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.

A pretty color of ruby with a wide red rim.
On the nose cherries, blueberries, violets, spices, river rocks, earth, concrete, light vegetables and black pepper.
Medium bodied and airy, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with cherries, sweet raspberries, tobacco, spices, coffee, earth, vegetables, light alcohol and peppercorn.
Medium finish with fine grained tannins and red chili powder.
This is a young red blend from Southern Rhone. Showing fresh fruits with earth notes. Nice and interesting.
Needs an hour to open up and remove some of the acidity. Tannins show up after 60 minutes.
Already drinking nicely, but needs a few years to calm down. Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.
Showing mild complexity, and a little hot at the back of the throat right now. Gentle and elegant. Spicy and tangy.
Good by itself and better with food. Paired nicely with Camembert and crackers.
A blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah. Unfiltered and fined.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

Nice grenache nose with blackberry notes along with garigue and tapenade touches. This is simple yet very inviting. The palate is very well made with a very strong acid backbone, a nice blackberry note all along, somehow a milky mouthfeel, a powerhouse of a midpalate with a good grip and a very long finish with fruit and that grip, along with a tiny bitter touch. This is simple but very well made. More of this!! — 8 days ago
Château La Reyne - Cahors - grand vin - 2018
This is a complex wine! Cherry, chocolate, pencil lead on the nose. Wow this is inviting. The palate is showing a huge acid backbone, a great matter, some. Width with cherry all along, a good grip, that typical sandy, dursty tannin touch in mid palate before a very long fruity finish with that grain. One of the best value i recently came across!
