Télégramme Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend

Oh hell complex and juicy and fruity as f. Undercurrents of a mineral base. Picture those rocks that are mostly almost black but there is a speckle or so of white and that...is the mineral nature and it ballasts cocky-ass raspberries like this wine has an attitude. So damn good hope my (not so genius) tasting of a half bottle holds up. One last genius-ish thought: picture a newsies boy, cap and all doing a heel click while a Brooklyn winemaker toasts an old school french winemaker and that is your prettiness. I’ll pour it all into my Zalto. — 9 days ago

La Crau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc White Rhone Blend 2015

Absolutely stunning. Beautiful honeycomb and white pear grace the nose. These notes carry through offset by only the slightest acidity and minerality on the mid palate. The buttery notes in this wine stem from the texture vice the flavor. The conclusion offers the slightest hint of ripe green apple. A beautiful, unique wine, a must-have for special occasions. — 12 days ago
