Dark ruby, very ripe strawberries, garrigue, fine tannin, some heat on the finish. A big, complex rosé that drinks more like a light red 😋 — 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 !

Domaine Auguste Clape

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2020

2020 vintage. Super shroomy and massive black olive/tapenade in the nose. Too soon. Needs another year or two. Nearly a Bordeaux finish currently except for that pumping mushroom that won’t be denied. Medium body. — 16 days ago

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. — 5 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. — 17 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.
