Domaine Jean-Claude Marsanne

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2018

Nose: blackberry flower. Blackberry liquor. As this opens candied lilacs.

Palate : intense blackberries liquor. Hand crushed very ripe blackberries. Intense. … big vanilla. Lots of spice as this opens.

A well made biggish wine. Great for steaks or pork chops or duck.

@Conrad Green I  am assuming it has a long way to go. How prominent was the wood? Thanks

Yeah. It has many years ahead. Wood was definitely there but it didn’t scream out at you… it was well integrated. Modern in style but great material

Louis Claude Desvignes

La Voûte Saint-Vincent Morgon Gamay 2021

Cherry, violet, hay, a tiny touch of licorice too. This is quite exciting and profound. The palate is showing a massive acid backbone, some width and grip, some cherry notes, but the fruit is a little discreet. There are tannins popping up in the rear, disturbing the mouthfeel, powering up a tangy finish with cherry and a nice bitter note along with a tiny salty touch, almost sea breezesque if that makes sense. This is a serious beaujo, very different from fruit bombs and other crowd-pleasing usual expressions that people tend to rave about. This is gastronomy wine and playing in the same league as some other wines from a different varietal that grow a bit farther to the north. — 2 months ago

Clau de Nell Anjou Cabernet Franc 2020

2020. I wanted to try something similar in body to the Pinot Noir, but with different aromas and flavors because my daughter has become interested in trying new pairings. Lighter than the Pinot, and had a brett aroma when first opened that was new and unappealing at first, but when it opened up in the decanter, it was our favorite with the grilled lamb kebab. — 3 months ago
