Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2017

Popped and poured and the nose is incredible right off the bat. Crushed fresh grapes/some sort of magic grape soda. Lifted purple and blue fruit. Flowers. Tart and so transparent with a piquant, foxy, brambly, currant-y quality that keeps your nose in the glass. Wow, unpacking this is such a pleasure. Keeps going with blood, gravel, mint, subtle smoke and lingering sweetness. I love this wine and I’m kicking myself for only buying 2 bottles. Bloody elegant. No joke.

Holy shit. 24 hours and this is singing. 9.4–>9.5

Cuvée Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2018

One of the few producers that I purchase each and every vintage. I find that Laurence Feraud’s wines are consistently some of the more interesting and enjoyable wines made in all of Chateauneuf du Pape; particularly when value comes into play. This bottle is my first experience with her 2018 vintage and the first bottle of a small tranche that I swooped up upon release. Popped and poured; consumed over 5 hours. The color is deep ruby with a near opaque core; glossy and gorgeous to behold. Medium+ viscosity. On the nose, this is classic Pegaü with loads of dark cherry and bramble fruit, a veritable hillside full of garrigue, lavender, black pepper, and something that reminds me of old books. On that palate, the fruit is equally generous, brambles and cherries, exotic spices, Herbs de Provence and a somewhat sanguine-like character to it. Substantial structure, though it seems to be a notch lower than the previous three vintages at this point in its young life. The tannins are very sneaky. Almost imperceptible for the first hour and yet, by hour four, they were very much making themselves known (in the Medium+ range). Acid is also Medium+ indicating these have an exciting life ahead. The finish lasts for well over a minute. All in all, another lovely Pegaü that will likely live in the shadow of some of the more heralded vintages in the last ten years however, that doesn’t mean this isn’t a stunner. Absolutely lovely stuff and I very much look forward to enjoying these well into the 2030’s. — 4 days ago

Château des Tours

Réserve Vacqueyras Red Rhône Blend 2012

Hitting the spot after a long day of tasting Rose. The 2012 Vacqueyras is in a bueatifully place today and reminds me quite a bit of the 2011 CdR from Chateau des Tours, which happens to be on my short list of dessert island wines. A bouquet that mixes rhubarb pie, crushed strawberries and mint with hints of Madagascar vanilla and smoke. It's just pure juicy pleasure on the palate, sweet yet focused and balanced, and just goes on and on through the spicy, candied orange-tinged finale. Don't overthink this, just enjoy with abandon. — 2 days ago

Château des Tours

Réserve Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2010

A bit of spritz initially. Then the magic happened. Lovely cherry fruits, sandalwood, with tons of Provençal herbs. A hint of burnt sugar on the very long finish. Delicious with roasted chicken. My last bottle. — 21 days ago
