Côte - Rotie 2017

Should have listened to my gut. Way too early to open this. Had some diacetyl character that took an hour to blow off and was extremely primary at this age. Last glass was better and was starting to reveal notes besides just the brambly fruit but I feel I only got a slight glimpse at how epic this might be with some age. — a month ago

Le Grand Roc Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Pop and pour. My kind of sancerre: gooseberry, eucalyptus, grass and mineral.notes. On the palate: fantastic acidity, lemon, grass, very hi-toned with lpad of crushed rock on a solid, slightly spicy finish. — 3 months ago

Condrieu Côte Chatillon Viognier 2016

Nose: nose is pretty flowers.

Palate is still a bit oaky. Nice fruit. As this opens just amazing delicious tropical fruit. Oak integrates.

NOT a pop and pour.

Bought from fass selections.

Côte-Rotie Syrah 2017

Opened yesterday, mainly to be ready for today, but this btl was so.compelling there wasn't much left for today! On the counter unrefrigerated overnight. Lovely nose: loads of brambles, olive brine, soft charcoal, beef blood, black raspberry, funk...such classic syrah. Fantastic acid on the palate; great density, spicy, pepper, red and black fruit, with such beautifully elegant tannin on the finish. Just a baby, but this is already excellent. — 3 months ago
