinks more like a balanced new world offering than a St Joseph. — a day ago

Bret Brothers

En Combe Saint-Véran Chardonnay 2017

Wow this wine is singing and it’s just a baby!! This is probably the most exciting Wine I’ve had in a while, meaning that it jumped out of the glass and kind of cast a spell on us. Classic white burgundy profile: apples, pears, rocks and some chamomile tea but also with this touch of lightning that makes it magic!  perfect with homemade chicken Pho but wd be perfect with many things 🌟❤️ — 4 days ago

Domaine les Alexandrins

Saint Joseph Syrah 2015

9.4

This is having a great moment. Smoke, olives, dark berry fruit, blueberry. Huge granite and deep mineral tones. Juicy, so fresh, deep and concentrated with outrageous purity and a long finish. Loads of medium to dark berry fruit and really really long finish and also serious structure. What a showing. This has got 15+ years ahead of it but is fun today. These wines will last a long time. — 11 days ago

Pierre Gonon

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2016

Love every vintage of Gonon- the best St. Joseph IMO. So expressive and giving seemingly at any age, as it was here with 2016. My second 2016 in the last few months. Signature inky purple. Deep and intense with great texture showing black fruits, liquid minerals, newly bloomed violets, black olive and hints of cacao. Wonderful concentration, energy and finesse. Stains the palate with a long and assertive finish. Excellent. — 14 days ago

Domaine Chanson (Chanson Père et Fils)

Les Pitengerets 1er Cru Saint-Aubin Chardonnay 2011

For a 30$ wine at the time this was great but what remains should be consumed fast — 2 days ago

Cavanos Saint Joseph Syrah 2016

Consumed directly after the 2015 Cornas “Le Village”. This was just a notch below that wine in my opinion. Right now, the structure is taking center stage and not allowing the fruit to deliver in the same way its cousin is giving. I also think the Cornas showed more complexity. Not that this isn’t endowed with fruit or complexity. A very lovely wine though. — 6 days ago

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

9.2

Allen Brothers Ribcap wine.

2004 not the best Bordeaux vintage but, certainly not bad. What was disappointing was how not ready this was to drink. Normally, a lesser than grand vintage 14 years in bottle Cos would have blossomed better. Good but, not what I was hoping for with my Ribcap. Still showing a fair amount of primary characteristics & a touch astringent.

It will be 5-8 years before I open another.

Truly one of the more grand Chateaus in Bordeaux.

Domaine de la Cotelleraie

Gérald Vallée Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil Cabernet Franc

Huge waft of cranberry/blueberry fresh picked.
Tangy, zippy, bright fruits., a hint of herbaceous green herbs, high acidity makes this just one fun wine. Heavier of the light bodied spectrum. A lovely wine.
