Château Vieux Chantecaille

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

La Crau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2012

Effortless, elegant feel. Very balanced, relatively light on its feet with striking floral and balsamic notes. Forceful on the entry with broad mouthfeel and nervy mineral streak. Juicy wild berry fruit coating every fiber of the palate with ripe tannins. — 2 days ago

Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2005

1 hour decant only. Fruit was vibrant, however, on cork pop. Appearance is clear with some tiny amounts of sediment, medium ruby color intensity, starting to turn toward orangy rim. Herbaceous and savory notes including mild cooked mushrooms, poultry stock, a bit of cherry that carries through to the palate, with added tobacco. Medium bodied, medium- acidity. Dry. Tannins are present medium. Probably at peak. Drink em if you gots them!!

Vieux Papes

Red Rhone Blend

Whole Foods, $6

Some cheap wine is cheap because it's bad, some are cheap because they are simple and straightforward. This is the latter. Light in color and body, simple fruit forward nose and taste with very little tannins. Not too acidic, perfectly in the middle of dry and sweet. No off flavors or funky after tastes. This is just a plain, easy to drink fruit forward wine that is a great value for the price. My favorite ~$5 wine I've had thus far.

I like Pouilly Fuisse. Im no expert on this appellation so I can’t say how it compares to others but this was beautiful. — 5 days ago

Nicolas Renaud (Le Clos des Grillons)

Les Clos des Grillons Vieux Sage Red Blend 2017

4th wine this week from Clos de Grillons! We are on a roll here as this producer reminds me of L’Anglore style wines or Alain Graillot style wines depending on the cuvée. 100% Syrah which tasted similar to Graillot’s bottling. Intense black fruit but not heavy on the palate. — a month ago
