Châteauneuf-du-Pape White Rhône Blend 2016

Waxy textured with good typicity, showing a yellow fruit core and stony finish. Quite tasty , if a bit on the straightforward side. — 3 days ago

L'Arbuel Condrieu Viognier 2016

@Delectable Wine misspelled name, but I'll take it, I guess.

A fantastic condrieu, and for my palate, definitely drink-now, by contrast to the current drink-by dates on Cellartracker (starting 2021). On the nose: candied ginger, tangerine, honeysuckle, amazing aromatics. On the palate: white-pepper spice, good viscosity, good supporting acidity, lemon oil, ginger, grapefruit pith and mineral oil. Excellent.

Arcane XV Le Diable Mourvedre 2015

On the nose sweet, spicy, exotic and jammy. Dark fruit, cloves, black pepper, a touch of well oiled leather & sandalwood. Seductive.
On the palate this is surprisingly fresh, lively & savoury - finely polished tannins and juicy acidity define the frame, with meaty fresh & stewed black fruit filling it nicely. Nice purity & definition. This is a very nice wine!

Cairanne Grenache Blend

Beautiful Rhone blend from a famous wine consultant! Lots of fruit, medium body - not as heavy as other rhone blends - acidity that dissipates in the finish. Vanilla, blackberry, earth. 2016 vintage was great but can surely stay for a few more years. — 10 days ago

Touche-Mitaine Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2019

Great value and a good reminder to maybe rebalance our purchases of chablis with a bit more chenin. Dry and slightly floral, great lemony nose and a lemon peel sensation. Nice, especially for < $20. — a month ago
