insane value and literally spitting distance from cote rotie

Jeanne Gaillard

Collines Rhodaniennes Marsanne 2019


Lovely wine, from daughter of Pierre Gaillard, delicious effort here for under $20. Golden colored / effusive nose of apricots, nectarines, orange marmalade, honeyed, fresh cut flowers & hay, bit waxy - some lanolin, leesy, just textbook varietal nose. Same on palate, had that weight, that vigor, unctuous & silky, and plenty of fruit w/out being overpowering. Bone dry, enough acidity to keep everything moving through finish. — 9 months ago

Domaine Jamet

Collines Rhodaniennes Syrah 2020

Smells like your kitchen on a Saturday morning.

Warming blueberry pancake syrup, splattering bacon grease, chicory steeped coffee, baked cinnamon and nutmeg, and fresh air passing through open windows directly through a bouquet of violets.

Charismatic and vibrant, it's also chewy with a rich, sweet concentrated core of raisins, dates, and compote.

Not as complex and distinct, and multilayered as I was expecting, but hard to complain in a weekend state of mind.

Domaine Georges Vernay

Le Pied de Samson Vin de Pays des Collines Rhodaniennes Viognier 2019

Sunday funday with a little Viognier…

Aromatics and flavors offer pronounced notes of rose, elderflower, geranium alongside wet stone, honey, beeswax, orange peel, tangerine, spiced pear, nutmeg.

The body and mouthfeel are rich and creamy.

As a Vin de Pays — IGP Des Collines Rhodanienne — by Domaine Georges Vernay (winemaker Christine Vernay) it has all of the trappings of a Condrieu at a more affordable price. Cheers!

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2001

Delectable Wine

Cathy Corison's 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a very pretty wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Sweet dried cherry, mint, licorice, spice, tobacco and dried herbs are all signatures of a wine that has reached its plateau of maturity. There is more than enough freshness to ensure at least another handful of years of fine drinking, but I would not push my luck on aging. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, April 2023) — 8 months ago

The Signature Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2018

At a school reunion in Brisbane at the Regatta Hotel Boatshed last Saturday. I selected this from the menu. The group loved it and we consumed several bottles. No formal notes but this was from the excellent 2018 vintage in South Australia. Dark fruits with well judged oak. A full bodied Cabernet Shiraz blend with great intensity and length. I have a few bottles in my cellar which I won’t be touching for many years. Destined to become one of the great “Signatures”. — 10 months ago

Domaine Faury

Collines Rhodaniennes Syrah

First note: black pepper galore. As it opens the pepper dissipates, leading to dried flowers and chalky earth. Under-notes of cherry. Great acidity with moderate tannins. — a year ago
