Vieilles Vignes Ceps Centenaires Santenay Pinot Noir 2017

This is really excellent stuff, 100+ years vines and it shows. Has enough stuff to stay in the cellar for several years but already open and inviting. First in a series of excellent reds made by white burgundy stars we have tasted this week. Spicy, mineral, loaded with red and dark fruits, and with excellent tannic spine, this is highly recommended. Buy what you find. — 4 months ago

La Meme Ceps Centenaires Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2017

Opened directly into decanter....but stole a first sip - bright cherry and pretty intense menthol out of the gate - felt illegal so waited and hour for second sip, which still had the cherry but menthol turns to soap, just overly intensely perfumed. Waited four hours. Super soft earth and delicate fruit, gorgeous with a pork shoulder. Demure, even coy - you have to keep finding it. — 7 months ago

This was a lot of fun. Reminded me how much I love the Vignes Centenaires though. I honestly feel that cuvée/vineyard completely eclipses this on so many levels but I’m also a complexity freak. This wine is pure pleasure and in this lifted boisterous character and style that I often see from lauded northern Rhône producers these days. 🤔 trained by Allemand you say? No doubt showing in many ways what that means. — 2 months ago

9.6

This is a sexy beast if I’ve ever had one. Nose is ill. Dank clay, moss, cigar, tobacco, berry liquer, flowers, feral. So so deep. Will take decades to fully express itself. Mineral. Clay. So much clay. Just so unique. Palate is so so creamy, concentrated and has beastly tannins that pump out unreal, thick berry and cherry fruit. So pure. So sweet. So thick. Painfully young. Super ripe tannins and loads of dry extract. Insanely ling finish. Like minutes. Sick wine. Way too young. But incredible. Better in 10-15 years. — 3 months ago

Vignes Centenaires Beaujolais Villages Gamay 2014

For many years I have found this wine to be subdued and shut down and have always wondered how that’s possible but NOW this wine was so expressive it became the winner for a few days of showing. Too much to say. This is expert winemaking with real unique clean and noble style. Still no one has caught on. Trained by Allemand in Cornas. — 3 months ago

Ceps Centenaires La Mémé Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2018

This is a rare bottling. 100+ years old vines. Highly concentrated and muscled wine. Like a château neuf on steroids. But lots of freshness and balance as well. Very long and opulent wine, and complex as well. Well worth the experience. But wait 7 to 10 years to have it at its best !! Very highly recommended ! — 8 months ago
