Clos Saint Michel

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2019

Mousset family has managed Clos Saint Michel for more than 6 decades, in Southern Rhône they have been active in wine for Much longer. Deep Ruby with aromas of red fruits, herb and spicy notes, blend of 40% Grenache and 30% each Mourvèdre and Syrah, all aged in older barrels. On the palate flavors of black cherry and ripe blackberry with cigar box and black pepper spice. Big firm tannins, nicely integrated, good balanced, long finish with solid ending. — 12 days ago

Château Mourgues du Gres

Galets Rosés Costières-de-Nîmes Rosé Blend 2021

Watermelon and some bubble gum character up front. But great concentration- a lot of fruit, candy, texture, depth. Some sweetness. This is a rosé to drink now or age. — 5 days ago

Brunier & Lynch

Les Pallieres Racines Grenache Blend 2016

Stewed fruit and red candy. Nice spicy notes. A dusty violet smell. Cherries. Also some cocoa, black licorice and woody tannins on the finish. Elegant overall, this shows an expressive, not overly modern approach. While I find myself wishing it was a touch less ripe and sweet, that is the style I suppose. — a day ago

Domaine Auguste Clape

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2020

2020 vintage. Super shroomy and massive black olive/tapenade in the nose. Too soon. Needs another year or two. Nearly a Bordeaux finish currently except for that pumping mushroom that won’t be denied. Medium body. — 12 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Gigondas Red Rhône Blend 2016

Quite contained 30 minutes after decanting. Stewed plums and black pepper. Very savoury and earthy on the palate - prunes showing through. Fine yet firm tannins to finish off. Good value coming from Gigondas. Love this style of wine. — 14 days ago

I adore this winery. Defined try their other wines, especially the Cote Rotie and CdP Cuvee Speciale (100% Grenache)

I bought the Gigondas in a mixed dozen all from the 2016 vintage. Will look forward to trying the Cote Rotie and the CdP in the near future.

Château de la Gardine

Châteauneuf-du-Pape White Rhône Blend 2013
