Le Rouvre Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2018

Just what I want in a Crozes. So earthy and mineral on the nose. Just wafting out of the glass with dirty crushed granite and feral scents. Some rich blackberry fruit and dried beef too. Broad and very open on the palate. Rich savory flavors all over the place. Some tannin provides a bit of scaffolding, but this is all about now. (I sometimes refer to a good Crozes as “slutty” Syrah, but I probably should avoid terms that have historically been used disparagingly, even though I mean it in a good way!) — a month ago

Les Bambins Saint Amour Gamay 2020

Lovely, classy Beaujolais village level gamay, 2020 vintage enjoying early in 2024.

Goes well with cheese and crackers and staying indoors on cold winter nights.

Hermitage White Rhone Blend 2020

Tightly wound nose, lots of beeswax, white florals and some stone fruit, rounded by oak. Palate in unfortunately alcohol-first (I guessed 14.5 but it’s 15!) but layers of texture. Good bit hot, more pedigree than magic — 3 months ago

Great stuff. Met all expectations and more. Full span of fruit, spices and more, with an everlasting finish. Just hope I could find other bottles on shelves. — 7 days ago

Mon Coeur Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2020

Really liked this one. I wasn't expecting it to have this much body. Notes of black cherry, a little bit floral, and a lot of slate. — 21 days ago

Ermitage Cuvée Cathelin Hermitage Syrah 1991

The nose on this is spectacular. Deep and meaty, with intense gamey fruit. A rounded delicious intensity. This is a spectacular wine. So full of life. Soulful and profound. The quality of fruit is amazing. Wow. — 3 months ago
