Domaine De La Colline Saint Jean

Domaine des Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun)

Saint-Amour Gamay 2018

9.0

Sappy, grainy-textured, plump, spicy and meaty, this full-throttled expression will need a year or two to settle down. Bursting at the seams. 2018 bojo personified, on the power side of the power /elegance spectrum. As always, excellent value from Brun. — 2 days ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Circa J.L. Chave Sélection Saint-Joseph Roussanne 2016

The aromatics are insane. Floral and fruit jumps from the glass. Blueberry. Honeysuckle. Bright and lovely. The body is substantial and requires food. Thick and rich. Opening took over 45mins. — 13 days ago

(Saint-Jean-de-Mauvrets) Chenin Blanc Anjou AOC 2017

Chenin Blanc, much like Chardonnay, truly exemplifies a sense of place. The environment, particularly soils, play a strong role in development of the wine. I adore Chenin from all corners of our globe, from sweet to mineral-driven, it almost has as much diversity as, dare I say, Riesling.
A solid buy at $14, prior notes apply; Chenin I always say I need more of you in my life...

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2017

Too young but you can tell this will be great with some aging. Blackberry, smoked meat and black pepper. Perfect with grilled porterhouse. — 13 days ago

La Porte Saint Jean La Perlée Anjou-Saumur Chenin Blanc 2017

Substantially above a tasting that included more prestigious appellations and more expensive bottles, all in the same region and all in chenin blanc. Best VfM of a very enjoyable tasting. Nice balance and yet a subtle acidity leaving much to hope for latter years. Drink some, keep some. — 21 days ago

Château Jean Faux

Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend

2016 vintage. The label may indicate humbly "Bordeaux Supérieur", but this estate makes absolutely amazing wines. A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, biodynamically farmed. Beautiful nose with ripe black fruit (cherries, blackberries) and violets. Concentrated fruit and subtle spices, combined with polished tannin, and very good depth and length, this could be easily mistaken for a much more expensive Saint Emilion in a blind tasting. Stunning value at 17,90 euro. — 12 days ago

J.L. Chave Sélection Mon Coeur Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2018

Maybe the best Cotes du Rhône I’ve had. Drinking like a Saint Joseph. Pepper, cured meats, brambly fruit, crushed rocks, wild herbs, soft mouthfeel, bright acid and medium body. — 8 days ago
