Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2020

A bit leather rich initially, but one hour later on, smooth. A bit spicy, but despite 2020, smooth compared with other wineries. CP quite good! 2nd day much better. 2020 @600, Kping -, 220803-220810 — 15 days ago

Domaine de la Janasse

Côtes du Rhône White Rhone Blend 2014

Crushed granite, fresh white flowers, green apples and citrus zest. Floral aromatics meet an oily grip on the palate. Firm acidity with texture and medium weight. Green apple fruits and minerality carry-forward. Touch of back-end heat. 50% Grenache Blanc, 15% Clairette, 15% Bourboulec, 10% Viognier, 10% Roussane. — 4 years ago

Château de Beaucastel

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2009

Love a good halfie! Revised up from a 9.0. Showing so much more earthiness and class than the last flamboyant Janasse or Julienne I had. — 2 years ago

Domaine Charvin

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2014

Tasted next to the Janasse VV from the same vintage. The Charvin was more red fruited and more tightly wound; unwilling to show all of its cards at the moment but there is undoubtedly a lot of character. Fiercely tannic. This has a bright future. — 4 years ago

Excellent Cotes du Rhône with good depth. Owned by the makers of Domaine de Janasse so you can’t go wrong. Incredible value! — 2 years ago

Candied walnut, vanilla custard, burned orange peel. Beautiful acidity but different from burgundy white. A bit heavier upfront but ends with a medium plus finish. — 2 years ago
