Domaine Auguste Clape

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2020

2020 vintage. Super shroomy and massive black olive/tapenade in the nose. Too soon. Needs another year or two. Nearly a Bordeaux finish currently except for that pumping mushroom that won’t be denied. Medium body. — 19 days ago

Les P'tits Bouts Cornas Syrah 2018

Popped and poured and heavens to Betsy, the nose is sizzling with energy! The 2018 “Les p’tits bouts” pours a deep garnet with some violet color tones too. A near opaque core with some moderate staining of the tears. Medium+ viscosity. The nose is wild with blackberries, blueberries, deli case, black pepper, olive tapenade, violets, earth, and herbs. The palate is consistent with the nose. The finish is long; well over a minute. Tannin is medium++ and acid is medium+. This is a remarkably precocious Cornas with easy comparisons to Allemand and Clape. I expect a fabulous future for this wine and if this vintage is representative of Mickaël Bourg’s work, this is a producer well onto my radar. — 19 days ago

WNH event number two. Rhône varietal wines with TX BBQ...a match made in Heaven!

A true treat to try this next to the Clape Cornas. More fruit forward here with a darker fruit profile...even some blueberries. Heavier mouthfeel than the Clape. Smoked cedar, peppercorn. This wine in 5yrs or so would likely be incredible! Loved this. Thanks

Château de la Négly

Porte du Ciel Coteaux du Languedoc Syrah Blend 2004

Easily the best wine of the night. Amazing. Bold, tar, tobacco, vanilla, crazy finish and a sated nose. Yum. Still some more life ahead, decant heavily. — 4 years ago
