Fascinating old Syrah from the Languedoc (label says 100% Syrah, 13.0 ABV), purchased on release, meaty, smoky, clean, balanced, this has held up amazingly well, medium-long finish, a Jeffrey Davies import from his early days of bringing in Languedoc wines (a most excellent portfolio back in the 1990s)!! — 4 days ago

This is one of the best Rose’ wines I’ve ever tried. Bursting with fruit aromas, it is bright yet smooth. It tastes very balanced, with no unpleasant acidity on the back end. Just an outstanding Rose’, and I love the beautiful and elegant bottle designs and glass stopper. Love this 2020 vintage!! — 8 days ago
There is a salty element to an otherwise very grenache nose with licorice and blackberry. There is a bit of a toasted touch too. This is very good. The palate is very well balanced and delicious. Strong acid backbone, good width with a bit of matter on the sides, a big bright blackberry fruit shining all along, and expanding midpalate with some spices and some tannins that caress and create a distorsion and a long blackberry and licorice finish that lasts for ever, with a pinch of salt. This is very good! Paired extremely well with fat duck breasts (magrets) on the barbecue ✌🏻 — 6 days ago
Very good bottle that gave aromas and flavors of razor sharp fruit, dried herbs, underbrush, black tea. Med body, med tannin, high acid, and a great finish. Had with flank steak, it perfectly complimented and elevated the meal. Carignan really shines bright here. — 7 days ago
Yum! We were in langudoc/rousillon several years ago, and missed this winner. Found it at Chez Foushee, Richmond. Great summer wine. — 8 days ago
Consistently great Chardonnay. Price has slowly increased over the years but still a steal at under $15. I actually have one grocery/wine department here that carries this (although it was on a very low shelf)!
Soft Brioche, almonds, orchard fruits, sea spray, nicely balanced! Alc. 14.5% goes down like candy!
@Sharon B you would like this! — 3 days ago
