Les Chailles Cornas Syrah 2018

100% Syrah with a medium ruby hue and medium(+) aromas and flavors that emerge from the glass with a balance of ripe cherry, red plum, blackberry, blackcurrant, blueberry, boysenberry next to violet, black peppercorn, cured meat, smoke, cedar, sandalwood, vanilla, clove, nutmeg and cardamom.

This wine has complexity for days with fine-grained, integrated tannins, high alcohol (14%), a round mouthfeel, and lingering finish.

An excellent pairing with ribeye on the grill (marinated in olive oil, garlic, rosemary, and aged balsamic). So delish.

Domaine du Clos de Sixte Lirac Red Rhone Blend 2020

Took 30 minutes to unwind, but then—luscious red fruits, toasted vanilla, ample medium body, and a grippy finish. Hoo yeah — a month ago

La Guiraude Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 1995

A stunning nose that roars out of the glass…. Meat, iron, violets, sour cherry. Black pepper Fantastic. The palate doesn’t quite live up to the nose. Nice precise smoky fruit and a rather one dimensional finish. A wine of two halves. — 3 months ago

Domaine Alain Burguet

Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2014

It shows quite clear GC features. Fineness but with robust. Drinkable, but much enjoyable if keeping more years. 2014 @, Fruit, 240424 — a month ago

Les Beaumonts Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1998

1998 vintage. Above age-appropriate fill. Great cork. Quite a bit of sed-some chunky, some powdery. Decanted and tasted after 15 minutes, 45 minutes and 1.5 hours. Respectable color. Still medium body. Nose a mix of thin, muddy, clay earth, morels and rhubarb. Flavors all that plus some muddled raspberry and a splash of black tea. Initially, a bit shy (9.1). Started to pick up steam at the second, 45 mins open taste. By 1.5 hrs, it was rolling. Could have used another hour in the decanter (as it may have yielded a 9.4) but the grabbing hands grab all they can. It's a competitive world. Can see this going another 7-8 years without noticeable, downward change but it wouldn't surprise me to find that extended to 10-12 years. 3.20.24. — 2 months ago
