Comtesse Madeleine de Montfaucon Côtes du Rhône Clairette 2016

Palmer Emmitt
9.1

Flinty minerality, orange peel and a distinct and intense shot of herbes de Provence. The lack of fruit might leave you wondering where the 93 point RPWA score came from, but this is a focused, unique, and mind-bending wine from 140+ year old vines. Pairs awesomely with French fries. — 9 days ago

Château de Ségriès

Tavel Grenache Blend Rosé 2018

Bright and deep red. Shy nose and more present palate of pomegranate, citrus rind, dry red flowers, and anise fruit leather. Bracing acidity shores up the medium to full (for a rosé) body. Young Tavel giving a glimpse of what could come five to ten years on. A great wine with light “red wine” or heavier “white wine” dishes as well as an intriguing late summer/early fall sipper. Drink now or hold through 2028. — a month ago

Côtes du Rhône Villages Laudun Grenache Blanc Blend 2018

Star bright pale yellow. Abundant nose of white flowers and white peach. Medium full palate yields peach, coconut, magnolia petal, and dark quince. Medium plus acidity through the lengthy, slightly dark finish. While this would make a good wine for a big-bodied summer sipper, it (naturally) shines brightest with food. The bright acidity combined with the Rhône-typical layers of flavor will compliment heartier spring and summer fare as well as medium to soft cheeses. Classic white Rhône experience. I don’t foresee any significant development, but it should satisfy well into 2026. — 17 days ago
