Vacqueyras, Southern Rhône

Tardieu-Laurent

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. — 9 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.

Delicious! Coffee, red fruit, tamarind, toasted coconut and toffee. Phenolic complexity, a bit of camphor and granitic mineral with a savory salty punch. Cocoa and red miso. Great cdr drinking well out of the gate but probably even better in four years. — 16 days ago

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. — 7 days ago
