Cornas Syrah 2018

9.5

This veers towards the Sozet school rather then the Beliando/Fauterie school. Mesmerizing nose of game, herbs, lavender, fresh tweed, blackberry, smoked meats, gravy, just impossibly complex and super super stunning. The black fruits are crystalline and focused. Wow. What purity. The lavender top note is truly spectacular. Palate is superb. Sweet fruited and with all kinds of freshness. Super acids. It’s 18 so there is a wall of tannin and also huge god level minerality. Olives galore on the palate. Stunning. But man does this need air. I’ll be back. Wow the energy on this wine is just incredible. Nose is crazy mineral now after 3 hours. Palate has picked up heft and minerality. So juicy. The most backwards young but maybe the most promising young vintage so far. — 13 days ago

Implicite Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2015

Fresh peach, apple. Very malic and dense, nectar-like. Extreme juice. Transparent: ultra clean, still very complex. Attractive on the nose and impressive from even the first sip. Finished just a touch sweet, otherwise pretty damn flawless. — 3 years ago

Safran Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2011

Drank at Rucola in cobble hill. Lovely round stone fruit butterscotch but subtle. 2011 they charged $37 for the bottle, $17 for the glass. Chenin blanc. Dessert wine but not too sweet. — a year ago
