Cuvée Classique Vacqueyras Red Rhone Blend 2015

Meat and soil on the nose (just opened), but also baking spices and vanilla. Lovely fruits as well. And damn if this isn't a classic, gorgeous, and complex Rhone. A wee bit of grippy tannin, more fruits, and lots of smiles on this face. So lovely. — 4 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. — 20 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.

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. — 8 days ago

Châteauneuf-du-Pape White Rhône Blend 2013

Nice rhone white. Better than the last bottle we had. Some tropical fruits. Nice balance and body and mouthfeel. Acid slightly lower but still a refined finish. — 11 days ago

Le Temps est Venu Côtes du Rhône Grenache 2020

A solid Côte-du-Rhône, in terms of quality/price/pleasure ratio. Dark garnet-violin dress. Complete nose, intense black fruits, menthol, garrigue, mineral notes promising a beautiful relief. In the mouth it is very balanced, supple, fruity, peppery (syrah), licorice and spicy nuances with fruit and minerality. Superb for its price!

Un Côte du Rhône des plus solide, pour ce qui est du rapport qualité/prix/plaisir. Robe grenat-violine sombre. Nez complet, fruits noirs intense, menthol, garrigue, notes minérales promesse d’un beau relief. En bouche c’est très équilibré, souple, fruité, poivré (syrah), réglisse et nuances épicées avec du fruit et de la minéralité. Superbe pour son prix !
