La Doriane Condrieu Viognier 2020

Outstanding viognier from this legendary producer. Father’s Day gift from my son so I popped it immediately but I bet this would be amazing 5+ years from now! — 4 days ago

La Turque Côte-Rôtie Syrah

The “last” lala. A very big wine, salty, smoked meat. Approachable but will benefit from another 5 to 7 years in bottle. Potentially great. — 13 days ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

L'Hermitage Syrah 2016

A treat as I haven’t had a chave in a long time. A little young at this point but worth opening if you enjoy more fruit. Super elegant and relatively light in texture. — 25 days ago

Nariz: mora, arándano, aceituna, algo de especies, algo de violetas. Aromas primarios pero algo de evolution.

Boca: Tanino M, Acidez M, Alcohol M. Muy buen balance.

Domaine Jamet

Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2012

Amazing vintage for Jamet that you can drink now but will continue to develop for many years. Consistent with my many prior notes showing lots of dark cherry, raspberry, meat, blood, olive, pepper, spice & crushed violets — 24 days ago
