Domaine des Rutissons

Isère Etraire de la Dhui 2019

Lyle Fass
9.4

One of the best I sell that has somewhat of a cult following. It’s one of those wines that seems so familiar but is made from an odd grape in an odd place. But man does it work. Nose is floral and lifted. Gorgeous tiny berry mountain alpine fruit. It’s intense. Deep and grapey initially but it’s got substance. Incredibly clear and vivid minerals. Just arresting and original aromas. Superb concentration and what an awesome velvety texture. Superb depth and freshness. Stunning clarity and purity. Velvety tannins. What a showing. Best bottle of Rutissons I’ve ever had. — 17 days ago

Caillez-Lemaire

Chardonnay de la Vallée Brut Nature 2015

9.6

New tete de cuvee from Caillez Lemaire and their new highest end bottling. And it is STUNNING. The nose jumps out of the glass with all types of screaming minerals and wet earth. Spice. Green apple. Endless complexity. Sickness. It’s wafting and so so aromatic. Super yeasty. A nose that is dripping with character. Herbs as well. So so deep. Just an insane nose. 9.6. Only open 5-8 minutes and it’s changed 5-6 times. Sickness. Virginia was “hoping” I would like it. I wish I could be even as half as humble as her! Wow. That palate has flavor! Flava in my ear as the acid gets to my ear. RIP Craig Mack. Anyway this is bananas. Amazing sap and power. So sappy. Concentrated and so pure. Painfully intense. Wow, huge spice on the finish. So fresh and precise and wow is this long. What palate presence. Nose gets tons of saline and iodine and the palate develops a mineral sweetness that is stunning. Wow. This is sick. The palate presence of great BDB cannot be denied. A masterpiece. — 6 days ago

The newer vintage arrived last fall (2020) and it's finally warm enough outside to really appreciate drinking it!

Château Les Croisille

Silice Cahors Malbec 2019

New wave of Cahors. A good volume due to the very greedy type of grape variety that is Malbec. Black fruits, marked and stretched mineral notes, soft and loose tannins. Balanced tasting. Great drinkability for its price range.

Cahors nouveau style. Sur la fraîcheur et le fuit. Beau volume dû au cépage au combien gourmand qu’est le Malbec. Fruits noirs, notes minérales marquées et tendues, tanins souples et amples. Dégustation équilibrée. Superbe buvabilité pour sa gamme de prix.

Domaine La Millière

La Bessade Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2015

Dark garnet with blackish purple core. Inviting nose of black cherry, red apple, and cola. Full-bodied palate yields black cherry, raspberry, red apple peel, anise, and light patent leather. Supple medium plus tannins mid-palate to finish. Medium plus acidity. An excellent Rhône red that’s ready for any “red wine” situation from American steak dinners to medium and hard cheeses to cigars. Drinking wonderfully now, but will satisfy and develop through at least 2030. — 12 days ago

La Bete Vin de France Red Blend 2019

9.2

Love this wild Savoie kitchen sink red blend. Really a terrific wine for the money. Really vivid nose of pure cherry fruit and mountain spices. Fir trees. Hint of game. Almost sausage. Saucisson. But high toned and floral as well. Palate is ripe and clean with terrific clarity and freshness. Very energetic and linear with terrific length and lovely dash of mineral intensity on the finish. A great wine. Terrific concentration and the best most charming rusticity. Surprisingly persistent. I mean really persistent. — 17 days ago

Château Barouillet

Bergerac Blanc Sec Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2019

Natural Southwest French white blend for under 15$-Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, semillion & Chenin Blanc. I don’t like Alsatian blends but this I do: like a rich Muscadet. Floral but not heavy on the Sauvignon Blanc, balanced. Celebration of lifting of Covid restrictions in New York State, with friends on the Hudson — 3 days ago

Following in the great spirit of the Delectable community, I wrote the winemaker directly, in France. He responded by confirming that the spelling is indeed intentional and a play on the word crack!@Peter van den Besselaar
