Le Village Cornas Syrah 2015

Feral smelling but in the reductive way that Syrah can so easily become...if that makes sense. This characteristic softens with air and finds a groove after about 30min. Smells like a deli case with blue and black fruits and purple flowers. On the palate, powerful blue fruits herbs and spices. Big in the structure department too. There’s a whole lot to like here. I would love to revisit this in 10 years. — 3 days ago

Le Marie

Rouge de Lissart Red Blend 2018

Reminds me of a village burgundy type wine. Well balanced between fruit, earth, and acidity. Definitely worth a try and with food. — 8 days ago

Cavanos Saint Joseph Syrah 2016

Consumed directly after the 2015 Cornas “Le Village”. This was just a notch below that wine in my opinion. Right now, the structure is taking center stage and not allowing the fruit to deliver in the same way its cousin is giving. I also think the Cornas showed more complexity. Not that this isn’t endowed with fruit or complexity. A very lovely wine though. — 3 days ago

Domaine Georges Roumier

Chambolle-Musigny Pinot Noir 2017

Intense and muscular, nothing subtle about 2017. Very good depth for village and it continues to gain complexity and show some layers as it unfurls. Lots of tension and finesse showing black raspberries, pomegranate, crushed minerals and hints of topsoil. Finishes with very good length and lift. When you talk about village red wines that set themselves apart you think Fourrier’s Gevrey, Mugneret Gibourg’s VR (of course CLB too), and then there is Roumier’s Chambolle. Great now and even better later ❤️ — 7 days ago

Marchand-Tawse Champeaux Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Opened this by accident - had been reaching for the village and grabbed this from the cellar instead. Beautifully put together. Floral and delicate. Roses and dark cherry. Has an overall lifted and airy feel. — 5 days ago
