Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet (Hervé Souhaut)

Saint Joseph Marsanne Roussanne 2015

White pepper, citrus rind, pineapple, wildflower honey on the nose. Palate concentration is very good with good acid and minerality. Almost great. Still, to my palate this succumbs to the ripeness of the vintage on the finish… a little cloying. — 6 days ago

Domaine des Billards (Héritiers Loron)

Clos des Billards Saint-Amour Gamay 2019

American geography ignoramus that I am, little did I know that the Northernmost tip of the Rhone- Cote Rotie- is the kissing cousin of Beaujolais. St. Amour is more midpoint, but has that great granite terroir which makes this long standing Cru Bojo (& under 20$) a perennial fave. It’s that mineral tautness I love. — 3 hours ago

Guilhem et Jean Hugues Goisot

Exogyra Virgula Saint-Bris Sauvignon Blanc 2019

An old friend, whom I am ecstatic to find again. Basically a Burgundy estate that was exiled from Chablis & is part of Côte d’Auxerre. Concentrated green fruits, lithe, delicate & powerful all at once. The balance is remarkable-I can’t imagine a better QPR. Polaner importer. — 11 days ago

Château Fleur Cardinale

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2013

Located to the east of the village of Saint-Émilion, on one of the high points of the appellation and it extends over 20 hectares. Ch was promoted to "Saint-Emilion Grand cru classé" in 2006. A blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark Ruby with ripe fruit aromas & herb notes. On the palate black cherry & raspberry, currant-like, with tobacco & cacao notes. Dusty fine tannins, long finish ending with earthy mineral tones, drinking fine now! — 7 days ago

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Ming L
9.6

Deep nose of ripe plum, cassis, blackberry, cedar, dark roasted coffee beans, herbal spices, hint of cigar box and violet. Warm and soft lightly extracted dark fruits lead the initial attack. Dense yet smooth with impeccable balance. Full of energy. Firm polished tannins. The pairing of 14 days dry age Rohan duck was magnificent.

Immensely powerful with old world charm and grace, this 10’ Saint Julian earns a perfect score from WE, and I think it’s deservedly so.
