Rhône Grenache Blend

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. — 2 days ago

Domaine du Tunnel (Stéphane Robert)

Cuvée Prestige St. Péray White Rhône Blend 2020

Lyle Fass
9.6

Outrageous nose on this white cornas. Lemon gelato, light framing oak, insane granite minerality, so floral and fragrant. Broad, caressing and complex. Just piercing minerality. Palate is ripe, rich with lots of gras but so fresh and nimble while also expressing a wonderful fruit intensity (pineapple, guava, mango) and a controlled richness The minerality really brings out the freshness here. Long, pure and stunning. St. Peray is a great appellation currently.

Lovely vanilla extract with some air. Honeysuckle as well. Almost tannic from the minerality on the finish. What elegance. An unreal wine.
