Chateau Saint Roch

Domaine Le Clos des Cazaux

Cuvée Saint Roch Vacqueyras Red Rhone Blend 2012

Aged southern Rhône plateauing I think. Garique nose. Red fruits on the palate, a bit stewed. I notice rosebottle, figs and wild strawberries. Medium acidity keeps it al in balance. Tertiary flavours all around: sunburnt dirt, leather, smoke, some tobacco, forest leaves. Medium long finish. Lovely wine. — 20 days ago

9.2

Mostly Marsanne and this clocks in at a whopping 15%! Nose is rich and ripe. Very pure. Fascinating Marsanne minerality. Buttery but high end French buttery. Smells big. Palate is quite elegant and shows less heat than the 14.5% Viognier. It’s still there but this is rich and dense for sure but also playful and light at the same time. Very juicy, lovely freshness and as the wine opens it retains more freshness and the heat goes away. Marsanne handles alcohol much better than Viognier. Nose gets much more refined and elegant as it airs out and wow that finish is super long. Really well made. Teetering between 9.2 and 9.3 right now. I’ll see where air brings this . — 15 days ago

Château Macquin (Saint Georges)

Saint-Georges-Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

2017 vintage. Pretty solid fruit balanced with tannins/structure. Really good QPR/bang for the buck. Finishes smooth without that greenish acidity that plagues most Bordeaux in this price range. — 9 days ago

9.6

Sick nose. Incense, spices, lavender, so floral and pretty. Orange rind and orange zest. Flower shop. Granite. So so pretty. Cote Rotie like nose.

Palate is so refined and juicy. Wow. What an intense wine. So gamey and meaty. Gravy almost. Blackberry and black fruits. Huge acids. So juicy and terrific fruit and purity. Velvety and sweet tannins and a level of class and refinement not even seen in the Aubert. Lovely and fresh. Really well balanced. Saturates the palate with a terrific fruit soak. Excellent wine. Needs maybe 5 years!

@Matthew Cohen new cuvee. No idea what it is because sylvain never answers emails.

Domaine Gilles Barge

La Ribaudy Saint-Joseph Marsanne 2017

Nose is gorgeous. Like a mountain air flowing over a field of tropical flowers. Beautiful. A hint of opulence but perfectly integrated and so elegant. Wow.

Palate is mineral. Light integrated fruit. Delicious. Lacks the density to be better than this but good I love this. Blind might have guessed savoie but doesn’t have that pine thing. But it’s that elegant. So clean and perfect. Seamless.

Long finish. Like drinking fresh cold creek water after a long hot hike.

This is insane for 30 minutes and then just very good afterwards. Not a wine to sit with methinks.

Bought from fass selections.

Château Barde-Haut

Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2010

This was awesome! 1hr+ decant and needed every bit of it. Dark red color. Amazing floral and perfumed nose. Medium tannins. Minimal fruit but lots flowers and earth. Chewy and deep. Long finish. Obviously a strong vintage, but producer seems very solid. Awesome QPR! — 13 days ago
