Monthly WTF wine group meet up. This month is new world vs old world Rhône’s. All wines tasted blind. 3 flights.

I pulled this out as a bonus bottle as I wanted to compare it against the other C-H. This was significantly darker in profile. Violets, underripe blackberry, charcoal, and a streak of iron down the middle. Chewy tannins.

Looks like a fun tasting.

Domaine Alain Pautre

Chablis Chardonnay 2017

Tasty wine. Needed some time to open but was very balanced and expressive when it did. Less mineral and more oak than expected, but it works. — 10 days ago

Just a delicious, fun, vibrant rose. Bright acidity, tropical fruit and unripe banana. QPR right where it needs to be. — 21 days ago

Chambolle-Musigny Pinot Noir 2015

Bright ruby color. Red fruit, roses and light spice in the fairly open nose. Soft and inviting palate, with a slight tannic edge. Ends gracefully. Delicious but has the bones to age. Excellent entry level wine from a great producer. — 6 days ago

Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2014

Crunchy red fruits; tart; and modest flavors suggestive of orange, green tea and cherries. More cellar time required to flesh this out. — 15 days ago

Graillot Heathcote Syrah 2012

This has always been a wine to decant to blow off rubbery notes in its youth and now some more complex reductive and bottle age notes. That reduction is hard to ignore but plenty of good structure and mature fruit still makes for interesting and satisfying drinking, especially alongside a perfectly grilled scotch fillet. 👍🏼 — a month ago
