Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2015

A producer who’s Crozes I have purchased a case of every year since 09. Excellent QPR that ages well. This was elegant & floral showing notes of black cherry, raspberry, crushed rock, olive, pepper, smoke & violet. — 13 days ago

Les Chenes Vert Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2016

Pretty wine but high acidity. Needs some air and room temp to shine. — a month ago

Vin de Pays des Côtes de Gascogne Merlot Tannat

Trying a 50/50 Merlot Tannat for my final wine of Merlot March. Lots more acid and silky tannins than a straight Merlot, big red cherries on the nose and pallet with an almost oily smooth mouthfeel. Perfect with our meaty paella! #gotm2020 — 12 days ago

Chablis Chardonnay 2018

Nice Chablis. Basically classic, hits all the right notes. Crisp and lemony with good mouthfeel and nice linearity with a good finish. — 18 days ago

Empreinte Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2017

Dan R

Rich and quite yeasty, an expressive, grippy chenin from a fantastic producer. Killer value at €11. Yellow fruit, citrus and herbs, rigid acidity. Almost too much on its own, needs some chicken in a cream sauce. A couple of years of softening will do it some good. — 7 days ago

Graillot Heathcote Syrah 2012

This is Alain Graillots Australian venture in Heathcote Victoria. Interesting to compare with his Crozes Hermitage from a few nights ago. This showed better IMO. Lovely spice and dried meat. More like Northern Rhone than Heathcote. Earthy and savoury. Showed better than a bottle in December 2019. — a month ago

Grande Garrique Vacqueyras Red Rhône Blend 2003

Of the older wines I have been pulling from my collection this is one of the real stars! Plump and sexy with aromas of blackberry jam, white pepper, toast and Asian spices. On the palate the richness of the tannins harmonizes with the finesse of the acidity. Black cherry , ripe blackberry, black currant, plum compote and sage finish with finish that lingers like the crack of a whip. It leaves a lasting impression! — 9 days ago

Encinas Bierzo Mencia 2017

Paella night! I know we’re supposed to do Rioja, but Bierzo is on the table tonight. Cracked pepper & blackberry nose. Full bodied, more dark berries and smoky notes cross the mid palate. Structured, but very approachable and enjoyable right now. — 16 days ago

Domaine Grand Veneur Les Champauvins Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2016

One of the more voluptuous, powerful Cote de Rhones, this is a concentrated super powerful wine. Black plum liqueur and blackberry mix with spice and lots of ABV. I like the big, powerful style, but I can see that it might not be for everyone. 2016 vintage on Mar 22, 2020 — 15 days ago
